that's exactly what "war metal" is.

I'm pretty sure that war metal enthusiasts consider blasphemy to be the first war metal band. It's called war metal because it continues the satanic theme, but instead of performing invocations or just straight up preaching (figuratively speaking), the lyrics/ideas are about declaring spiritual warfare upon Xian.. or to advocate evil supremacy.

I do think it's a silly name, but blasphemy and archgoat are two of my favorite bands of all time.

i see, that's what i was wondering about. most of the bands that i see labeled as "war metal" have almost no lyrical themes about military warfare. a lot of the bands that i would consider "war metal" based on lyrical themes and not musical style (bolt thrower, arghoslent, cobalt etc...) are not "war metal". thanks for the clarification.

I don't think it's a real genre either.
Stuff like Turisas can get called war metal too. Anytime I've seen "war metal" used the band can usually be categorized under another existing genre.

Bestial black metal IMO is the more appropriate term.

"Together proclaiming war
The worlds ending forever more
A nuclear power plant scare
Breathing out the flame of doom
Cursing all evil on the land
Nuke metal sinning calling of war
Angel's blood dripping from the sky
Hailing in the sign of Satan"

Archgoat - Heavenly Vulva (Christ's Last Rites) [their most recent album]


this album is awesome. I heard some of these songs for the first time at MDF. I recommend.

Here's what wikipedia says:
War metal, also known as war black metal,[22] is an aggressive and chaotic black metal style, described by Rock Hard journalist Wolf-Rüdiger Mühlmann as "rabid"[22] and "hammering",[22] influenced by first wave bands like Bathory,[22] Venom,[22] Possessed[22] and Sodom[22] as well as by old grindcore, black and death metal bands like Repulsion,[22] Autopsy,[22] Sarcófago[22] and the first two Sepultura releases.[22] War metal bands include Blasphemy,[22] Archgoat,[22] Impiety,[22] In Battle,[63] and Zyklon-B.[64]

"war metal" is just a term like "pirate metal" or whatever, but agree with bestial black/death metal. black/death can be just modern shit like Behemoth so the bestial part is part of the tag for me. one of, if not my favorite styles of metal. collector/nwn poster to the max.

Remember a few years ago when NWN! reissued Fallen Angel Of Doom & God Of War/Blood From The Altar on the diehard vinyl editions? The diehard editions are still going for a lot of $$$ on Ebay.
