Iranian Metal Band Ahoora Portrayed As Terrorists
Band Photo: Slayer (?)
Iranian metal band Ahoora has posted a message detailing their dealings with someone putting together a Slayer compilation album who has decided on their own accord to portray the band as terrosists. Here is the post from the band:
"Attention please! During the recording days of All in Blood with You we were contacted by a guy from Russian Slayer fan club. He told us that he was going to prepare a tribute album with worldwide participants, celebrating 25 years of slayer. We accepted the offer and recorded Blood Red off the classic Seasons in the Abyss. The track and the signed contract were sent to him. For months we were sending him emails following the project and yet there were no proper responses. Finally after almost a year we were informed that the album was going to be out early September 2008. We found a promo video about this album in You Tube. The video represents the bands involved in the Cd, Sliding the images while captioning the band names. When it comes to Ahoora, you'll see a picture of four suicide bombers with name Ahoora!!! Yes totally fuc*ing unbelievable!
"While we were unable to think of any idea that might've occurred to the guy's head; all our emails regarding this matter left unanswered. Then we found out that they have used the same picture in the booklet too! It seems that our bright guy had decided to do this as a brilliant business-wise innovation yet he had been unable to own the comprehension needed in this business. The harm that this thing will do to our image, in any size, is completely unforgivable. This IS the true terrorism within the media. Thanks for taking time to read this. Stay True!"
