Absolutely excellent article. This articulates ideas I've had glimpses of over the years as a metal fan in general. Metal has always been an outsider genre, even at it's peak in Metallica or Ozzy, and it's that being away from the spotlight that allows for bad shit to fester within the scene. It's so frustrating to hear the "oh he killed someone? Well of course he listened to Barzum" argument come up. Ffs I've heard Barzum, am I slated now to burn churches?
