I think its to some extent more that there are fash on *every* music scene than metal being that much worse than any others and that music subcultures have become divided between race, sexuality etc compared to the 1980s and 1990s especially the rave/disco scene (though perhaps in hindsight it was only the drugs keeping people together and tolerating one another)
Agree about discussion 100%, yeah the article did focus on just one part of the metal scene and could be interpreted as metal=fascists but we all know this ain't the truth. Metal has always been an extreme scene and shock is one aspect, so if being fascists gets attention, then they gonna play that card. And while I don't agree with fash I also don't think block/ban solves anything, just drives it underground, again I call for ID'ing the root and dealing with that..
