Religious Group Protesting Carach Angren Show

Carach Angren's upcoming Christmas Eve performance has got some panties in a twist, with a local religious group worried about "demons influencing the youth of Amstelveen" if the show is allowed to go on.

Youtuber ovd806 just uploaded a video featuring clips of news coverage regarding the event and also commented:

"This is a compilation (first 2 parts with subtitles in English) of the news on internet/TV about the infamous performance by Carach Angren and The Monlith Deathcult in venue P60 Amstelveen, that will take place Christmas Eve in 2016.

"A local political Christian party accused the bands of being 'dark' 'develish' and a great danger for the youth of Amstelveen. They went as far as comparing Carach Angren with Anders Breivik, the idiot who shot 77 innocent men, women and children on the island Utøya.

"They also compared CA with Tristan van der Vlis, a 24-year old troubled guy who started shooting in a shopping mall, thereby killing 6 people and wounding 17 before killing himself. By listening to heavy metal people most likely could turn into another Anders or Tristan, as far as that Christian party (Christen Unie) is concerned." More...

The All-Star Jam band, which returned this past January will also be back, led by Annihilator's Jeff Waters and members from the various acts aboard performing cover tunes live.
