While You Hate, We CREATE! Fuck Racism in Metal!

Racism is never a joke…Phil Anselmo, you straight fucking played yourself in the eyes of so many, and CVLT Nation will never support you in any way or form.

I have been an active part of the underground music community since the early 80s, and I have never made the color of my skin an issue until today. In the 35 years that I’ve been going to shows, playing in bands and collecting and appreciating punk and metal music, I have seen musicians and fans of all colors, cultures and genders. When Meghan and I started CVLT Nation, we decided that at its foundation we would ignore all music with a racist and sexist agenda. We weren’t going to get on a soapbox about it, it just wasn’t going to make it on the pages of this webzine. We would get angry in private, and publicly we would erase racism in metal from existence.

But we’re not going to lie about the music and cultures we admire. We post about hip hop, we post about Nina Simone and black biker gangs, and when we can’t stop ourselves we post about police brutality in the black community. And every.single.time. we have to deal with some maggotty racist scum bubbling up to the surface to tell us to stop with our “black propaganda” or to tell us how superior the white race is. We just delete, delete, delete. And move on. Because of two things: 1. Anyone who espouses the belief that the 0.01% of their DNA that determines their external appearance makes them genetically superior to another human being is a fucking fool and astoundingly ignorant; and 2. Because these ignorant cretins could never convince us that we should not listen to this music, love and support this music and above all lose our self-respect and love for each other and our family and friends because of something so insignificant as race. In the past, we’ve been told that if we don’t condone racist ideologies in metal, then we shouldn’t be running this site, because extreme music holds extreme views. In our opinion, racism is not “extreme,” it’s ignorant, dumb and worthless. So to those people, we say “fuck you” and move on.



For anyone who doesn’t already know: CVLT Nation is run by an interracial couple with three awesome biracial kids that we love with all of our hearts. Our 4.5 year old and 2 year old daughters have more metal running through their veins than most of our readers. I doubt even Phil Anselmo can claim that as an infant his favorite music was fast and heavy. When I heard Phil say “White Power,” it hit home, because it meant not only he does not think I should be a part of this community that I’ve dedicated my life to, but also that my children should not exist and I should not be married to my best friend. I know that we have some readers that might agree with his statements, or be apologetic for them, and to those people I say this: it’s your right to read our site, and thanks for the hits and for helping us feed our family, but just know that this site is run by the people you think you HATE, and by people who you think have no right to have a say about this music and this community.

It’s time for us all to take a stand against feeble-minded people like Phil Anselmo and all who think that what he was saying was a joke!



If calling Anselmo out for holding beliefs that show zero respect for us and our family and friends – including musicians whose talent makes Anslemo look like he’s got his thumbs up his ass – makes us Social Justice Warriors, then so be it. I would would rather be that then a racist piece of shit who has ass-backward views and can’t think for themselves. I have family members who were raped and lynched, but even if I didn’t, I couldn’t be silent about this, because if I don’t speak up I might as well be down with Phil. Honestly, I find it ironic that Phil makes money off of reworking blues riffs, but hates the people who created them. It doesn’t get much more ignorant than that.

Much respect to everyone online and in the real world who are brave enough to speak out against racism in Metal. Phil Anselmo’s idiotic actions may have inspired this discussion, but we have to acknowledge that this problem runs deeper than just one person in the industry, and should be addressed more often. To all of our racist, sexist, xenophobic or homophobic readers out there in cyberspace: please unlike us, because we don’t fucking like you! While you hate, we CREATE!

    I support you in everything you have said in this article. I will probably never listen to a Phil Anselmo album again. However, I do have an issue with why you speak up about his. I have read articles on this site were you support artists who have said or sung about much worse… such as supporting child prostitution and pedophilia. Why turn a blind eye to these issues and speak out about racism. Which is worse?

    -209 for my previous comment = 209 beta vaginas who have no place listening to metal due to the fact that they must have everything in life censored so that their fragile feelings don’t get hurt. This is thrash we are dealing with though, and thrashtards have always been the emasculated crybabies of heavy metal.
    PC is censorship, and censorship is most certainly not Kvlt (Cvltnation got it wrong). So if you cuckboys want to whine because something hurt your feelz and you want to pander and brown-nose to non-white demographics because Huffpost or Cosmo magazine told you that its trendy, then go listen to something less offensive and more socially acceptable, like that Top 40 Kidzbop garbage.
    Now go ahead, ye spineless cuckwads, and vote this comment down too. All that does is show me how many posers we have among us. Still don’t think you’re a poser? Remember: Metal is the music of adversary and rebellion. Those who upset the system are always few in number, and people like myself do exactly that. You, who disagree with me, and the few others like me who upset your hivemind mentality, are the system. You are the majority. nearly everyone agrees with you. You echo the propaganda of almost every western government, and that makes you the system. The fact that you listen to metal at all is, therefore, quite redundant.

    “The other day, someone asked me what I think of Kerry King from SLAYER always trashing MACHINE HEAD and me,” Flynn stated. “You want to know what I think? I think the guy’s a jerk. I think the guy’s a lard ass. I think the guy’s eaten so many cheeseburgers lately his brain is starting to clog up, and he can’t think straight anymore. And, I think it’s really hard to get offended when the guy who’s talking trash about you looks like RIGHT SAID FRED with a beard, and wears ass-less leather chaps. I mean, c’mon!? The guy wears ass-less leather chaps!!!? Where I live in San Francisco, that’d be Kerry Queen. Make no mistake about it, I am a huge SLAYER fan. Not a Kerry fan. But hell,.. The way I look at it, I take pleasure in knowing that by doing absolutely nothing, we can be such a source of irritation to one man.”

    Thanks for this. I live in Brazil, 33 years old, listening to metal music since I was a kid, and something that always bothered me was: which one of these guys are racists, neonazi, or something? It kind of tear my heart appart to know that someone like Phil Anselmo, that could be an example of chemical and personal overcoming ofr millions of kids out there, acted like this while drunk.
    PS: Why not make a selection of notorious racists/neonazi in Rock/Metal, so we can be aware of what’s going on ? 😉

    I’ve been an avid reader for three years, and I’ve never left a comment. But I want to now to say that I stand in solidarity with you, Sean, and all anti-racists in the metal/punk/underground communities. I’m glad you spoke to this, and did so loudly. Anyone who thinks racism has a place in metal or punk needs to get out of the scene: all of this culture started as a reaction to mass culture, of which racism is a part. True punks and metal heads know this, and they don’t support fascism and racism in any form. Of course there have been bands in these scenes that have touted racist flags, and the real scene stands up to them and calls them on their bullshit. Anselmo is a tool. Burzum is a tool. NSBM is a bunch of bands who are also tools. Thank you for this. I appreciate it, and have only become a bigger fan of CVLT Nation. If you’re saying that there’s no room in metal for PC, get out of the scene. You have no idea of its history, and we don’t want you here. Go vote for Trump and wear a Polo shirt instead.

    To quote an old hardcore band from the ’80s, Brotherhood: “we’re dedicated to stop your ignorance/ we’ll band together to bring you to your knees/ for your actions, we have no tolerance/ blind hate, prejudice, a disease.”

It’s one thing to let emotions drive your creativity but why taint music with your hate.

    i get confused when people insist that they’re being iconoclasts by taking a stand against supposed “pc fags,” cuz my understanding is that racism is just the norm in this society? it’s business as fuckin usual: police shootings, mass incarceration, deportations, displacement, community divestment etc etc etc. for folks who love to talk about how much they hate, i don’t get why they keeping fighting to uphold these tired moral values.

    Lemme just say my 2 cents. I am a minority at metal shows. I am a big hairy Indian chef. I’m wrong in about 90% of the places I go. But I have never experienced anyone being racists towards me or any other minorities at any show I have been to. But then again I have been lucky like that my whole life. Metal fans are a brotherhood (meant in the most universal sense of the word) where we can all be ourselves and release our demons and hopefully gain some friends. I say all of this because I agree wholeheartedly with Sean, there is no place for racism in our culture. Racism and PC are truly 2 sides of the same bullshit coin. But to say that we need some of that safe space shit and for calling people out for being overt or even covert racists is even more bullshit. This is not a college frat or sorority that is based on inclusion through exclusion. If you love the music, and feel the music, we love you. And because we love you, we will call you out on your shit and make you rethink it.

    It’s funny how people can’t see some things as countercultural symbols. Satanism has an aesthetical conception in music. Satan never seems like an opressive figure, as racism.
    There’s something related with rebellion, be different, follow another path. Racism doesn’t express this, just shows that you are an idiot.

    Doesn’t matter how many vegan faggots you squeeze into a distorted guitar band it still won’t make it metal.

    Taking all the fashion elements and visuals and mixing them with a femenist agenda doesn’t make you anything but a goddamn poser.

    We don’t want or need you here. Take your posing asses back to Hot Topic.

    We can’t wait until all of you fashion rocking shitbags so concerned with judging everything finally offend yourselves the fuck out of our culture.

    You aren’t metal and never will be. You don’t have a sense of humor and the fascism and satanism checks your Ned Flanders asses at the fucking door.

    …no surprise that you are a bunch of fucking posers; cheers to you for “coming out” about it;

    Here’s a bit for the “White pride isn’t racist! If they can have black pride, what’s the difference?” contingent:

    “Black pride” does not mean “black supremacy”. The movement did not come about from black people trying to claim mastery. “Black pride” is a reaction to and a rejection of centuries of being told dark skin makes them inferior, and is a source of shame. “White pride” stands for enforcing and maintaining that tired status quo. “White pride” is born from fear of equality, which means their formerly exclusive privileges now apply to all.

    Further, metal would not exist at all without black musicians. Metal comes from rock and roll, which, in turn, comes from the blues. Black blues musicians were regularly suspected of having made pacts with Satan – which is, indisputably, metal as all fuck – long before Ozzy Osbourne’s parents had even met. Remember when Kristian Vikernes tried to distance himself from influence by black blues musicians? He claimed Burzum’s metal was based on (white) classical, rather than rock/blues, like other metal bands.

    Phil Anselmo has a long history of espousing ignorant views, as well as (in my opinion) making weak and dull music. Possibly, this particular incident was meant as a “joke”. From someone with no previous record of endorsing NS/WP ideas, I’d say let it go as a bad joke. This guy, though, is a fuck. Pantera embraced their reputation as redneck favorites. The “heritage, not hate” campaign was an apologist farce. Look at the “heritage” they were celebrating, after all.

The true Hardcore scene has no respect for racism, and we had zero tolerance, even true skinheads are non racist and would always beat down the few racist boneheads and expel them with force. The Metal scene needs to clean house. Anselmo did the Seig Heil, but he got a “placa” tattoo on his stomach, in curved letters, copying off the Mexicans style lol.

    I agree 100% with this article–I think though, that *in my opinion* it’s not just “biological racism” that is prevalent in metal communities (it’s not always just about that “0.01% of their DNA that determines their external appearance”). In my experience, there’s a “sneakier” (sneakier bc it’s not always professed by ppl who would openly call themselves white supremacists) type of racism which I would call “cultural racism” where extremely ignorant ppl think that bc they’ve misread like two paragraphs of a bad Nietzsche translation or bc they cant think for themselves and will be perpetually holding on tight to Varg’s balls that there are “cultures” that can be quantified as “superior” to others and that there are also ppl who embody these monolithic and often ignorant constructions of culture who are also the agents of some sort of “cultural decay » (9/10 times ppl from Muslim-majority countries bc « Islam is for slaves » or smthg–at least here in Europe~). So these are the ppl who get all hysterical and burst a hemorrhoid if you call them a “white supremacist” bc they think white supremacist = eugenicist or Grand Wizard of the KKK or 15 y/o white-boy in the deeps of midwest america blogging castles and quotes from the eddas and blondes frolicking in fields bc #whiteculture. They also think certain « non-white »/« non-western »/”marginally European”&c ppl get the #bad-ass or #sofuckingmetal certification bc they vaguely remind them of Easterlings or are supposedly inherently « savage » or contributed unintentionally to some sort of cosmic esotericism and quack metaphysics espoused by a metal band. I think it would be interesting in general to look at how racism works in different genres of metal bc I see this “cultural racism” as very much there among black metal fans bc much of black metal depends on a construction of “Judaeo-Christian” (whatever that means) culture as the ~enemy~.

Did I see it in some other site? Was it here and you people deleted it? If so, good for you. It deeply antagonized your decision not to post about sexist agendas. I found that post repulsive and disturbing, in the way it glamorized mysoginy. Same way I feel when there’s promotion of a band or people with racist views. I don’t care what music they make. One has to stand her/his ground. That’s the only way to be.

    “In case you need a brushup on history, white men aren’t oppressed by black people here in America.” You presuming piece of shit. How dare you speak for every person defined as a “white man”. You don’t have a clue whether or not they were oppressed or not because you do not and can not know. Sure, the phrase(s)”white power/white pride” is sophomoric and silly, but only as knuckleheaded and doofusy as “black power/black pride”. Race don’t mean shit and that goes for white, black, green, whatever. And as far as “history” goes, it’s dead and buried everytime someone opens their mouth. So you wanna create? Fucking create and bring in something new instead of rehashing the same old shit.

    I really don’t think Phil is racist in the sense that he hates anyone based on color or race or anything like that. Come on, he grew up in new Orleans. I think he’s just proud of being white. It’s not a crime in itself. Hell, I’m proud of being white, I hope black people are proud of being black and so on. It doesn’t mean that there is hate behind it. I never did and never will judge people based on their ethnicity, race or color. I will, however, judge them upon attitude. And that’s all from me.

      I absolutely understand. But Robs not black. Neither is anybody else in Machine Head. I think the whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. I’m not a racist! But I’ve said the word nigger before. It’s probably not the best word to use when describing Machine Heads crap albums. It’s about intention and purpose. If Phil said the word nigger with the intent of hating someone for being a certain skin color then it was fuckin wrong. But just saying the word nigger doesn’t make you a racists no more than saying the word God makes you a Baptist. I just don’t think that Phil’s intent was to single out and hate someone for being black. But I dunno, maybe he was?

    Its pretty stupid to even have an opinion on this. Anything anyone does now is racist, or homophobic or some other stupid shit. If you like black metal and buy it, you’re probably supporting someone who is egalitarian and therefore racist to some degree. If you support old school death metal and buy it you’re definitely supporting some racists, Obituary opens their set with fucking rebel stomp or whatever and no one cares. You’re all by definition being “bigots” for showing intolerance to Phil’s beliefs which in no way affects any of you. he isn’t going to bring in the 5th reich, and he probably isnt even an activist. keep stupid fucking non music news out of metal.

      http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/all-shall-perish-philip-anselmos-actions-are-a-stain-on-the-legacy-of-pantera/ this kind of perfectly sums up my thoughts on this. I’m not going to lie and say I’m not going to listen to Pantera, Down, or Super Joint Ritual because their lead singer is apparently a racist because that doesn’t change how awesome the artwork that the bands have come together to make. I can’t lie and say that the vocal majority (note, not the actual majority, just the majority of the loud assholes) at metal shows I have been to in the past weren’t racist (Ramos Roman can definitely add some insight here given our trip to mayhem fest where some dude called him by the n word literally on the walk into the place), but I can honestly say that it is definitely becoming a more diverse crowd at the shows I’ve been to. There are more minorities at shows every time I go, and even more people that will actually pipe up and call people out for racist actions which is definitely a plus. I don’t think there’s a place in any aspect of the world for legitimate racism, and if this was anything but a joke like he tried to imply it was (said he was drinking white wine and it was a joke about that, when video shows he was not drinking that, but lemon svedka) then I definitely just lost a lot of respect for one of my favorite vocalists

    Metal is complicated, it contains a wide range of viewpoints that all manage to fit into the genre despite often being contradictory. Too often people wheel out the “metal is white, racist, sexist, homophobic” and point to examples like Burzum etc and yeah it is all of that but it is also progressive, multicultural, environmentalist, feminist and pro lgbti as well and you could equally point to bands like Judas Priest, Napalm Death and Melechesh as examples. Thats precisely why it works and what is actually the best thing about it – theres no overriding viewpoint. Theres a clash and that clash creates discourse and the freedom to speak and also for those concepts to be explored rather than swept under the rug. Metal is reactionary from all angles of the spectrum.

    So yeah sure, i’d love to see racism, sexism gone etc but only by rational discussion and persuasion of argument rather than suppression and censorship. I would rather face the fact that things i don’t like exist rather then paper over them for my own comfort, echo chambers are often more dangerous than a conflict of ideas.

    With regards to the Anselmo incident, it may have been an inside joke but since I wasn’t there its impossible to know. With inside jokes though you need to make sure everyone is in on the joke for it to be funny. Clearly not the case since someone felt it needed to be shown to the general public. At face value he’s guilty of telling a joke that fell flat. If it wasn’t a play on white wine then theres something more sinister there.

    Is he racist? Maybe, seems like he has enough interaction and good relationships with people of different colours and cultures to suggest he isn’t or at least not maliciously so but then again its not the first time he’s said something with a racial connotation so theres at least an element of it at play.

    I’m not sure if “I don’t know, probably a little but not really” is an acceptable answer in an age of black/white reductionism, sloganeering and public hysteria but its probably the most accurate.

      Yes why? If you are referring to typically being opposed to change then no that is not the meaning i am utilising. I mean in the sense that it is oppositional to traditional structures and viewpoints for better or for worse.

    There’s plenty of room for anti-racist views in metal. In fact, I think it’s pretty goddam metal to say Fuck You to the people who piss you off. And the people in my home town who grab their baseball bats and guns when they hear that there have been Nazi’s spotted in town are a lot more metal than some pathetic basement dweller who smiles and nods along to shit they know is wrong.

      They don’t care about one mans personal beliefs, they care about racism, wherever it may come from. Sure, Phil has the right to state his opinion (hate speech is not free speech mind you), but others also have the same right to tell Phil they don’t agree with that opinion. Someone disagreeing with you does not make them “butthurt”. And you know if Phil doesn’t want to be called a racist he shouldn’t be racist. He made his bed, he can lie in it. You don’t get to be an arsehole and expect no consequences.

      Yes, correct. “Hate Speech”, as in the dictionary definition, the illegal kind: “Speech that offends, threatens, or insults groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other traits.”
      Not hate speech as in I hate onions and child molesters and the colour red.
      If hate speech were free speech it would be legal to insite violence. But its not. Thank god. Rethinking that? No thanks.

      Why would you support a law like that, knowing that definition? It is a violation of rights (and also impossible) to restrict and control people’s speech and thoughts.
      And I am afraid IT MUST be legal to incite violence. We could never declare war and the military couldn’t work if it wasn’t.

There has been many black entertainers who say they only hire black people or speak to blacks. Nobody bats an eye.

    Just a view from the other side of the coin. We have become a society of witch hunters. Someone voices an opinion, WITCH HUNT!!!. Where growing up 80s, 90s if you knew someone with different views you were like k, that’s just them and moved on. Now it’s witch hunts everywhere on social media

      “White Power” has specific, racist connotations. Personally, I find it hard to understand being “proud” about the colour of your skin. You can be proud of a culture, yes. But that centres on the actions and achievements of that culture. And “white power” achievements are, specifically, centuries of exploitation and slavery.

      Well Tony, in LA/So. Cal where I grew up, there were issues of racists coming to shows (especially in Orange County) & you’d have metal heads, punks & crusties beating the shit out of them. It used to be a badge of honor to kick those asshole out of the scene but now it’s ‘why can’t people take a joke?’ ‘it’s only music, who cares? ‘

    so phil loses some followers and probably gains a couple, but the bottom line here is simple, won’t be tolerated and therefore “never supported in any way or form”, which i applaud. that’s what happens. choose your own adventure from this point forward.

      Anti-racism is legitimate – and the only problem with it, is that there isn’t enough of it. That it’s not militant enough. That it’s eclipsed by racism still.

      I see where you’re coming from, but I spot a difference, since Brujeria was an obvious image band, they play these mexican druglord roles. And it’s not equal to the role let’s say some black metallers plays on stage and in interviews, since that image is still related to the same person. In Brujeria, everyone knows that Chapo Gringo Gonzalez or whatever they named themselves is obviously Dino Cazares. Accusing them of racism would be like accusing Edward Norton of being a racist because of what he’s done in American History X.

      i mean its not “ok” but its a life choice to be ignorant, just as it a life choice to stand up against that shit at every turn. i mean i release some dark material but its not geared to incite hate in anyone in particular. White privilege in full effect here. it is serious and all my friends and aquiantices are that are not WHITE and are fans are not ebjoying this at all, how would you feel if a idol you look up to turns out to promote your extinction, not good. not funny, not in #2016. Keep it brutal, hate everyone.

      “if so, I am the most racist motherfucker out there” – sounds about right.

      … Says the guy with the Black Sun profile pic. Seems you are speakin the truth man about being a racist motherfucker, but i also think you have been one long before Phil raised his fat old arm (okay, i know he already did several times before, but you get my point anyway).

      I do not have the privilege to laugh with you, Billy, because I’m not enough white to ignore the racism in a joke.

      “tolerance and universal brotherhood are so edgy”

      I mean, they kinda are? People have been bigots since the beginning of time. Nothing “edgy” about that.

      Been listening to metal for most of my life, Damien. I don’t need a safe space and I don’t need to be coddled. That won’t stop me from saying that corny nonsense is corny. Not sorry.

      Tolerance is not edgy because of historical context. If you’re living in any western nation it is quite literally the establishments social demand, there is nothing remotely rebellious about it.

      Tolerance is not the establishments social demand. If it were the elite wouldn’t be able to play “divide and rule”, something that racism is a major factor in.

      Intolerance makes you a cool fuccboi, I reckon. Battlejacket, Mountain Dew and Intolerance. The tenets of tr00 metaldom.

      You act like the organic inevitabilities of multiculturalism had to be manufactured, as if throughout all history, division was only ever caused by dictated blind intolerance. The elite…jesus wept.

      Look, I don’t support this particular action but you’ve got no chance if you’re trying to tell me it’s more acceptable to be racist, that division is publicised more than tolerance and understanding, that altruism doesn’t permeate the very core of modern western establishments. If you truly believe that then we’re wasting our time here.
