So I was hanging out with a friend of mine who's black and I was playin some metal on my computer (1349 I think). Anyway my friend asked if there were actually any black guys in metal, or more exclusively, a band made up entirely of black members. I can think of a few bands with black members, like God Forbid (who aren't great), RATM (who are hardly black, and not really METAL) and Hirax (But the the vocalist sucks, and he's the only black one). So basically none were great examples. And the only fully black band I could think of were Living Colour who are hair metal if anything.
So does anyone know of any really good examples as far as black guys in metal go? Or possibly a really good band made up of black members?
(By the way I love Living Colour, but my friend was more interested in actual metal-metal)

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Well I think God Forbid is pretty bad ass but have you heard Wicked Wisdom with Jada Pinkett Smith as the vocalist I think their all black theres not really many black bands I can think of.

Other than Suffocation all that comes to mind is Derrick Green from Sepultura. And one of the members of Evile is Black too, the drummer is it?

Wasn't there that death metal band from Africa called the Black Death or something? Let me see if I can find a link.

Isn't there a Canadian BM band with a black member? I distinctly remember visiting their myspace and seeing him in corpsepaint.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Suffocation and Evile are the only one's that come to mind right now. (Btw, to whoever asked, its Evile's bassist, not drummer)

Yeah that's true, Sepultura is a good one. And Evile. Damn, I wonder if there are any black bands though. Probably in local scenes, like the one around here. We have alot of black guys in the metal scene here in DC and VA.
