Antestor Attacked By Mob
2013-02-04 by Michael Snoxall | 72 Comments

Christian black metal band Antestor were met after a successful gig in Brazil by a large group of angry metalheads and were subsequently beaten in a hate-fueled attack. The band were luckily rescued by nearby Police forces and escaped serious trouble.

The attack was organised by a metal blog called WarMetalBR in an attempt to dispose of Christian black metal's "cultural plagiarism". A statement from Antestor's guitarist, Robert Bordevik:

“Antestor play extreme metal with a Christian message, while those who lay in wait for us are ‘Satanists’ — they lag ten years behind musical developments development in Norway. It is just not something new that some extreme metal fans ‘hate’ the Bible and Christianity. But it is the first time for us that there is such a thing.”

For those who believe this, any form of humanist or Christian attempt to make “black metal” will seem like someone spreading the opposite message of the genre within the genre, so it’s not surprising they retaliate. Perhaps this will spur the black metal community to go back to its roots and analyze what it actually stands for.


oh my god black metal doesn't fucking stand for anything

it's a musical genre, anyone can play it if they damn well want to

i'm anti-religion as a whole but assaulting a band for their beliefs is just utter stupidity

From skinheads to kvltists to dope-smoking hippies. These people apparently forgot that black metal
was built on controversy in the first place, which is exactly what they created for this band.

No but Adolf was trolling and "pure" black metal isn't even a real thing since kvlt bands like Emperor and Ulver added non-kvlt influences early-on in the genre's development. These violent morons worship a concept that doesn't even exist.

Black metal's origins are like, synonymous with satanism so
And even if it doesn't mean it nowadays, if you profess to be Christianity, why choose to associate with something so close to something that like, completely speaks against what you preach? Blah.

The band is comprised of Christians who like the black metal sound and decided to make black metal music.

So a Christian can't play in a black metal band simply because black metal was originally founded with satanic lyrics and whatnot?

You didn't have a point to contest, they wanted to play black metal, so they did. It's a style of music, not a lyrical subject matter.

Have you watched a single documentary on black metal? Second-wave started the whole satanism bullshit it was never about that until the media propaganded it when Varg was arrested for arson.

The stuff that was a great influence on black metal (Mercyful Fate especially) was all about satanism. The second-wave Norwegian stuff (Burzum, Mayhem, etc) wasn't about Satanism but was still very much anti-Christianity.

Right but I am not talking about the themes. While first-wave had satanic themes, second-wave actually believed in satanism. There's no evidence that I know of to show that first-wave was actually anti-christian.

Venom and Bathory and all that jazz were all anti-christian. And second-wave black metal wasn't about satanism.

all this band have ever said is that they play black metal, the musical genre

they never claimed to be part of any scene that didn't coincide with their views

lol and even then none of the second save norwegian bands were satanic in the slightest, apart from those no one really talked about at the time (gorgoroth for example)

Here's also a little Wikipedia excerpt to help support Antestor (lol wikipedia hehe):

"the early unblack metal groups Horde and Antestor refused to call their music "black metal" because they felt that the term was strongly associated with Satanism. Horde called its music "holy unblack metal", and Antestor preferred to call their music "sorrow metal" instead."

You're right, I mixed up second-wave with third-wave which was Gorgoroth and shit. While Venom and Bathory may have talked about being anti-christian, I doubt that these guys were influenced to act the way that they did from them. Their actions seem more reminiscent of the 90's

All I was saying was that it seems a little backwards to be pro-Christian in that type of setting. I'm not saying omg every black metal band praises Satan before playing omg. It's just unnecessary fence-straddling in my opinion. But of course, everyone's okay with everything now so

"genres dont speak against anything, dumb***".
"Anyone who thinks ANY genre stands up for anything is retarded".

Definitely missed my point entirely, but okay.

Totally. A normal black metal band would love to have the claim of being attacked by an angry mob as a notch on their belt and if getting the shit kicked out of you isn't something to frown about, I don't know what is. Glad they're ok though.

hey JrmyPrks... pretty lame to call the fact that a band likes and plays black metal music, but are christian as "unnecessary fence-straddling"... Music is Music and anyone can play whatever they want and shouldnt be ridiculed for their own personal beliefs simply because original BM bands were gimmicky and fake. But of course everyone is ok with everything now so ok..................................hahahah

This incident just made black metal fans look even more retarded.

Some were saying all black metal is not Satanic, that's not true. It's like saying gospel music is not religious. That is why
we have 'white metal' the non-Satanic black metal. Those that said that were thinking of the genre 'extreme metal' which
has all of those sub-genres within it.

"Lack of wisdom overpowers humanity" Well said Antestor, well said.
These violent fools deserve to live in caves, with the rest of the animals.
