Description Metal experienced a great boom in Czechoslovakia at the turn of 80s and 90s. Styles of extreme metal such as thrash metal, death metal, and black metal were also established there. Czech black metal at that time was based on explicit satanic discourse, and the main inspiration for Czech black metal bands were western black metal bands such as Venom or Bathory. The contribution deals with the form and the role of Satanism in the discourse and ideological background of bands Törr, Root, and Master’s Hammer which were the main representatives of Czech black metal in the late 80s and early 90s.
