Why did you bother responding to that post instead of all the songs and everyone's reasons for liking the music?

And Sanitarium has the best post because Focus is amazing. Arcane Sun and Elvenefris are also pretty positive/beautiful albums lyrically.

I'm confused
Confused
Don't wanna be confused

Don't even feel a thing
Strong in th'arm but thick in th'head

But it doesn't matter 'cause I live
On negative energy

I remember my band covering Metallica's Fade To Black in a gig a month ago. As I was singing, I noticed the crowd (made up of more extreme metal fans) singing back, as if we are all part of something very uplifting despite the negative lyrics of the song. Before I played the riff for the fast section of the song, I raised my fist high and telling them to scream out loud and another time before the final riff. It's like letting them release some tension. It was a memorable gig.

Negative lyrics when taken in the right context could be very beneficial. I believe none of us human beings haven't experienced struggle and grief throughout our lives. Metal (regardless of what sub-genre) provided a release for people and reminded them that when they face tribulations and struggles, they are not alone and they don't have to feel hopeless. Artists who go through pain sometimes creates the most beautiful artwork... Turning something bitter into something sweet.

I've faced a lot of downturns in my life and it's Metal that kept me strong through the years.

Sam Dunn is right... "It is either you feel it or you don't... If you don't feel that powerful surge of energy that makes your hair stand at the back of your hair... You might not get it"

Is that a Lou Reed lyric or something?

most metal lyrics only appear to be negative when upholding "western ideologies."

"Only death is real" can also be empowering and liberating.

Absolutely this, one of my favorite metal quotes, so simple, yet effective. If only death is real, then surely life must consist of infinite possibilities? Tom Warrior is a visionary, for sure.

I don't know, it sounds like everything in life is pointless and Death is the only thing with meaning.

No, you've got it the wrong way around. It should be

Death is pointless and life is the only true meaning.

Now that makes sense! Death sucks! Life is great!

We never ever will die 'cause Heavy Metal is life
And not eternal hell
We always will believe destroying Satan's league
We take a drink from The Well
