Some find their best inspiration in dark things – blackness, the grotesque, and sometimes the hellish (cue the sound effects now!). The definition of ‘dark’ is broad, and all 10 of the ‘darkest’ musicians that grace this list possess their own style. What they all have in common is, they are known for their intensely dark musical personalities.

The 10 Most Powerful Frontmen In Heavy Metal And Hard Rock
Amazing performers, distinctive voices, memorable style and working with a ‘metal’ band (not hard rock, grunge, punk or hardcore); these are the criteria for becoming one of the ten most powerful frontmen in heavy metal and hard rock.

The Prevalence Of Atheism/Religious Skepticism In Rock Music In 2013

11/7/2013 10:47pm EST
Black Sabbath: 13
Let me first state that I have no agenda with this feature, none in the least. My goal is to present some examples of atheism within popular music in 2013. Why? Because it is interesting how artists include their various beliefs and philosophies within their music. It is even more interesting in some cases where references to atheism and religious skepticism aren’t necessarily overt in the forefront. Again, there is no Christian, agnostic, or atheistic agenda. None. NADA! Now with that off my chest and “all minds and hearts clear…”

Atheism (and agnosticism as well) in popular music, partic...
