I would dispute the “demonic” thing. Metallica were a thrash band above all else. Thrash is probably the least D&D of the metal sub genres in general.
Yeah even early on nothing remotely demonic about Metallica. You could make the argument for Slayer.
And even Slayer is absolutely performative.

A thing about thrash I’ll note is that of all the metal subgenres, it’s the one most likely to be political, and even left wing. It’s also the subgenre with the most non-white musicians/fans.
And yet Hetfield is pretty conservative, isn't he?
Oh yeah, it’s not exclusively left wing by any stretch (Hi Dave Mustaine). But overall, the genre is farther removed from the worst reactionary bs nazi shit you see in Black Metal, for example.

Mustaine was at least sort of left at one point. Now he's also a BAC so part of the territory and getting older and richer has a way of making people conservative. Sacred Reich is an example of left wing thrash.

Napalm Death is usually my go-to example. Those guys rule.

Both Napalm Death and Sacred Reich (whose name sounds super nazi but absolutely isn’t) are great.

The final track off their latest album, many fans agreeing this is their best track since Justice. I'm more than happy to cosign that.
