Question about metal as a multiculture

Question about metal as a multiculture

If metal is rooted in ancient European culture,then how could it be established as a multiculture?

This is a question I'd like to ask Conservationist or other the leaders of this forum.

Well for starters, "European" is a very wide group. Finns and Spaniards have next to nothing in common but are both European.

But what about Chinese or Koreans?

Death metal can be appreciated by a diverse group of species.

Sorry sir,appreciate is one thing,but values and goals can be shared among specific people,that is to say culture is another.

Attempt to answer the question, which I think is an interesting one.

-From a genealogical point of view, metal as an art form is rooted in Europe.
-Content-wise, it has its obvious precursors in Antiquity and Romanticism.
-But in this regard, the typical warlike spirit of metal is an atavism, whose essence is probably found in any societies' cultural expression as well- at some point in time.
-Present day, the cultural relevance of metal probably extends to wherever society decayed to the point of self-destruction, a tendency to which metal is a reaction.

Quote
Indeed, in a pluralistic society I think elective cultures such as those that surround styles of music like heavy metal are, if anything, more legitimate than other forms.
They show our capacity to build our cultural frameworks out of the things that matter most to us rather than simply accept what has been foreordained as having value.
Article

So i'd say metal is not an 'established multiculture', but an elective culture (/second nature), in which participation isn't restricted by geography/ethnicity beforehand.

Few here would have been able to answer the question as well as you E!
