Some years back, I spent six months travelling the world, making a documentary about white power music and its role in funding and inspiring the far-right on a global scale. It took me from an armed neo-Nazi camp in the hills of West Virginia - run by former boxer "The Aryan Barbarian" and his wife, a one-time go-go dancer with the stage name Holly Caust - to the back streets of northern English towns; and from a hate rock festival besieged by German police to the racist underbelly of seemingly charming European cities like Milan and Stockholm.

Washington - A fatal shooting this past August at a Sikh temple by a skinhead in a 'hatecore' rock band shocked the nation. 'Hate music' is little known to those outside of that dark world. What is 'hate music' and is there a link between it and actual violence?
On the Sunday morning of August 5, 2012, in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, a male individual dressed in a white T-shirt, military-style black cargo pants and armed with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun entered the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin shortly before 10:25 a.m. and commenced with a shooting spree.
