This. There's no hand capo or anything. He's just using his hand to keep the strings from ringing out. It also looks kind of cool, so there's that.

Don't take this to hardcore. This isn't remotely hardcore.

The best answer is to scrub your ears with steel wool and then listen to real music.

Seems like it.

For what it's worth, this thread got me listening to Nokturnal Mortum. It's a shame that I disagree with their ideology. The music is damn good.
