@Feandir: Who the hell said Tristania was even near something as vomit-worthy as black metal :huh: And btw: In terms of metal, BM is the ONLY metal that is played where I come from. You have you're everyday Nightwish and Maiden but other than that you have shit like Venom and Emperor being played.
venom is not black metal, they gave the bass for it, but they themself aren't black metal. Emperor is a very good band, but you must know there are bands and bands of black metal. There is nazism and racism on it, but is not in everyone, but stupids there are all around the world.
But black metal is not as bad as you show, there are many good bands, and they talk of many topics on their songs (listen to cradle of filth, demon burger, i mean, dimmu borgir, theatre des vampire, satyricon, and i don't know what any other bands may you hear, they aren't as bad as you say).
There are some things that are true, as bands as burzum and mayhem that got famous because of their implication on diferent strange things, like murders and things like that...
@eclipse: good point about pseudo-nazis
