It seems to me that most most metal bands identify with anti-industrialist ideology. Which leads me to wonder, why should metal bands rely on things like electricity in order to fulfill their artistic intentions? Is it just used simply because it is currently:P available? I don't think that a modern convenience should be considered a necessity for a movement against it. Would there be anything for metal to gain by relinquishing the use of electricity?

What's more simple, getting a guitar and an amp or getting a full orchestra ?

When you listen to metal and want to play metal, generally, what happen ?

If you can answer those two question, you'll have 90% of your answer.

The other 10% is that electricity isn't bad at all. In fact, they're is no good or band. Metal point at some of the flaws of modern society. Industrial society and electrity are two very different thing.

If you were really serious about these issues, and owned your own home you could make use of solar, wind, and hydro power to give you electricity without any reliance on fossil fuels. If you're still on the grid the power companies have to pay you for the extra power you generate, too.
