FTR #211 Fascism and the Black Metal Music Scene

MP3 Side 1 | Side 2

This broad­cast details the grow­ing fas­cist influ­ence with­in the “black met­al” music genre.

A hard-core, icon­o­clas­tic, pagan-influ­enced form of rock music, black met­als employs the lex­i­con and iconog­ra­phy of fas­cism and Nazism as a vehi­cle for shock­ing the estab­lish­ment. With­in the black met­al milieu is a grow­ing fas­cist, Nazi and satan­ic ele­ment that is con­scious­ly attempt­ing to manip­u­late the genre in order to win alien­at­ed youth over to the fas­cist cause.

Begin­ning with dis­cus­sion of a recent book about the sub­ject, the pro­gram details the explic­it fas­cist, Nazi and satan­ic con­nec­tions of some of the lead­ing fig­ures involved with the black met­al scene. The pro­gram details the occult and fas­cist con­nec­tions of fig­ures like Boyd Rice. Michael Moyni­han and oth­ers. (As repeat­ed­ly not­ed in the pro­gram, the black met­al scene is not fas­cist. Ele­ments with­in it are.) It should be not­ed that fas­cism and Nazism have (in the past) uti­lized mar­gin­al and alien­at­ed ele­ments of soci­ety as street sol­diers.

As was the case with the Strasserite wing of the NSDAP (the Ger­man Nazi par­ty under Hitler), these ele­ments are fre­quent­ly liq­ui­dat­ed after they have served their pur­pose. It should be not­ed that William Pierce (the head of the Nation­al Alliance, the most impor­tant Amer­i­can Nazi orga­ni­za­tion) has pur­chased Resis­tance Records, a Nazi-skin­head music com­pa­ny.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Boyd Rice’s back­ground in the Amer­i­can Front (a domes­tic Nazi orga­ni­za­tion); Rice’s sta­tus as a mem­ber of the Coun­cil of Nine (the gov­ern­ing body of the Church of Satan); Rice’s ivolve­ment with the Abraxas Foun­da­tion (an indus­tri­al music milieu); the involve­ment of Fer­al House pub­lish­ing guru Adam Par­frey with Abraxas; Par­frey’s close friend­ship with Boyd Rice; Par­frey’s close asso­ci­a­tion with Michael Moyni­han; Par­frey’s asso­ci­a­tion with Nazi, Holo­caust-denier and Lib­er­ty Lob­by asso­ciate Kei­th Stime­ly; Moyni­han’s explic­it­ly satan­ic ori­en­ta­tion; an evi­den­tiary trib­u­tary con­nect­ing Moyni­han to the milieu of the neo-Nazi ter­ror­ist group the Order (inspired by The Turn­er Diaries, authored by William Pierce); the Abraxas Foun­da­tion’s embrace of Charles Man­son; Moyni­han’s fas­cist activism; Moyni­han’s Holo­caust revi­sion­ism; the asso­ci­a­tion between the Lib­er­ty Lob­by and Resis­tance Records; the involve­ment of for­mer Rea­gan White House Staffer Todd Blod­gett in the Lib­er­ty Lob­by’s financ­ing of Resis­tance Records; William Pierce’s stat­ed inten­tion to use Resis­tance Records to mar­ket black met­al music; the Scan­di­na­vian black met­al scene; the church burn­ings and oth­er vio­lence per­pe­trat­ed by Scan­di­na­vian black met­al activists; the Odin­ist and Satan­ic ori­en­ta­tion of some black met­al activists; the fas­cist and occult activism of New Zealand pub­lish­er Ker­ry Bolton (the pub­lish­er of, among oth­er zines, Nexus).
