Hungry for a Dimmu Burger? If it's the vegan kind, some evil Florida dude is cooking up the tasty black arts for you! Hell, even Varg Vikernes could sink his murderous teeth into this.
Brian Manowitz -- a name very close to Manowar, eh? -- has launched VEGAN BLACK METAL CHEF, a detailed cooking guide website where the corpse-painted young man from Orlando offers step-by-step instructions on vegan-friendly cuisine.
His first offering, Pad Thai, has already garnered 725,000+ hits since May 9, and the YouTube clip has caught fire quicker than a Scandinavian church in February.
"First of all I am incredibly pleased and humbled from the awesome inital response," Manowitz wrote on his site, which is still under construction. "You all Kick Ass for enjoying (or not enjoying) The awesome combination of great food and blackmetal. Thank you for being patient while I get every thing up and running with this webpage. I’m kinda bootstrapping my way up with this so if everything is not just as it should be on day 3... then just calm the fuck down.
There will be many more videos, meal ideas, “recipes”, music, and misspellings to come. The main purpose of this project is to answer the question “what do vegans eat?” In the best way I can think of to explain it. It will expand a bit beyond that scope to cover other issues as well but that will still be the main focus."
We're discussing it now over on WFNX Radio...
