Being the Hero is creating conservative-oriented metal music

Hey everyone. This is Sime, founder of Being the Hero, an upcoming metal band from Italy.

I've been in the alternative music scene for about a decade. As an insider, I've had the chance to observe how thin the line can become between expression and legitimation. I've heard countless band sing about their grief & anger, and countless fans take shelter in said expressions in order to legitimize their own personal issues. I couldn't help but notice that being a f**k up had become glamorous, and I hated the appalling behaviors I could observe in my own niche - and in myself.

This sparked the intention of founding a metal band that would actually argue for traditional values and personal responsibility, appealing to the very same people who thought Kurt Cobain's personal issues made him somewhat cool.
Fast forward to 2016, in which I stumbled upon everything that was happening overseas in regards to the issue of free speech & the behavior of social justice warriors. The pervasive victimhood mentality resonated with the band's original mission, and this is when Being the Hero became a reality.

Currently, Being the Hero is still in its one-man-band format, which will be updated soon. Everything you see and hear in our products thus far is the effort of one single individual. I decided to set up this Patreon page out of the need to cover some of the (notable) gear expenses, and also to make it possible for me to dedicate more time to this project. I intend to release a full-lenght album in 2018, and to further explain the rationale behind the band's lyrics via YouTube videos. 

I believe that that traditionalism is the new counter-culture, and that the music environment is largely suffering from a lack of conservative voices. I believe that challenging the messages coming from both the mainstream and the alternative music scene could prove to be beneficial to anyone who listens. 
Your help, as well as your attention, is profoundly appreciated.
