Red Metal Anonymous Comrade 05/22/2020 (Fri) 22:44:58 No. 9863
As an avid listener of metal, something that frustrates me is the prevalence of chuds and reactionaries in metal (especially black metal). The visibility of guys like Varg and Famine of Peste Noire infamy has colored the public perception of extreme metal as being the domain of edgelord fascists. What are some metal groups that could be said to be socialist, anarchist, or leftist in some manner? To start things off, I'd highly recommend the Panopticon album "Kentucky," which is a BM album about the state's history with labor organizing among coal miners, as well as the coal industry's destruction of the state's natural beauty. It's not a perfect album by any means but the way it mixes BM with bluegrass is cool, plus it has an incredibly redpilled message. https://youtu.be/gSObRNcPAv8 https://youtu.be/2zwxEKmoVD4
There exists lefty music threads and other music threads, delete this one and stop being a fag by making new OPs for no reason

>>9893 also here are some kinda RABM comps that are worth checking out: Riffs for Reproductive Justice >inb4 some fags complains about the name and message of this album, I don't care. Includes some noise, hardcore, and ambient tracks. My favorite is probably the Violet Cold song, maybe the cover of Nazi Punks Fuck Off. https://blackflagsoverbrooklyn.bandcamp.com/releases Russian Anarchist Black Metal >some sludge, doom, and hardcore bands mixed in. My favorite song is the Nimrud one. https://imhotape.bandcamp.com/album/russian-anarchist-black-metal Cosmic Collective: A Choir For the Dispossessed >mostly black metal. My favorite song is DEFINITELY the Mystras one. https://rednebula.bandcamp.com/album/cosmic-collective-a-choir-for-the-dispossesed Noise for Standing Rock >black metal and hardcore. Kinda mediocre, but the scene is fucking tiny anyways. The Zetkin song is pretty cool. https://thedarkskiesaboveus.bandcamp.com/ Crushing Intolerance Volumes 1-5 >series of mostly RABM comps. Organized by the guy from Deafest IIRC. https://blackmetalalliance.bandcamp.com/music
>>9893 >>9894 Nice one!
>>9863 >>9893 >>9894 I don't really like the sound black metal that much, but I'm glad this exists. Why is there no radical leftist speed metal or something like that?
>>9940 Most metal really doesn't have an explicit political agenda, it's mostly escapism. There was a phase in the late 80s when thrash bands started to introduce more grounded themes (mostly cold war related, some ecologism too), but it was more of an identity crisis than a real movement. Punk lends itself better to sloganeering, anyway. In fact, most political themes found their to metal through hardcore punk.

>>9893 Great lists so far. Pretty sure Havukruunu and Summoning have made statements that push them left of center at the least. Convulsing also did a thing against fascism but I can't really recall what he said. Havukruunu (Moonsorrow-esque black/folk, closer to them than Agalloch but in the same wheelhouse): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lz3f09fLK3w Summoning (classic): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1vCaXXuUwyk Convulsing (murky black/death): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Jp63DaGg0aA
