Well at least the other members of the band have condemned him. If you read the article, they say John is not Agolloch, so it makes me feel a little better about it, but still really upsetting.

fantastic music, but John Haughm is a Nazi: https://www.metalsucks.net/2019/02/28/former-members-of-agalloch-condemn-john-haughm-over-anti-semitic-comment-pillorian-guitarist-and-drummer-quit-band/

I use reverse osmosis, it's the only thing that can remove certain salts like sulfides. When I am out hiking I use the Sawyer filter, which is good for a long time. You can boil if you are just worried about bacteria and parasites, but if you are worried about other contaminates, like lead, or salts, I would recommend nothing less efficacious than reverse osmosis.

stoner doom is one of the most problematic sub-genres of metal I would say, with bands like bongzilla and eyehategod constantly flying confederate flags. That's actually become a staple of that genre and I can't look the other way with that shit. I feel like the best you are gonna do with heavy stoner stuff is electric wizard, which seems more or less apolitical.

Skagos(https://skagos.bandcamp.com/) is an amazing RABM band. I totally understand why OP is upset though. Agalloch was one of my favorite bands for years until one of the members took to FB to make anti-semitic remarks. I am continuously disappointed when I find out about the politics held by a lot of my favorite metal bands. At least Crust/Dbeat is a pretty safe genre as far as heavy music goes, bands like Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, Nausea, etc have a lot of dark metal influence and within Doom there are bands like Yob that seem to promote some positive messaging. Death Metal seems even worse than Black Metal, though often bands seem apolitical at first and then subtly introduce hateful imagery and claim artistic license to do so. It gets tolerated way too much for the sake of music we like and don't want to think too much about. I stick to bands that don't maintain racist pedagogy or propaganda at this point. It's crucial to promote music with messages that we agree with over hateful artists. I think Amerikkka has shown what happens when you let that shit slide for a decade or two. It seeps out of artistic expression and into the mainstream collective consciousness. Now open racism is further justified by these pieces of art that serve as a monument to the ideologies they represent. It's not too much of a burden to find very talented musicians that don't ascribe to hateful ideologies, so just do that. In addition to skagos, check out iskra, a cloud forest, contravene, sorgsvart, martyrdod, ash borer, dodsangel, gulag, I'm sure others can expand on this.

A lot are, but if you find a cotton or hemp one, this works, otherwise, I just use old jeans to make charcloth. I used a flag in this video for the imagery, but most I just use what I have laying around.

Personally I've never been able to make it work without feeling like I was taking a lot of risks. Would love to gain some insight into how you make it work if its possible to do so without compromising yourself. I would be reluctant to give away any methods that work or 0-days, etc, given it's your livelihood, but I think a lot of us here would love to be pointed towards resources to learn those skill.s

Where do I sign up for felony charges? If you are walking out with $1500 and you need to double your profits that seems really sketchy. Not trying to be a dick, but this has entrapment written all over it.
