Maybe "satire" isn't the most technically correct word in a strict collegiate sense, but the point is that it's usually pretty damn obvious when an artist is exploring fantasies without strictly advocating for their enactment. Calling African slaves "mongrel dogs" with a "flawed geneome" makes it pretty obvious that these songs are racist trash.
I was talking about stuff like Gorgasm that’s extremely misogynistic, so I really don’t know why you’re suddenly talking about dismembered people (horror) or monsters (fantasy).
So how would you know members of Gorgasm or similar-themed bands don’t secretly beat their girlfriends senseless at home or condone and encourage violence against women? You don’t and it wouldn’t matter if you did, because no elements of satire or parody are present in the lyrics making them reprehensible trash regardless of the - in your case entirely speculative - intentions of the author.
But, as you’ve admitted, we’re talking about lyrics here, not music, and the music of both Gorgasm and Arghoslent is quite enjoyable.
