Varg Vikernes (born 11 February 1973) is the former bassist of the Black Metal band Mayhem. He was arrested in 1994, charged with the murder of Øystein 'Euronymous' Aarseth and the arson of several churches. He maintains that he killed Euronymous in self-defence and denies responsibility though he fully supported them.
Vikernes was released in 2009 after being denied parole. However, he found himself arrested again for inciting racial hatred. He was also arrested for encouraging war crimes. He is currently on trial.
Mayhem was responsible for Freezing Moon, in my opinion one of the worst songs of all time.
