It's a matter of evolution to me. Musically speaking, some feel restrained by the genre and clinge to the more out-dated elements of Metal, while others remain true to the roots of Metal while still pursuing an evolutionary pathway. Beherit, Burzum, and Summoning are examples of the latter.
As far as Metal as a culture goes, I would say that Hessian people need to apply themselves in other fields, while not over-extending themselves. We already have some very talented Hessian students, but what we need more are people who can do what Beherit, Burzum, and Summoning did with their music, which is stay true to the their Hessian roots while still developing in an evolutionary matter. We need people who can carry the values and ideas of Metal over into their adult lives in a sensible manner. When that happens, we will have more Hessian politicians, academics, professionals, and people of similar positions of power. In short, more personal development and socialization, and less isolation and self-insolation.
