Sweden is basically the craziest place on Earth. Its only exports are hot blonde chicks who get cheated on by their golfer husbands and metal bands who like Satan*. And it’s winter for something like 14 months a year up there. Just the craziest.
To prove this tenuous point I have made for the purpose of making really stale jokes about Sweden*, a black metal band called Watain have gone gold in Sweden, selling more than 10,000 copies of their Reaping Death in two weeks. Above is a video of Watain in action. They claim they view their gold disc as “a trophy of a successful hunt” of your children’s souls. Tough day to be your kid, I guess. [Daily Swarm]
*- I refuse to mention their total fucking-up of the meatball, and that one Muppet who is Swedish. Fozzie Bear.
