Seeing that black metal locals Nachtmystium are nuzzled in hipster embrace these days, I'm left wondering if homophobia and anti-semitism is just accepted now? Was there a memo on this I missed? Or is the heinousness of throwing "faggot" and talk of Zionist conspiracy around in interviews blunted by the wider context-- i.e. the scores of NSBM-aligning bands who are essentially Nazis in crypt-face? Like Nachtmystium can't be that bad because they are down with Isis and not putting swastikas on their clothes? Or is that no one has bothered to do their homework (you don't have to dig farther than the second google hit for "Nachtmystium+interview" ) before putting these assholes on blast?
