The Monolith Deathcult: We Are No Racists

Dutch brutal death metal band The Monolith Deathcult have issued a statement defending themselves against accusations that they are "known racists." Specificially, the band are speaking out in response to the following article posted at the Metalheads Against Racism web site by its webmaster, Mike Meier:

"The Dutch band The Monolith Deathcult is using the [Metalheads Against Racism] banner on their website. Funnily enough, there's no link to us, they've just got the banner on there. The Monolith Deathcult are known racists, I have talked to them on one of the Swiss metal message boards and made it abundantly clear what I think of them. I also know at least five people who have talked to them 'in real life' and heard them spout their racist shit. Putting the banner on their site is nothing but a hypocritical act of damage control because they're afraid nobody will book them for shows anymore now that most of the European [death metal] scene knows what a bunch of racists they are. I'm sure you'll notice they're conspicuously absent from our members list, and of course they've never contacted me about putting the banner on their site."

The Monolith Deathcult have responded to Meier's comments by issuing the following statement:

"When you write lyrics about the slaughter and killing of Christians, no one feels offended, but when you write lyrics against the radical Islam they call you a racist. That is the tolerant view of Metalheads Against Racism.

"Anyway, for the dumb, ignorant and radical left; Here we go again....

"We of The Monolith Deathcult are fully aware that certain historically accurate matters are quite sensitive in some countries.

"The Monolith Deathcult is NOT a political band. We distinguish between race and religion. We know that most people are too retarded to take a good look at our lyrics, but we refuse to lyrically adapt and limit ourselves to suit the IQ of the contemporary metal fan.

"The Monolith Deathcult treats historical happenings as they occured throughout the ages. Sometimes it happens that a topic is treated which certain people rather would not be reminded about because of the heinous deeds of their forefathers."

The Monolith Deathcult will release their sophomore album, "The White Crematorium", on January 24, 2005 through Karmageddon Media. The band, who recently announced the addition of touring member Carsten Altena to the group's ranks, released their debut album, "The Apotheosis", in 2002 through Cold Blood Industries. The band have previously toured Europe with the likes of The Crown and Skinless.

Hell yeah, f*** them metalheads against racism. Who gives a f***! let the monolith Deathcult write what they want. Metalheads should not be political, and real metalheads should have hate in their hearts and the hate non-discriminative. You should hate everything and everyone everywhere. Doesn't matter if the hated party is White, Black, Red, Yellow, or f***in' sky-blue-pink, you should be hated. (maybe more than others ;)
