Varg Vikernes set free

Burzum Varg Vikernes, the BURZUM and Mayhem frontman who was convicted of murdering MAYHEM guitarist Oystein Aarseth (a.k.a. Euronymous) in August 1993 and setting fire to three churches, is a free man.

"I can confirm that I have been released from prison," Vikernes told Norway's Dagbladet. "I will have to report for one year initially every two weeks [to a parole officer], and then once a month," Vikernes said.
