Nobody should be surprised about this news. They were really nice when they played here on their tour around Rites of Darkness so to me it's whatever. As long as they aren't goose-stepping onstage I don't have a problem with it but this is going to really hurt their popularity.

In other news, officially booked studio time today

I never really look too much into a bands lyrics and subject matter but this is one subject I don't approve of. I can't really support anyone who stands behind those beliefs. It's too bad because I really like their music. But it does change things for me.

Has the band made a statement?

This is what Dagon posted on Facebook last night:

As for this other news floating around, a statement was written on my behalf tonight. Read it thoroughly when it comes out and remember to not be emotional about anything related... this is obscure and strong music with passion. No weak hearted nothing and remember... I have half latin roots so use common sense.

Hail the universe.

You think they'll still get that Mayhem tour? I have my doubts...
It's hard to speculate about them being dropped from the Mayhem tour since it's still far off. Everything will depend on the reaction to the upcoming statement, which I assume will calm the situation.

It is certainly a bump in the road, but all of this controversy will also introduce more people to their music. In the short term a bunch of PC people who were never dedicated fans in the first place will criticize them, but after a while it will blow over, just as the case was regarding many other bands that flirted with extremist views and/or used Nazi symbolism in the past.

RIP Joe Young of Antiseen

Damn.... seems like a lot of deaths lately, but as all these bands age it's bound to happen.

Well, I went to the Echo for Nausea/Nails, was kindly given a guestlist spot courtesy of the lion of death and then real life happened and I had to bail out on the show. Not too happy right now.

Made an appointment to check out an apartment complex in LA AND started tracking my band's demo today. Yay for 3 day weekends at work
