Gaahl to Star in Black Metal Musical – Former Gorgoroth frontman Gaahl has been cast in a ‘black metal musical’ based on the concept album ‘Svartediket’, which is in turn based on myths involving a lake of that name outside of Bergen,Norway. Yep, three words that aren’t often in a sentence together – “black”, “Metal” and “musical”.  Conjures visions of corpse painted ballerinas running around in tutu’s, doesn’t it?  Ok, maybe that’s just me.

Anyhow,  if you follow the link you’ll see that Gaahl continues to spew his anti-christian rhetoric (gee, he sang for a black metal band and he hates Christians – go figure) but this time has captured the attention of the media in general & Lutheran bishop Halvor Nordhaug in particular. Seems His Excellency believes Gaahl “displays some scary attitudes by defending church burnings”. Ok, I would agree that extremist viewpoints condoning violence of this nature could understandably be construed as  ‘scary’. Or ‘insane’. Score one for the Bishop.

But here’s where it gets interesting. Gaahl is reportedly gay.  So if it’s ok to believe “We have to remove every trace from what Christianity, and the semitic roots, have to offer this world” as he states in the 2005 documentary “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey” then does he also agree that those of an opposing viewpoint towards HIS sexuality have that same right?  Is gay-bashing justified??

I think this is clearly an example of “eye for an eye and the world goes blind”.  Gaahl – your hypocrisy is showing.  And I don’t mean Pete Tägtgren’s band either.  Perhaps before recommending that the black masses continue senseless church burnings, you should first consider your own glass house, hmmm?

    What the hell has being gay to do with church burnings? I don’t see a connection.

    The point was that if Gaahl wants to recommend a violent recourse towards those of a differing religious viewpoint than his own, he should consider the fact that he himself is apart of a much maligned & persecuted sexual orientation. So are gay bashers justified in that same rhetoric, if it applies to him? I think not. In fact, I think intolerance – be it of other religions OR of sexual orientations – is just plain ignorance masquerading as a “cause”. Gaahl shouldn’t espouse mindless violence as a solution to his perceived problems anymore than someone ELSE should consider mindless violence against him. Two wrongs do not make a right.
