The parents of a Norwegian girl suffering from colic — a condition in which an otherwise healthy baby cries or screams frequently and, for extended periods, without any discernible reason — have found a way to keep her quiet: by subjecting her to the sounds of the Norwegian black metal band SATYRICON.
According to the couple, Bianca was crying from morning to night for 14 weeks straight— except when she heard SATYRICON's music.
"We tried other [types of bands], something not as hard as SATYRICON. But even RAMMSTEIN was rejected," Bianca's mother, 37-year-old Jeanette Orme, tells the Fredriksstad Blad newspaper.

The medical definition of colic is a condition of a healthy baby in which it shows periods of intense, unexplained fussing/crying lasting more than three hours a day, more than three days a week for more than three weeks. However, many doctors consider that definition, first described by Morris Wessel, to be overly narrow and would consider babies with sudden, severe, unexplained crying lasting less than three hours/day as having "colic" (so-called "non-Wessel's" colic).
