Why Do People Like DSBM?

OK. Confession time. Ever since I first heard Mayhem and Darkthrone I have always been drawn to black metal. The blistering riffs, harsh screams, and dark atmosphere hooked me. As I have explored some of the deep recesses I have encountered some DSBM bands like Leviathan, Xasthur, and Hate Meditation. At first, I was put off by the lyrics and some of the more experimental sounds (Leviathan), but I have grown to like them. However, as a fellow sufferer of depression (and a friend of MANY others), I have some concerns about the lyric content. Some of you may say "too bad, then don't listen to it." That is fine, but I want to understand what other people see in this subgenre before I dismiss it. Sooooo, questions! Do you listen because of the lyrics or the music? (Assuming you are depressed) Do the lyrics add a solidarity and ease to your suffering or encouragement to consider suicide? Do you think the lyrics/artists promote suicide or a way of coping with mental torment? I am curious, so please post your thoughts and comments below. Recs are acceptable, but not necessary. List are digs and DSBM favorites
