Well then, this has been productive!

Sure, but that doesn’t answer the question. What would it mean to ‘address it at all’ in terms of specific action? How might one ‘lead the charge to change that’? If you play in a band that’s influenced by an old BM band whose members have said or done sketchy things, should you issue a disclaimer stating that you disagree with what the members in question said or did before you play your songs? Should you write lyrics about how Varg Vikernes and Rob Darken are assholes, which nobody will be able to make out because, hey, you’re in a black metal band?

I’ve seen a lot of comments to this effect around Daniel’s conversation piece — that BM’s historical ties to bigotry etc. “need to be addressed” — but it’s still unclear to me what musicians are supposed to do to comply with this request.

Out of curiosity, what would a band with a noticeable Emperor influence (just for example) have to do to “really address” the fact that Faust committed a hate crime 22 years ago?

I actually wrote a long thing on this subject not too long ago!

You know I love Metallica too, but it’s a pretty bad sign if the best song they’ve recorded since Bush I was in office was written by someone else.

That would be me — I’m responsible for the barn animal noises. Thanks for checking the album out; glad to hear that you dug it!

What can I say? I’m a Calculating/Irony guy. I respect the pop/mathgrind fusion thing they’re doing now more than I like it.

Also, ironically, I was responsible for a Gorguts anticipation post back in 2012:

I’m the only fan on board (right guys?) and I didn’t think it was that good.

Yeah, I’d say you’re right — I’m a death metal dude at heart, and as Mike’s intro pointed out, death metal more or less won out in 2013.
