True Norwegian Black Metal on Dutch national radio


This is Martijn from the interview for the ZXZW exhibition. I’m mailing you because a review of True Norwegian Black Metal has appeared in De Volkskrant recently (I have no idea why so late), one of the major Dutch dailies (like The NY Times or The Guardian.) Some radio people read the review, thought it would be interesting for their programme, googled for more info and found me. Now I have to give a talk on national radio on the book and Norwegian black metal on Radio 1, the national public news station on Monday evening between 8 and 10 (unless they cancel at the last moment.) I’ll already do my best to keep the sensationalism down and the content up.

Successful kick off ZXZW

ZXZW started off with the grand opening of Peter Beste´s exposition “True Norwegian Black Metal” at Kunstpodium T. A nice crowd showed up consisting of metal heads, local politicians and artists. Beste, who flew over from New York, sold out his book in a couple of hours, which proves his work was truly appreciated by the visitors.
