Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth) Thought Bård “Faust” Eithun (Ex-Emperor) Was Joking When He Confessed To Murder During A Party In 1993

Back in 1994, ex-Emperor drummer Bård “Faust” Eithun was convicted of murder after stabbing a gay man, named Magne Andreassen, to death in 1992. He only served nine years for his crime and was released in 2003. Now, during an interview with Metal Hammer, Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth revealed that Eithun actually confessed to the murder during a party in 1993. The frontman said the following:

“We played at the Royal Court in Liverpool, then had a massive party. Faust came up to me pissed out his head and told me about murdering a gay guy. I dismissed it as a load of crap but when it all came out I felt like an accessory to murder after the fact. But if anyone had seen Emperor at that time, they’d never have taken them seriously. There’s, like, Samoth, Lord of Silence, but he wasn’t Lord of Silence that night – he was Lord of Giggles and Laughter… Everybody was either high or taking Es, drinking – all fucked.”
