70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Vader Banned In Malaysia

VADER is on the list of 228 metal bands banned in Islamic Malaysia. The National Fatwa Council issued the religious decree against the "black metal cult", citing practices in which members stamp on the holy Koran, drink alcohol and freely engage in sex. Council chair Shukor Husin said the cult's practices, based on US rock band Metallica which has used symbols including an inverted cross, went against the teachings of Islam and could propel a Muslim out of the religion. However he said, merely listening to heavy metal songs was not a crime.

Agreed, Lord Agony. I say we cut our hair, pretend to be republicans and convince Bush that Nu-Metal
is apart of the "Axis of Evil". He'll believe anything you say if he thinks you are a republican christian.
Now, I'd really like to see confirmation of stomping on the Koran. I don't really think Islam is on Black
Metal's shi'ite list. (I know, god-awful pun) But maybe it will be if Bleck Metal succeeds in its ultimate
goal of total christian destruction. Now that I think of it, Islam is pretty safe on the Black Metal front.

LordAgony. 1) I spelled out and restated several times what the problem was (personal attacks). 2) You clearly post on a non Korn topic and bring up Korn after being warned about it. You clearly deserve all of the criticism you have gotten on this site because you can't even comprehend what is spelled out for you. You are a troll and nothing more.

once again i find myself confused. black metal is for the most part anti-christian. from what i know there's very little if any islam bashing. so either A. Malaysia is standing up for all versions of belife in the god of abraham(christianity, judism, islam) or B, they don't want black metal and the terrorists competing over who's more anti-christian.

lol post 6.

heh, that IS a first. deathbringer is laying down the law......

deathbringer, to my knowledge, didn't even get on Muffies case for some of the most terrible posts to arrive on these threads, but here he is telling lordagony that he has gone too far (it's a Vader thread for f***s sake)....I'm just stunned is all...good stuff.

As for Malaysia, it's not my culture so I don't feel it's my place to judge...but, this is just absurd....

I'm sure half of the people that lay down this edict in Malaysia have a secret stash of alcohol and a multitude of wives or mistresses. Just like our own people in power here, some practice what they preach but an unsettling number hide their true behavior.

I prefer to just let people comment and discuss things without intervention, but there are lines that have to be drawn. In the end, LordAgony was just asking to be banned to set up his whole little melodramatic end. I appreciate that most of the rest of you can have a discussion and don't act like attention starved 12 year olds. Enjoy! :-)

I never heard any anti-islamic metal before. Ha, well lets send all the crappiest bands we have to Malaysia that's "clean music" to their "standards" & have their passports revoked so they can never come back. Oh how I wish it were so.
