Idiot on facebook wants METAL to be banned.

Tags: , , , , ,

Lo and behold, me searching “Ban Metal” on facebook, got me this lovely Gem. It’s a site run by a “Jesus Freak” who is singling out all metal for being “noisy screamy satanic trash”.  Not that he has listened to any REAL metal that’s not Metalcore, or Nu-Metal mind you, but still idiots like this piss me off.

 

Let me quote some of his nonsense, and then debunk it.

 

Music should not be used to spread hatred and devil-worship!
It should be pure, harmonious and a joy to listen to for all ages.
It upsets me that screaming and songs about hell make it to the airwaves and before long, the media will be full of this filth!”

 

So metal is now spreading hatred and Devil-Worship. And it isn’t “pure, harmonious and a joy to listen to to all ages”.

 

Ahem:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every single one of these bands is A) NOT satanic, and doesn’t write songs about Hate all that much or at all. If this doesn’t suit the fundies, then a list of all the non-satanic Bands in Metal might due:

(in parentheses is the lyrical subjects)

 

Iron Maiden (history/fiction)

Death (philosophy)

Iced Earth (fiction)

Blind Guardian (fiction/fantasy)

Testament (societal issues)

Anthrax (societal issues)

Metallica (societal issues)

Megadeth (societal issues)

Helloween (don’t be fooled by the title, they are NOT satanic – Fantasy is what they write about)

Rhapsody/Rhapsody of Fire (same band – Fantasy is what they write about)

Dio (Fantasy)

Judas Priest (rebellion/love/history/etc)

Primal Fear (societal issues)

Gamma Ray (societal issues)

Manticora (fiction)

Ensiferum (epic poetry from finland)

Korpiklaani (pagan themes from finland, NOT satanic)

Eluveitie (history/pagan themes)

Einherjer (Norse Mythology/Vikings)

Tyr (Norse Mythology/Vikings)

Dream Theater (Societal Issues/Fiction)

Fates Warning (Societal Issues/Fiction/History)

Queensryche (Societal Issues/Fiction)

Voivod (weird art like lyrics that are cryptic)

Vintersorg (ditto)

Communic (history/etc)

Katatonia (dark depressing lyrics)

My Dying Bride (dark depressing lyrics)

Paradise Lost (dark depressing lyrics)

Rapture (dark depressing lyrics)

Anathema (dark depressing lyrics)

Amorphis (dark depressing lyrics)

 

Now for some Death Metal bands that are NOT satanic:

 

Hypocrisy (Alien Abductions/Conspiraces/etc)

Amon-Amarth (Vikings/Norse Mythology. Anti-christian, sure, but that’s the way Vikings Were in real life, christians tried

to brainwash them at sword point to be Christ Worshippers back in the middle ages)

At the Gates (Nihilism)

Opeth (depressing subjects)

Dark Tranquility (Society)

In Flames (Society/History)

Many others I won’t name that are Melodic Death Metal or Progressive Death Metal.

Only GORE-METAL, and Brutal Death metal have SOME satanic bands, not a whole lot:

 

 

Both of my bands (even though they are extreme)Caustic Euphony (Fiction/Societal Issues/Anti-Censorship)

Unleashing Vengeance (Non-Serious Lyrics/Anti-Censorship/Brainwashing/Corruption/Political/

Fiction/etc)

 

The Following bands are Christian Metal:

 

Black Sabbath

Candlemass

Steel Attack

Extol (and it’s BLACK METAL!)

Stryper

 

Black Metal Bands without Satanic Themes

Behemoth

Enslaved

Borknagar

 

 

Bands with strong anti-religious sentiments that are NOT satanic:

Kreator

Destruction

 

Now for Satanic Bands:

 

Non-Black Metal

Slayer

Mercyful Fate

Venom

 

Possessed

Danzig

Vader

 

 

Black Metal

Mayhem

Emporer

Darkthrone

Burzum

Dark Funeral

Dimmu Borgir

Old Mans Child

 

 

Those are just mainstream bands. In that list 13 are satanic and <drumroll> 48 are NOT!

 

As for “screaming” which I assume is extreme vocal styles like Death and Black Metal:

34 out of  61 are extreme metal bands. 27 are non-extreme. Even though extreme outnumbers non-extreme It’s still really close and saying ALL metal bands are “screamers” is stupid.

 

Now for another point:

 

A lot of “metal” being played on the radio is not metal at all.

It’s either Punk, Nu-Metal (really a kind of alternative), Hard Rock, Shock Rock, Industrial, etc.

 

Marilyn Manson = Shock Rock/Industrial

Ministry = Industrial

Lamb of God = Metalcore (A kind of Punk with metal influences, NOT metal)

Trivium = Metalcore

Bullet  for my Valentine = Metalcore

Tons of other bands like that = Metalcore

Slipknot = Nu-Metal (A kind of alternative)

System of a Down = Nu-Metal

Rage against the machine = Rock with Rap vocals! NOT Metal

Limp Bizkit = Same Thing

GWAR = Shock Rock

Kiss = Rock

Led Zeppelin = Rock

Van Halen = Rock

Ac/dc = Rock

Fear Factory = Industrial

 

A LOT of Popular bands classified under metal are NOT metal at all. The really good bands that are metal are very unpopular and thus would have never even been played on the radio at all! This person claims that : “screaming and songs about hell make it to the airwaves”. He’s probably hearing crap like the above bands, and a lot of these above bands suck! Even I think that, and I’m a metalhead!

Either he’s mistaken by above bands and has never heard any REAL metal, or he’s an idiot using bands like that to scapegoat all metal as Evil. 

 

More crap from him:

 

hey kids… one day ya’ll grow up, and you’ll realize that your life don’t suck and you’ll be ashemed of the loyal headbangers you were… release yourself,and go listen to other kinds of music, wtf, fucking fat teens hating life n’ stuff… i know that you sing that song that you curse, so release yourself fat “sad” kid, Stop trying to be tough listen to this just because you can’t beat the bullys… so get up and become one of them, it’s just a matter of effort.”

 

So our life sucks because were metalheads! WTF! He is demanding we listen to other forms of music. Then he calls us all fat teens who hate life. What the hell is this idiot smoking. 

 

I don’t know if any of you have seen this new video by the slayers, it’s abhorrent #spreadingawareness

 

This “Video” is from 1986! IT’S NOT NEW YOU IDIOT! That’s not #Spreadingawareness, that’s #IMAFUCKINGIDIOT

 

 “I recently discoverd a progressive death metal band by the name of Amen. Needless tosay my interest was peaked -‘Amen’ is one of the most sacred words one can say in the name of the Lord (Jesus) When I heard the music I cannot describe how angry I felt – I immediately ran to my loving wife and gave her a stern telling off for no reason. When I finally came too I was in a hospital bed. Apparently I had a ‘hate attack’ triggered by the repugnant tones of this sinful band. This music is hatred incarnate – #BANMETAL

 

So he is saying it’s evil because it’s death metal? What kind of idiot says that? So the music made him angry? What kind of moron is this?

 

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

I believe a Christian band has infiltrated your legions of debauched heathens and shall be preaching the word of the Lord at one of your terrible concerts, I shall most certainly be there front and centre

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 

I believe a Christian band has infiltrated your legions of debauched heathens and shall be preaching the word of the Lord at one of your terrible concerts, I shall most certainly be there front and centre

 

 

 So he is calling, Accept, Anthrax, Sabaton (A Power Metal band FFS!), Avantasia (Rock Opera! band), Amorphis, Wolfsbane, Last in Line (Dio Tribute), and KING DIAMOND Heathens? To him Any metal band must be a heathen!

 

 

Metal should be banned for many reasons. Some of them are:

1. It all sounds the same.
2. It’s all just screaming.
3. It causes school shootings.
4. It distracts young people away from the one true path of Christ our savior.
5. Satan is bad and Metal is bad for being satanic.
6. Long hair is for girls.”

 

1 – This idiot thinks all metal sounds the same. Well….. He’s only heard NU-METAL, which is crap played on the radio which isn’t even metal at all, but shitty alternative. He’s never heard Melodeath, Folk Metal, Power Metal, Prog Metal, Progressive Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, Viking Metal, or Black Metal, or Progressive Black Metal. Each genre sounds radically different from the other. 


Melodeath – Brutally heavy, yet lots of melody, harsh vocals, simple riffs mostly.

Folk Metal – Massively Varied Genre, each band sounds radically different from the other because Folk Music is very varied and so is metal, so when you get one band combining one form of folk music with another form of metal it will sound different from a folk metal band using different forms of folk and metal. Ensiferum is Finnish Folk mixed with Melodic Death Metal. Korpiklaani mixes Finnish “Humpa” polka-like music with Thrash Metal. Finntroll mixes that with Black Metal. 

Power Metal – High Pitched non-screaming vocals, fast guitars, epic melodies, classical influence, it’s the entire anthithesis to his argument!

Prog Metal – Complex music structures, long song lengths, softer approach compared to other forms of metal, concept albums, weird sounding riffs, very experimental.

Progressive Thrash Metal – A mix of progressive metal and the very fast aggressive thrash metal style that Metallica and Megadeth Play.

Doom Metal – Haunting melodies, simple song structures, slow drumming, haunting low pitched vocals, depressing lyrical subjects.

Viking Metal – Sounds like black metal with folk metal influences. Lyrics about norse mythology mostly.

Black Metal – Bad production, non-chord, harmonic guitar structure where several guitarists play notes and vary the notes to create an evil sound, fast drumming, very harsh vocals, Evil Satanic Lyrics mostly.

Progressive Black Metal – A hybrid of Prog Metal and Black Metal. Black metal harmonies are used but experimentation means that new harmonies are used a lot more, time changes are quite common, lyrics are NOT satanic like in Normal black metal. Very weird sounding.

All of the above metal subgenres sound very different from eachother! So much for it “sounding all the same!”

 

2 -My List above disproves this totally.

3 – WTF! Last time I checked, there wasn’t a single School shooting triggered by a metal band. This guy is just pulling crap out of his ass now!  Marilyn manson is the only band I know connected to a school shooting and that aint metal! 

4 – Good. Your Savior’s religion Supports beating and raping to control the minds of people to become loyal subjects, torture, Child Molestation, Brainwashing ,since that is what it does all of it’s history is about condemning people for sins (Crap like You’re gonna Burn in Hell for being proud, etc is proof of this. It’s just like the military hazing people saying “you’re not a soldier, you a pile of shit!” in boot camp. Same premise!) and verbal abuse is normal to them. Hell they invented it!

5 – Satan is fiction. Metal is mostly non satanic and you’re an idiot for saying it is!

6 – True, But many metalheads are short-haired like me. IDIOT! 

 

 “One of lady GAGA’s songs has more views than all metal bands in the world.
BAN METAL.”

 

That’s because Lady Gaga is pop, artifical music made with a computer that is easy to get into therefore most people like it. Metal is like classical on guitar, it isn’t mainstream due to crap like Limp Bizkit, Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, etc.

 

He states that metal has some “Scary Crime Statistics” related to it. I looked through a google search to find out more. I came across this site. It’s a blog article talking about “heavy metal killers”. In each of the cases where metal cd’s were found in the posession of a murderer, there is always a more likely cause to their crime then “Metal made me do it”.   I quote:

 

Name: Jared Lee Loughner

Alleged crime: Fired a 9 mm Glock into a crowd outside a Safeway in Tuczon, Ariz., killing six people and injuring 14 others, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Date of incident: Jan. 8, 2011

Heavy metal gets fingered: “Loughner’s embrace of Bodies — at least as the backdrop to a favorite video — strikes a familiarly chilling chord: The Drowning Pool song served as the soundtrack to a double murder in Oakton, where in 2003, then-19-year-old Joshua Cooke cranked the throbbing tune on his headphones, walked out of his bedroom holding a 12-gauge shotgun and killed his parents.” – Washington Post

A more likely explanation: Loughner is so mentally ill that a judge has deemed him unfit to stand trial.

Name: Kyle Smith

Alleged crime: Killed his his grandparents, David and Rose Garrick, and then set their Midwest City, Okla. house on fire

Date of incident: March 23, 2011

Heavy metal gets fingered: “Inside the walls of the burned home, investigators seized a demonic drawing, a heavy metal CD with a pentagram, along with a hatchet, a samurai sword, a dagger, knives and two gas cans.” – KFOR.com

A more likely explanation: When he pleaded guilty to the crimes in August, Smith told the court he’s being treated for bipolar disorder.

Name: Adam Yahiye Gadahn

Alleged crime: He’s a senior operative in Al-Qaeda, where his chums call him “Azzam the American.”

Date of incident: Gadahn began threatening terrorist attacks on America in 2004.

Heavy metal gets fingered: “As a teenager in Santa Ana, he formed a death metal band called Aphasia. In the early to mid-’90s, he also was a contributing writer to a local Southern California metal zine called Xenocide where he interviewed bands, wrote album reviews and drew artwork.” – The Gauntlet

A more likely explanation: Home-schooled and raised a Christian, Gadahn found fundamentalists “apocalyptic” and “paranoid;” the faith left him feeling “empty.”

Name: Jeffery Todd Guy

Alleged crime: Shot and killed Scott Maxson at Maxson’s home in Billings, Mont.

Date of incident: March 20, 2011

Heavy metal gets fingered: “Guy ‘prominently displayed idols and literature on (Satanism)’ in his home … (Public Defender Christopher) Abbott argued that the items in Guy’s home were associated with Guy’s interest in rock music commonly known as ‘death metal,’ which often uses images of Satan and the occult.” — Billings Gazette

A more likely explanation: During questioning, Guy apparently told police he has “severe mental issues” and blacked out during the crime.

Name: Morne Harmse

Alleged crime: Used a “samurai sword” to kill Jacques Pretorius and attack other classmates and workers at Nic Diederichs Technical High School in Krugersdorp West, South Africa.

Date of incident: Aug. 17, 2008

Heavy metal gets fingered: “‘He came here camouflaged as the guy from Slipknot,’ (Pierre) Eksteen (who directs a South African student support network) told the Times (in South Africa). ‘We know the wrong kind of music and drugs have bad effects. Young people need to be informed of the effects of bad Satanic music.'” – The Guardian (UK)

A more likely explanation: Before the incident, Harmse and friends discussed the ways they would carry out a school massacre. Because totally rational people do that.

Name: Timothy Parlane

Alleged crime: Attacked rival Matthew Hall with two knives, killing him in his Wellington, New Zealand, flat.

Date of incident: Feb. 15, 2011

Heavy metal gets fingered: “A death-metal band member who confessed to the bloodthirsty knife murder of another metaller was a gentle person, his family says – despite his aggressive stage persona.” — The New Zealand Herald

A more likely explanation: Parlane was so suicidal that he stepped in front of a train after confessing his crime to police in early March.

Name: Travis Martel

Alleged crime: Stabbed his girlfriend, Sarah Nicole Rae, to death in his bed in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Date of incident: Aug. 3, 2008

Heavy metal gets fingered: “A deleted video file discovered on Martel’s cellphone showed her lying on a bed as he slowly focused on the spreading red stab wound on her chest. With heavy-metal music blaring in the background, a voice can be heard muttering from behind the camera of the Sony Ericsson flip phone: ‘Good that I said I love you … This sucks. I’ll be there soon with you, baby girl.'” — CBC News

A more likely explanation: Though he told prosecutors the stabbing was an accident, Martel opted to video Rae’s death rather than calling 911. Sensible, right?

Name: Protected by authorities

Alleged crime: Killed his father and seriously injured his mother with a kitchen knife at home, south of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK.

Date of incident: March 25, 2008

Heavy metal gets fingered: “In the years before the attack the boy had shown an increased interest in death, Satan, the afterlife and the heavy metal band Slipknot.” — The Telegraph (Australia)

A more likely explanation: A judge in the case said the teen experienced “delusions and disordered patterns of thought, sourced from his underlying psychotic condition.”

 

You have a bunch of psychotic killers here who listened to metal. 1 is a Al-Queda member for gods sake, and this “ban metal” idiot wants to believe metal made him do his crime, and not being part of a terrorist cell? 1 Was inspired by what they incorrectly call “Death Metal”, which is what they name Satanic extreme metal. They probably mean BLACK METAL!, because 90% of Death Metal is NOT Satanic.  Slipknot, Drowning Pool, some black metal band, a Death metal written or peformed by the Murderer, Slipknot again and some other misc. metal band are named. Notice a pattern? Fake ‘NU-METAL’ such as slipknot and Drowning Pool, which is really alternative, is 90% of the bands scapegoated. The others are black metal and death metal bands the murderers were in.  Not once has a power metal, Thrash Metal, Melodic Death Metal, Folk Metal, Prog Metal or Doom Metal band been named in a major case. It’s only POPULAR  fake metal, and Indie Metal Bands of killers, which are blamed….. Sounds more likely these people were mentally ill, terrorists or psychopaths. One even was Bipolar, another blacked out during the crime. The idiot “Ban Metal” would ignore this obvious evidence to say Metal was to blame and he is an idiot for bringing this up. Metal does not cause crime!

 

I personally, HATE Satanic themes in bands lyrics. Not because it’s evil. I’m an atheist so that doesn’t matter to me. It’s the whole “Spread evil religious attacking lyrics to cause a controversy” angle that gets me. Every one of the above Satanic Bands do this in one shape or other, Especially  the non-black metal ones. For years idiots like the person who made the Ban Metal Page on facebook have been whining about 100% of metal being satanic, 100% of metal fans and bands being part of a satanic cult that molests children and similar. Bands like Slayer are taking advantage of this stereotype to sell records. I think more bands should DITCH the satanic image to get these groups to listen when people like me say “WERE NOT SATANIC!”. 

 

People like this piss me off. It’s always the Westboro Baptist Church types that attack metal, Notice that? The guy Singles out Black Metal and Slayer like Satanic Bands to attack ALL the music I listed above that is NOT satanic. He insults metalheads right and left, he calls us names, he’s an IDIOT.

He calls metal “metal filth”, he calls us “Heathens” and the bands that too. He’s obviously a religious zealot. I cannot stand these people. What he is doing could be considered hate speech. More on that later.



I suggest people who want to spread this educational message that He’s an idiot use this template I set up above to list metal bands by Lyrical theme to prove him wrong. If possible…I won’t because people like this are People I like to avoid because they are Religious Zealot Assholes.  But I don’t mind and actually encourage the following. Post the following text as comments on his page to debunk his claims.
