Into The Crypt of Retards
Here's more proof, as if it were needed, that Europe is indeed a strange, strange place and that Black Metal is not very evil. I don't know exactly what year this video is from, but I'm going to guess somewhere around 1985. It features Martin Eric Ain (surprisingly normal looking, except for the eye shadow and giant hoop earrings) and Tom G. Warrior (one of the ugliest people on earth with his stupid eye makeup, stringy hair, rocking a dirt stache--they have white trash in Switzerland?--leather and spikes) of the legendary Celtic Frost on what I'm guessing is some kind of Swiss Top of the Pops show.
The video begins with Martin and Tom being interviewed by a teenage girl in a over sized white blouse with an awful hair cut. I have no idea what they're talking about since I have no idea what language they're speaking (German, I think?), but I'm sure it's very evil and hilarious. There's even a crowd of children surrounding Martin and Tom while they're being interviewed. These children scream in anticipation when the female teen interviewer announces in her thick accent the song Celtic Frost is about to perform, "Into de Cryfft of Rays."
Can you imagine what it must have felt like to be alive in Switzerland in 1985 and to have stumbled upon Celtic Frost on Top of the Pops while channel surfing? I can't. Fucking surreal.
