how can "black" metal have such lyrics, I mean, as far as i know black metal is about (but not limited to) "satanic" or "antichristian" lyrics, maybe paganism, nature, philosophy, but anything but christian lyrics... maybe im wrong, and black metal is about the style of music not only lyrics... i hope some of you guys can help me with this little doubt, Thanks

the question isn't how, but why. Why would a black metal band have such lyrics?

No, the REAL question is whether bands with Christian lyrics can be called black metal if their music sounds similar to black metal. I say no.

The real question is, do we really have to discuss this shit AGAIN?

Luckily, I know the answer.
