Most offensive metal song?

Recommended Posts

I think that what would be considered offensive in regards to metal music would be extremely relative.  Are you referring to what the general public would consider offensive, or members of the metal community?  Bands like Cannibal Corpse might be shocking to most people, but are usually not so for those who enjoy death metal.  At the same time, significant portions of the metal community become worked up over NSBM bands.

God gave rock n roll to you covered by Kiss in 1991 always makes my stomack turn for some reason or another. It's got too much of a missionaring feeling to it! However life is to short to go around feeling offended...unless you like feeling offended all the time. I simply do not listen to it.

I live in a very religious/ conservative county and besides black metal I've found out Lutherans really hate grindcore. One of my favorites soley based on gross out factor. Torsofuck. Torsofuck-Erotic Diarrhea Fantasy is a great choice, there is just so much obscene stuff to choose from.

For Example: Fistfucking Her Decomposed Cadaver

                     Raped by Elephants

                     Four Legged Whore

Most of the cannibal corpse cannon would be pretty offensive to joe public for sure. Entrails from a virgins cunt, for example. But further digging I feel like a lot of black metal, especially the church burning variety or the NSBM stuff would be considered pretty offensive.

I think that is true, however, I am becoming increasingly aware that so few people even know what it is that it is rare fore someone to be offended by it.  I can pretty much wear my Burzum shirt wherever without anyone questioning it (though it has happened).

Anything by A*C?

Are they metal though?  I always classed them under noisecore.

I always thought they were considered Grindcore...and they were featured heavily in the Slave To The Grind documentary...

By the way that's an excellent documentary & well worth a watch...even if you aren't the biggest fan of the genre.

Either way...I find the entire history & approach of A*C highly offensive...although one can't deny they did leave a legacy...of what I'm not sure.

I think that they changed their styles over time, but, then again, I am also not an avid listener of their music.

That being said, I tend to think of their music as more humorous than offensive.  The deliberate extremism in content, when blended with live performances that are downright hilarious, make their music appear to be an attempt to make fun of prevailing standards of both morality and music.

I never heard of that documentary before, and it sounds really interesting.  I will have to look and see if I can locate a copy/place to see it.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
