True Norwegian Black Metal (Varg Vikernes and Gaahl)

This is an Information Graphic Illustration, depicting the map of Norway as a gloomy horrific landscape, mapping of murders, church arson, and even the birth places of the leading figures of Black Metal within Norway, Varg Vikernes and Gaahl the former vocalist of the band Gorgoroth. Norway began the Black metal scene, which incorporates symbols and beliefs based off of paganism, satanism, Neo-Nazism, and anarchy of all kinds. At the bottom of this info-graph, I have developed a typographic time line of these two Metal-head's names. For more information about Gaahl, and Black Metal in Norway, take a look at the VBS.tv website.
