Episode 25: Anti-Patriarchal Black Metal with Margaret Killjoy

This post was originally published on this site

In this episode, we talked to Margaret Killjoy, an anarchist musician and writer who recently released the debut EP from her solo black metal project Feminazgul. We spoke with Margaret about reclaiming the darkness of black metal with anarchist and feminist principles. We also talked about her upcoming book The Barrow Will Send What It May (the second in her Danielle Cain series) and her dark electronic project Nomadic War Machine.
