Yeah, I remember that. He gave that album an 8 too. This happened 1 year ago.

To elaborate on this, Deathspell Omega isn't a NS band but their vocalist Mikko Aspa is NS himself so they're connected to it. Obviously given his politics he's going to backtrack on anything with connections to the extreme right, but it wasn't actually an extreme right record.

A few years ago though he reviewed a Peste Noire album, which is straight up NSBM. They literally had a demo called Aryan Supremacy when they started out.

Not-so-fun fact: Mikko Aspa is also a prolific collector and dealer of morally dubious and illegal pornography. He has a pedophilia themed power electronics (kind of a noise music genre) one-man band that uses CP for album covers, to give you an idea of what he's into.
I'm not even sure why he's into NS stuff, considering most people on the far-right spectrum think pedos should be stabbed to death in prison.

Anyway, it's always the NS ties people like Fantano have a problem with when they're talking about DsO and Mikko, nothing else.

How is that legal?

interestingly enough, he didn't go on to review their album at all, not even a mention in his yunoreview series either.
Is this the youtube music nerd critic show version of payola I'm looking at? It even looks like he's reading a prewritten pr review blurb off his screen

I'm not sure to be honest. He's Finnish, not sure what their laws are or if it legally passes for "art" there. Or maybe it's not legal and for whatever reason he just hasn't been raided yet.
That could be it. Still seems wack to me that he ignores that in favor of hating him for being a faux Nazi.

Because to them, being a faux Nazi is worse than being a pedophile, something that a lot of the woke crowd seem to be secretly involved in.
Poor Fantano, he finally found an obscure artist with the perfect pedo aesthetic, but alas the quest must continue.
Could anyone link me to his crying clip from when he discovered this musician's politics?

All of his reviews follow a pre-written script, so it wouldn't be shocking if he had some notes on the singles he reviews.

Anyway, I'm surprised nobody has brought up his "vibe checks" that he posts on his Instagram, most of them have some political commentary. Probably nothing of interest but I thought it'd be worth mentioning.

It's the Gentrification/White Flight thing. White people blamed for being in a community, white people blamed for leaving a community, white people blamed for coming into a community and cleaning it up. There's no way to win. So now it's "How dare you do to this to black people, how dare you leave us here with all these black people!" There's no way to win. He is convinced he deserves whatever happens to him, and admits it's impossible for him to ever understand why. It's the national kafkatrap that is somehow becoming law.

This is the 21st Century White Man. Clapping as your identity is denigrated, nodding in approval at your own beating, your job is obsessively reviewing the worst era of music in human history on the internet, you're hobby is being sassy on social media, you think defending dumpy whores is political, and you look like a gay stereotype. His aesthetic is, what, preppy hip hop boomercore? This reality is a tomb.

I'm aware that Aspa might be a paedo (though it's possible he's just trying to be edgy for shock value) but I haven't heard of him using CP on album covers. That's illegal in Finland so I'd be interested to see the source on that. Is the project you're referring to Grunt, or another project?

As for why he's into NS stuff, if the Nazis put up with Dirlewanger, they'd put up with him. They're not a principled bunch.

EDIT: If you're talking about this I don't see any CP album covers here. It's still pretty disgusting though.
