Darkthrone's Fenriz 'Involuntarily' Elected To City Council


(Metal Hammer) Darkthrone's Fenriz has been 'involuntarily' been elected into his town council in Kolbotn, Norway. The black metal mastermind was asked to be on a list of backup representatives for the country's Liberal party.

When he was chosen to run, he put up posters featuring photographs of him holding his cat, along with the caption 'Please Don't Vote For Me' - but his campaign backfired.

He tells Clryvnt: "I'm in the local papers because I got voted in as a politician - involuntarily, I might add. So, I've got some support, I guess. But Kolbotn is a tiny place, maybe 9,000 people.

"Norway is very small, so when you're a local politician, you're local, man. I'm a pillar of my community!" When asked whether he could decline the role, he replies: "No, if you get voted in, you have to stay in that position for four years. And then you can pull out. But I'm used to these sort of long-term commitments." here.
