From someone who should know better:
Especially in metal music, I find that a lot of people can be very closed-minded – Derrick Green @ Sepultura
Another term for closed-minded: having made a decision. Knowing what one likes. Clear and goal-oriented.
People like to use the “you’re just closed-minded” as a way to force you to like whatever it is they are doing.
The fact is that even an open minded becomes closed at some point, once it has made its decision.
Otherwise, it is capable of nothing and sits in perfect suspense, making no decisions — a rape target for miles around.
Derrick Green should know better. He should be, how shall we say, “open-minded” about this issue.

Wrong. Closed-minded means insularity and tunnel-vision.
BTW the guy who shot up Oslo is an anus fag, enjoy having your site taken down by the FBI, queers.
I doubt the straw man you set up totally describes Derrick, or anyone, really. Metal does have a lot of keyboard warriors who are more concerned with “keeping up appearances” (i.e. staying true, raw, whatever) than substance, and so he generalized that attitude as “closed-minded”. Whoopdy-doo.
Seems like a lot of people are obsessed with hating ANUS these days. It’s almost like they are afraid of the possibility of this poster’s ability to see into their hollow souls.
Who “hated” this site by posting a critical comment? “Hollow souls”? lol. Wait til you graduate high school, son.
Internet toughguy alert^^^
The fact that some people are apparently coming to this blog regularly, and every time posting something bitter and insulting says something, doesn’t it?
Do they think they’re changing anyone’s minds? Are they just blowing off steam? Why is that steam built up in the first place?
Internet tough guy? Where? You’re really reaching. ;)
I know because when I graduated from high school my goal was to become a woman. I had made my decision and I was not going to let any close minded person tell me I couldn’t be a woman. So I had set my mind for a sex change. I have never regreted my decision. I liked sucking cock when I was a man and I like it now even more. Besides I also love Mastodon and Boris, great music for people like me!
I saw a dead baby in the gutter today.
Was it your mom’s and mine?
I saw the dead baby join Deathspell Omega. Maybe they’ll sound a little more like dead horse now.
Such an ironically mechanical blog post. The writer states that the pc “open-minded” crew are themselves closed-minded, then most of the replies inadvertently prove it.
ROOTS, BLOODY ROOTS
“It’s almost like they are afraid of the possibility of this poster’s ability to see into their hollow souls.”
Why should he know better? He fronted ska/rock bands and joined Sepultura in 1997. Does ANUS endorse Soulfly and later Sepultura? Another great example of the hacks here trying to twist things their way. Personally I’d take Soulfly over absolutely anything Sepultura did in the ’80s.
Also, way to completely take the guy’s message out of context and opportunistically use it to pitch your own trite, stupid and ultimately wrong message that we’ve already read a million times.
Here’s the full quote:
Green: For sure, and the new style of music, people are very critical. Especially in metal music, I find that a lot of people can be very closed-minded — they want to listen to metal and nothing else, but I’m not like that. I like doing metal music and having a heavy style, but I don’t like to put myself in such a box and be trapped in it, because I’m not like that. I like to do different style of music but I think there’s always room for evolution in the music. I love the old classic bands from the past but I like the new bands a lot too and I’m grateful they’re out there exploring and experimenting.”
People like to use the “you just listen to poppy/saccharine/hipster and non-elite metal” as a way to force you to like whatever it is they are doing.
You just need to quit pretending you’re not into sucking dick bro. Please, just accept you wish you had a vagina instead of that small thingy you despise. Love Jesus, he saves.
ANUS + followers = FAGGOTS, as evinced by that nut from Norway.
FUCK YOU MULTICULTURALISM, YOU STOLE MY HORSE AND RAPED MY WIFE
@ANUS IS GAY
hey kid, wanna make ten bucks??
LOL YAY GO NEGRU VODA
Dunno man, it works both ways. Someone could have been saying “I hate classical music it’s shit give me some blast beats”, which is not only close minded but stupid.
Baby u mad? Don’t be I got what u need hangin stiff right between my sexy manly legs! Lemme cumm in ur face baby, u know u wannit!
"open-minded" has multiple meanings. it could mean "perceptive" or "tractable". i believe the former is fundamental in the anus ideology; to be sensitive but not pliant
