There can be few bands in the world of metal with a history as convoluted and confusing as VON. Formed around 1987, the group were arguably the first black metal act in North America and proved both revolutionary and uncompromising, illuminating some listeners while simultaneously alienating many more, their truly barbaric primitivism proving unpalatable to the majority of heavy metal fans at the time. But despite that fact - or indeed because of it - in the years that followed their three-letter, one syllable name would be spoken in the hushed tones of utmost respect. VON would take on an almost mythical status, not least because there was so much confusion about the people behind the band.

As surely as heavy metal itself begins with Black Sabbath, U.S. black metal begins with VON - whatever the original impetus behind recording such a jarring racket, VON's dedication to dark imagery and unrefined sounds herald the arrival of the black metal ethos to the United States.
