Black metal giving tolkien a bad name!! Can't Post

Im a metalhead, and one thing that I like and yet don't like is the use of Tolkiens works in this musical genre. I particularly listen to death metal and black metal, in which are the heaviest influenced. Many bands such as Amon Amarth (mount doom), Gorgoroth ( the plains in mordor), and Burzum (some black speech word), just to name a few, are named after Tolkien based things. There are heaps more Tolkien band names out there, and the thing I don't like a lot about it all is that they base themselves on the bad side of Tolkien. The evil. Gorgoroth and Burzum are both extreme satanic bands, and some of the things these people have done are absolutely appalling!( I only listen because I like the music, not the themes..... Anyway) To me using Tolkiens works are insulting. He was a wonderful man, and dedicated Christian, and these guy just defile his works!!?? It really annoys me deeply! To me this gives Tolkien a bad name, and almost makes out that he was some sick evil lover. There is not many times where I see music praising the beauty of his works! Always the evil!

Anyway what do you all think of this issue? Does anyone agree with me?

"And do you really think, Thorin Oakenshield, that Bolg will have the slightest symphony for you? After he watched you hack his fathers hand off, so ruthlessly in Moria. Azogs defeat has brought nothing to you, only refuelled hate of his kin, upon yours"
