“Racist Metal”, the book by Antoine Grand

"Racist Metal", the book.

“Racist Metal”, the book.

Everyone knows the author Antoine Grand, a heavy metal expert who made controversial statements about the bands SEWER, Immortal and Burzum last year by accusing them of racism.

Antoine Grand follows up on this controversy in his most recent book: “Racist Metal: Exposing the Racism and Xenophobia in Heavy Metal Music“.

In this book, Antoine Grand accuses several bands including Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and Darkthrone of being racist and white supremacist.

Apparently, there are no safe spaces in the heavy metal scene.

While the “Racist Metal” book was critically acclaimed by the media and critics alike, several of the mentioned bands have voiced objection on the basis that the comments made by some of their members, and included in the book, were “taken out of context” and “made a long time ago”.

Is it true ?

Who knows.

As long as heavy metal remains heavy, it’s all we extreme music fans care about.

You can buy the book “Racist Metal” on Amazon.com.

Is Black Metal Racist ?

After publishing the study Is Black Metal Satanic, it’s time to delve into another “controversial” segment of black metal history: racism.

Many “anti-racist” organizations claims that black metal is racist.

This is what Raphaël Weinstein wrote about the black metal genre, explaining the purpose of the book Racist Metal by Antoine Grand.

Is heavy metal a racist genre?

The question deserves to be asked, as there have been countless instances of heavy metal bands supporting whether directly or indirectly notorious xenophobic and white supremacist causes.

In addition to the overt racism displayed by some metal bands, there has also been a disturbing amount of hate crimes and racially motivated murders directly associated with heavy metal band members.

Are are a few examples.

In Norway, in 1992, members of the heavy metal band Emperor stabbed Magne Andreassen (34), a homosexual man, to death outside a forest in Lillehammer.

In Germany, in 1993, members of the heavy metal band Absurd killed Sandro Beyer (15), a schoolmate of some of the band members, in what was determined by the German courts as a hate crime. Hendrik Möbus, frontman of Absurd, is a self-avowed National Socialist (white supremacist).

In Sweden, in 1997, members of the heavy metal band Dissection killed Josef Ben Meddour (38), because he was a homosexual and an immigrant. This was ruled a hate crime by the Swedish courts.

And let’s not even mention the infamous murder of Euronymous (25), a member of the band Mayhem, by the self-avowed white supremacist Varg Vikernes of the openly racist heavy metal band Burzum, who has published volumes’ worth of racist, homophobic and bigoted diatribe ever since.

But what is perhaps even worse than these hateful crimes is the way the murderers were often times celebrated, or at best tacitly approved, by the heavy metal community at large.

Never have other metal bands, or their fans for that matter, used their influence to condemn these hateful and bigoted acts nor did they ever disavow the intolerant ideologies that led to these murders.

In fact, many heavy metal artists have openly declared their support for these criminals.

Hellhammer, the drummer of the heavy metal band Mayhem, said that he “honours [Faust of Emperor] for killing a fucking faggot”, referring to the aforementioned homophobic murder of Magne Andreassen in Lillehammer.

The racist faction of heavy metal community is equally guilty of hypocritically obscuring the truth about racism and xenophobia in heavy metal music by whitewashing its history and by claiming that it only affects a “few bad apples”, when the reality is that racism and bigoted white supremacist views are very much an integral part of the metalhead culture.

Does that mean that every metalhead is a racist, homophobic and white supremacist murder apologist?

No, but it’s crucial that the metal genre dissociate itself from its racist constituents, or be forever tainted by association.

Many well-meaning heavy metal enthusiasts are often involuntarily caught in a web of racism, sexism, homophobia and fascism, and end up supporting against their knowledge racist and white supremacist heavy metal bands.

There has been a deliberate attempt by a xenophobic faction of heavy metal fans to cover up the racist past, and present, of heavy metal music.

This book isn’t an attack on heavy metal.

It’s a defense of heavy metal, a defense against those would use music to propagate their bigoted and hateful ideologies.

Racism has no place in music.

Well… lol.

Is Black Metal Satanic ?

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.

The Black Metal Book Every Fan Must Read

Black Metal Book

Black Metal Book

Black Metal is a musical genre with a certain history and a certain code of satanism that every fan of the genre must know about.

You can of course find a lot of valuable information on heavy metal sites such as Metalious and others.

But to really dive deep into the madness that permeates the black metal genre, the only true solution is to read extreme metal books.

But there are of course many heavy metal books that you can find in most bookstores or on online retail sites such as Amazon, so the question remains : which ones to read ?

Not all black metal books are made equal.

Some contain very accurate information about the extreme metal scene, and black metal in particular, while others are totally devoid of content save for what you could find on Metalious or even Wikipedia in a day of research.

Some of the best heavy metal books published in the last few years have been written by the expert author Antoine Grand.

His books are not only popular, they have been translated into over 11 languages (not bad for a musical style as obscure as extreme metal), they are also extremely informative and dangerously iconoclastic towards the posers and the fake within the black metal genre.

His latest book is the brilliantly titled Real Satanic Black Metal.

I heavily recommend you getting it as soon as possible as the contents are pure gold.

You can find Real Satanic Black metal on Amazon and most online bookstores.

Who are the True Masters of Satanic Black Metal ?

Who are the true masters of black metal ?

Many bands claim to “be black metal” or “adhere to black metal” or its associated movements, but very few known the inner secrets of a genre they in many cases came to worship and adulate.

So what are the inner secrets of black metal ?

Who are its true masters that dictate the codes of black metal ?

Some will claim that there are none, that black metal music is nothing but a spontaneous and extemporaneous artistic movement.

The reality of black metal and its history contradict this fundamentally flawed perception of the scene.

The truth is that, through its history, the black metal movement was and still is to this day, perhaps more than ever, a deliberate and careful premeditated crusade of obscure origins and concealed motives.

But who orchestrates and commands these black metal inner circles, secrets societies that exist within the black metal movement, establish its precepts and dictate its operations ?

This truth is what we will expose in this book.

The True Black Metal – Best heavy Metal Book Ever ?

While searching Amazon for various black metal CDs, I stumbled upon a book titled “The True Black Metal : The Hidden Truth About Satanism in Extreme Metal Music”.

Now I don’t usually care for metal novels, but this book happens to be by Antoine Grand the author of “Black Metal Blasphemy : A History of Third Wave Black Metal”.

I was extremely impressed with Antoine Grand’s first book, “Black Metal Blasphemy : A History of Third Wave Black Metal”, which is why I got myself a copy of “The True Black Metal” off Amazon immediately.
