Oh come on man! No offence but that is not real metal. Check out my previous post if you really wanna have your socks blown off lol. Something about that wailing blond chick just sends shivers down my spine. That's one thing that black metal excels at. I find that new-school wannabe thrash like this loses alot of the heaviness by trying to play fast. Just listen to Meshuggah's Lethargica or Rational Gaze to see that you do not need to play fast to be heavy as a.....really heavy thing.........lol. Sorry for the SYL joke, I had to lol.

I hate to sound disheartened, but I was raised as a devout christian, now incredibly disenchanted. Why is it that all the good people are incarcerated or killed, while the demons run amok? If there really is a God that loves and cherishes us, than why would he allow this? Freewill or no freewill, if there is truth to our plight as described in the bible, than why do the good suffer, while the evil among us excel in whatever they do. Those who take are given things while those who work for everything are shoved under-foot and shown the door (figuratively speaking). Is this just a test? I'm starting to lean towards the realization that the Morning Star has won and God has just forsaken us. Some words of wisdom would be much appreciated, as I am running out of reasons to keep caring. If this is one big test, I'm failing.

If you think that's bad, than check this one out. It will have your skin crawling in no time. I am somewhat a fan of this style of music and even I was taken aback by this video. I have seen many brutal death metal and black metal videos in the past, but there's something about this one that just pushes the creepiness envelope right over the edge. Gave me chills (the bad kind) the first time I watched it. I don't know how to embed quite yet, so I will post a link instead.

Dimmu Borgir - Gateways (Watch at own discretion. Those of weak will may be disturbed.)

It's not meant to be taken seriously. Also, look at the symbolism, apart from the obvious. Look beyond the obvious. If you look at some of their older videos, too, you will see that they have gone from what I call the "standard" black metal look to this new look, which I think is even more disturbing than the whole corpse-paint fad. I realize that symbolism may not be your forte, but try. Also, Cannibal Corpse consists of some of the nicest people I have ever met. The boys in Dimmu Borgir (from Poland btw the land of black metal) are true-blue devil-worshippers though. Not the kind of people you want to meet in a dark alley. Cannibal Corpse is a bunch of p ssies compared to these guys.Also, if I may add, did you even listen to the song all the way through (no offense but it had to be said) as whenever that blond chick wails, it buries the needle on the creep-o-meter. When it comes to sheer creepiness, Dimmu Borgir takes the cake. Cannibal Corpse just tries to come up with a million ways to say "I will kill you," On the other hand, black metal is pretty much rooted in satanism/Thelemism. (Behemoth even named one of their albums Thelema.6)

Oh dude, look I'll come clean, I was being sarcastic, I thought you were too, I've met Dimmu Borgir and they're just a bunch of guys that drink beer and don't take themselves too seriously, the whole Satanic music thing is a big joke, please don't be buying it.

Lots of people will always think and say that Black Sabbath are devil worshipers and thats just not true at all...

Heres a couple of lines from their song Into The Void,from their 1971 album Master Of Reality...

"Leave the earth to satan and his slaves...

Leave them to their future in their graves...

Make a home where love is there to stay...

Peace and happiness in every day"

And so obviously they were not devil worshipers,but the people who accuse them of being so,are probably the ones who are worshiping the devil...

Okay, so maybe Dimmu Borgir wasn't the best example in that context(never met them. Met Behemoth once, pretty solid dudes). There are quite a few black metal bands, though (especially from the Netherlands and Poland) that actually practice what they preach. Church burnings, murders, suicide, you name it, they do it. Hell, the singer of Gorgoroth actually blew his brains out with a shotgun and then his band-mates proceeded with making necklaces out of the skull fragments, which they now wear 24-7. I met their drummer once and he showed me his. That conversation did not last very long needless to say lol. I don't really take any of the messages of these bands seriously, as I probably would not listen to most of them if I did, but some of the subject matter and symbology that they promote kinda bothers me sometimes (and I am a diehard metalhead). I can honestly say though, that the first time I saw that Dimmu vid, I was like "F ck yeah!", but then I looked closer, and was a bit creeped out. I was only trying to show these guys what a satanic message really looks like lol.

Seriously? Some of you need to really chill out. It's music. Unless it has been proven to make kids become Satan's children, your arguments are all for not. There's really nothing behind it all. Just people singing about Satan in one form or another.

Couldn't have said it better myself. These Right-wing, pseudo-christian fascists are the real evil among us. The funny thing is, if you go up to a guy in corpse paint, he's more likely to be nice to you than one of these Christo-fascists (sorry for the made-up word. It'll catch on eventually lol)

I have actually heard from the mouth of Tony Iommi himself that they only latched on to the whole dark image when they found out that it sold records. Before Ozzy joined, they were just a blues quartet. Same goes for all of those god-awful hair metal bands (and most early thrash bands) that used pentagrams and such to promote themselves. Alot of people are attracted to things that shock them. That's why Marilyn Manson was so popular in the late-90s (Oh yea, and guess what, he isn't a satanist either, just found that the shock-factor sells records, just like Black Sabbath).

Well I guess that sort of depends, do you consider us in the USA who pay taxes to effectively allow our government to bomb and murder hundreds of thousands of innocents around the globe to be righteous god-fearing folk? We all can sit here and talk about this being "real" or "not real" but the bottom line is that there is right and wrong in the world and which side are we truly on??

Then the next logical question from that is if we are on the wrong side how did we get here and what is keeping us here in this "wrong" position?

Music is music sure, but you do not see a correlation between this type of music stated by the OP and a change in the general populations willingness to go along with these same said agendas? If not go along by force or because it is the norm, but simply because some really don't know the difference anymore between right and wrong?

IDK I feel like I am babbling, and I want this whole theory to be total BS like no other, believe me!!

But again I must state I really feel there is some truth to this satanic/global mafia/ hip hop/ influence on the world we live in whether we want to admit that it is possible, or not!

Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.




Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.



Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here.

I believe the Bible wholeheartedly and unashamedly. I used to be deeply involved in witchcraft, I have seen so many supernatural things with my own physical eyes, I could fill an entire forum. I have seen the kingdom of darkness in action, and have encountered many demons. God revealed himself to me in an incredible way, and I gave him my life. I don't care what anyone says; there is power in God's Word. There is a heaven and a hell, angels and demons, and an entire supernatural realm at work in the world around us. Through the power of the Word, I have exorcised many, many demons (they would not leave if there were no power) So, there is no reason to patronize someone because their beliefs are not the same as yours. A person with an experience is never at the mercy of a person with an argument.

The greatest trick Satan ever played was to convince the world he was not real.

Thanks, man. Very hard to find positivity in such a negative world sometimes. Seems like all there is in the world is negativity sometimes. I have to admit, the more I look at it though, the more I see life as a test of will. There are so many deceivers and corrupters, but for some, the path shines through them all. Some people say that path leads to god, some to their inner self. To me, it does not matter what you believe, so long as you believe in something. Personally, deep down, I believe that heaven and hell are all around us, and we experience that which we are meant to. People tend to put physical connotations to things of this nature, which, I believe, the primary source of deception in this world. People are so focused on the physical, that they refuse to even consider the untangible forces that guide nature and man collectively. I mean, just look at the many forms and facets of nature. They all ebb and flow collectively, as if by design. To say that this is all random is far from the truth, in my eyes. I believe there is some sort of force within all things that is the catalyst, if you will, for everything, and I don't mind calling that God. Don't you dare call me a christian though lol. Spirituality, in my opinion, is essential, but religion is just man's corrupted rendition of it:"Worship me or you'll burn in a lake of fire!"
Gotta love catholics eh? I walked in on a sermon one day and the priest was in the middle of saying "Thou shalt not masturbate!" Upon hearing that I quickly wheeled my butt out of there lol. (sorry I had to lol)

There's a whole subdivision of metal called black metal centered around Satanism, magic, witchcraft and the occult. Naturally I expected to come in here and see those sorts of songs in the OP. Jay-Z and Kanye West? Really? That's the best you can do when there's entire bands dedicated to these subjects?

I fail to see why musicians can't use the mythology of Christianity as material for their lyrics.

By the way music has referenced mythology pretty much forever, Christian mythology is about two thousand years old now and some of its ideas stretch back farther into Judaism.

How far back do you want me to go, shall we call Bobby Vee part of this "conspiracy"



There are real problems in the world that need real solutions, why are we hung up on this absolute nonsense?
