Black metal! From Houston? Meet Brimwylf

Today’s bocgemot (Old English for reading group) revisited a pivotal scene from Beowulf, where Beowulf seeks out and challenges Grendel’s mother on her own territory. Personally I was interested in the Old English word Brimwylf (water-wolf), which is the poem’s initial reference to Grendel’s mother. You can imagine my delight/surprise when I stumbled across the following modern appropriation of the same word! Check out the original post which includes a short interview discussing the inspiration behind the band’s name.
