Axl Rosenberg, the founder of social justice warrior metalcore website MetalSucks, called blackened glam metal band Destroyer 666 racist over frontman K.K. Warslut’s altercation with masked antifacist thugs at a Danish festival. Earlier Rosenberg called Todd Jones from sludgecore band Nails a “scene bully” for titling their new album You Will Never Be One of Us, which he took as directed against social justice warrior internet agitators like himself.
Axl Rosenberg is summoning an internet lynch mob as the hipster, social justice warrior advertising revenue his site and the associated Blastbeat Network depend upon is drying up. The metalcore and rehashed speed metal fads his website thrived upon are over similar to death ‘n’ roll and Gothenburg pop metal. The kids who liked Slaughter of the Soul mixed with emotional hardcore grew up, grew out of metalcore, and now seem to have moved onto Left Hand Path, with its easy-to-grasp, straightforward rock-structured, crusty songs. The beer metal/ hard rock hybrid buffoonery of bands like Destroyer 666 and Nails represents a threat to to Rosenberg’s bottom-line that buys the double IPAs filling out his waistline. He views any pop metal band that doesn’t share his leftist, multicultural worldviews as a threat to the Blastbeat Network’s delusional fantasy of pseudo-metal as social commune for non-conformist leeches. Scapegoating moderately successful hard rock bands is the how this thirty-five-year old man with bigger tits than my last ex-girlfriend expects to maintain his sexual access to overweight, hipster twenty-four year olds who identify as “queer”. MetalSucks, Decibel, and the Blastbeat Network foster hipster chimpanzee communism.
