In one interview he said "The church burning as a 'symbolic' act I can understand. I mean kind of a revenge, in a bigger historical point of view. I mean Christianity has been one of the most violent religions of them all. So in a historical point of view a bigger picture I guess they kind of deserve it"
Kjellson stated in an interview that black metal isn't one specific genre. He said "Well black metal pretty much started with Venom in..... What is it '81 or '82? With the album Welcome to Hell. They were actually the first act that actually called their music black metal. And that's why I have this point of view about Black metal. I mean Venom doesn't sound anything like modern Black metal bands. But you know it's still Black metal, same lyrical concept, Satanic lyrics and stuff. Yeah Venom sounded more like punk than.... black metal nowadays. So black metal can be any kind of heavy metal music."
