The Meads of Asphodel

The Meads of Asphodel are hands-down the weirdest black metal band out there, shifting between polka, space-rock, punk, horns, and cryptic narration within their dense, pummeling psychosis. The band’s latest album, The Murder of Jesus Christ the Jew, despite some intentionally provocative song titles and themes, is actually an homage of sorts to the most famous hippie in history.

Also, they always wear armor that makes them look more like extras in Monty Python and the Holy Grail than evil warriors risen from the dead.
