Sheep's head injures rock fan

METAL BAND MAYHEM lived up to its name after a fan at one of its concerts had his skull fractured by a flying sheep's head.

The band, part of the country's death metal music scene, was carving up a dead sheep as part of its stage act when the animal's head flew off lead singer Maniac's knife and struck Per Kristian Hagen, 25. The show was Thursday in Bergen, 487 kilometers (302 miles) west of the capital, Oslo.

'My relationship to sheep is a bit ambivalent now. I like them, but not when they come flying through the air,' Hagen said in hospital.

'I have a headache now.'

He was hospitalised Friday for a skull fracture, but is expected to recover.

Hagen, a Mayhem fan, filed involuntary assault and battery charges against the band.

Mayhem member Rune Eriksen, whose stage name is Blasphemer, said the incident was unfortunate.

'The whole thing was an accident, but maybe it would be an idea for another show,' he said.

Eriksen promised Hagen a free ticket to the group's next performance.

Police detective Carl-Petter told the AP an investigation has started, but 'nothing suggests this was a conscious act.'

The charges carry a maximum sentence of six months in prison.


'My relationship to sheep is a bit ambivalent now.'

Who killed the sheep? Won't there also be animal cruelty charges?

they're about the only band I know that actually worship Satan on stage

they've got a pretty twisted history

church burning and stuff

and the lead singer killed the bassist and ate him or something

or something.

Because I know you were all SO curious about their history. Their website isn't as funny as it could be. I don't recommend it. I was very disappointed. Their names are funny, though.

They've been around that long? I have never heard of them. They sound fucked up.

I think they're Norweigan. For some reason, Scandanavians seem to be big on black/death metal. Maybe it's the high suicide rates....?
