National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM) Movement



Heil, if you wanna know what is National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM).  Read all this article, everything you need to know about NSBM is on this very page.  Almost everything on this page came from NSBM.ORG, the now-defunct ultimate site for NSBM music, philosophy, and informations.

What is NSBM?

NSBM is shorthand for "National Socialist Black Metal," referring the
bands, fans, labels, supporters and freethinkers who comprise this
subset of the black metal underground subculture.

NSBM bands must be both National Socialist and black metal, but
there are specific tendencies of these bands that distinguish them,
such as blending ethnic music and black metal, strong nationalism,
Romantic themes, endorsement of natural selection and Nietzschean
will to power and love of struggle, as well as a fondness for the
National Socialism practiced by Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP.

Not every band with NSBM influences has a philosophy anywhere near NS.
Black metal itself endorses natural selection and a love of all things
traditional, including ancient pagan religions and profound nationalism.
It is important to note that "race" in the context of National Socialism
means national identity and organic state as expressed through genetics,
culture, language and values.

National Socialism is a modern movement which evokes the values of
ancient civlizations where honor and culture were paramount, which
seems strange from a modern time where our only value systems focus on
material equality for the individual.


National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM) Movement 


Song: Politischer Soldat
Band: Flammentod

The extremes of musical passion attract fascist ideologies in a time when a Judeo-Christian moral values have caused humanity to poison the earth and sky and waters, destroy ancient cultures and adulterate their races, enslave many to the tedium of a society motivated by commerce, and remove all desire for individuality in existence. National Socialist black metal (NSBM) is aurally hateful music that diminishes the listener and saturates them with isolationist and ancient mystical beliefs, separating the tribes so we may have our peoples remain unique and unmarketable.
Unlike most White Power music, NSBM did not originate in the White Power/White Nationalist community, but was created by outsiders who suddenly found National Socialist and Pagan ideals to be empowering and relevant. Musically it is the closest metal genre to punk hardcore that exists, borrowing from the crustcore and Satanic heavy metal traditions to formulate something opposed to all social forces including Semetic Christianity, Judaism, humanism and liberalism. Hated by the people who don't like hate groups or hate crimes, NSBM remains an outsider form of both black metal and white power music that is not fully accepted by either parent group, but is recognized by many as the only source of extremity powerful enough to fuel sonic hatred as is required for black metal.

About NSBM.ORG and National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM)
NSBM has received its fair share of media, but never has had a chance to articulate itself to the world. Portrayed in broad terms of evil and fear, such as "Nazis" or "Nazi metal," the bands of NSBM have been vilified in the press and in popular lore and are considered by many to be the most hateful variant of the White Power music spectrum, as well as the most virile and destructive brand of black metal. In starting this site, our goal was to expose the artistic side of NSBM and to expound briefly upon its philosophy, so that the world might know things from our side of the fence. Since no media will cover the music or its side of the story, it is upon us here to give a small testament to actuality.

What Is NSBM? NSBM is a type of "modern" black metal, coming from the movement that arose in Scandinavia during the early 1990s. Many of the bands which initiated this genre, including Burzum, Darkthrone, Mayhem, and Impaled Nazarene, have cited or alluded to National Socialism and its imagery and ethos as part of the inspiration toward their music. Although black metal varies in sound and ideal, it shares across its genre an obsession with darkness and destruction of the Judeo-Christian social ideal, as well as a blistering sound of rasping vocals and distorted, chaotic guitars over droning percussion.

What do NSBM bands Believe? Although there is wide diversity (snicker, snicker) among the beliefs of the members of the NSBM movement, most espouse some variants of the philosophy and political ideality put forth by Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP in 1930s Germany; many are also inspired by Benito Mussolini, Julius Evola, Savitri Devi and H.P. Blavatsky's Theosophy. Most accept to some degree all of the major beliefs of National Socialism, including ethnic nationalism, a rigid ethos of honor, environmentalism and anti-Semitism. Speaking for those behind this site, we believe that the modern republics, inspired by Christian and Humanist ideals of individualism and material comfort, have led us into a grotesque error of judgment which has produced a technocratic and symbolically-manipulative society. Our manly values have become passive, and in passivity, we have rejected natural law and nature, replacing it with a human creation of signals and social custom for which there is no natural precedent. Further, our society is currently on a hellbound stampede to eliminate these older ideas, unnaturally so (if they were truly obsolete, they would simply die out) and in the United States at least, people of Jewish and radical right-wing Christian heritage have disproportionate power. We reject the notion of "God" and of Judean morality; we embrace the ideals of naturalism, paganism, honor, blood and soil. Our goal is to create within society a group where these ideals can be practiced, in which we can begin to repair the damage done to our environment by industry and can have more meaningful lives than the technological drones and their convenience-based, product-oriented lifestyles. If these ideals are appealing to you, go to our listing of National Socialist groups and begin work as a lone activism or a group member. Popular activities for the newly initiated include flyer distribution, countering ZOG propaganda and public demonstration. The world is always changing, but humanity controls this change, so our goal as awakened humans should be to ensure enlightened rule soon replaces the selfish and destructive chaos that now passes for a society.

1. What is NSBM?

NSBM is shorthand for "National Socialist Black Metal," referring the
bands, fans, labels, supporters and freethinkers who comprise this
subset of the black metal underground subculture. 

NSBM bands must be both National Socialist and black metal, but 
there are specific tendencies of these bands that distinguish them, 
such as blending ethnic music and black metal, strong nationalism, 
Romantic themes, endorsement of natural selection and Nietzschean 
will to power and love of struggle, as well as a fondness for the

Not every band with NSBM influences has a philosophy anywhere near NS.
Black metal itself endorses natural selection and a love of all things
traditional, including ancient pagan religions and profound nationalism.
It is important to note that "race" in the context of National Socialism
means national identity and organic state as expressed through genetics,
culture, language and values.

National Socialism is a modern movement which evokes the values of
ancient civlizations where honor and culture were paramount, which
seems strange from a modern time where our only value systems focus on
material equality for the individual.

2. Where does Adolf Hitler fit in?

His writings, especially the first four chapters of "Mein Kampf", the
25 points with which he addressed the German people, and his wartime
correspondence with Goebbels, have been highly influential in the NSBM
movement.

It is useful to understand Hitler's influences, which include Arthur
Schopenhauer and Jewish racial Nationalists like Theodor Herzl;
Hitler's philosophy fused German conservative ideas with those of
early radical Greens, the German folk-oriented volkisch movement,
and the concepts of the organic, localized state derived from
modern socialists.

3. Do you support genocide?

We support natural selection, and ethnic nationalism, which means
that each state supports an organic population defined by language,
culture, values and genetics.

In the course of establishing such states, other nationalities
must be relocated, and some have chosen to use genocide as a 
method. While we have no moral prohibition against it, many of
us question its utility, while others question the historical
record of the Holocaust.

Those who write this FAQ view both methods and historical
questions as immaterial; what matters is doing what's right.
However we prefer to avoid genocide.

4. What is the role of natural selection?

We support total death for weak humans. Why?

- This cannot be stressed enough: we are poisoning our planet through
our carelessness and raw need; there are too many of us for nature to
also breathe fully.
- Most humans are primitive intellectually, relying on reactionist
behavior like a group of frightened monkeys flinging their feces at
change.
- Most humans are so self-interested you invade the living space of
others with your demands; in short, most of you are dishonest, lying,
indifferent scum.
- The lesser mind forms a consistent lowest common denominator (LCD)
which can be manipulated by Judeo-Christian or capitalist politicians
to destroy Pagan, Norsk, Gnostic or Aryan belief systems in practice.
The lesser mind requires control, where the stronger wishes almost
none.
- There is no direction in the current growth of social systems except
toward more control, in age where control is increasingly easy.  Once
established, control is nearly impossible to break.

Think toward war!

The natural world is more powerful than the artifical society and
morals of humankind.  Its evolutionary system works through vast
powers of regeneration and full expression in idea.  Our belief is
that nature as primarily good MUST be respected.  By destroying the
weak and elevating the strong, we are working with evolution to
produce a more beautiful world. 

Almost all NSBMers will say that it is important for each culture to
preserve itself.  We hate the global government and the capitalist
plastic culture which destroys that which is refined and replaces it
with the easy and reactionary living.  You have entertainment and
products so you are content, but you hate growth - we hate you - the
cold void will invade.

5. Are you racists?

We believe in ethnic separation for all ethnic groups. We believe
multiculturalism doesn't work. We believe that in order to preserve
an ethnic group, it must be distinct from all others in values,
language, culture and genetics.

Other people call this "racism" because they're afraid of it and
are hoping that social censure will make it go away. True diversity
comes from many monocultures existing independently.

6. Why aren't you out killing people?

Our goals are political and require work on many levels.

7. You are taking out your own deficiencies on others.

Contrary to pop psychology common knowledge, nationalists are not
necessarily "broken" within or self-deficient.  Most of us live free,
do not beg from others, and do what we deem to be excellent in life.

Often, people have sensible reasons for hating, such as threatening or
destructive behavior on the part of the type of genetics they hate.
When those people become convinced some of this behavior is genetic,
they will hate that particular and distinct combination of genes.  If
the behavior is cultural, we have to ask what is the result after
years of this culture shaping genetics and genetics in turn shaping
culture? We prefer family, history, roots and culture to another
nation cum shopping mall like the USA.

8. What would you do to America/the world?

Ha, ha.  Yes, like in the movies.

It would not be in our interests to tell you.

9. Why haven't you updated the site?

Black metal and NSBM have both been invaded by trends which imitate
the past but do not achieve its internal understanding of context
and the architecture of belief. We choose to distance ourselves 
from these also-rans and instead focus on those who made coherent
statements with their music.

10. How can you be nationalists and want racial separation but not
be angry, impotent racists?

This question was answered best by a Klansman named John Baumgardner:

"It was back in 1985 when I first met Osiris Akkebala, Chief Elder of
the Pan-Afrikan International Movement (PAIN). Chief Akkebala hosted 
a radio show in an all-black community where we had a scheduled 
demonstration. PAIN follows a Garvian philosophy, and understanding 
that Marcus Garvey had met with the Klan in the 1920s, Chief Osiris
approached me for a private meeting. We hit it off well and have 
been good friends ever since.
 
Sometime in 1990 we began holding joint demonstrations--the Klan in 
their robes and the Africans in their dashikis. Needless to say it 
sparked quite a backlash. Many klansmen were angry at me for even 
considering such a thing. In my view it was a match inspired by God. 
Why should we have a problem with black men who are strict racial 
separatists and want to establish a homeland on the continent of 
Africa? I have even publicly endorsed the payment of reparations 
to blacks but only for the purpose of repatriation back to Africa.
 
I believe that all people have a right to self-determination, a 
right to choose their own government, and their own religion. 
Clearly, blacks in America have not had those opportunities. As 
Minister Louis Farrakhan said: 'If we can't get along together, 
then we need to separate.'
 
I'm a revolutionary white separatist, not a white supremacist. I 
don't feel superior to any man because of the color of my skin but I
understand that the Aryan people (making up only about eight percent of
the world population) must have a separate land uninfluenced by other 
races or by the criminal government that occupies Washington D.C. I'm 
not naive enough to believe we can get it without a very bloody 
struggle." - http://www.folkandfaith.com/articles/revklan.shtml

11. Does this music exist only to spread the NS word?

NSBM exists to create a vision of a better life and to make it alive
and playful in the hearts of its listeners.

It is our great pride that this music is first art and then the
expression of power.  NS is not political; it is about bringing an end
to politics through the focused power of a race.  NS is not about
politics and making people obey.  It is about destroying politics and
setting the people free. National Socialism is not politics, or
religion, or culture, or a method of civilization, but it is all of
those at once. The modern way is to separate connected things; the
ancient way (traditionalism) is to understand them as a process that
cannot be divided. That alone is our highest political statement.

Music is war like anything else.  Make beauty from an ugly task.  With
fire and sword carve out a new world, a new adventure...

12. Why do people listen?

Because the music is great, we say.  Decide for yourself.
