Stian Aarstad

Stian Aarstad

Real/full name:
Stian Aarstad
Place of origin:


Best known for his five-year (1992–97) stint with Dimmu Borgir during which he played keyboards. He engendered much criticism and controversy for appearing onstage and performing in a top hat and cape; wearing minimal corpsepaint and not moving or showing any emotion. Upon joining Dimmu Borgir, he didn't listen to metal music, preferring only to listen to classical.
