According to SBS, BURZUM mainman Kristian 'Varg' Vikernes - who has been accused of inciting racial hatred - has denied posting racist blogs as he went on trial in France, claiming they were penned by someone posing to be him.

Vikernes was arrested in July last year in France's central Correze region on suspicion of plotting terrorist attacks but was released after 48 hours due to lack of evidence.

He was however charged with inciting racial hatred and defending war crimes on his blog.

Police allegedly found racist and anti-Semitic material on his computer as well.

"I did not write the things that appear in the summons," the Bergen-born musician told a Paris court.

Vikernes said a possible misunderstanding could have arisen because he communicated through a Danish interpreter when he was briefly held in custody last year.

The 10 excerpts are taken from articles written between March and June 2013 and attack Muslims and Jews.

Vikernes told the court that according to Norwegian secret police there were "at any given moment 350 people pretending to be Varg Vikernes on Facebook", adding that "anybody can very easily put up a blog" that appeared to be one of his.
