Satanic messages are OKAY in rock n roll

Many awesome rock bands have employed satanic or otherwise unchristian themes, apparel and lyrics in their performance and merchandise. I submit this is okay for a christian to listen to this material for the following reasons.

1. It is clearly labeled, unlike the celebration and camouflaging of absolute vice with rainbows.
2. It acknowledges Christ and God's reality.
3. It carries an explicit warning. Along this path lies skulls, burning, darkness.

For your understanding, here is a song about witchcraft by Merciful Fate

It depends on if it's just for shock value or if it's legitimately satanic. But even if it's just for shock value it is super boring nowadays. Christianity is rebellious in 2021.1612722160391.jpgsw.jpg

Like any other dangerous substance, it must be taken in moderation.

Same goes for any other form of modern entertainment - it's all satanism.

Also: be sure to watch a few minutes of any Biblical film you can get your hands on each day to keep you soul clean. Tubitv is an an excellent source for this, and it's free.

Carry a copy of the New Testament with you at all times to maintain a state of cleanliness, equilibrium, and peace in your mind.

Being a big heavy metal fan, I agree with the OP. A lot of the most famous early black metal bands (and by far the best) like Burzum and Darkthrone never really believed in or worshipped satan in the first place. They were anti-Christian, and they used satanic imagery in a rebellious way, which was rebellious back then, unlike now. A lot of them grew out of it.

Satan and satanic themes aren't even really as prevalent in metal as one would think. Like the above poster said, there's plenty of metal that presents good and sometimes outright positive messages.
A lot of metal is about overcoming your fears and facing up to reality like a man. Songs like those keep me going through the hard times.

The fact you would use said imagery in a band that intends to represent itself as a societal outcast or on the fringe of societal norms acknowledges that such ideals are indeed evil, which is better than the actual evil of today, that see's no issue with such imagery and actively celebrates it as moral good.

Very well put. I wanted to say something like that, but couldn't find the words.

A lot of heavy metal bands are full of guys who want to separate themselves from the moral decay of society. Back in the 80's when these bands were all getting started, they looked around them and saw the hypocrisy of the evangelicals and all of the people who presented themselves as morally good, and wanted no part of it. It appeared to them that the only way to stand apart was to become the "evil" that those people were preaching against. It was youthful rebellion for most of them.

I like Marilyn Manson.

listen to his song โ€œLong Hard Road Out of Hellโ€ and tell me he doesnโ€™t know his whole schtick is a show and somewhere deep down heโ€™s a decent man

Any presentation of Satanism as masculine and edgy is a misrepresentation meant to pull in people looking for alternatives to modernity....and modernity is satanic. Heavy metal masculine satanism is basically the most flagrant example of a false opposition counter culture. Listen to whatever you want, I dont really do metal anymore but my play list isnโ€™t the most wholesome one on earth.

Just donโ€™t forget ever that at its core satanism is gay, it actually is about gay butt sex, feminism, worshipping Jews and niggers, crass consumerism, everything you hate about the modern world that brought you to Daily Stormer is something satan approves of. If you find yourself singing along with lyrics about how mighty Satan is just remember that you are singing about the god of Bill Gates and Epstein not some bad ass antihero like in paradise lost. Miltonโ€™s satan is fiction, the real one is much gayer, less interesting and more hatable.
