A parlimentarian in Kuala Lampur today asked the government to investigate “Black Metal,” a so-called “anti-religion cult” practiced by some Malay Muslim teenagers — “confessed ‘satan’s children,’” in the words of the parlimentarian, who burn and step on the Qur’an and apparently commit other acts “more terrible than [any] during the Era of Ignorance.” From the (few) other online accounts of “Black Metal” cultism, said to have spread from Malaysia, events more terrible than the Age of Ignorance seem a lot like what Westerners call the wonder years.
