Notes & Trivia

Excerpt taken from Synnin Viemää:

"1997, when the burning of churches in Norway escalated, we played at the Provinssirock festival for the first time on an island stage. Dimmu Borgir and Black Sabbath performed at the same festival. The media made a huge fuss and claimed that churches were burning and Satanists were running wild. Some guy even threatened that a nearby wooden church would burn. So at the festival there were many Jehovah’s Witnesses who blessed our stage with holy water before we performed. At the time the police and TV interviewed me about the whole thing. But there were no real problems; it was just one big laugh."

Note about this excerpt, Ville says it was 1997 but Black Sabbath didn't perform at the festival that year.
