Antropomorphia Comments On Possible "Evangelivm Nekromantia" Album Ban In Germany

Dutch death metallers Antropomorphia have reacted to a letter that label Metal Blade Records received from the German BPJM (“Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons”) that included an indexing request for the band's latest album "Evangelivm Nekromantia." Metal Blade states:

"The letter claims the cover artwork of the album as well as the song 'Fleisch' illustrate and address killings and violence in an autotelic way. Furthermore they don´t seem to be too happy about the album title. A newspiece in German can be found at this location."

Comments the band: “We've made certain people nervous and uncomfortable with our music and lyrical content. In order to 'protect' the children, it's quite possible 'Evangelivm Nekromantia' will be banned and removed from German stores. Through their ridiculous and hypocrite way of thinking they are not letting people use their own intelligence or freedom of choice, this in an era where you turn on the news and see the world's vile and repulsive excrements in full HD. These people are nothing more than a bunch of pitiful sheep! They might think this ban will be castigation but it will only strengthen us in our opposition towards these sad shallow people that crowd the world with their insignificant lives. To us, it's the perfect representation of people without perception other than a retarded opinion about an artistic expression.”

In other news, Antropomorphia has just finished another video shoot, this time around for the song "Debauchery In Putrefaction." You can also still watch the video for "Psuchagogia" below.
