The truth is, I can't appeal to everyone try as I may. Not everyone will see the vision I have or "get it". And trying to slice in so many things (many I love on their own) to get around that and appeal to more people isn't the way to do it.
But it kept bothering me... the lyrics, something I had read in the comments. I just had to kind of maul over it a bit more and introspect on it. I wasn't happy to keep doing my normal routine.
An intimate knowledge of mysticsm and/or Satanism wasn't lost on a lot of black metal bands, and fans knew full well that they were the real deal whether they agreed with the lyrics or not.
