Gorgoroth's singer Gaahl admitted in an interview that he is gay. Here is the story.

Pretty surprising to me. You?

Eh, well I recall some rumour where he said he had never had sexual relations with a woman, so not really.

I guess you haven't read a lot of the gossip here. We've all suspected for a long time.

Hmm, I actually have a bit more respect for the guy now. It takes guts to publicly declare that you are gay and a virgin, at 33 years old. Especially in the black metal scene.

A moment of silence for the shattered dreams and perpetual confusion raging in the minds of all those kvlt-kiddy Gorgoroth fanboys.

Hahahaha, exactly what I was thinking.

edit: I don't care he's homosexual, though I do think it's ironic considering his extremist right-wing past.

The questions by the interviewer are so juvenile, "so like....... you're gay dude?"

Now to be renamed "Unchain My Cock" and "When Love Rages Wild In My Ass"? :lol:

On a serious note, though, I too was wondering if this is a publicity stunt. I don't know a great deal about Gaahl, so I don't know if he's the kind of person who likes to fuck around with the heads of the masses. However, considering the particularly evil and intense image he has constructed for himself over the years, one is led to wonder if he wants to bring it down for kicks. Like how kids build skyscrapers out of toy blocks, and then bring them crashing down for the fuck of it. :scratch: One can only wonder.

Well if anybody hasn't heard, Gaahl and his "close male assistant" has started a business designing clothes. He admits that he was having "heavy feelings" for this guy, and openly admits he's gay.


*sigh* As much as I could care less about most Gorgoroth, this is somewhat of a let down.

It's hardly surprising, given the rumours that have been circulating for the past few months, but good for him - no-one should have to repress or relinquish their personal happiness because of the potential grumbling of the 'hordes'.

Strange reading that interview, it's totally unlike any other interview I've seen/ read about Gaahl, so laid back and nothing about "........satan....". I guess it's not much of a surprise that he's gay really, I mean never having had a relationship with a woman etc.

Why not? What if he's a Kanwulf of Norwegian black metal scene? :lol:

Kanwulf didn't do it on purpose - he's genuinely that thick.

Yeah, I'm not surprised at all. I've heard these rumors for a while.

There still is a chance it's a publicity stunt, though. It's really tough to believe that he's a 33-year old virgin.

You have to wonder just what kind of "torture" he did to that guy back then.

Thank you. Anyone who can serarate their personal and professional lives is awesome in my book. But I have to admit, my first thought was a scene from Brain Candy when the front man for the psuedo-industrial group finally takes Gleemonex. Great stuff!

I don't think the homosexual tendencies are a big shock to anyone. What an awkward interview though, wow. The questions seemed to be formed on the spot, and Gaahl's answers were damn near...bubbly? I was far more surprised to read that he was heavily involved in gang violence in his adolescence.

Quote:
Rock Hard: Then what do you paint? Rob Halford in various motorcycle poses?

Gaahl: "Exactly." (laughs)


OK, to me, that is definitely not the same Gaahl that stared coldly at the Headbanger's Ball interviewer and said '...Satan.'

But maybe he feels a lot happier and more free now he's outed himself.

That's because losing virginity has a magical effect on the majority of "misanthropes". :lol:

I do believe we had said on many occasions not to even make this an issue.
