and Christian rock
— death and black metal would have to be the most appropriate possible genres for a certain brand of Christianity.
Consider the story: a vengeful, jealous deity
, bearing strong resemblance to many a bearded Viking
god, has a half-human son (without the woman's permission) for the specific purpose of ultimately sacrificing him by means that are both excruciating and bloody.
Whereas the average human sacrifices result in something like better weather for the crops or victory in war, the ironic result of this one is that nearly all of us puny humans, too ignorant or naive to accept this Lovecraftian
reality, are condemned to suffer torments inflicted by a band of fallen angels led by none other than Lucifer
How fucking metal can you get? Does Buddhism even approach this?
