How... many... people.
Have gone all grimly.
And accidentally! Shaman-ized themselves.
I was on the bus. I was wearing a death metal sweater. It literally said "Wisdom Of The Dead" on it. A native first nations man was sitting next to me or something and he called out! he read it aloud. He empathized with the band immediately.
Lots of black and death metal bands developed an affinity for the occult. Built necromanteions. Tried to summon spirits and whatever like the 19th century spiritualists.
And hey guess what it works.
In their own way they stumbled upon the path of the shaman.
*raises hand* I swear.
I'm not exaggerating.
This is a big international movement if they're not actually psychopomps so to speak themselves they identify with that path and accept that as part of their growing spiritual culture.
I think it is more prevalent than people think
It is a sort of new way of drumming
