Now, musically people should be free to play whatever they want, but it feels like a bastardization of what black metal is supposed to be to have someone remove an integral part of the genre and then claim to be doing it the "right way." I don't agree at all with most black metal politics and worldviews, but I think they are absolutley essential, just like the punk mentality was essential to hardcore. One without the other just isn't the same. Plus have you seen what they look like? Fuckin hipsters.
Oh, you make my job too easy.
