I'm sure there are Catholics involved... I wouldn't doubt it if the movitation for a list involved defending the values of the Church or their community... but all of that is removed from equating Catholicism to fascism. That's a bit different.

Personally, I've seen Behemoth perform a couple of times now. I've looked at their lyrics, laced full of the occult and satanism. In the larger scheme of things, there are more threatening bands to worry about than these guys. Behemoth lives next door to Dimmu-Borgir-Land.

Behemoth's lyrics are more philosophical anyway, they don't exactly encourage violence.

Both satanic misanthrophy and an associated sense of violence drive a lot of their lyrics. You're being very generous in your appraisal.

People who advocate the banning of bands really need to get a fucking grip, especially when the band in question is as tame as this.

Well I'll admit theres a LOT of misanthropy, but no sense of ...real violence. Theres a bit of "BLAH BLAH WHEN SATAN POSSESSES ME HE WILL WIPE OUT THE HUMAN RACE" type stuff, but its not, y'know, credible violence.

You listen to Pig Destroyer. You've probably forgotten exactly what tame is.

I read some Behemoth lyrics, and nothing jumped out at me as particularly shocking, especially compared to many of their death metal peers. This is just more Christian hysteria directed at strawmen and imaginary enemies.

Both of you have lost your perspective on how extreme our music actually is. Do you realize that many adults consider just the name Judas Priest an extreme expression?

You mention death metal peers. Have you forgotten how far death metal is from the top 40 billboard chart, much less Behemoth's blackened interpretation of the genre?

Blackened.... Read Behemoth's song titles. Read their lyrics. It's all there. In fact, remove the "blackened" from Behemoth and there's not much of a band left. In the context of the original report, 'blackened' music is very much the target.

The question on the tables isn't Behemoth.... it's really whether the occult and satanism are helpful and healthy, for our youth or anyone else. One doesn't have to be Christian or particular religious to appreciate the hate and negativity inherent in blackened genres can be extremely harmful to an individual's mental health, certain spiritually corrosive, especially to those lacking an otherwise stable anchor in life.
