National Socialist black metal

National Socialist black metal, commonly known as Nazi black metal, is a subgenre of black metal music concerned with ideas of racial separatism and the Aryan race. Their racial and nationalist ideas derive in considerable part from Nazism, though they typically add a focus on virulent anti-Christianity that is not particularly prominent in historical Nazism. Along those lines, most bands of this type have adopted variations (with varying degrees of authenticity) of pagan beliefs and traditions, believing them to face destruction by Christian beliefs.

Well-known bands include Burzum, Thor's Hammer and Kataxu.
