I say bull doody to all of this.
I am a metal head. Listening to extreme metal has exposed me to a vast amount of dark, oppressive themes, with threatening overtones and undertones,
with lyrics referencing the end of times, the bowels of the realms of Hell, the sicknesses inherent in the human condition, referencing brutalities
and horrors inflicted on the human psyche, spirit, and the body.
However, just because all of those things can be found within the music or the lyrics, or indeed both, does not make me any more likely to decide one
day, that the best use of my time would be to find a loose chunk of masonry, and use it to open the cranium of random passers by, just to see what
their brains look like.
I am aware enough to know that when I DO get volcanically angry, that is a fault with me, and no one outside my flesh and blood has any
responsibility to bare for that.
