One of the guys who bought Nazi material from Northern Resistance Movement or one of the guys in a band with guys that buys Nazi material from NMR?
The vocalist who won't comment on his obsession with writing song after song and album after album about Nazis other than to say he's a history buff?
Genuinely not trying to to troll you here but I think it's paramount that any discussion of any band like this highlights that they're at the very least Nazi sympathizers. The perpetual skimming over of this as problem that otherwise completely reasonable people do when recommending bands is staggering.
Listen to Underdark https://underdark.bandcamp.com/ or anything released by React With Protest instead.
A couple of mates of mine in Brisbane had a U-boat themed rock'n'roll band, they all dressed as German submariners onstage... Nick is totally obsessed with U-boats and all the songs were about being a submariner during the world wars, he abhors Nazis but it's true to say you're on very dodgy ground with even something like that... They split up a couple of years back...
For sure even if you're a passionate historian/military enthusiast with a genuine hate for Nazis it is a very delicate line you're trying to walk, and certainly once you get in to costume element I'd say it was particularly ill-advised. Interested to know if he ever spoke of or acknowledged the kind of cognitive dissonance at play here.
Aye, I understand and also apologise for sounding a bit condescending, however I kind of think that the whole NSBM thing is so well known that it's basically Black Metal 101 to do at least a cursory glance in to any band before listening/recommending them. That and the fact that's not hard to find a lot of really very good BM with no NS ties gives removes any leg to stand on when it comes to listening/promoting bands like Burzum/Graveland et al.
Not meaning to labour the point but the whole separating the art for the artist narrative the persistently put forward by people across all art mediums at at best apologist bullshit and just enables these poisonous ideologies to be more easily perpetuated.
I wholeheartedly recommend giving any and all of these a listen of which I've no doubt you'll be familiar with many so please forgive that:
Wolves in the Throne Room
Allfather - more thrashy than BM but also playing in New Cross next week
Underdark - yes sorry I'm repeating them here
Also look http://red-and-anarchist-black-metal.tumblr.com/tagged/music or https://r-a-b-m.blogspot.com/ should yield you with some excellent leads.
