The genre is also associated with radical ecology, bio-dynamic farming and creating a nature-based occult worldview often focusing on themes of Apocalypse, transformation and modern society's lost connection with the natural world, often described as "eco-metal", "organic metal", "astral black metal" and often perform live shows outdoors or in venues only lit with firelight.
