"Black Metal justifies all my actions, and I owe it all to the art of Black Metal..." This is an article that was released shortly after the death of Euronymous, promoting "King Bård Faust" as the new Leader of Black Metal. Please note, the following aren't quotes from Faust, but quoted directly from the article ABOUT Bård Faust.
"In this time, the black metal scene has been reduced to childish activities having to reassure others that they are 'true' and all others are 'fake'. The quality control aspect has gone. When once bands submitted materiel to King Euronymous now play poor Black Metal in an attempt to ruin what was once such a majestic scene.
Now we shall take back what is rightfully ours. I felt as an individual, we should have a competent leader. A leader who always believed in a true ideology... and never felt the need to change his views every few weeks like many others did. This leader who shall forever be is the warrior Bard FAUST. Bard is the only elite war brother who has never contradicted himself in any way. His thoughts and ideals stand for pure hate for all that is 'good' in the world and his dedication to it is unmatched by any other.
His relationship with our former King Euronymous is one that grew strongly and I feel that in some way Euronymous is living through Bard...
Bard Faust will continue as he has to serve our cause in jail. For this reason we much HAIL the new KING. Let him forever guide us and let us do things for HIM. He has proven to all of us that is takes more than 'talk' and 'words', it takes ACTION. Action is something Bard is all too familiar with. You can support the new King by by either writing to him and sending your letters of support, or buying an official "In support of FAUST" t shirt..."
