Hate music is part of white supremacist circles

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) — When they aren’t ranting in Internet forums, many of the nation’s white supremacists seek a louder outlet for their views: thunderous, thrashing heavy metal or hardcore punk with lyrics that call for a race war.

Wade Michael Page, the gunman who killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin before being killed by police, was deeply involved in the “hate rock” scene. It includes hundreds of performers in the U.S. and Europe, most of them playing metal or punk but with some preferring country, folk and other genres.

This extreme musical subculture is a big part of neo-Nazi circles, offering a way for followers to socialize, recruit new members and raise money.

Page played in several white-power bands with names such as Intimidation One, Definite Hate and End Apathy.
