Maybe he's trying to impersonate Hollier.

I just read your comment on the forum Xeno. What makes this poorly written?

I don't know, I think you can create something that's racist without being racist yourself, but that's probably because I'm an unidentifying racist or something.

ive read through multiple interviews with them before and they describe themselves as racialists iirc

basically they think all races should be confined to their individual cultures and areas and shouldnt mix

and they are white europeans living in the US which i dont think they realize is hypocritical in itself but whatever.

Sounds like they do in fact have a lot in common with neonazis. Especially the "hypocrisy/stupidity" part.

most outspoken racists and bigots seem to have those last two qualities in abundance

True indeed. I always find it hilarious though how some people from countries (like Russia or the US) can sympathize with the 3rd. Reich and their ideology when their party program from the beginning on stated all slavonics and US Americans are enemies.

Coming out of a Victorian literature class on "degeneracy," I've come around to the idea that art doesn't rest solely in ideals we can relate to or define easily, so Arghoslent being racists has no bearing on the quality of Hornets, and goes a long way to validate their ability to express these ideas in this fashion (rather than an ironic appropriation of the story, or simply telling it as someguest suggests, but feeling it). Actual style is probably helping in avoiding uncomfortable lyrical issues. Should they be supported? idk, I'm not pulling my morals into this. Good music.

But a lot of Gothic literature is hilariously racist, fears of the "oriental other," etc.

Does not come as a surprise considering that was still a big thing ~100 years ago.

if anyone is offended by any death metal album, they've missed the point, and shouldn't be listening to death metal in the first place. are racist lyrics really worse than goregrind or porngrind or any other violent messages present in the genre involving murder and rape? and yes, i realize most of the artists in deathmetal probably don't practice what they preach, to the full extent anyway. but does anyone know how active arghoslent are in regards to their ideology? i'm curious. are they active haters off the stage, or are they just the deathmetal poster boys for the white power folk; only "taking action" on stage, like any other death metal band? oh, and love those riffs

not really, but the problem is these guys are serious about it whereas bands like cannibal corpse and such aren't.
