Burzum - Varg Vikernes Arrested In France (Update)


UPDATE on 17.07.2013 [Thanks to Carl Berg]: According to Euronews, there doesn't seem to be much evidence suggesting that Varg Vikernes was planning any sort of terrorist action. It seems that the arrest was based on a "blog post" made by Vikernes after the fatal derailing of the Bretigny train last week which contained ant-semitic remarks. The new update also confirms that the police custody of Varg Vikernes and his French wife Marie Cachet arrested on Tuesday in southwestern France has been extended by 24 hours, judiciary sources told news agency AFP.

French news website Le Nouvel Obs reports that the Central Directorate of Interior Intelligence decided to act after a blog post Vikernes wrote on July 13th commenting on the Bretigny train crash, which had taken place south of Paris the day before.

In the blog post entitled "Heros", Vikernes attacks "The 'French' president, the (sic) Jew Mr. Hollande", the media and "criminal non-European scum" making up "the gang of 'youths' standing nearby ready to rob the passengers when [the train derailed]."

The French Interior Minister Manuel Valls admitted that there was for now "no target, no identified project" in the Vikernes affair, but he justified the arrests by the necessity, in terrorism investigation, "to act before and not after."

The Interior Ministry stated on Tuesday that Vikernes "with close tie to the neo-nazi movement" was considered "likely to carry a large-scale terror act" and thus "constituted a potential menace". To justify the arrest, they also mentioned "violent speech intercepted on the web."

An official at the prosecutor's office said that the investigation was also prompted by several suspicions that made the services fear he could possibly carry out a violent act after he reportedly received a copy of the manifesto of Anders Breivik.

Stay tuned for more updates.



Original news, published on 16.07.2013: Varg Vikernes is in the news yet again and not for good reasons. Several French sources and also Euronews are reporting that Burzum's mastermind Varg Vikernes has been reportedly arrested in France and taken to custody in the Corrèze region this Tuesday. The police suspect the Norwegian to be plotting a "massacre" and are currently searching his house for weapons and explosives. His French wife and a member of a shooting club has allegedly recently purchased legally four rifles. Varg is being described as a "neo-nazi" and "Anders Breivik sympathizer".

The anti-terrorist prosecutor has been put in charge of the investigation. He could be held in custody for the next 96 hours, as is allowed under anti-terror laws.

Of course we all remember that Vikernes was convicted to 21 years in prison - the maximum sentence in Norway - for the murder of Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth of black metallers Mayhem and for arson attacks on churches. He was freed in May 2009.

Vikernes is said to be one of the people to have received the manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, the far-right terrorist responsible for the July 2011 Oslo bombing and Utoeya Massacre which left 77 dead. Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in jail for terrorism on August 2012.

However, The Quietus refers a post called War in Europe: Part V from late 2012, where Vikernes criticized Breivik's actions: "To Breivik I can only say I hope you do kill yourself.... you have made a big mistake."

He also writes: "As long as there are true Europeans alive they will continue to fail, and our European blood makes sure that we can at any time revive the true European spirit and turn Europe into our Elysium again. Today we are on the offensive. For the first time in many decades. The final solution to this problem is not to kill anyone, but to raise our children with European ideals and values, and a European world view, and make sure that Christianity dies out when our coward parent generation dies out."

I don't get his way of thinking. If Christianity will die, there will be Islam in Europe. I don't think it's better...


A Muslim Europe, THAT I wanna see! I wonder what will happen to the Irish though...

The catholics will become the sheites and the prodastants will become the sunis (sorry about the spelling). So it will be business as usual.

Even the gypsies don't go to Corrèze.

Maybe 'cause Varg's there?

Pretty much sums up my opinion on this too.

What the fluck? I hate how the media turns this upside-down by focusing on the fact that he is a "black metal musician" - essentially that black metal music makes evil people.

Also, he is most certainly not an Anders Breivik sympathiser, he openly criticised his actions and even told him to kill himself.

Damn media, it can ruin the image of an entire genre of music.


That's the exact reason I insult him, and I say his skull is filled with shit ,he's ruining the whole scene, it will do no good to the music lovers,not at all,needless to say imagine how it will be reflected in media of countries with extreme ideologies,they already had trouble with metal, and imagine after this incident ,suspicious whatever they say, how they will display metal to society.I'm sad really for metal scene.

yeah it totally works like that. if you don't believe in the christian god, it's obligatory to choose another religion. so everyone will become muslim.

It's not exactly what I meant. I don't believe in any Gods, and I would like that Europe, when Christianity will die, will abandon all deities and become atheists and there will no longer be any religion. But, of course, it's impossible, this sick world needs religion to exist (but I wonder why), so people in Europe will be muslims (or any other religion, no big difference for me).

let's just hope that if the day comes when christianity disappears, the people that still need spirituality in their lives will choose a more friendly faith. like buddhism or something like that, instead of shitty islam or judaism
not like there is any chance that stupid people will abandon religion

Saw it in the newspapers today.
Looks like they kinda panicked for little and arrested him as some kind of 'precaution'. Though, I must say, with a crazy moron like him, you never know. Perhaps they were right to put him under arrest.

As a big Black Metal fan, that's precisely why I hate people like Varg Vikernes and Gaahl. It's this kind of fucking morons who give a bad reputation to the BM scene and fans.

a blog post started this. Makes you wonder how many more bloggers got arrested who might share the same sentiments as him. Not defending the man, but it seem that the French might have over reacted here.

Yep. His previous record is what prompted him being put under surveillance - since he moved in France it seems.
BTW, yes it's said he lives in France now.

Also, he's been freed.
