Rockin' Black Shabbos

Among the privileges of hegemony is the privilege of taking for granted everything that entails. From The World on PRI, this brief segment explores Israeli heavy metal, which has a more Old Testament feel.
The music is inspired by Motorhead, Ozzie Osbourne, Iron Maiden - the classics. But, there is a difference in the lyrics. Christian imagery, especially the crown of thorns kind of stuff, has long been present in metal. There are even Christian metal bands. But not here. One ban playing tonight, Acropolis, calls itself Hebrew Metal.
