[Note: This item contains an article on NSBM. “Rechts-Rock” is a term for various musical genres in Germany that promote racist views and far-right ideologogies ('rechts' usually means extremely right wing). It is extremely difficult to translate since the term is defined in different ways. Within the German metal scene, Rechts-Rock is defined as rock music with this ideology (to be distinguished from NSBM); within the general public, it means any kind of music (including metal) that deals with the ideology of the far right extremists.]
