The band would also bury their clothes prior toperformances.

    Euronymous was the owner of a record shop by the name of Helvete (the Norwegian word for Hell)and held meetings with otherBlack Metal band members in the store's basement. They referred tothemselves as The Black Metal Circle or The Black MetalMafia.
