Janelle Antas is an extremely talented writer, but this is not her finest moment. It is very difficult if not impossible to write about black metal if you are not into black metal, and into the right black metal. For example, people who think Ulver is part of the canon are out to lunch.
Her take reminds me of Until the Light Takes Us
however in that it's an outsider who applies known principles of reasoning to the music, and is able to discover some aspects that are important:
Black metal is a musical genre which frequently relies on themes of early European traditions.
Throw out the rest of the article; this is what we came for.
Specifically, anyone who is relying on NSBM to be anything but a shitty rehash of the shitty racist OI/HC bands out there is delusional. NSBM has produced nothing of quality, just like all OI/HC post-Skrewdriver has been of dubious if not outright laughable quality.
If you make music for idiots, you attract idiots... nationalist groups should beware. Throw on the Beethoven, not the Drudkh.
But will such a resurgence spark some kind of revolution for our people? No, probably not. Black metal is too obscure and I find it hard to believe that any kind of music, by itself, is going to start a revolution.
It already did, sweetie. It got Generation X talking about race/culture as (a) connected and (b) a positive thing, in the midst of the greatest onslaught of political correctness yet known (1990s)
Generations Y-Z came later and were immersed in it, which is why very few of them are functional at all, and one reason why they have produced almost no metal (or any art) of note.
