Phil Anselmo doesn't really do death metal and yes...he's a moron which is a shame because he's probably the best live front man of all time.

"Satan" is a fictional character.
"Death Metal" is a real form of music.
Only an idiot thinks "Satan" is an actual person. In the Bible it is NOT a proper name. It is a word, just like "bastard" or "telephone".
Claiming that Death Metal is "Satanic" is the same as saying it is an adversary, as that is the true meaning of the word.
Again, it was not and IS not a proper name, and the usage in the Bible does NOT refer to any "Dark Lord" with horns, a pitchfork, and hooves. That description of some kind of demon is a relatively recent invention, and "Satan" was a character in a work of fiction by John Milton, which was not published until the mid-1600s.
Being afraid of Satan is the same as being afraid of Mickey Mouse. One is as real as the others, with the same powers (none).
