Yes, most "Satanists" actually don't worship the devil, and the beliefs aren't a lot crappier than any other religions' beliefs, but it's packaged in shock value. If you call yourself a Satanist, don't be upset about people not understanding you (yes, I have known people who were).
There are some people who call themselves Satanists here I believe. It gives Christianity too much power and implies that a person is still hung up on Christianity. I never was a Christian, so I don't care that much.
If you're looking for Satanists, you're most definitely in the wrong place friend.
If you're trying to draw up some form of correlation between Atheists and Satanists, there is only one... we both don't go to your local church. Beyond that, we're not compatible.
... actually, I think there might be more of a chance of finding a Satanist in a church than an Atheist.
As for heavy metal... I can't see a correlation there either.
I actually find more Christians than Atheists or otherwise at heavy metal concerts.
Seriously, attend a few, look around... crosses EVERYWHERE.
... the only groups I find scarce at heavy metal concerts seems to be those of middle-eastern origins, but that's mostly a cultural taste in music.
Thanks everyone for responding.
