The Infamous #ChainMail! 🔥🇳🇴 #Sverd made four chain mails in the early`90s, and #MariusVold made two. The first one was made for Varg Vikernes by Sverd and Marius, and was made using 120 rings in diameter, in total 12.000 rings.
Sverd then made two chain mails for two guys who wanted them for role play in Oslo. These had 140 rings in diameter, in total 15.000 rings. Sverd used the money for the sale of these two to buy his legendary Ensoniq SD1, from the famous Norwegian Pop band “Drama”. This is what made the signature sound you all know in Arcturus 🌟
Marius made one chain mail that was sold to a role play guy, plus one for one of the Mysticum guys.
Sverd finally made a very special chain mail for himself, using 6 mm rings instead of the more normal 8mm size at most of the chain mail. The lower part was made using 8mm rings in a 6 in 1 pattern. This edition consists of 23.000 rings in total, not less than 600 meters of rings, weighing about 7,5kg. This chain mail has been used by Shagrath in several photo shoots for “Death Cult Armageddon”. So to conclude, a total six chain mails were made, three ended up in the role play environment, and three for Black Metal folks. I guess Varg's chain Mail was confiscated, and still is at storage at the police, or has been discarded by them. So really there are only two Black Metal chain mails left; Sverd's personal one (this; part of TTMC) and the one for Mysticum.
