Singaporean black metal band Devouror have just run into complaints by none other than the champions of the worldwide-anti-metal-movement…churches.
According to Malay Mail, whose full article can be read at this link: https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2019/04/15/churches-cry-foul-over-singapore-black-metal-bands-easter-gig-video/1743503, “Devouror “prides itself” in allegedly anti-Christian and pro-Satanic lyrics”, and have pointed out that the show itself has been billed as KL FOR SATAN based on Devouror’s debut EP release entitled Slay For Satan.
It’s been an interesting couple of months for the Southeast Asian scene with religious zealots complaining and succeeding in getting shows canceled – from Watain in Singapore to the recent cancelation of Sarawak Metal Regime.
To all our metal brethren in the Southeast Asian region – hold steady. This for sure continues to imply that the current climate for metal in the region is on a downwards spiral. But hopefully, all of this will one day blow over. Also, no matter how much anger, disappointment, frustration you may feel, do not take it out on any religious establishments or people. Violence is certainly not the answer amongst the face of such incredible ignorance.
