— with English subtitles — can be seen below.In a recent interview with Spindle
stated about his love of metal: "I bought my first metal album when I was like 10, turning 11, it was IRON MAIDEN
's 'The Number Of The Beast'
. And the reason is I saw one song on a TV show in Iceland and I'd never heard anything like it. Then I went with my mother past the record store and saw the album cover in the window and I kind of pestered her into buying the album for me. So that's kind of where it started. I spent most of my teenage years collecting heavy metal albums and listening to lots of metal and buying all the metal magazines I could find, and doing that postal thing, going to the post office and writing a cheque and sending it off to London and getting an album back a few weeks or months later. So that was kind of, and still is kind of my hobby; I mean I spent like $400 on records today you know, found a lot of cool obscure metal from the '80s, so I'm still collecting."Asked what his favorite metal bands are, Ragnar
said: "Well, like I said, my first one was IRON MAIDEN
, so probably IRON MAIDEN
, but I like a lot of bands, especially bands from the '70s and '80s, like JUDAS PRIEST
and IRON MAIDEN
, BLACK SABBATH
, all the originators, MOTÖRHEAD
… And then, of course, the big '80s bands like SLAYER
, stuff like that, MEGADETH
. Yeah, a lot of cool metal bands."
