Impaled Nazarene Reacts To Banning In Germany

IMPALED NAZARENE's "Nihil" album officially entered Germany's index list A on January 17. This means that "Nihil" is officially banned in Germany. Here's an official statement from the band regarding this:

"Looking back on 2006 and 2005, being unable to play concerts in Italy, Austria, France, Poland and Germany, one can only conclude that freedom of speech and freedom of religion, things that are supposed to be the foundation of the European Union, are not existing. Your lives are terrorized by deranged catholic sects and glue sniffing communists. Braindead imbeciles tell you what you should/what you cannot listen to, read or watch. Happy fucking middle ages part 666 and fuck off."

That sucks. Germany seems to be too sensitive over there when it comes to extreme metal. Wasn't Cannibal Corpse blacklisted over there as well? Or was that just for their early albums?

Germany is oversensitive when it comes to anything about violence or hate. Of course that probably doesn't say much coming from an American - where violence is accepted in entertainment more than any place in the worrld.

Still, when I was in the gaming industry, I had to laugh at all the ridiculous sh** that companies had to do to their games to keep them off this banned list in Germany. Little tiny (low-res) soldiers in Command and Conquer had to have their red blood changed into black oil and the people were called robots and it was ok then... Oversensitive is an understatment.

what I find funny here is that when people ban Impaled Nazarene, they can only be communists - no fascists or far-right extremists. Catholic sects are by far closer to fascism than to communism - this tells a lot about the political culture and tastes of that band, which is just a pathetic bunch of nationalist & homophobic loosers. Didn't they profess "Zero tolerance" ?

I hear it is now illegal to spit in public in Germany. In fact, I think it is now officially illegal to even think about spitting in public in Germany. Worse yet, I hear it is now illegal to think PERIOD in Germany...

The "enlightened" Germans like to show that they don't hate anyone anymore, except anti-christ metal bands.
