Heavy Metal Only 35 Percent Satanic

Heavy metal proves to be not half bad.

Russian psychiatry professor Fyodor Kondratyev has stated that 35 percent of all heavy metal music contains satanic references.

"Having researched 700 most popular heavy metal songs revealed that half of them is about murder, 7 percent is positive about suicide, and 35 percent preaches a variety of Satanist ideologies," the professor told a Russian newspaper.

35 percent? Is that all? That doesn't seem too bad, does it? It's less than half. That 350 songs are about murder is a bit more disturbing, but let's look at that for a second. One of the ultimate heavy metal songs is Slayer's "Raining Blood."  Here's a few lines:

Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood! 

Just because there's blood doesn't mean murder. And other than a previous reference to "the abyss" this song doesn't have any particularly satanic content. Ok, I'm not saying Slayer doesn't sing about murder and Satan, but I would like a list of the songs Kondratyev listened to.

You know, just to see which ones I already own. 

If this put you in the mood for some head banging, evil, kick-ass music, here is a Slayer tune that really is satanic, "Hell Awaits."
