As an avid listener of metal, something that frustrates me is the prevalence of chuds and reactionaries in metal (especially black metal). The visibility of guys like Varg and Famine of Peste Noire infamy has colored the public perception of extreme metal as being the domain of edgelord fascists. What are some metal groups that could be said to be socialist, anarchist, or leftist in some manner?

To start things off, I'd highly recommend the Panopticon album "Kentucky," which is a BM album about the state's history with labor organizing among coal miners, as well as the coal industry's destruction of the state's natural beauty. It's not a perfect album by any means but the way it mixes BM with bluegrass is cool, plus it has an incredibly redpilled message.

also here are some kinda RABM comps that are worth checking out:

Riffs for Reproductive Justice
>inb4 some fags complains about the name and message of this album, I don't care. Includes some noise, hardcore, and ambient tracks. My favorite is probably the Violet Cold song, maybe the cover of Nazi Punks Fuck Off.
https://blackflagsoverbrooklyn.bandcamp.com/releases

Russian Anarchist Black Metal
>some sludge, doom, and hardcore bands mixed in. My favorite song is the Nimrud one.

>mostly black metal. My favorite song is DEFINITELY the Mystras one.
https://rednebula.bandcamp.com/album/cosmic-collective-a-choir-for-the-dispossesed

Noise for Standing Rock
>black metal and hardcore. Kinda mediocre, but the scene is fucking tiny anyways. The Zetkin song is pretty cool.
https://thedarkskiesaboveus.bandcamp.com/

Crushing Intolerance Volumes 1-5

Most metal really doesn't have an explicit political agenda, it's mostly escapism. There was a phase in the late 80s when thrash bands started to introduce more grounded themes (mostly cold war related, some ecologism too), but it was more of an identity crisis than a real movement. Punk lends itself better to sloganeering, anyway. In fact, most political themes found their to metal through hardcore punk.

Great lists so far. Pretty sure Havukruunu and Summoning have made statements that push them left of center at the least. Convulsing also did a thing against fascism but I can't really recall what he said.

Havukruunu (Moonsorrow-esque black/folk, closer to them than Agalloch but in the same wheelhouse):

Summoning (classic):

Damn Sankara is great. this is perfect, ive been trying to get into metal but ive only really been able to get into more cross genre concept stuff like Panopticon, and i was introduced to metal thru people into punk and jazz so im not really into the more glossy, goofy high fantasy viking stuff. no disrespect for it i appreciate the aesthetic, it reminds me of the goofy 90s/2000s rap aesthetic, but i like it grimier. even Burzum i do actually really like, i think i only listened to the album with the horn on the cover but i loved it, fascist shit aside

i also really fuck with Electric Wizard and Dopesmoker, if anybody has any sludgy metal recs i'd appreciate it.

Also, check out Nechochwen:

Not explicitly leftist but its an indigenous group that's explicitly anti-colonial. "Folk metal" with a lot of crisp orchestral parts which might not be for everybody but the incorporation of native flutes and drums is very cool.

Also, anybody familiar with "Rez Metal"? Apparently there's a strong metal subculture in Navajo Nation, I'm very interested but haven't been able to find much actual music out of it.

Here's a great little documentary on Rez Metal:
