These themes will probably not be stated in so many words, but take a look at the innovators. Slayer, Black Sabbath, Morbid Angel, Deicide, and almost all of black metal are good starting points. Also, look at the overall attitude of the music. It's not individualistic in the frivolous sense of mainstream rock, nor is it democratic. It believes in an overriding truth which may be individually derived but isn't individualism - pathological focus on the individual's desires.
