April is supposed to be the gateway to rejuvenation; spring is around the corner and warm sun awaits. Yet Thursday, April 29th is a dark day in NYC despite upward swinging forecasts, as the city will host a pair of black metal events.

First up, is the seminar 'A Blaze In The Northern Sky - Norwegian Metal and The Culture That Spawned It", a discussion featuring Nocturno Culto (Darkthrone), Gaahl (ex-Gorgoroth, Wardruna), and Harold Fossberg (Turbonegro) at Scandinavia House (58 Park Avenue):

In the last two decades, a bizarre, intense, and violent musical subculture called Black Metal has emerged in Norway, and has subsequently become a worldwide phenomenon. In a unique seminar-meets-radio show format moderated by Patrizia Mazzuoccolo (also known as Miss Pee), the lecture will explore and promote the genre and its country through audio clips of bands, interviews with musicians and special guests (see below for details), and an audience Q & A session.
Secondly and as previously discussed, Alcest will play NYC along with blackened blasters (and recent Candlelight signees) Woe and Have a Nice Life Tickets are still available for their show at The Studio @ Webster Hall, and I have a pair available for giveaway!

Nocturno Culto recently played Roadburn 2010 as part of Sarke, part II of Kim Kelly's review is on the way.

Wardruna, Gaahl included, recently played Folketeateret at the by:Larm Music Festival in snowy Norway (on Saturday, Feb. 20th) . An unposted set of pictures from that show, which was one of the major highlights of the long weekend, is continued below.

Details on how to win those Alcest tickets, some videos, and flyers for both events are below too...

seriously, how many fucking seminars have there been about this bullshit.

yeah this is really 15 years late and totally irrelevant.

let music be what it is, enough with all these 'black metal specialists', people who are so ready and willing to explain everything to us...we already fucking know.

do something productive instead, set up a show, bring some good bands here in the states, not fucking seminars...boo

LOL @ 1:33! that was a good one! for real. no but yeah it would be cool to chat with nocturno culto but gaahl or whatever seems like a tool. i dunno, seminars always sound like they suck and are boring.

Maybe in 1992, but it's 2010. Grownups in corpse paint make about as much sense as kids wearing punk rock costumes like is 1975.

See "Black Metal Transvestite" by Agoraphobic Nosebleed for more information on this subject.

How many of the above bands currently corpse paint?

None
