A Taste of What’s to Come

More or less!

Normally I would shy away from posting material that I’ve done for other people to Me(n)tal-Meltdown. However, this seemed as good a time as ever to give a taste of what’s to come next week.


I mentioned being in Oslo for four weeks between January and February; part of the task at hand was to gather up material for an individual, five minute radio piece about the topic of our choice. Since it was Oslo and it’s clear to everyone reading this bog where some of my main interests lie, I pocked an issue which had been on my mind for a while – why metal music seems to have more acceptance by the mainstream in Norway, than in the UK where it was born.


The feature owes part of its success to chance – before I went to the Inferno kick off party, I met with Lazare’s (Borknagar, Solefald) brother Sindre, who was kind enough to let me record him when our conversation turned to the local scene. He comes as the second voice in the interviews after Lazare, and also brought up an interesting issue that – despite not making the final cut for this piece – I intend to bring up again in future. It was pretty funny to hear!
