Antropomorphia's newest album Evangelivm Nekromantia might get banned in Germany? ... What? ... In this day and age we really still entertain such restrictions of art?

Apparently, and the band has reacted to a letter their label Metal Blade Records received from the German BPJM (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) that included an indexing request for their album.

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 news story in German can be found HERE.

The band had the following comments:

"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 excrement's 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."

Index in Germany means the album is x-rated. You can still purchase it legally, it's just not to be displayed openly in a store. Which wouldn't be much of a loss as that cover looks horrible.

I wonder what those people would have to say about their album 'Pure' then.

It is one ugly cover. Is that one sucking the boob? Either way, it reminds me of the problems Cannibal Corpse had with some of their covers. It shouldn't happen.

Btw, it's a pity that most of you don't understand German. The letter is hilarious!

"This CD has no other purpose than glorifying necromancy and necrophilia (sexual intercourse with dead people)."

Yep, no other purpose.

Nope that is a corpse being cradled between the boobs of the necromantic woman.
But I can see why think it's sucking it, because the picture is so small here. If you see the cd or LP of it it is much clearer.

Or about the e.p. Nekromantic Lovesongs.

Btw, only in Germany such a thing is possible when it comes to Western European countries.

Ways to get famous, number 852835:

Release an album with terrible album artwork featuring nudity, corpses, and vague religious blasphemy. Wait for Germany to ban it. Profit.

Hilarious that this would get banned. even more hilarious that there's a department solely dedicated to making sure young people aren't "harmed". fucking Germany.

Well, maybe Ze Germans will learn what gid's PMRC did... the stupid warning sticker just catapulted album sales.

The PMRC never had any power outside of getting that stupid "parental advisory" sticker put on metal and rap albums. They also weren't a government entity like the one Germany has. But yeah, close enough I guess.
