If you mean "opposed to Abrahamic Religions" then yeah, a lot of it is but that would also apply to a whole heck of a lot more than just Black Metal.edit on 21-1-2011 by laterallateral because: (no reason given)
So are you saying to be opposed to abrahamic religions that is to be evil? Seriously?
By that very definition, would that not make me evil in your opinion? As I am very much opposed to abrahamic religions...
"Ninety percent of the evil black metalers from back in the early 90s were all teenagers, including myself," reflects an older, more mature Mortiis, having undergone plastic surgery to transform himself into the insanely wrinkled and wizened old gnome (replete with witch nose and pointy elf ears) he is today. Why did he go under the knife? "Being generally fascinated by all things dark and dangerous, what else are you going to do?"

Anytime you limit expression in music you are just hurting the culture.
But what about limiting an artist that is hurting the culture?
something that is harmful or undesirable

I never understood it
I'm a smooth jazz man. Peaceful, soothing...relaxing.
I'm very open-minded.. but I put death metal in the same category that i put nonsensical rap music.

I don't believe in good or evil. It's more like understanding and confusion.
Example: Hitler was extremely confused, not evil. Being evil would mean he understood he was truly evil. But Hitler believed what he did was right.
You see? Confusion.

The only instance Hitler was probably ever confused was at the end of his reign.

I believe that at one point it was evil. The intent for it's creation by Euronymous of Mayhem, was to go against the Catholic Church. They not only used the imagery, but really devoted themselves to destroying that which the Church destroyed when they forced the people of Norway, Sweden and the surrounding areas to convert.
