While I agree that rap and death metal are quite dark the difference is clear. Rap fans are imitating the imagery, personas and themes presented in
rap music and subculture. Black on black violence is epidemic and includes innocent bystanders quite often.
In metal we may wear a battle vest (jean jacket with patches), mosh at concerts, and enjoy the energetic level of metal, however we don't run around
starting World War 2, killing each other, or terrorizing innocent bystanders.
Comparing them at a general level is quite a disservice to both I'd say.
Yes I'm a metalhead at heart and I've never committed any serious crimes.
On the OP topic... it's totally insane. These people have totally lost it.
