I'm more than aware of the queer punk scene, but are there bands in metal with lyrics and music on LGBT emancipation/lifestyle/whatever?
sidenote, I'm not a fan of deathcore :P

thanks in advance!

Now that it's been brought up, I'm curious about this as well. I've never come across anything of the sort before, so it would be eye-opening.

I could find only one song by Bralalala, but besides being trans as well I cant find much to relate too haha

I'll just post a nice queercore song in the meantime, played with these sweethearts 100000s of years back.

Hope more people will reply!

I guess sexuality as a whole is just not a very common theme within metal. Unless it's some sort of misogynistic porno grind trash.

Judas Priest of course have a few cryptic references to Halford's experiences.

I don't know this band but it's def. not hardcore :p (not to my ears at least) horrible music and lyrics but thanks for the share anyway!


@foxxorz Priest crossed my mind, I'm definitely not versed enough in their lyrics to really know which songs deal with Halfords sexuality. Also thanks for the share!


It kind of seems like a missed opportunity, isn't homosexuality like a nice example of "fuck the doctrine of the church" and the whole "do what thou willst, that is the whole of the law" satanism thing?

Its also gay.

But seriously though, it is a massively missed oppurtunity. Apparently all the bisexual overtones and androgyny ended up in glam , shock and cock rock. Just talking about it is making me so hot !

I know that there was a grindcore band that was all a bunch of guys and they're gay themed and their last.fm photo was a picture of a bunch of guys laying on top of each other. I'd love to recommend it to you if I knew what the name was but I'll keep my eyes open and edit this post if I find it.

When will asexualcore get its own band? I'd totally listen to a band that's pissed off about how un attracted it is to other people.

A few early proto-Glam punk/rock bands welcomed this, yes, but metal has always been too macho and blue collar to openly embrace queer themes.

black AND gay? SIGN ME UP!

Also, a (joke) metal-influenced hardcore band that espoused a lot of "fuck you" homoeroticism without actually being a "queer" band is Nigel Pepper Cock, but the influence is more of an affectionate, winking parody of metal aesthetics than a sincere "we play metul" approach:

There's Pure X. Featured Dream Evil members. Was a joke though. In Sweden we got a few punk bands that have these themes. Pure X is a bit like those except it's a metal band.

:oh shit:

There's also The Kristet Utseende, which is similar but on the punk end of the spectrum. They took to calling their music "narcotic gay metal", which mostly fits except for the fact that it's mostly punk and not metal. Metallic punk perhaps, but still punk.

This is what they sound like:

Cretins guitarist and vocalist is a transwoman.

http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Cre ... iscography

They are straight up old school grindcore, active since '92, Repulsions Col Jones is responsible for the drumming.
The lyrics are well written, bizzare, non-serious and actually audible.

Totally slept-on but def. among the best grindcore bands of the 2000s

Highly recommended!

Lyrics:
Spoiler: show
I didn’t want a son
I got one anyway
Little boys have nasty
Things between their legs
I’d rather have a girl
A dolly I can dress
My pretty little princess
A transgender success

Daddy’s little girl
Daddy’s little girl
Dressing him in drag
He’s confused and kind of sad
Daddy’s little girl
Daddy’s little girl
Teaching him to be
A little she and not a he

I put the lipstick on his face
And make him wear a dress
He cries and carries on so much
Mascara makes a mess

We have a fashion show
He models mommy’s clothes
Teetering in heels
He learns to strut and pose
I make him tuck his stuff
Back between his crack
He stumbles when he walks
Until he gets the knack

Daddy’s little girl
Daddy’s little girl
Slipping hormones in his food
He blossoms into womanhood
Daddy’s little girl
Daddy’s little girl
His breasts begin to swell
Is he Michael or Michelle?

Teased by kids at school
Because I send him there
With painted fingernails
And lacy underwear
They lift his frilly skirt
And pull his ponytail
Then snap his training bra
And call him "faggot"

He thinks I’m saving money
For his college education
I plan to use the money for
His sex change operation

Speaking of Cretin, check out Winds of Genocide and Uncoffined.

Kat "Shevil" Gillham is another notable transwoman vocalist.

Cretin! I totally forgot about them!

She's absolutely stunningly beautiful as well. Gives at least some hope for people like me :P


@Ljjnico, Thanks I'll check them out!

Pure Hell weren't openly gay though, right? Or were you just making a joke.
