I'm having a hard time with this.
I stopped listening to some bands because of what they did, do or not do.
The guy from Inquisition turned out a pedophile.
Mgla, while not a nazi band per se, are at least nazi sympathizers. So i stopped listening.
Vektor: the guy is a wife beater, but there are is some controversy.
And i absolutely loved these bands. While i can find similar bands, it's not the same.
But what i am doing not listening to it? I'm the one not listening to it and that's it. I will never give them money (i threw my Mgla shirt away) because i obtain the music by another means.
I am not helping with their popularity because i'm the only one in my circle that listens to these subgenres of metal and i mostly do it alone.
So... what's the point of depriving myself of music that i like? They are the ones who suck, not me! But at the same time i feel bad listening.
What are your thoughts on this?
