I think some of the time he does speak a lot of sense, but a lot of the time he's trying too hard to be intellectual and also he's pretty much a gigantic shithead and never knows when to shut up.

isnt this ecxactly what black metal is

There have been a number of instances of black metal stars who said things in print that they probably thought were funny or shocking but were taken more seriously than they intended, sort of a side effect of a mysterious family of scenes where image is so important.

the quote is being taken out of context a bit

 

TM joined a black metal band on an album and is now starting a new project with another bandmate from Chelsea Light Moving which will have a black metal influence

An Apology

08-22-14

August 22 2014

2016 PST

For the last 9+ hours, I have been answering letters from people from all over the world. The anger is off the scale and in my opinion, well placed.

 

The article I wrote in the LA Weekly about suicide caused a lot of hurt. This is perhaps one of the bigger understatements of all time. I read all the letters. Some of them were very long and the disappointment, resentment and ringing clarity was jarring.

 

That I hurt anyone by what I said, and I did hurt many, disgusts me. It was not at all my intent but it most certainly was the result.

 

I have had a life of depression. Some days are excruciating. Knowing what I know and having been through what I have, I should have known better but I obviously did not. I get so mad when I hear that someone has died this way. Not mad at them, mad at whatever got them there and that no one magically appeared to somehow save them.

 

I am not asking for a break from the caning, take me to the woodshed as much as you see fit. If what I said has caused you to be done with me, I get it.

 

I wrote something for the LA Weekly that they will post on Monday.

 

I wanted to get this out at this moment.

 

I am deeply sorry. Down to my marrow. I can’t think that means anything to you, but I am. Completely sorry. It is not of my interest to hurt anyone but I know I did. Thank you for reading this. Henry
