Dear fellow “Pagans”.
For those who follow The Abyss of Darkness for some time now, know that once I liked True Norwegian Black Metal… I made artwork for it…. The flock loved it. But I slowly lost my interest for it. But why? Well that question is not hard to answer… It’s because Metalheads often seem more smart, more intelligent than others. (at least I thought so). But they are not. In fact they do the contrary of what they say they do and who they are. And almost non of them is bloody aware of it. They say they are anti-christian, meanwhile they use symbols which were made by christians. They wear shirts of their favorite bands who use anti christian imagery, but all they are actually doing is spreading christianity. Promoting it. By putting a lot of attention on it. This was to me “fake-rebellion”. And this goes too for the big band names out there who are even worse in doing this. So I left that scene behind me because of the idiots claiming to be True Norwegian Metalheads, pure anti-christian, satanic bastards…. Meanwhile each one of them was just a lame mortal doing the contrary of what that person said he did. I grew just very tired of it and left.
So I turned to a different path… A path of Germanic cultures… European Ancestry. A pre-christian Europe. I read books about european cultures… I looked up history from different perspectives… I learned a lot by doing so…. One thing it taught me in particular. Which is…. The amount of…… Numbnuts out here…. Who all LOVE paganism, European cultures…. The numbnuts who claim to be viking! Who did DNA tests and other ridiculous things to prove that they are “TRUE VIKINGS”!!!
All well and jolly for you, but let me spoil the fun for you here. The term Viking is a commercial term. A term to describe a certain type of warriors from the past. A term for people who lack the information about Germanic cultures, tribes and so forth. I can’t stand when people say they are viking. Because already by saying you’re a “viking” you are clearly not a “viking”. A viking is someone who was born in the area called: Víkin. And thus was called a Viking because of where he originated from. Which had nothing to do with the fearsome warriors most people link to the term vikings…
Also to become a “viking” one must plant a tree and grow it old. So old until one can build a house from that very tree. If one succeeded doing this, one was called a “viking”. Other than that you were just a Norseman in this case. (Whilst living in scandinavia). Or a Germanic pagan/heathen living elsewhere in Germanic Europe. Also not to forget about the slavic parts of Europe.
Whilst baring this in mind…. One might understand by reading this far, where my disappointment in my fellow “pagans” grows from… Because most of them are just a bunch of lame ignorant souls… Just like in the Black Metal scenes…. In both cases I thought wrong…. I thought I would find rather smart people…. But the smart ones are rare and few. Also pretty much on the background, probably shaking their heads watching you….
Besides of that all, I’d like to say how tired I grow from everyone who is only focused on bloody scandinavia! In central, western and eastern Europe the same religion was practiced! Called Paganism! And Paganism is very broad. Meanwhile it was all the same! It variated in names and portrays but it’s very core was the same! Somehow everybody only looks at scandinavia but why? Because this bloody television show called “Vikings”? Because you were taught in school Vikings came from scandinavia??? Bugger off! Know the bloody history of Europe you slothful idiot!
Scandinavians are a bunch of twats who claim it all for themselves! But whole central, western and eastern Europe followed the same religion just as the “cool” and “heroic” norsemen from scandinavia!
I’d like to end this message by saying: Stop…. Stop acting. But be. And know your forsaken roots! Stop pretending something which you are not. You’re not a viking… Your are a mortal, soon to die. Not going to Valhalla. Because in Valhalla pretending warriors do not exist.
