Marduk - Costa Rica's Catholic Church Asks For Respect

Costa Rica's Catholic church is calling for respect from the Swedish black metal band Marduk, who will be making an appearance in Costa Rica later this week on the Baphomet Fest.

Marduk has been strongly criticized by religious groups for its anti-Christian lyrics and even branding the band as "satanic."

Mario Segura, Catholic priest and spokesperson for the Curia Metropolitana, said "they should have more respect because they are sacred things", referring to the band's use of religious articles, like an inverted cross in its album cover art.

Segura said he considers that this type of music and message cannot encourage any good in Costa Rica's youth.

Marduk will be in Costa Rica on Thursday July 29 at the Pepper Disco Club (formerly The City). The band last made an appearance in Costa Rica in 2003.

EM3 Producciones, promoter of the event, said the Thursday show is for those 18 years of age and over and that the band will not be performing any type of ritual on stage, just perform its music.

Hey Catholic Church, show some respect to the thousands of children you've molested.

True , and the attitude of that priest is really stupid and ridiculous ...

I know this story is a couple years old but, the gig they performed in was called the "Baphomet Fest" right? So..... Why was only Marduk in particular being picked on Isn't it safe to say that all the bands were a bit on the Satanic side? That's what the name of the festival would suggest.
