Vegan Black Metal Chef Launches Official Website, Explains His Stance On Vegan Cuisine

Florida's "Vegan Black Metal Chef" Brian Manowitz has launched an official website for his ongoing series of recipe videos. On his website Manowitz offers the following explanation on why he choose to use vegan recipes for his black metal themed cooking show.

"The fast reason I tell people why I am vegan is that I do not believe in the exploitation of animals. Exploitation in this case means that the animal suffers for our benefit. Most animals raised for food live in what I would consider a darker hell than one even I could ever imagine. The best parts of their lives is their moment of death.

"Chickens live in tiny cages [amongst] mountains of shit, Cattle live in crowded factory farms on cement floors. Pigs live in crowded pens, or if its a female that has just given birth, live in tiny 'gestation crates' where they can not even turn around. Turkeys are given so many hormones that they grow too fast for their bones to support them. Of course not each and every animal is treated like this, but it is such the majority case that its time to bring consciousness to this area and decide if we want any part of it once and for all."

You can read the "Vegan Black Metal Chef's" in depth response to choosing a vegan lifestyle at this location, with the first episode - featuring a vegan version of Pad Thai - in the player below.

I think this is brilliant. I am not a Vegan, but I do appreciate what he is doing. How many guys/girls do any of us know that would actually use such a harsh genre in Metal for cooking? This is unique and smart. I give this guy many, many, props.
After all the 10th law of Satanism is not to kill animals
"10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food."

His first video on YouTube cracked me up. Really smart guy too, his website is very interesting. Most of all his music is fun and his recipes are tasty. I'm not a vegan (I'm very happily into slaughtering animals for food) but I can deeply respect what he's doing.

Hopefully he'll brush up on his grammar skills or get someone to proof before the next installment. That was my only complaint to an otherwise brilliant 1st episode. His recipe could easily be converted to a meat lovers pallet.
