Adventure: Helvete, the Heart of Norwegian Black Metal

Before heading to find the former location of Helvete (the black metal record shop where euronymous founded deathlike silence productions), I tried to translate a quick note that was supposed to say (but I'm sure the translation is shaky) "Is this where the music store 'Helvete' used to be? 56 Schweigaardsgate, yes? They played music in the basement. They wrote 'BLACK METAL' on the wall. Is it still there?"

The building is now a coffee shop and bakery. I had a danish and a cup of coffee while trying to figure out the best way to ask the owners about the store's former life as the hub of the black metal scene. After speaking to the owner, he was nice enough to tell me to go around the back where he would open the gate and bring me downstairs.
