FTR #222 Fascism and the Black Metal Music Scene, Part II

Lis­ten:
MP3 One Seg­ment [1]

Updat­ing dis­cus­sion from FTR-211, this pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of Nation­al Alliance leader William Pierce’s acqui­si­tion of Resis­tance Records (a white pow­er music label.) (Pierce is the head of the Nation­al Alliance, arguably the most impor­tant domes­tic Nazi group.)

Plan­ning to spe­cial­ize in black met­al music (among oth­er gen­res), Pierce and his asso­ciates are recruit­ing main­stream musi­cians to record racist and Nazi music under pseu­do­nyms.

The broad­cast high­lights the for­ma­tion of Resis­tance Records (pri­or to acqui­si­tion by Pierce) by George Bun­di (a.k.a. Eric Hawthorne.) Stem­ming from the World Church of the Cre­ator (anoth­er domes­tic fas­cist group), Hawthorne and Resis­tance have been cel­e­brat­ed by the Church of Satan. (Domes­tic fas­cists Boyd Rice and Michael Moyni­han are both mem­bers of the Church of Satan and influ­en­tial in the black met­al milieu.)

A mem­ber of the Church of the Cre­ator (Ben Smith) mur­dered sev­er­al peo­ple in the Mid­west (see FTR-168.) The pro­gram high­lights Moyni­han’s sup­port for Amer­i­can Nazi James Mason and his espousal of “lone wolf” racist killers like Smith. Mason has been fea­tured on the racist tele­vi­sion show of Tom Met­zger, whose orga­ni­za­tion has been suc­cess­ful­ly sued by the South­ern Pover­ty Law Cen­ter. Anoth­er of Moyni­han’s icons (and posthu­mous bene­fac­tor of Moyni­han’s pub­lish­ing out­fit) is SS offi­cial Karl Willigut.

The pro­gram reviews Moyni­han’s plans to pub­lish work by fascist/occultist Julius Evola (anoth­er advo­cate of fas­cist vio­lence as a “spir­i­tu­al” act). Moyni­han is also plan­ning to pub­lish music by the Iron Guard, a Roman­ian fas­cist group allied with Hitler (see FTR-221.) (Endorsed by Evola, the Iron Guard liaised with Otto von Bolschwing. Von Bolschwing was a key SS man who worked for the CIA after the war.)

The broad­cast sets forth the Abraxas Foun­da­tion’s espousal of the Iron Guard’s phi­los­o­phy of “long live death.” (Record­ed on 4/9/2000.)
