Some music that is completely unrelated to metal has a strong metalhead following. Why do you think metallers have in their collection a bit of Dead Can Dance, Death in June, Tangerine Dream, Biosphere, My Bloody Valentine, and the Cure. Also, a true metaller has to think Kate Bush is hot.

Is this due to namedroppings by prominent musicians? Conrad Schnitzler's intro, Varg and his love for Das Ich and DCD, Lords of Chaos author being in Blood Axis. Would some of these groups be out of business if it wasn't for black metal and death metal?

Lets discuss normal music for abnormal people.

In the early-mid nineties,
in smaller US cities,
if you wanted to make out
with a black metal lady, it was not so easy as it is today.
You would go to goth nite looking to score. You would
dance to the cure remixes and erasure and maybe Nitzer Ebb
and your pants grew tight as you watched pale ladies of the
moon dance, too.


True story, gothbros.

For me, I like to explore other forms of dark or noisy music. Name drops by name metal musicians helps with the leads I guess. I mean, who would have checked out the Misfits if Metallica hadn't covered 'Last Caress/Green Hell' on the Garage days ep?

To the list I would add:
Leonard Cohen (Early albums in particular)
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (leading on to 'The Birthday Party')
Johnny Cash
Laibach
Big Black (leading on to Albini's other bands 'Rapeman' and 'Shellac')
Bauhaus
Death In June
Non and other Boyd Rice related recordings
Fields of Nephilim
Swans
Foetus
As well as various Punk, Hiphop and Electronic artists.

In Australia and NZ a lot of it has to do with the CMI label being heavily promoted by the same distributor who imported pretty much all the early Black Metal releases. So it was easy-ish to get in the shops and was usually on the racks next to underground metal releases.

another aspect could have been groups like Godflesh namedropping Throbbing Gristle, SWANS etc as influences. Some overlap perhaps with Mick Harris moving from Metal to industrial Dub.

Completely agreed with the influence of pussy on lonely metalheads haha.

Godspeed You Black Emperor is pretty great, although the albums after their reformation have been a bit of a letdown. Liking them has gotten me laid.

Same.

The bands OP mentioned are definitely not unrelated to metal. They may not play metal, but their music is still dark, introspective and melancholic - that's the connection. And while there has always been cross-pollination of influences going on in between genres it seems to me that black metal has the strongest connection to these non-metal styles. I can't imagine a serious Pantera fan also being a DCD or Death in June fan, but is it any surprise that many people are into both Burzum and DCD?

I'll listen to absolutely anything. soul, rock, metal, reggae, punk, classical, jazz, pop, new wave, surf etc. Namedrops from musicians and thanks list sometimes help, but that is usually within the same genre of music.
I just try to keep an open mind about everything and give any artist or band a chance.

I have a boring non-metal taste. I dont dwell to much into depts of other genres. Mostly just low energy stuff from Bruce Springsteen (the more stripped down stuff), and some country, singer songwriter stuff. But i have only superficial knowledge of such genres and artist, and am quite content with youtube as sorce for that type of music.

One kind of music that I sincerely enjoy and most metal fans don't give a fuck about or don't know it at all is the so-called "space age pop" from the 50s & 60s. Mostly weird Exotica LPs that feature a lot of man-made imitations of exotic birds (extremely enjoyable during summertime), but also experimental weirdos like Joe Meek or classy elegant stuff like Jackie Gleason.

And I also like some Brazilian bossa nova from the 60s/70s, which can get sort of metal-friendly if you know a lot of Italian horror movie soundtracks that were influenced by it.

I listen to anything, pretty much. I think people get thrown off when they look at my CD collection and find A Flock of Seagulls' "Space Age Love (single)," right under Abigail's "Intercourse & Lust." Laughing

Some of my favorite non-metal bands/artist:
The Beatles
David Bowie
Hank Williams (Sr., Jr., And III)
Björk
Ace of Base (Yes, I have all of their stuff; singles included.)
The Magnetic Fields (Stephin Merritt's a genius)
Deadsy
Luther Vandross
George Clinton
Insane Clown Posse (not METAL!! But, who cares?? *cricket cricket* :p)
Orbital
KMFDM
Esham
old Nine Inch Nails
The Prodigy
Those are only a few, though.
