The Black metal community has changed over the years and has gone from being a bunch of angry and dangerous people to be for people from different nations and skin color. The community of today is much more open-minded. When Black metal was a new and small genre, the fans were not just into the music, but also to the movement. They were a part of something significant, who were doing things like church burnings. They were rebellious.
As of today, still, many people respect and listen to black metal for some special reasons. I believe Black Metal is probably the most solid community in the music world. However, it is nowhere about its close-minded habits such as the church burnings, nationalism, racism, murders, and violence. It is more about the feeling of the cold and anger in the music and enjoying those feelings.
