Heavy Metal Geography

Metal is a worldwide phenomenon, spanning the globe and every race known to humanity in the pantheon of its originators. From the spread of heavy metal as the cheap jet fuel that represented the only vaguely relevant aspect of colonialism to the emergence of death metal in populations of alienated and critical youngsters immersed in the tradition and anchored in the longstanding lineage of their nations, metal is an outspoken voice of dissent, change, and abstract thinking in countries and continents otherwise enslaved to the current world culture of mass consumption, avoidance of the value of life in order to deny mortality, slavery to subservience in order to escape the burden of personal choice, and destruction of nature to obliterate the traces from which we emerged as a species.

From North America to Australia, from far East Asia to the nearer shores of Europe, from the Norsk northlands and the South African steppes, and even from the Middle East to Central America, death metal and black metal and heavy metal and grindcore and thrash have manifested a presence which is more or less permanent. Furthermore, the civilizations within society have adopted it as a facile and resilient voice in the style of cultures as diverse as the Native Americans of the United States, the Inca in Peru, the Tamil in Sri Lanka, the Montagnard in Laos, the Nordics in Sweden and the native peoples of the Brazillian rainforest. All of this origination goes to show: metal isn't about where you're from, but how you think - a tendency that spreads itself alongside the world intellectual malaise of symbolic denial.
