140. Metal Mayhem and Murder

Norway’s Black Metal music scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s brought together young men who, giving themselves nicknames like Necro Butcher and Hell Hammer, aimed to shock and act out more than make music, But the hijinks gave way to arson, suicide and murder, with the band Mayhem and its pschopathic leader Euronymous at the center of the storm. Rebecca tells the story.

Also, Maureen gives the NNW treatment to the 27-hour audio version of the book “Monster,” by Steve Jackson.
