Question

I know that they’ve released albums with bands like Absurd and a couple other NSBM acts, but the frontman said that it’s not about nazism, but rather fully about satanism no matter the circumstances. They’ve been barred from festivals and stuff. I personally like the band, but I was wondering how people would react if you had a patch of theirs on your jacket, because I don’t want to be portrayed as a Nazi.

I think the reactions that you will receive will depend largely upon the people you are around.

First of all, most people will not be able to read the logo in passing in the first place (especially if it is just a patch), so in casual, everyday environments you probably would not have much to worry about.

As for those everyday people who can read it, I would guess that most would just be offended (to some degree) by the idea of a band named "Satanic Warmaster."  Most people don't like Satanism, but unless you are in a strongly Christian place you will probably be fine.

Satanic Warmaster is a black metal band that is really great, and I would like to think that most fans of bm would be able to look past any potential political leanings that the man behind it might have.

That all being said, as you have already mentioned, Satanic Warmaster has been barred from festivals for supposedly being an NSBM band.  Therefore there are clearly some people who would give you a hard time about publicly supporting it, but it is up to you how much weight to give their opinions.

Overall, I think you should be fine.  Support the bands you like!

    • 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!
