Shari'a vs. Schoenberg and Heavy Metal

Actually, for some Western music, this is appropriate. Here's Shari'a on music:

...that he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, 'Return to us tomorrow.' Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection."

Where was Allah during the 'dodecaphonic' portion of Schoenberg's composing career? Where was Allah when 'heavy metal' was loosed upon the Earth?
