Go Buy This: Kirkebrann Stave Church-Shaped Candle

The Christmas season is in full swing right now and with it many folks are busy picking up gifts for friends and family but what if you don’t celebrate the birth of Jesus, what happens if you actually despise it? Well fear not because you can now make your black metal fantasies come true and burn a stave church in the comfort of your own home! Made famous in the early 90’s when Varg Vikernes (a.k.a. Count Grishnack) of the one-man band BURZUM burned Fantoft church to the ground, Kirkebrann is a stave church–shaped candle in the same likeness, handmade in the city of Bergen with an edition of 666. Varg Vikernes is serving a sentence for murder and the church burnings but you don’t have to! Act now as this is the second edition of the candle, the first was limited to 100 pieces and sold out immediately, and while you are at it pick up this book if you want to know more about the craziness that was going down in Norway's black metal scene at the time.

Thanks to my buddy Simon Tagestam for the tip.
