Sonic Youth Frontman: 'Black Metal Is Music Made By P-ssies of the Lowest Order'
Former Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore shared a few not-too-flattering comments about black metal, calling it "music made by p-ssies of the lowest order."

Oddly enough, the musician had recently joined black metal act Twilight as a guest guitarist, so his comments should probably be taken with a grain of salt.

"Black Metal is music made by p-ssies of the lowest order, and we felt it was necessary to investigate this aberrant anti-music behavior," he noted (via Metal Injection). "We feel like the sound and attitude of black metal is a loss of self, life, light and desire in a way where it becomes so negative that a whole new bliss arrives where we become super pussy."

In related news, Moore has announced his new solo album "The Best Day." Recorded with Debbie Googe of My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and Chrome Hoof guitarist James Sedwards, the record is set for an October 21 release via Matador. Details here.
