An editorial piece is on the way later this week on Metalunderground dealing with Christian musicians playing black metal, which is a style infamous for its use of Satanic and anti-Christian lyrics. The editorial will be a follow up to our Unearthing the Metal Underground column that looked at three “unblack” metal bands.
To get a better perspective on the subject, I talked with members from both Christian unblack bands and bands that take an anti-religious stance. Prior to the release of the editorial, the responses I received from each band will be posted online so readers can hear both sides of the argument and make up their own minds on the issue.
The next musician we’ll hear from is solo artist Fire from Polish unblack metal band Elgibbor. You can also check out our previously posted interviews with unblack metal act Winter’s Dawn, as well as Frames, Throne of Malediction, and Dehumanation on the anti-religious side.
