Original Letters from MAYHEM's Euronymous Are On Sale

Euronymous' legend has grown larger and larger in the 25+ years since his death, to the point that some of his possessions are now worth a good chunk of money.

MetalSucks reports that some original writings of his are up for a pretty steep price:

Serialkillersink.net, “a website dedicated to selling original items from infamous criminals, mass murderers and serial killers,” has come into possession of five letter and envelope sets written by one Øystein Aarseth himself in 1992. Written on a typewriter (the envelopes have Aarseth’s actual handwriting on them), these one-of-a-kind pieces of black metal history include all sorts of fascinating  revelations, such as Euronymous’ willingness to respect the tastes of Madonna fans, his talent for insult comedy “…most of these bands aren’t DEATH metal at all, they’re life metal”), and the fact that he thought Necrobutcher was a “wimp.” There’s also one which begins “Dark shall the kingdom be”  and is signed “War and sodomy,” which is how I plan to start and conclude every correspondence for the rest of my life, or at least the rest of the day.

As of this writing, all but one of these letters have been sold, with the final letter going for $300, so act fast.
