    ...which would explain why more white people listen to rap than black people listen to metal.

    Also because there's a whole lot more fucking white people in the US than black people.

    That is very true. And additionally, "black culture" is very much in style nowadays.

    I'm getting the hang of Drawing Down the Moon. A really good album actually. Although the faster tracks like Down There and Werewolf sound really poor. Do they even have structure? Regardless, overall that's some pleasantly hypnotic, eerie stuff.

    And that rap is a popular style which has media attention.

    Metal is more popular among white people because it's largely anti-modern, and white people are closer to the processes of modernity that metal reacts against.

    He thought the scene was gone to shit when he was alive, and given that it has declined exponentially since then he probably wouldn't change his opinion. That's Euronymous the character though, honestly I think he would be in some hipster band like Opeth right now if he were still alive.

    You obviously know more about shitty music than I do. It was just a term that I recalled used by a presentation given by a student in one of my classes. I really don't care if I didn't use the most applicable term.

    Everything draws from the blues. Every form of new western music has some amount of blues influence. It may come directly or indirectly.

    Varg is crazy and fucked up, probably due to prison rape and stuff like that.... anyway I don't think you could predict anything from him...... except he just won't ever live outside of his prison walls, he's too insane.

    I hope they never let Varg out. A total asshole who can do only a few things good. Other than those things...he is a total waste of space.

    He will probably be released next year. I hope he is, it should be extremely interesting, even though he has claimed that he just wants to live a private, secluded life.
