I am a sucker for black metal trivia, so let's have a thread dedicated to it.

Let me start with a few obvious examples:

- The vocals on Aghast's Hexerei Im Zwielicht Der Finsternis were recorded with Dead's personal microphone.

- The cover art for Burzum's Det Som Engang Var, just like the one of Burzum, was inspired by the Dungeons and Dragons adventure module The Temple of Elemental Evil.

- Stuart Anstis recorded all guitars for V Empire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein. The name "Jared Demeter" was credited in the liner notes to make it seem like two guitarists played on the EP.

- The main riff of Marduk's Nightwing was lifted from the Subspecies OST.

- Varg Vikernes' bass tracks were never removed from Mayhem's De Mysteriis Dom. Sathanas.

during the infamous visit to Turkey by Mayhem in 1990 for the show in Izmir, Necrobutcher became quick fond of "Lokum", more colloqually known as "turkish delight"
upon returning home to Norway, he would spend weekends at farmer's markets as far away as Telemark in search of these delicious treats to satiate his ravenous sweet tooth

awesome thread idea. I could really learn a lot from it (stupid trivia, that is). But it seems that jokes, as funny as they are, will probably fill half of this thread, thus negating the thread's purpose.

Oh fuck Laughing I think you are thinking of Hamnasnas MCD which was never recorded.

Someone could recycle all the old Blasphemy rumours here as "facts & trivia".

- Not sure about this one, but the reissue of Storm of the Light's Bane on Black Horizon Music features altered artwork with Vlad's face (?) mixed with the Devil, perhaps indicating that he was the "fifth member" of Dissection?
