Ok, so here's my concern. I'm most likely the only Chinese dude in San Francisco that listen to metal. i got into metal couple years ago when i heard MOP on the radio, the heavy guitar riff just caught me right there and also make me start to learn guitar. and of course, my favorite genre are melodic death metal, mostly bands from euro. like COB, arch enemy..etc.. but lately, i've notice that there's a bunch of neo-nazi bands. i'm just wondering does the whole scene share the same belief? am i a dumbass that listen to music that i'm not suppose to listen to? cause it's weird when i go to a concert, and i'm like the only chinese dude bangin head. tho people that i've met are really really nice. ( saw arch enemy last year at fillmore with nevermore and chimaira, michael amott really rocks )

ah dont kill me. whats neo nazi? are there any really racist metal bands? and it doesnt ****in matter what race u r.
#4
There's racist assholes in every genre. Of course the whole scene doesn't share that view, but racism is definitely still there.
#5
neo-nazi is just someone who believes in the nazi ways, now days, instead of back a while ago, and to the thread starter, DON'T LISTEN TO ANY OF THAT SHIT, a rocker is a rocker, no matter if he's English, Chinese, Russian, or ****ing Martian!!! If anyone gives you shit I'll kick their ass for you, for free.
#6
Yeah racism is def. there...I saw a video on youtube of a pantera concert...and phil was screaming about the south, and southern pride...and then I saw another video where he wasn't drunk..and he was talking about how their music was in no way racially biased...it's amazing what alcohol will do to people...or maybe it was the heroin?
#7
I've met plenty of chinese metal dudes. I wouldn't worry about it. Just think about it this way, only a small percent of white people listen to those bands. So if an equally small amount of chinese people listen to that music and there are a lot less chinese people, then you'll be less likely to run into a chinese person who listens to the same bands.

that was a stupid comment. there are much more chinese people in the world then there are white people. you are thinking in america.

Of course the entire metal scene isn't racist. That's a ridiculous question.

oh no, i definitely don't listen to bands that openly admitted that they are "supreme" or in any neo-nazi organization. but i just need some clarification on the genre itself.

What about it? Yes, there are racist metalheads. I'm entirely sure that there are racists in every possible world demographic. But of course the entire metal community is not racist.

what do you think all those confederate flags are in the south all the time... I'm me sure it could be they are just pround to be metal from the south on their guitars and stuff but lets not forget what the confederates were fighting for in the civil war...this way they can hate and and have a cool looking guitar
#17

#18

I was at that show too! Sick. As for metal being racist, there's some idiots but I don't think that there's a larger ratio of metalheads than other music fans.

I'd love it. There need to be more of guys like you.

And Burzum isn't an example of National Socialist black metal. They've been accused of it, but they have maybe one line pertaining to race in their songs. However, Varg seems like an asshole, so I don't listen to them. However, there are Neo-Nazi black metal bands up there in Norway, and, as a militant anti-racist, I don't like them. I like the style of regular black metal, but a lot of black metal directly attacks Christianity, which wouldn't be too bad, as I'm not that easy to offend, but many black metal musicians want all Christians to be annihilated, so, yeah. However, if a black metal band sings about Norse mythology or agony, count me in.

eh some people consider the confederate flag racist, all depends on your preception, I don't view it as racist because the civil war was more about the south breaking away from the north for other reasons, not as much about slavery as most people think, same with Iron Cross stuff, I wear an iron cross belt buckle, which I could see some people could view as racist (which it really isn't)
but, to the threadstarter, don't worry about race, overcome adversity and show some pride

Arent Iron Maiden bigger in Japan than they are in the States or Euro?


Most metal bands are, as it's still very popular in Japan. Probably because the Japanese only recently started forming their own extreme metal bands.

Half of it is just for shock value, just look at Slayer's "Angel of Death", many people say that song is anti-semetic, but the fact that one of their drummers was Jewish disproves that.

Burzum, or just Varg really, is not a neo-nazi band.

And it's called NSBM/National Socialist Black Metal.

vargs far too liberal for me,sorry,cant really relate to you there....i mean the 30 seconds of synth at the start of the first album are pretty trve,but thats all.
i dont really listen to black metal anymore anyway...it exists purely in my mind now,staying in its purest and trvest form.


...So in answer to your question; Yes. Phil Anselmo and all other metalheads are actually racist. It's really wrong.

I find metal heads to be among the nicest people to hang with at concerts. They mosh hard and sure some people get hurt, but they help you up and the sense of community is great. Well, besides Slayer concerts. But as far as I know, very few metal bands are racist and no metal fans that I know discriminate.

Not true, look at this:

Phil Anselmo is not racist, he's just against the modern black culture.


Lol. He's still a dick.

There are National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM) bands that are for the aryan race and white pride. I've never really heard any brutal death/melodic whatever you wanna call it metal that had racist lyrics.

Once again... Wow... Phil Anselmo is a fucking dick.

Dude, screw what other people think. Just follow your soul, man. If it helps, there are many Asians in metal. Herman Li from Dragonforce and John Myung from Dream Theater come to mind instantly. Both of whom are considered to be exceptional musicians in their own respects.
