Neseblod Records

The infamous Neseblod Records in Oslo, Norway. They have a ton of rare black metal memorabilia from the early days of the Norwegian scene at insane prices. Their new stuff doesn't come cheap either, and shipping is expensive. Paid almost 50% of the item's price for shipping on a patch. You get good quality, hard to find stuff here, but don't expect it to come cheap.



I've been to the store. The guys are really "True" to the whole metal scene. I showed up dressed like a Thrasher and they were sorta acting like I didn't belong there. They refused to converse with me. They were the stereotype of what "Black Metal" people have always been to me. Very cold, with a "Not givign a fuck, attitude." I bought a Watain Shirt, a Manowar Shirt and a patch and the guy sorta laughed at me and then told me that they only took cash, so I had to walk like 5 miles to find a godamn ATM. The price for two shirts and a patch came out to like 480 Kroner, which I found out later was like $80. They were also open really odd hours. I walked down the road about 2 miles later that day to another metalish shop, and the guy there actually talked to me and sorta badmouthed Neseblod. Don't get me wrong, I loved the place, and I'd love to go back. I just have no idea how they are able to make a living. I knew visiting Norway would be expensive, but I learned from my cousin, that it was like they ripped me off because I was a stupid American....the only problem was, they were labeled like 200 kroner a shirt.


I think you're sort of bullshitting here. First of all you don't have to walk for very long to find an ATM. Second, you won't be judged for looking "like a Thrasher", because that's how many of these guys look. "Refusing to converse with you" is pretty much how Norwegians act in general, don't blame that on Neseblod. 200 kroner for a t-shirt is pretty common in Norway. And if the "other metalish shop" is the one i think it is, it's not really comparable to Neseblod, as Neseblod is a specialist shop while the other one is a general rock/metal store. If you have a problem with weird opening hours and high prices you probably shouldn't have gone there in the first place.

TL;DR Neseblod kicks ass, and even if you're not a black metal fan it contains treasures you probably didn't think existed in a small shop in Norway.
