If that piece was spoken manifest, I can somewhat imagine how the voice of narrator would be, hah...

Hypocrisy of the author is quite outstanding. Looking at her "metal recommendations", and mediocre tends to be huge understatement. Even if subject matter of recommended bands would be exact opposite, a lot of those bands wouldn't get praised even among NSBM crowd where standard is pretty low. This is good example when approaching art with "politics first" -angle, how shitty it can get. Even the bands she criticizes, aren't political in a way word is generally understood.

It would be good to see metal journalist who grew up reading Answer Me and Apocalypse Culture, rather than... I don't know.. Cosmopolitan?

That article, see passages quoted above, is pure hysteria. Would be good if she has a meltdown.

Very, very true. There are PLENTY of absolutely awful NSBM bands that, thankfully, don't get any respect. Any actual music where the theme take precedent over the sound is usually garbage. I, for one, welcome any truly hateful left-leaning band that can present itself intelligently and with good musicality.

In Metal, I haven't heard of any such band. Punkwise, Conflict comes to mind immediately. If Black Metal could produce a band like Conflict I'd listen but I doubt very much that would happen. BM's politics, like it or not, usually lean to the right, just as punk usually leans to the left.

BM is at it's best when it is nihilist and anti-humanist in general. Just pure hate and resignation. Not fitting into any political agenda, despite every effort from all sorts of people to fit BM into their agendas, "fighting for a better scene".

Neither have I, but I welcome it. Dystopia maybe might fit, but they are more misanthropic. I have little hope for BM on that angle though.

Punk also used to be against the norm and mean something. Now they are all just preaching to the choir and are mundane at best.

Well-said. Pretty hard to live up to Discharge, in all fairness. They had the whole lyrics = left slogan thing down to a T and nobody really did it better.

There has been several studies about this matter. Recently was listening lecture of couple leftwing academics who did a study based on "does right wing have best parties now". Party - not as political party, but party as having fun.

Several decades ago, right was associated with conservative, lame choir boys, all the strict rules and oppressive moralism. While anything associated with left, offered freedom, good time, great music, sex, drugs and rock'n'roll type of revolution so to say.

While the old moralist and conservative right still exists, there has been drastic move, where formerly good parties of left are now ruined by moralists and dogmatic rules gone so specific, and any violation is approached with such a mob uproar, quite normal man is utterly alienated.

While the two academics had critical analysis of why left fails, they didn't have guts to identify the cause or classify it as problem. They were circulating around the subject constantly, wary of what they could say. Always starting sentences in a style like "we don't mean that there is something wrong with ehmm..  to stand for rights of.. ehmm…  It is important, hmm, but we just observe the side effect what it causes..".  You know, it doesn't matter if you are educated, civilized, good mannered leftist academic, but you know damn well you better not piss off for example twitter feminists and wide variety of contemporary sexual-abominations.  That's about that if you're thinking about career in public politics or scientific study or whatever.

The academic argued the modern right, is the rebellion what current youth as well as big part of society in general seems to need. Reckless middle finger lifted hight, revolt against wide variety of dogmatic rules. Demands of swift response to social problems they deal in their daily lives, while left presents same situation as if it was page cut out of Watchtower magazine. Instead of approving even relevant criticism, they'd act with ways of perhaps authoritarian, but most of all with utmost moralism. Something that was abomination for old left. Contemporary left embraces moralism. That's the biggest change.

I may question is it really "right wing" we're talking about here? Or rather more of semi-nihilists & angry liberals? Of course spectrum of types of people is so huge with conflicting ideas, that it seems quite dull to talk about "left" and "right".

Several anarchists have concluded that what should be division is not left/right, but authoritarian and non-authoritarian.

In Metal, I haven't heard of any such band. Punkwise, Conflict comes to mind immediately. If Black Metal could produce a band like Conflict I'd listen but I doubt very much that would happen. BM's politics, like it or not, usually lean to the right, just as punk usually leans to the left.

To me, division of metal and punk is not so much of left and right, but rather horizontal and vertical. The other is about expansion on one flat level, trying to avoid hierarchies, preferably ripping down anyone going up, where less abled can't follow. Equality über alles, so to say. Other aims higher. Elitist, noble and even arrogant. Acceptance and even glorification of hierarchies - most definitely.

Some years back I visited one Helsinki punk record store, asking for few foreign bands. Guy told me they don't have those. They stock single copy once in a while and basically nobody is interested. This is what most guys associated with punk have told. People go to visit what locally happens (although not necessary watch the bands), and buy random mediocre release of band they know. It's not like they'd be interested in hunting the best and most inspiring hc-punk band out there. While Black Metal crowd, they will gladly skip gig of mediocre band, they will hunt for inspiring release of band who proves itself good. It may be about worshipping the known icons, or it may be esoteric - small and unknown to masses yet personally crucial.

Of course this is broad generalization. Nevertheless, one could observe such traits within "experimental scene" as well.  If two easy examples would be for example group in type of "lets jam some racket, anyone can join, lets give some cdr's to friends" vs "I'd want to create monolithic album that survives decades, stands tall in front of this swamp of useless waste of time". You may  not find blatant left/right, but you could will find certain state of mind and worldview which tends to manifest itself in the way things are done.

That said, cross-over exists. Often one can see strength of both approaches are don't feel necessity to go just one way. In generalization most should see good observations, and if someone would hate the generalization, his leaning is pretty much clear, hah…

Very true. Lots of arrogant elitism in punk and lots of "sound the same or die!" egalitarianism in Black Metal.

Isn't that rather fascist notion than egalitarian? :P

This doesn’t hit me as butthurt so much as it is news of a huge supermarket chain sacking someone who said something alienation to a gigantic portion of their customer base. Capitalism, not PC moral policing.
