Are there any metal bands out there that have anti islam lyrics or content? There is a plethora of anti christian bands but I have never seen any anti muslim bands.

Many bands also denounce all Judaic religions, of which Muslim is a part. Thor's Hammer has that album "Three Weeds from the same Root" which would mean it is Anti-Muslim, Anti-Judaism, Anti-Christian. Sorry not too sure about anything that is directly anti-muslim.

Try Nervengas. The music is half-decent, but I've never had any sense for black/thrash.

Usually any skin-head band like Grinded Nig will often hate everything but themselves, who are white christians. So that includes anti-muslims, as it's my understanding that skinheads are against all of everything. Does that count? Or are you strictly looking for "I hate muslims, kill all muslims"?

'Skinheads' are, bald people arent always, 'Skinhead' is a gang term, usually related to those with nationalism views...and no hair (as far as I remember, if I'm wrong feel free to correct me)

If he was looking for skinhead bands, he would have asked for that. I'm certain he meant anti-moslem bands only.

Doesn't Exodus have an anti-Islam song on their newer/est album?

There are actually non-racist 'Skinheads.' I remember watching a show on it once, where they claimed that "people always group us with the racist skinheads" or something to that extent.

Skinhead is a lifestyle that I believe originated from Britain and If I believe correctly, theres many strands of skinhead cultures including the usually vocal WP ones along with also very vocal Anti-WP ones.

Alright, shouldn't have used to the term skinhead. Where I come from it's simply another way of saying "neo-nazi".

Mortal Sin have a song where they say something along the lines of "I'll never be a Muslim". That's about all, and saying that doesn't necessarily make you anti-Muslim, but in a certain context it could, and that's the only lyric I can remember so I don't know.

That makes them about as anti-Muslim as Destruction... Curse the Gods.

I remember reading that a while back Lord Belial was dropped from their label for trying to make a single called "Purify Sweden", which was anti-Islam and anti-Christianity.

EDIT: And here it is:
"Being No Fashion Records refused to release the song, "Purify Sweden" was released as a single on a new label."

Maybe not just anti-Islam and Christianity, I see some others hated in there.

Exodus has some anti-Muslim/anti-war songs on their most previous two releases; Children of a Worthless God is the most obvious one.. and the best.

On one of the Ad Hominem albums (I forget which one) the intro has a Muslim singing praise to Allah, and then you hear a gun cock and shoot. I dunno if their lyrics are specifically anti-Muslim, though. That intro can be interpreted as a racial/NS statement moreso than a religious one.

Ad Hominem are more on the NS side.

The most notable bands are Ayat, Ayyur, Dhul-Qarnayn and maybe Al-Namrood.

I didn't listen to Taghut, but their lyrics seem like they've been written by an angry teenager.

This is true. But since the overwhelming majority of Muslims happen to be of a Middle Eastern ethnicity (and since a lot of them tend to look the same), some do see them as a race. There are Muslims who are of Oriental, Caucasian, African, etc. descent...but the generic idea of what a Muslim looks like is someone with olive/tanned skin, dark hair and dark eyes.

And as for the OP...if you search "Islam" or "Muslim" (no need for the "anti" prefix considering there won't be many bands with lyrical themes revolving around Islam and its followers) under the lyrical themes tab of the search engine, a list of bands with such lyrical themes will be generated for you.

I'm also VERY curious about this.
Sure, Taake has an official shirt with the back-print "Anti-Islam", but none of their lyrics touches the subject even the slightest.
And in regard to Zyklon ... care to elaborate?

Actually, I've heard that this is wrong, and that the majority of the worlds muslims come from a different background. Remember that places like Pakistan, Afghanistan and India doesn't count as "the Middle East".
Just China has over 39 million muslims of chinese descent.

I remember stumbling across a black metal band named Exultet a while ago which have somewhat anti-Muslim lyrical themes. I can't recall whether they're any good or not (and I can't check, as my internet has been sped down). They might be worth checking out though.

Are you just asking out of curiosity or do you really want to listen to anti-Islamic music? If it's the latter, well go f**k yourself and your prejudice. If it's the former, never mind.

The population of the Middle East is close to 600,000,000 which would make up more than half of the entire Muslim population of the world. But yes, you are right that there are lots of them living across the globe. But what I was getting at in my previous post is the stereotypical physical characteristics of what a Muslim looks like. Obviously, when airlines take those certain people aside for extensive screening, they are not thinking of someone who looks Chinese or white.
