Metal Music Is Satanic And Pagan And Is Leading People To The Antichrist

By Theodore Shoebat

Metal music is satanic and pagan and is leading people to the Antichrist. This is the subject of my most recent video:

    This is a nonsensical sweeping generalization. Mainstream (if it can be called such) black metal is generally satanic. The image you chose looks like its from a Gorgoroth performance, which is one of the worst. One of their vocalists, Infernus, is a theistic Satanist who formed the band to ‘express’ his satanic views. All other forms are like any other music. Content varies. Power metal doesn’t even utilize growled vocals. They use clean vocals.

    Just because you think it’s “garbage” doesn’t mean it’s satanic. Not even all black metal is about Satanism or Paganism. Summoning, for instance, has Lord of the Rings themed lyrics. Don’t take the worst of a group and paint them all with that image. Would you agree with an atheist using a p*dophile ‘Catholic Priest’ as a representative as the whole Church? Of course not. And you can’t do that with metal, or any other genre of music…not even…rap…I gritted my teeth as I typed that last word, but it’s true. Also, there is such a thing as “unblack metal”. Check it out:

    I would implore you to look at this comment as constructive criticism, not purely negative. You had some good information in your video, and I’m actually glad you are covering Gorgoroth and others like them. They don’t take enough heat for their evils.

    God bless. 🙂

      I have to agree with Ted on this particular topic and note this with the utmost respect. Christ instructed us to be in the world but not of the world. Metal is a pagan style of music.

      For example, prior to the Liturgical changes (after Vatican II), including replacing Gregorian chant with Protestant style hymns, the majority of Catholics revered the Holy Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation (because they truly believed Christ was in them), and they certainly wouldn’t consume the Holy Eucharist in a state of mortal sin / grave matter. This was considered unthinkable to most because to do so is sacrilege.

      Today most Catholics think like Protestants and don’t see any need for Confession nor do they care whether they are in a worthy or unworthy state when partaking of the Eucharist (in my nation at least). A Protestant style approach to Mass has helped form a Protestant style of Catholic (that isn’t Catholic). Style matters.

      Praise God for the many Catholics who still believe in the teachings of the Church and the sacraments.

      • DeusLoVult

        First off, I do not appreciate the implication that I think like a Protestant and don’t take the sacraments seriously. Nothing could be further from the truth.

        Now, to your claim:

        “Christ instructed us to be in the world but not of the world. Metal is a pagan style of music.”

        Let me ask you a few questions. At its core, what separates metal from any other form of music? What defines pagan music? Is it the use of certain instruments? Are all instruments satanic, perhaps? Should content not be the qualifying factor to judge by?

    I mostly agree with this article.

    Metal music CAN be Satanic, and many metal songs ARE Satanic. However, metal as a style of music is not necessarily Satanic.

    Theoretically, you can use instruments that are used to play metal music to make songs that don’t have Satanic messages. And of course, you can play music without surrounding yourself with Satanic imagery like that seen in the photo at the top of the article. In the end, it is all about what the music and songs are about, as opposed to what they sound like.

    Satanic messages can be found in songs across all genres of music. In today’s day in age, that observation is impossible to miss. As Christians, we are called to to distinguish the wheat from the chaff. If that means choosing a metal song with non-Satanic messages over a classic rock song WITH Satanic messages, then so be it.

    On a personal side note, I don’t like metal as a style of music, even if the lyrics and imagery are not Satanic in the slightest. I find the sounds created by the instruments to be annoying, and — especially in modern metal songs — there is too much non-singing. When I listen to music with lyrics, I expect to hear SINGING, not talking or screaming to background music.

    That being said, metal music is not the worst genre of music when it comes to the quality of the music outside of the messages of songs. THAT dishonorable distinction belongs to rap music (which also has many songs with Satanic messages), particularly post-2010 rap music.

    The other day, I read a great article by Nolan Dalla that serves as a critique of modern rap. If you can get past the excessive use of swear words, you would agree with me that the article is great. The link is below:

    In the article, Dalla defines “real music” as the following:

    (1) Real music is created by humans, not by a machine or a computer.
    (2) Real music has structure and consistency.
    (3) Real music elicits real emotions — of love, loss, anger, fear, happiness, hope, inspiration, or anything related to the gambit of being human.
    (4) Real music requires talent.
    (5) Real music requires instruments and/or voices.
    (6) Real music should be cross generational.
    (7) Real music shouldn’t need gadgets or special effects to be enjoyed.

    Metal music fulfills conditions 1, 4, and 5. Rap music doesn’t fulfill ANY of them.

    Metal music, for all its flaws, at least doesn’t have to resort to using electronics (no, electric guitars are not electronic devices). Rap music almost ALWAYS has to resort to using electronics.

    Metal music, for all its flaws, at least requires talent. You have to know how to play instruments, and depending on what kind of metal you’re performing, you may have to know how to sing. Rap music doesn’t require ANY of that. EVER. All you have to do is recite poetry to a weird beat.

    Metal music, for all its flaws, at least requires instruments and voices. Rap music does not require instruments, and many modern rappers are so incoherent when they speak their “lyrics” that no sane person would consider their songs as having a “voice” of any kind.

    So yeah. I consider metal music superior to rap music, although I don’t like either genre. Metal music is capable of being Satanic, much like all genres of music. But unlike rap, Metal music at least TRIES on occasion to sound like real music.

    God bless.

      Try power metal if you don’t like growled vocals or abrasive instrumental work.

      Also, that article is pretty interesting.

  • DeusLoVult

    None of those genres HAVE to be blasphemous. Those names connote sound, not necessarily content.

    To answer your question specifically, I think the answer is that metal is versatile and unconventional. It allows one to evoke a gamut of emotions and imagery that I do not believe is possible with other forms of music…not easily. There is also an energy in metal that one does not normally find elsewhere

    I think it is also important to note that metal itself is just a genre of rock. Few people would argue all of rock is satanic.

    My position on this is a little nuanced. I myself have had a long love and hate relationship with music. Like a lot of people my generation, It was everywhere part of my life. Mine was the first MTV generation-when it actually played music videos, that is. I also had a musical family of varied tastes as well. I liked a little bit of everything, but in the Metal genre, I liked groups like early Metallica (before ‘Master of Puppets) and Iron Maiden. However, I was more into the artists who actually pushed the envelope of Guitar Rock, like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Yngve Malmsteen. All this music speaks to a generally white young male, reveling in and dealing with the triumphs and perils of being a modern guy. It can be harsh and brutal and even discordant, like a battle, because that’s what we do. Are there evils and even evil bands and songs? Sure, I could probably name a few right off the top of my head. Not everybody is going to like Heavy Metal, and I myself have kind of lost my ear for much of it. But it’s still music. Rap pretty much is Satanic both in form and content, and pretty much fails on every level of qualifiying it as music; its pretty much ‘Anti-Music’.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    My story is very similar to your own, a life struggling with the consequences of secularized and liberalized ”Christianity” giving ground on everything, including creation.

  • DeusLoVult

    Fair enough. Didn’t mean to overreact. I’m so accustomed to snide remarks on here, I tend to think that’s the way everyone behaves. My apologies. Glad to see someone who doesn’t act like an a*s because they disagree. That’s becoming a rarity in the modern world.

  • DeusLoVult

    No problem. 🙂

    Metal is complicated, and it’s an acquired taste, I think. I used to dislike metal. After listening to it for a while, I began to appreciate the depth of the music and the energy it had.

    Does he now? I’ve mulled this over a few hours and had realized something. Look at a lot of mainstream music…the satanic influence is there, it’s simply expressed differently. More subtly. Satan tailors his strategy to different audiences.

    Funk, eh? Can’t think of too many people who like that. Not that I have a problem with it. To each his own.

      Personally,I think a lot of mainstream pop,the likes of Katy Perry and especiallly the dreadful Rhianna and Madonna and that awful Kesha one, do far more damage because they reach a larger audience.Plus, their “rinky-dinky-do” tunes coupled with their semi-pornographic lyrics and videos ,are aimed at little girls,so they seem to be deliberately attempting to corrupt the innocent! You won’t get many underage girls wanting a Black Metal CD for their birthdays nor parents taking them to the gigs,like my sister-in-laws took their then 13 years-of-age daughters to see the brazen Rhianna when she came to Ireland!I thought that was completely inappropriate but I think I am in a minority as many parents don’t seem to see the harm in letting their girls admire or even idolise these pop-tarts who sing about sex and dying young, whilst cavorting like strippers-half-dressed and writhing- in their vids and on stage! It really disturbs ME though!

    How about Imagine by John Lennon? So smooth and subtle. Even some christians thought it was wonderful.

  • Ceirwyn

    “that god is in you” is only true if you’ve entered covenant with God and as a result have received the indwelling Holy Spirit. 😉 Everyone else is just a deluded humanist or worse, a host vessel interacting with a lesser spirit.

    Another lie is “we’re all in God’s image”. No, only born again Christians are in God’s image. All others are in the image of fallen Adam, hence the need to be “born again” as a new creature. It’s cousin lie (that amounts to the same thing) is “we’re all children of God”. Only Christians are Children of God. The rest are Adam’s kids.

  • DeusLoVult

    “they have the largest audience/influence!”


    That is certainly part of it. Also, more extreme metal subgenres tend to attract people who are more blunt and/or open about what they believe. Brazen, if you will.

    Perhaps you might like folk music?

    You’re welcome, Avram. God bless you too. 🙂

    I’m suspicious of even the so called “good” metal music. There always seems to be some underlying threads in them. But where the devil succeeds the most is in pop music because it reaches the children. Consider Katy Perry’s “I kissed a gurl” sung by elementary school kids facing a free range transgender “choice”.

  • susan

    Does anyone have any knowledge or opinion about this band?
