In Aeternum Threatened With Lawsuit By Actor/Director Mel Gibson
Swedish death/black metallers IN AETERNUM and their record label, Agonia Records, have been threatened with a lawsuit by the attorneys representing actor/director Mel Gibson. Apparently, the picture used as the cover artwork for the group's "No Salvation" mini-CD was the property of the motion picture "The Passion of the Christ" — the controversial film directed by Gibson. As a result, Agonia Records and IN AETERNUM have been forced to withdraw the "No Salvation" MCD from all stores to avoid being the subject of a possible lawsuit.
Commented IN AETERNUM: "IN AETERNUM appologizes for any problems we may have caused by using the picture from the motion picture 'The Passion of the Christ'. We did not intend to interfere with any copyright laws and was not aware of the fact that it belonged to that particular motion picture. Apologies to Mel Gibson and Icon Productions."
