Black Metal vs. White Metal, Round 2
I was asked back for round two of a special Black and White metal show. I was the guest DJ for Andrew Culkeen’s show The Iron Curtain heard on Trent Radio. This is a recording of the show we did Wed Dec 7th, Trent Radio, 92.7 FM Peterborough.
For those unfamiliar with the terms “black metal” and “white metal” the distinction is simple and meaningful. According to Wikipedia:
The most common and founding lyrical theme is opposition to Christianity and other organized religions. As part of this, many artists write lyrics that could be seen to promote atheism, antitheism, paganism or Satanism.
Conversely “white metal” is described as:
[…] a form of heavy metal music usually defined by its message in a song’s lyrics as well as the band’s dedication to Christianity. Christian metal is typically performed by professed Christians.
Andrew offered the listeners his playlist of “black metal” songs, while the songs I featured represented the “white metal”, or Christian point of view.
