Darkthrone Drummer gets Elected

2016-09-13 by Dan Foster | 61 Comments
Darkthrone's Fenriz was recently elected to be a representative of Kolbotn, Norway. He was originally asked to be on a list of backup representatives; however, the public went head over heels with his campaign slogan: "please don't vote for me".

After the election, Fenriz conveyed his excitement with the following statement in an interview with CLRVYNT magazine:

"I wasn’t too pleased, and I’m not too pleased about it. It’s boring. There’s not a lot of money in that, either, I can tell you!"

Read the full interview here: http://clrvynt.com/fenriz-darkthrone-interview/
Darkthrone's next album Artic Thunder is set to be released on October, 14th.

Drumming? I love drumming, big fan of drumming. I just want to make sure we get the right tom-toms. This country has made some bad tom-toms, I want to get GOOD tom-toms.

Q: Did your cat get voted in with you? Is she obligated to go to meetings as well?

A: Aw … no, she’d really hate that. That would be impossible, like a Blackadder episode or something.

Cynics might claim this is a publicity stunt with a new album coming, but if they knew Fenriz they'd know he hates publicity and doesn't even play live. The guy's just about music.
