Not to mention that so many Americans are Catholics and Christians. There's no hope for black metal on this soil.

Then again, most black metal bands in America fail because they all try the same bull****, and copycat the second wave.

Most american black metal bands either aren't full on black metal(like industrial black metal etc) or suck...

its hard to make it in black metal in america because thats all people play over here and it get tiresome atleast in New Mexico for some reason its really big with the mexicans here.

Not true. There are some good US BM bands such as Xasthur, Pantheon and Judas Iscariot.

You aren't going to "make it big" in an extreme metal band, period. Region doesn't matter.
