Infernal Comments On Request To Remove Von Cover Song "Devil Pig"
Sweden's Infernal, which features former Necrophobic / Dark Funeral guitarist David Parland, has issued the following statement about a request to remove a cover song from their play list:
"A BIG FUCK OFF TO THE U.S. BAND ‘VON’, WHICH I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF SINCE I HEARD THEIR ‘SATANIC BLOOD’ DEMO IN 1992. WE (INFERNAL) RECORDED IN 2002 A COVER OF THE SONG ‘DEVIL PIG’ FOR THE INFERNAL MCD ‘SUMMON FORTH THE BEAST’ RELEASED BY HAMMERHEART RECORDS. THIS SONG IS NOW PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM OUR PLAYING LIST, CLAIMING IT TO BE ‘ILLEGAL’.
"NOW, THIS COVER -OF COURSE STATING IT WAS A COVER AND NOTHING ELSE, HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY, MOST LIKELY BECAUSE OF A REQUEST FROM THE RECENTLY REFORMED ‘BAND’ VON.
"AS FAR AS I KNOW, THE ARE NO LAWS PREVENTING ANYONE FROM RECORDING A COVER BY ANY BAND. NO SUCH LAWS EXIST HERE IN EUROPE, MAYBE IT IT IS DIFFERENT IN THE US???
"ANYWAY, TOO BAD THE ‘BAND’ VON CAN NOT APPRECIATE WHEN FANS OF THEM PAY HOMAGE TO THEM.
"WITHOUT THAT SOME BANDS THROUGH THE YEARS HAVE DONE COVERS (AMONG OTHERS MY ‘OWN’ BANDS DARK FUNERAL AND INFERNAL), THE CULT FOLLOWING OF THE ‘BAND’ VON WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN AS STRONG AS IT HAVE BECOME, BY FANS DOING COVERS, AND SOME SMALL UNDERGROUND LABELS HAVING RELEASED SOME ‘BOOTLEGS’ ETC.
"/D. FROM NOW ON AN EX-FAN."
