I can't remember their name but use the following:

They were a metal band from Scandinavia, probably Death (see below) but I'm not sure.

Anyway, the cover to one of their albums had their lead singer (I think), or rather what was left of him after he blew his head off with a gun, on it. Any ideas?

Dawn of the Black Hearts is a bootleg album by Norwegian black metal band Mayhem. It is infamous for bearing a real photo of late singer Dead's corpse after his suicide with a shotgun and a knife.


"...and a knife" <- wtf?

Not only did he blow his head off but one of the other band members made a necklace out of his teeth iirc.

There were a lot of rumors really, the one I heard was that the band member who found him didn't think it looked cool enough and took a spoon and pulled out some brain to make it better, another one is that he ate part of the brain, another that they made a necklace of the skull fragments and so on.

The whole thing is sick, I like black metal but that band just went too far, even if I think most, if not all, of the rumors were made up for publicity.

And who says metal bands aren't progressive? When is the rest of the band due?

That largely depends on the situation and circumstances people are in. It won't fix anything, but it can be a way out.

Who says that someone has to live, if someone doesn't want to live what else are you left with besides suicide.

Two years after the singer killed himself, the bassist killed the guitarist, by stabbing him 23 times. He claimed it was in self defense. Of the band's classic lineup, only the drummer is not dead or in prison - He also seems to be the only one even remotely sane.

The band were also one of the leaders of the now famous church burnings in the early 90s in Norway.

A shotgun isn't effort. Now what Elliot Smith did, that's effort!

Ahahahahaahah... Those guys are hillarious.

They claim to sing in "Ancient nordic", but what they really sing in is grammatically incorrect Icelandic with a horrible accent.

EDIT; They also win for having Darth Vader on they're album cover.

Death, the vocalist died from a tumor. That was like 3 or so years ago I think.
