Extreme Nation and the South Asian Metal Scene
National Socialist black metal - Wikipedia
Gone are the days in which society saw heavy metal as a threat to its institutions, and as a pathway to anarchy and satanism. Indeed, in the 21st Century, if you want to see heavy metal as a social force facing real opposition, you need to look elsewhere. With its focus placed squarely on the most extreme genres of metal, Extreme Nation takes the viewer on a journey into the largely unknown at least in the Western World South Asian scene. There is something truly admirable about the musicians as well as the filmmakers who dare to openly criticize the actions of Islamists and other religious fanatics , while in their midst. Aside from the always looming threat of violence at one point, for example, the Pakistani grindcore band Multinational Corporation states that they are the victims of threats and intimidation , a great deal of the documentary was reminiscent of what heavy metal felt like when I was growing up in Latin America: A largely misunderstood genre, perceived as coming from a place of hate and evil, despite largely catering to the nerdiest among us it is no coincidence that the Bangladeshi black metal band Nafarmaan is fronted by a self-described cosplayer. Heavy metal often appeals to people who feel alienated from their communities, and it is really great to see how this music is able to bring together people who have been separated by the destructive forces of politics and religion. Of course, not everything is perfect in this film.

In Indonesia and Malaysia, subcultures lyricize hardline religious views. Behind them, a line of loud, screeching amplifiers transforms their anger into a hailstorm of pounding sonic bullets. Youths stand cheering below the stage, shaking their heads up and down and pumping their fists in the air, mesmerized by the relentless noise. This is not madness, but the powerful effect of subcultural liberation.
National Socialist black metal , also known as NSBM , Aryan black metal , and Neo-Nazi black metal , is a political movement and subgenre within the black metal music scene that promotes neo-Nazism , and Fascist and white supremacist ideologies. According to Mattias Gardell , NSBM musicians see this ideology as "a logical extension of the political and spiritual dissidence inherent in black metal". NSBM artists are not always explicit with their political beliefs in the music, instead expressing their beliefs offstage. While some black-metallers boycott NSBM artists, many are indifferent or appreciate the music without supporting the musicians.
