I never really could understand the the frack those guys were saying in Mayhem and Burzum in the guttural groans I like to hear what the fella is
saying , But i could understand where they were coming from through resisting the church. I prefer Varg era Mayhem myself. It is the classic case of
rebellion with this genre in particular. Im more of a thrash metal kind of guy. In my day we had Venom and it was the original Black Metal literally i
delved in to the black arts going through a certain phase as a kid. Im a big slayer fan to this day and as a teen i would wear my SlaYeR shirt proudly
"still do" and would receive a mortified response from my teachers and looks of utter shock in response to the pentagram. With all intents and
purposes I enjoyed it. With Slayer most people really did not get the point either, they were not so much about worshiping Satan "so people thought"
Araya is a devout Catholic... and rather then defying such modern day religion and the church that is "corrupt to the core" pointing at all of it's
warped and contradictory ways, they accomplished that and provoke critical thinking of the Church and what it has become. Many people who call
themselves Christians are quite the opposite, with these bands you get the same method in reverse. That is why Maralyn Manson was and is so
successful, that is why Alice Cooper is the Godfather of shock rock to this day.
The white and black makeup is nothing new or EVIL, I remember parents freaked out at the image of Gene Simmons regurgitating blood and breathing fire
in the 70's ... THE DEMON, but he was just a nice Jewish kid from New York.
People like the bad guys more then the good guys and more so why not play the villain and go all out? Myself im disgusted with religious fanatics
imposing their ideals on others in Gods name, and people who think that they attend a church every Sunday that treat people like dirt the other 6 days
of the week. Those people put on an act and a show just like these bands in turn. So when i play a Mayhem album or go to a local Slipknot concert
among maggots am I evil? I think these bands play a vital role they scare the crap out of the very people who think they are holier than thou, the
real evil people who feel the need to control and the PMRC and the lousy parents that have such angry kids. It is actually quite therapeutic.
I still thrash heavy on the Bass to such EVIL music
Great Film and I highly recommend you see this, gives great insight in to Black Metal.
