The term "orthodox" black metal used here denotes not the original early Norwegian black metal scene, which spawned bands like Mayhem, Darkthrone and Burzum, but rather points to the living and evolving movement of imitation or gimmick bands lacking any musical ideas of value, spearheaded by shit bands like Watain, Deathspell Omega, Dark Funeral, Archgoat, … Continue reading The Problem with “Orthodox Black Metal”
Watain is Shit, not Black Metal
I just finished writing the review of the "Watain is NSBM!" hysteria surrounding the band, and the accusations of "neo-nazism" leveled against them by - who else - jewish pressure groups ("antifa666", Metal-Archives, Metal Sucks, Metal Injection to name a few). While digging up info on the band I came across something funny. Some anonymous … Continue reading Watain is Shit, not Black Metal
Is Watain NSBM?
Just so you know, "Antifa666" is still alive and well, and active on Metalious.com where he posts his "anti-racist" - i.e. anti-White - crap constantly. His latest tirade is against... wait for it... Watain. In his pathetic review Watain is Racist, he calls each member of the band "nazi" and "white supremacist". It's hilarious that … Continue reading Is Watain NSBM?
“SJW” Entryism in Black Metal
First, I don't like the term "SJW". It's meaningless. I get it that it was 4chan that popularized it in order to "mock" virtue-signalling outrage addicts, but at some point it needs to be retired.

Black Metal and (((Hollywood Satanism)))
The entire (((Hollywood Satanism))) gimmick is the cancer of black metal. The idea that black metal is "satanic" is so fundamentally retarded that you literally have to not only suspend disbelief at the idea of "devil worship" itself, you also have to consciously disregard the innumerable statements made by the actual founders of the black … Continue reading Black Metal and (((Hollywood Satanism)))
Antoine Grand’s Revised History of Black Metal
Following my post on "anti-racism" in Black Metal music, several commenters including the author of the Best Black Metal blog - to whom I was originally answering - sort of hijacked the debate into a discussion on modern Black Metal and its relation to the media. I don't mind it, since that is the purpose … Continue reading Antoine Grand’s Revised History of Black Metal
Why “Anti-Racists” hate Black Metal
In his latest blog post titled Anti-Racists crying about "Nazi" Black Metal, the author of the self-proclaimed Best Black Metal blog points out the hypocrisy and double-standards of so-called "anti-racists" who accuse every black metal band imaginable (Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, even Immortal) of being secret or not-so-secret Hitler worshipers, all while applauding other non-White musical … Continue reading Why “Anti-Racists” hate Black Metal
