Kuala Lumpur – A performance from the Singapore Black Band concert, scheduled for April 21, Easter Sunday, was canceled following a complaint filed at the Press of Malaysia by the Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM).
The event organizer confirmed that the debut of the Singapore band was canceled because the company is not interested in getting involved with the authorities and not causing harm to anyone.
In the Goatlordth Records "Facebook" commercial, the company wrote, "We are devastated by the fact that the young man's Kuala Lumpur Premiere must submit its fate to the abolition." As an organizer, we are frustrated that almost a year of effort has been pushed into nothing, Correct.
Canceling this event not only fixed a huge obstacle (sic) to us as an organizer in financial terms, but it also caused many fans of extreme music to be denied their interest. In this democratic state, we are all aware of our freedom to invest (almost) in anything. For some people, extreme music is the preferred channel. "
The statement of the CCM
On Monday, CCM Secretary-General Dr. Herman Shastry issued a statement from the council asking the authorities to explain why the Black Singapore metal band had given permission to hold a concert on Easter Sunday, April 21, one of the holiest days in Christian faith. Live in a hall in Kuala Lumpur.
The CCM statement reads:
It came to the attention of the Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM) that Singapore-based black metal band Music will be holding a live concert on April 21 in Kuala Lumpur.
Founded in 2018, the band boasts that it carries lyrical themes that are anti-Christian and pro-Satanic.
The CCM calls upon the relevant authorities to explain the basis for permitting such bands to promote their music through offensive language that ignores the feelings of others.
On top of that, the band's live performance will be on one of the holiest days of the Christian calendar, that is Easter. This would be considered offensive to the religious feelings of the Christians in Israel.
We hope that the present government will examine the matter immediately, because this is not the culture we want to promote among the youth in our country. "
Singapore's black band consists of five men with many years of experience in the industry. Literature calls its musical style "the best elimination of death."
The canceled concert was called "KL for the Devil", after the band's recently released band for Satan, which was distributed in Malaysia.
The cancellation of the Daburor concert is similar to the decision made in Singapore at the beginning of last month, when Swedish metal band Schwant's concert was canceled only a few hours ahead of schedule.
Although the Info-Comm Media Development Authority gave permission to play on Ebenex Live Space in Paya Lebar only for fans aged 18 and over, the Interior Ministry later canceled the show on concerns about band songs that promoted violence and distributed religion. The possibility of social harmony in Singapore was reason enough to cancel the concert.
Goatlordth Records expressed her disappointment even more on her Facebook page. "To tag and just catalog the fans of extreme music like" a bunch of cults "," Religion Hates PR *** "or" Dirty Liberals "is really unfair to many cheats.In this age, extreme music has already become a medium to connect so much People around the world from the trade of physical music to open air festivals here, in our beloved homeland, it is not a luxury like in Europe, where extreme music festivals take place in the open air with the full consent of the local authorities.We are definitely aware of this situation and we are probably asking too much Ask for huge and extreme open air festivals to be held here.
We're also aware that many will start telling extreme metal fans to go looking for another interest to divert things from such interests. However, if they think with discretion, passion is not something that you just suppress someone. Many of the fans of extreme music are also pillars of society. Many of them are talented professionals and are the best in their field. Many are also devoted followers of their religion (s) which many others have immense respect, as individuals. Therefore, to underestimate fans of extreme music with shameful judgment is a test of your personal values.
All in all, not only we, the organizers of the "Living Deborah" in Kuala Lumpur who are forced to surrender to our fate this time, but keep in mind that extreme music fans who have only extreme music to appeal to them, are also profoundly affected by this bias. We also want to send a message to many people out there (sic) Let us celebrate the differences in the taste of creativity and the choice of passion (sic) as we end up living in a full community of diversity.
