Black metal pretending it still has relevance beyond the standard rock-n-roll task of disgusting the elderly. Once upon a time, black metal actually scared people because it stepped out of the rock ghetto. Then, thanks to some entrepreneurial types in Scandinavia, UK and the USA, it became a form of rock music with a flavor -- a whiff -- of danger about it. Now black metal is the new emo for the 2010s and threatens nobody. They just tolerate it, knowing that eventually the discoordinated noise will end. Remember when black metal was noisy AND ALSO beautiful? That scares them -- that you might have found another way to live -- where simply disorganized noise scares nobody. In fact, it's repeating the same disorder that's found everywhere else in our society, and by doing so, affirming it. Tools of the system.
