Every single Wednesday without fail, your hosts post a suitably stale video clip that we think needs to be revisited. Click here for more Crusty Clips. Got a clip you think we should post? Send it to crustcake@gmail.com.

What's this? Fenriz, Mr. "Not playing live is my religion" playing live? On television? With four members? Truth is stranger than fiction after all.

Darkthrone, mainly known for their black metal classics, radical shift towards dirty metal-punk and Fenriz's enlightening interviews, started off as a death metal band. For a band that would later come to shun the genre, they recorded a pretty damn good death metal album, Soulside Journey. Nocturno Culto went by his real name - Ted Skjellum - and Fenriz was known as "Hank Amarillo." Was Fenriz on such a Necrovore bender that he felt the need to have a Texan name? Who knows. Below is a performance of "Iconclasm Sweeps Cappadocia" on Norwegian TV in 1990.
