Gorgoroth, My New Favorite Satanic Black-Metal Band

Listen to that name… “Gorgoroth” …It’s so… Viking.  So Dongeons and Dragons.  The following are links to a 5-part documentary about the band, and all the controversy surrounding them, particularly their singer called “Gaahl.”  You gotta love that name too.   I guess he tortures people and drinks their blood and stuff like that.  

The name “Gorgoroth” is derived from Tolken‘s Lord of the Rings books.

At their shows they have been known to feature goat heads on sticks and other charming bits of satanic stage decor.   This is a fun documentary to watch.  It also gives some interesting background on the whole Satanic Rock genre, particualy the “Norwegian Black Metal Scene.”  Hmmm.  Fun stuff.  I’d love to go to one of their shows.
