Norwegian Foreign Ministry Training Diplomats In True Norwegian Black Metal NEWS

Well it's kinda cool to hear that Norway has accepted Black Metal as a part of their culture. Yes it is funny as well but seriously according to Kjersti Sommerset, the head of Norway’s foreign ministry’s centre of excellence, he told the Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv: “We now have 106 foreign service missions and they get many enquiries from people who want information about Norwegian black metal as a phenomenon. In the training program, we have a large cultural program in order to give the trainees a good understanding of Norwegian culture and the cultural industry. Black metal is clearly a part of this ‘global awakening.’

I would love to be in on one of those training sessions on True Norwegian Black Metal. Sample Question to one of their instructors: "Excuse me but what is more True, MAYHEM with Dead on vocals or Attila? Secondly since both of those individuals are not Norwegian then how can MAYHEM be True Norwegian Black Metal?"

While you are pondering your own screw with their heads questions here's a photo documentary by Peter Beste.
