"Presenting This Summer’s Viking Black Metal Fashion Lineup!"

Prologue : Well, a new month is upon us, and with it comes a whole new helping of  irreverent silliness. Welcome back, kiddies. You have once more arrived in that magical land. A special place, where anything is rarely sacred--- well, apart from the time honored tradition of being able to point out the humor that lies in everything around us, whether some find it offensive or not. This is the June installment of the DeadShow, titled “Presenting This Summer’s Viking Black Metal Fashion Lineup!”. 

A few weeks back, someone brought something up which triggered the bit of silliness you’re about to read. The bulk of this person’s point suggested that, though I have a knack for poking fun at things which irritate me, I might not be so good at poking fun of something that I like--- something like Black Metal, for example. 

Not true--- and so, in the spirit of taking up that indirect challenge, I present you, O lovers of sarcasm and insolence, with this summer’s Viking Black Metal fashion show. This month, we will be joined by none other than the mighty--- nay, the legendary--- Green God of the Glade himself : Greenmuse. Let’s cue up the music, and get things underway!

( Hit stage lights, and cue Darkthrone’s “In the Shadow of the Horns” ) 

DS : “Hi there, ladies and gents. Glad to have you with us, and as you can see, there’s been a significant and Unholy turnout for this summer’s fashion expo. I’m your humble commentator DS, and with me today is Greenmuse.”

Greenmuse : “Ahoy, droogies. Boy DS, it really looks like the forces of Evil are gearing up for some blasphemous fashion statements this summer. I have high hopes for what today’s prevailing styles will have on this summer’s highly anticipated graveyard desecrations.”

DS : “Let’s see if we can get a pre-show comment from one of the runway Vikings… ( approaches Viking ) Excuse me, sir? What is your name?”

Halfdan the Grim : ( scowling ) “I be Halfdan the Grim, son of Martin the Bank Teller, brother of Steven the Paperboy. State your business with haste, vile heathen, lest I fell you with my great beard axe!”

DS : “Do you listen to Black Metal?”

Halfdan the Grim : ( bellowing ) “Only the tr00est Black Metal, spawned forth from the Great Northern Darkness, which chills my blood, and causes my astral body to wax icy.”

Greenmuse : ( raises his fist to the sky ) “Hail, valiant Halfdan! I listeneth to the tr00est Polka, spawned forth from the mighty Bratwurst, which makes my moustache thick, and my lederhosen dance!” ( pulls out an accordion ) 

*oom-pa-pa oom-pa-pa oom-pa-pa*

DS : “Not now, Greenmuse.”

Greenmuse : “Sorry. You know how I get…”

Halfdan the Grim : ( raising beard axe ) “Die, you bleating sheep!”

DS : “Actually, we wanted to get your thoughts on this summer’s Black Metal fashion lineup…”

Halfdan the Grim : ( turning suddenly perky and talkative ) “Well we’re really expecting to see some new direction in pants--- maggots are all the rage.”

DS : “They ARE?”

Halfdan the Grim : “Oh yes. Merely burying the pants in unhallowed ground to induce decay is old hat, and so now a lot of the top designers are sprinkling them with maggots. It really gives them that sequin-esque allure, and so far made a real splash at cannibalistic ceremonies.”

Greenmuse : “I’ve noticed your beard axe. Could this be taken as an indication that there might be a radical shift away from 8th century Viking raider swords?”

Halfdan the Grim : “Beard axes are really blossoming. They look great if matched up with a flashy pair of demonic, spiked gauntlets. Also, because they’re not too bulky, they truly help make the toil of spreading Eternal Evil and perverting people’s souls much easier.”

DS : “Ooh, that sounds marvelous.”

Halfdan the Grim : “Yes, it really is--- ( pauses ) well, in the bleak, godless sense of the term ‘marvelous’, I suppose it is. Anyway, it looks like the runway show is about to begin, so I’ve got to run. ALL HAIL!”

( The music lowers, and the lights slowly dim. A thick, low lying  fog begins to crawl along the runway platform. Then--- ever so eerily--- the sounds of a Viking war drum begin to steadily throb though the air. The corpse painted crowd stirs with sacrilegious anticipation. Suddenly,  as if on the threshold of an epic, bloody battle, a war chant swells above the drumming. In a single moment of the most unholy terror humanly imaginable, a voice like a bloodthirsty beast roars forth from the PA system… )

DS : “GOOD AFTERNOON RAPERS, LOOTERS, AND PILLAGERS! Welcome to the annual summer black metal fashion expo! Let the show BEGIN!”

( Cue Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy”. Out struts the first Unholy Viking model. )

DS : “Ofeig the Slightly Putrescent is wearing a stunning Cloak of Abomination, patterned with Inverted Crosses, and hand sewn with bits of  Satanically blessed goat intestines.”

( Ofeig twirls around, making snarling faces ) 

Greenmuse : “Judging by the flying sheep’s heads from the crowd, I’d say they’re really taken by what they see, DS. This is the kind of cloak which will really help to disperse those baneful clouds of Christian oppression when the wearer is out on the town.”

DS : “Absolutely. Oh wait… here comes the next model… Hrafn the Peevish is clearly mixing style with attitude, here. He wields a bloody halberd that contrasts magnificently against his all black, bile splattered clothing. This piece of weaponry has really come into its own over the past few seasons, Greenmuse--- perfect for swearing blood revenge in the name of Odin, or even braving the mighty frost tempests of Blashyrkh.”

Greenmuse : “One can’t help but notice the fantastic job that Hrafn has done with his corpse paint and green fangs---  and I like the prosthetic troll nose particularly. I’ll tell you DS, this sassy, fashion-forward look is definitely going to be a common sight at all of this summer’s upcoming church burnings.”

( Hrafn spins around and walks back up the runway )

DS : “Okay… up next is a newcomer… Ingjaldr the Desecrator.”

Greenmuse : “Ingjaldr is looking savagely grotesque in his ancient Viking war paint, likely seared onto his face by the all-powerful finger of Lucifer himself. He accessorizes this smartly with a bullet belt and a barbaric looking war club--- really the perfect outfit for a Friday night sacrificial get-together, a band mate homicidal act, or even a Christian blood drinking Rite, if you’re in a pinch.”

DS : “One truly unique novelty here is the way in which Ingjaldr is evilly wearing a dead bird around his neck, and also the manner in which he has driven nails through the bird’s lifeless body. Very grim. This must be a terrific conversation piece at crucifix vandalizations, and also at the family breakfast table.”

( Ingjaldr sashays in a circle and saunters back down the runway )

DS : “Take a look at this next one. Now this is really something. On his head, Skeggi the Terrible is wearing a ghastly helm adorned with authentic human livers. He captures a fashion-with-flair approach to religious genocide in a custom armor plate, which features grisly reindeer skin fringe, and a dreadful inlaid pentagram made from the bloody skull fragments of a former next door neighbor. If this grim number doesn’t say ‘the children of Thor will sodomize the angels of Light’, then I don’t know what does. DID YOU SEE THAT? Skeggi the Terrible has JUST decapitated a member of the audience! I’ll tell you something Greenmuse--- it doesn’t get much tr00er than this.”

Greenmuse : “Boy DS, I’m really impressed with the way Skeggi the Terrible has taken a perennial favorite and jazzed it up with human entrails and a nice 34 ½” Godfred sword. Pay attention, Unholy Warriors. If you bloodthirsty rascals want to be the life of the plundering crew, this is the look for you.”

DS : “--- and did you notice how favorable this outfit’s reception is among the women present?”

Greenmuse : “I haven’t seen women swoon this much since Finnr the Atrocious disemboweled that ram last year and made small end tables out of it’s carcass.”

DS : “That was indeed one of the tr00est Viking Black Metal moments I’ve witnessed since I started covering this fashion expo, Greenmuse. I remember that the women went SO wild, they sailed off to England, whereupon they massacred, looted and incinerated an entire Lutheran congregation--- all in the name of Eternal War and Everlasting Darkness.”   

Greenmuse : “Well Skeggi is really giving Finnr a run for his money this year, DS. The sheer level of tr00ness we’re witnessing today might very well summon the Midgard Serpent, ushering in a new Age of Ragnarok, which would be a huge disappointment for avid beach goers on a global scale.”

DS : “ Well with that having been said, we’ve just about come to a close here at the DeadShow’s coverage of the Summer Viking Black Metal fashion lineup. It’s been great having Greenmuse here with us, and we hope that you’ve really taken in the endless possibilities of what this summer’s Unholy couture will do for all of us. I’m going to close out the show with a fantastic piece of music by a now-defunct band called Immortal. The song is titled “Antarctica”, and it’s one of my personal favorites. In the meantime, I’ll remind you to avoid those beaches, flock to the graveyards, and not be the last heathen in your neighborhood to murder someone with a flying sheep’s head.”

This is the DeadSun, signing off.

( Roll credits, and cue Immortal’s “Antarctica”  )
