If they're actually unironically being white supremacists and pushing that in their songs, then fuck them, I ain't listening to that crap. It's the same thing with "Christian metal" bands - I will not condone nor participate in their putrescent ideology and filthy belief system.
Does an ideology or belief system penetrate the music itself? Are we not allowed to enjoy Richard Wagner’s music because he was an antisemite?
Also, being “sarcastic dicks” is a terrible excuse for producing reprehensible content (misogyny, nazism etc.), but that won’t stop me from enjoying some Brutal Death like Gorgasm or whatever.
