Euronymous - Might Be Honored By Norwegian Airline


According to The Guardian, a Norwegian airline is extremely close to using legendary black metal musician Euronymous (Øystein Aarseth) on the tail fins of one of their jumbo jet planes.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the carrier is asking passengers to vote on a new set of heroes for their aircraft's tailfins. Voters can take part by voting for which ever notable Norwegian figure they like - as long as they are dead - and the one with biggest boost will get to adorn the extremities of an aircraft in the fleet of Norwegian Airlines. You can place your votes here. Euronymous was killed by his bandmate Varg Vikernes in August 1993.

After being put forward by a local nominating committee, the Mayhem co-founder has collected the highest share of votes, leading over Trond André Bolle, a soldier who died in 2010, and the Lutheran reformist Hans Nielsen Hauge. The contest closes today, March 28th.

Not to mention that the pilot will point out how certain airlines are superior to others.

And denouncing the airplane as the mode of transport of the black man, forsaking it, declaring that the pilot of the Air Euronymous was a gay communist....

Then after a 16 year period of absence, Burzum airways will return, only the customer service will be complete shit compared to its earlier incarnations which was just decent.

But he'd have to crash into the other plane 23 times, not just once.


Brilliant.

I remember sometime ago there was also a similar vote about picking the most iconic figure of Suffolk. And Dani Filth was an option. Obviously everyone voted for him for the lulz but the organizers cancelled the votes.


I remember that and have same thought's about this. I think it was forceingly later chosen to the awesome Sutton Hoo treasure that's as just as cool in my world.

Kinda sad that the best hero Norway has is a black metal musician. This is awesome though!

If I remember correctly Norway's biggest export is black metal CDs. So it's only fitting that a Norwegian "hero" would be a black metal musician.

Hopefully they don't use the picture from the back of De Mysteiis Dom Sathanas. He lookes like a drag queen who lost his wig.

Euro ain't gonna be on it, his family wouldn't let them, so they say. It's just as likely that the airline company made that story up in order to avoid having to put Euro's face on it. Regardless, it is now my mission in life to buy an airplane and paint Euronymous on it.

Crap. It's like Dani Filth and Suffolk all over again.

That and the fact that it's not in the European Union.
But honestly, there are pictures of at least 40 other people featured on Norwegian's aircrafts... and Euronymous is not one of them).
