Top 10 Reasons Why People Think Heavy Metal Is SatanicYou know what really pisses me off? I am so sick and tired of ignorant people going around telling other people that Heavy Metal is satanic. It's not! It's normal music just like Pop, Rap, and Country. I mean seriously. What's wrong with you genre hating asss? You can Dislike Metal All You want but don't go Around saying that Metal is Satanic and requires no talent Whatsoever because it's not fact. It's not ' fact! I listen to all kinds of music but I don't view all of it as satanic. This is a stupid, stupid rumor that needs to die now. And that's why I'm counting down the top 10 reasons why people think that Metal is satanic.
The Top Ten
Dio: "It's NOT the devil's sign like we're here with the devil. It's an Italian thing I got from my Grandmother called the "Malocchio". It's to ward off the Evil Eye or to give the Evil Eye, depending on which way you do it. I doubt very much if I would be the first one who ever did that. I used it so much and all the time and it had become my trademark until the Britney Spears audience decided to do it as well." - Metal_Treasure
Look at the cover of The Beatles' Yellow Submarine album (1969) - John Lennon's hand is making the sign above Paul McCartney's head! And it was before metal... - Metal_Treasure
The horns were used by Dio's mother to ward off evil, and it just became adopted into the culture. - Metalhead1997
Yeah, but the so called screamo isn't a metal subgenre, it's a punk subgenre. - Metal_Treasure
Okay I see your point but here's what my friends say, "u may have seen that when someone is possesed by a demon or an evil spirit, he talks in a deep growling voice and the heavy metal singers are also imitating that deep voice which is actually the voice of satan". what would you like to say to them? Plus I also listen to heavy metal and I can do fry screams and growls very well but I never felt satanic or possesed, it doesn't affects my idiosyncrasy so what's the point of this dilema?
You scream when you're afraid, right? - Metalhead1997
Don't judge a book by its cover, right? So, why are you judging an album by the artwork when you know nothing about the band or what it sounds like? - Metalhead1997
This is exactly why my parents think heavy metal is Satanic, just because of the artwork, they think it is pictures of the devil. But the artwork has 0% effect on me. And they think it is bad for my brain when it is better for my brain than all that pop and rap garbage and crunkcore.
What noises? - Metalhead1997
Please...people thought KISS was satanic. - Metalhead1997
Black Veil Brides.. I don't know
- Judas Priest were named after Bob Dylan's song "The Ballad Of Frankie Lee And Judas Priest".
- Black Veil Brides aren't a metal band according to Encyclopaedia Metallum. I agree they aren't metal. - Metal_Treasure
It usually applies for metal. Not heavy metal. Heavy metal and metal is pretty difference. Heavy metal USUALLY doesn't use growling.
Anyway, I just stay out of these things. The metal bands I listen aren't accused of satanic. - zxm
Mosh pits are just really metal's equivalent of roughhousing. - Metalhead1997
So? Why does that matter? - Metalhead1997
