BLABBERMOUTH.NET - MAYHEM Bassist To Have Evil Spirits Driven Out Of Him On Norwegian National TV

Bob Larson, an American radio and television evangelist and one of the leading practitioners of modern, Christian exorcisms, will conduct an exorcism next week on Jørn Stubberud, best known as the bassist in the legendary Norwegian black metal band MAYHEM (where he performs under the stage name Necrobutcher). The entire event will be filmed by NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation), the Norwegian government-owned radio and television public broadcasting company and the largest media organization in Norway, for a special program which will be aired in Norway in October.

Speaking to the German edition of the Metal Hammer magazine at this past weekend's Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany, Stubberud said, "NRK is sending me over to Phoenix, Arizona next week. There's this famous preacher. I'm not a believer, so I think he's a quack. A very religious guy. He's an excorcist; that's what he does. I'm just there for the fun of it. He's gonna perform an exorcism on me on national TV. So it's gonna be wild as fuck and, of course, I don't expect to suddenly be free from some demons or whatever. I'm just there for the fun of it and for the hell of it."

He added, "All religious people, when they talk about [how] they talked to God or God talked to them, stuff like that, I know it's a lie. Because they look at all the people, they speak in tongue, it's a mass, they get into that stuff, they think, 'If I behave like that guy, all the people will think that I truly have an open connection straight to God' or whatever. But for us, enlightened people, we know that it's all bullshit, that they're full of fucking lies and shit. And that's why I'm there - to give a little punch and a kick in the ass to this little quack and people saying that they have direct contact with God and shit like that."

By the late 1980s, in what would come to define his later ministry, Larson was often heard performing exorcisms of callers on the air, including Glen Benton of the death metal band DEICIDE, who became a regular caller.

MAYHEM vocalist Per "Dead" Ohlin committed suicide in 1991, and guitarist Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth was murdered in 1993.

I'm sure he "preacher" has his "what to say when it doesn't work" speech down solid.

No shit, right? :rolleyes:

Although... I think the maximum comic effect would be if Necrobutcher is actually exorcised, and becomes a crazy, hardcore, militant Christian. Heh.

As an aside, there's an awesome indy pro wrestler who goes by the name of Necro Butcher. He was in the fantastic Mickey Rourke movie 'The Wrestler.'
