Oh look, now Russia want to take a run at heavy metal. It seems some lyrics have made the Red State a little angry, and the district court has banned a translation of lyrics from American metal beasts Cannibal Corpse.
We heard from a guy who told another guy who then put it on a website that, the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) is reporting that the Oktyabrsky District Court of Ufa has ruled against the band following a filed complaint that their lyrics and album covers depict “violence, the physical and mental abuse of people and animals, murder and suicide – all accompanied by illustrations.” These words and images, they successfully argued, have the potential to damage the mental health of minors. Hey Tipper, looks like the bullshit you started all them years ago rubbed off on the enemy, sweet tits. Stock up on the nukes, collapse your economy, have those same nukes sold on the black market to gangsters so they can make dirty bombs to sell to psychopaths, but some words on a page sang into a microphone (mostly inaudible I might add) will cause harm to your children.
Last month, a Cannibal Corpse concert in Nizhny, Novgorod was stopped by police in mid-show after protests by Russian Orthodox activist groups. Three other concerts, including one in Ufa, were canceled.
Fuck you Russia, and fuck you anyone who supports this right wing bullshit. What did you think? Did you think a band called Cannibal Corpse was going to bring you top 40 hits you could rock your children to sleep with? Dumb fucks. Just another day in office for Putin and his old Red Army pals. See Tipper… see what you did? Blargidiyblarg!
