In the last edition of Metal Kino, I’ve gone to great lenghts to explain my “morbid” interest in the Black Metal genre and the happenings around this scene. So there is no need to explain it again for this edition. If you really are interested, click the link above to read my intro to the last edition. Also, I would like to point out that I’ve made a mistake last time. The first video I’ve posted actually wasn’t taken from the documentary that I wrote about but from Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. Shit happens. Now you know.
But anyhow, this edition, again, is all about Black Metal. Black Metal – A Documentary features interviews with members of Venom, Gorgoroth, Mortiis, Dark Funeral, Enslaved and more. For a full list, check out the tags.
Now make the jump to watch the 13-part documentary Black Metal – A Documentary.
King Diamond is awesome. His style of singing, his lyrical content of horror stories, and constantly making amazing albums is what makes him awesome. What isn’t awesome is what he has gone through as of late. In case you’re unaware, King Diamond was taken to hospital this past November. He had several blockages in his arteries and apparently had quite a bit of heart attacks and needed a triple-bypass surgery.
Less than a week ago, Livia (who happens to be the wife of King Diamond), posted an update for fans curious of his health.
Some of you have been asking for an update on King‘s health, so I thought I’ll write what’s been going on.
King has just finished his Cardiac Rehabilitation program this past Friday, and graduated with flying colors. Thanks to the wonderful people at the rehab center, his exercise regimen helpe him gain a lot of muscle, and start on the road of building up good endurance.
We will start regular exercises now to get the endurance up to nice levels.
The examinations by his heart surgeon and cardiologist revealed that his health is steadily improving, and they all expect him to feel better than ever, 15 years younger than he really is.
I am immensely proud of what he has achieved in these short 3 months, stopped smoking entirely, changed diet and doing regular exercise among other things.
I cannot say anything certain about when he will be back working on King Diamond related things, but he is looking forward to finishing the DVDs eventually, and he is most certainly not stopping music.
I hope this information was helpful, I can honestly say that his progress has been nothing short of amazing. He is the strongest person I know.
He would also like to extend his huge gratitude to all of you, for your absolutely amazing support. It has really meant a lot to him.
Enjoy his Cardiac Rehabilitation “graduation” picture below.
Cheers and Stay Heavy,
The guy is warrior. It’s great to hear he is slowly coming around. We at Dose of Metal are wishing him a full recovery!
…and decided that if we can’t beat them, we should join them. Christmas can be metal. Make the jump and find out why.
