The Moon, she hangs like a cruel portrait
Soft winds whisper the bidding of trees
As this tragedy starts with a shattered glass heart
And the Midnightmare trampling of dreams
But oh, no tears please
Fear and pain may accompany Death
But it is desire that shepherds it's certainty
As We shall see...
But that sounds like an ode to suicide, the devil's sacrament. Is that a death metal track?
If you did not know the general source, would you have thought that?
It is the introduction of a song which tells a story (not involving suicide at all). The point that the sound of the music is what is normally rejected. It "sounds" and "looks" Satanic and it does not appeal to the general public. It is complex, and harsh.
However, that is not what Satanic is. Satanic is alluring, attractive. It appeals to the senses. It encourages one to relax, be calm, be content in this life. Satanism is not symbols and black and ghouls, but a perverted Garden of Eden which appeals to our senses.
That is to say, that "Satanic" music is in fact music which appeals to the most base elements of humanity. The rhythm, the catch, the worldly lyrics, the messages of pop music are Satanic. Why would a demon care about the minority when it is so easy to infect the majority?
Now, that metal song lyric bit I gave was from a band which is decidedly not wholesome by any means, but I think objectively it is not as bad as what is played on the radio in the grocery store.
The song is about a witch hunt/lynching told from the perspective of one of the accused. I looked at the entire lyrics again to get more detail, and it seems, when one looks past the imagery of the lyrics, based on popular misconception of the historical reality of "witch hunts" (or, since the writer is English, it may be about the Anglican perspective as I often see the English referencing when they are against Christianity).
I do not think there is much to be gained by giving more detail, but if anybody is particularly interested in it, I can give the source and the music video. Most would find the music video to be unpalatable I think (and it is), however, it is far better than the typical displays of the pop world, both in visuals and in sound. The pop crowd would reject it as being ugly, disturbing, and "Satanic", whereas they all bow down to their idol of the flesh and their prophets, the highest paid harlots (to put it mildly). The imagery of the metal song is of death, paleness and darkness. It is opposed to God (in several ways), but it is also opposed to the idol most used by Satan, the idol of complacency and of the flesh.
I think the style would be called symphonic black metal.
I think it would be less scandalous to post the video of the metal song because it would not probably lead anyone to sin (most would turn it off I think), whereas the video (if there is one, I have no desire to look at that stuff, even in research) of the pop song is probably very inappropriate if how the "singer" dresses and acts in public is any indication of what it is like.
