The Finnish barbarian stormfront opens up again. Already ablaze in prominence and prolific influence are the likes of Satanic Warmaster, & Goatmoon. It is as if the blacksmiths were busy forging their hammers on the stone, and here they produced one of the rarest forms of metal, black metal. The

Word Sound and Power are all alive in this very thought altering interview/conversation between Daniel Menche, Mamiffer and Locrian. It should be noted that this was Menche’s first time very coming up with questions for someone to answer and from my point of view they were honest and induced some
