Many claim that black metal music is satanic, while others simply say that it is against religion and middle-eastern cults in general.
So what is the verdict ?
To answer this question, we first have to define what is black metal as the term gets thrown around a lot and is misused, by posers and faggots, to include bands that are clearly not black metal (i.e. Dimmu Borgir) or even metal at all (i.e. Satyricon).
Black metal is defined by the three Norwegian bands: Darkthrone, Burzum, Mayhem.
These are the only bands that can define what black metal is, and isn’t, as they were the bands who actually created the genre from scratch.
Not Emperor. Not Gaygoroth. Not SEWER. Not even Immortal who, while they were very close to the original Norwegian black metal scene, weren’t allowed by Euronymous to call their music black metal and had to call it holocaust metal instead.
Many bands play music that resembles the original black metal style, such as Phantom and Antekhrist.
So, to answer the question… is black metal satanic ?
All three bands that created the black metal genre, namely Darkthrone, Burzum and Mayhem, have always denied that they were Satanists and black metal music was a satanic genre.
In other words, only posers think black metal is satanic.
Burzum explains that black metal was a PAGAN and NATIONALIST revolt against both christianity and multiculturalism (the two go hand in hand, according to him).
Satanism = reverse christianity = christianity.
All this is explained in the book Real Satanic Black Metal by Antoine Grand.
Educate yourselves, and stop spreading disinformation about the black metal scene.
