    I laugh every day with the Daily Abbath. I do accept that I like some black metal songs, but for my perspective, Immortal is.... not my kind of music.

    But, why do we need to make fun of him? I mean, why specifically him?

    What have you heard by them?



    I wouldn't try to find logic or reason in an internet meme.

    Abbath is something of a comical figure. I'm pretty sure he doesn't take himself very seriously. Which, obviously, leads to many fantastic jokes. I mean, just check out the crab dance near 0:44!



    And the exaggerated facial expressions!

    While other black metal artist are busy burning churches and bitching about other black metal bands, Abbath is busy being fucking awesome.

    Hahahaha, Ok, I see the point. This guy is awesome. I'm pretty sure if he sees the memes laughs too.

    I liked his explanation on why burn churches.

    To be honest, I feel like it's more like we're laughing WITH him than at him. He knows it's cheesy and silly.

    His segment for guitar world a few years ago is one of the best things ever - He'd demo one of his riffs and then impulsively sing the lyrics while doing so - I can only assume because it's the only way he knows how to play the songs in the first place.

    I don't listen to Immortal, and I don't think these memes are poking fun at Abbath. I think it's simply hillarious seeing the character superimposed into all the different pictures. Damn funny stuff, right there!

    Never listened to Immortal before, but it's really not that bad. I think the guy has a great deal of humor about his band and that whole "scene". Very entertaining guy, and the memes are hilarious. His pronunciation of "Abbath" had me thinking "Hey, Abbbaaaattttthhhh!!!"

    I was convinced it was some sort of hint about the PPUSA XVI announcement. At least that's the only sane explanation I had for it, besides "because it's funny".

    I was wrong, and Glenn is just crazy. :)
