Please remember not to throw beers at Christian protesters. It seems like Vektor frontman David Disanto was reportedly arrested for throwing a beer on a Christian protester in Memphis at the Scion Rock Fest 2013. The thrash metal band has now decided to come forth and clarify a few things about the incident.

Vektor statement: "Alright alright alright. As many of you know it was an intriguing evening in Memphis after the show itself (which did rule, thanks to you all, by the way). We'd like to clarify a bit though, the blurb going around is sounding a bit misleading. 1. 'Threw a beer' does not mean 'chucked a glass bottle', or even a can/cup. (allegedly) beer was splashed out of a plastic cup, no violence. 2. He's not locked away or anything, only a misdemeanor... We are getting a well needed chuckle from all the FREE DAVE/FREE VEKTOR stuff though. Even though you guys have put a somewhat positive spin on it, it was a stressful ordeal for everyone involved last night, and all before an early morning flight. He is safe and sound though."

"We are still missing details, as none of the 3 of us actually saw what happened and haven't been able to communicate with him whatsoever since. Thanks for your amusing support, nothing remotely like this has ever happened to him (or us) so we're kind of dizzy. Pretty absurd, but not the end of the world or anything. We probably shouldn't say much more yet, and we have yet to see if or how this will affect things. It is unfortunate, but what's done is done and hopefully the consequences are as mild as the (alleged) act. Allegedly, Vektor (minus David, but only briefly)."

Municipal Waste, who also performed at the fest, shared the picture below and some humour about the whole situation: "This is Dave from Vektor. He got locked up for throwing a beer on a Christian protester at our gig last night. If you see this man buy him a beer. He seems to have lost one."

"For the record we are not promoting hate towards Christians or anyone else for that matter. We are however promoting for more beer for our buddy Dave. For the record Municipal Waste fully supports beer throwing no matter what Race, Religion, Age, Diet or Sexual Preference."

People still protest metal shows? Just have a beer instead.

This is awesome
Unhealer - 03.06.2013 at 16:30  
I'm no native speaker, but why not "spilled" beer instead of throw and cause all this confusion?
Big-Al - 03.06.2013 at 18:29

I don't know if it's the picture quality, but Dave looks quite pleased to me.
qlacs - 03.06.2013 at 19:38  
The first question arises in me, how come christian protests were attending a Vektor show... no wonder even I'd throw some stuff...

And still, Disanto fucking rules!! He's Dave Mustaine of this decade.
Nattens - 03.06.2013 at 20:01  
The alleged incident isn't what caught my attention. It's the fact that someone was actually protesting a Metal show, something I haven't seen in ages! Then again I don't live in the bible belt where things like that would be of no surprise.
Yavanna - 03.06.2013 at 20:10  
Really? Christian protestors in a metal show?
Shouldn´t they be praying at their churches/doing charity/reading the bible/whatever?

Its funny the only time Ive seen Christian protesters at a metal show was for a Megadeth/Black Sabbath tour, kindof ironic considering Dave is an outspoken Christian and some of the members of Black Sabbath claim to be as well.. so obviously these protesters dont know what they are doing.

Seeing that photo immediately made me think of this:

I'm disgusted. The metal community these days have no respect. Beer has feelings too.

I agree, bad choice of words.

The whole thing is pretty hilarious though.

Ok let me put a bit of Memphis though sadly I couldnt make it to the fest. Anyway these protesters are a MAJOR nuisance downtown and on beale street. While they dont nessecarily protest metal shows they protest EVERYTHING and are downright abusive to people. Also the cop in the picture is a complete asshole.
BloodTears - 04.06.2013 at 11:21  
According to Vektor, David's case was dropped. We should have more details released soon.
The Shape 1973 - 04.06.2013 at 11:58  
I'm still waiting to hear the beer's point of view. It must be suffering from post traumatic spill disorder.
chrisʇrenounced - 04.06.2013 at 12:02  
Hmm I'd say Mr. Dave's actions were justified here, albeit a waste of beer. Anybody who celebrates thousands of years of rape, murder, genocide, suppression of knowledge, and the perverting of humankind deserves to have things thrown at them.

It makes me think about one thing I saw the other day, there it was this little guy (he was maybe 10-12yo) and he was full of spikes and stuff, and wearing a t-shirt that says " DON´T HATE STRANGERS".
People like that are just haters, they are just there trying to make their lifes less miserable by putting the blame on someone else (in this case, the metal band that was playing, considered "evil/whatever" by them...:suicide:
Fritillaria - 04.06.2013 at 16:21  
He seems like smiling
Dark Blood - 05.06.2013 at 17:14  
I think he was doing them a favour. "here's your salvation right here"
Daniell - 12.06.2013 at 09:17  
He'd get arrested for throwing beer at anyone, regardless of their religious affiliation. And rightfully so. I'm an atheist, but I'd want the guy to get arrested if he threw a can/mug of beer.

he threw beer NOT a can or mug or bottle. Throwing beer is like throwing water at someone. So being arrested for that is totally overreacting.

Oh, I see. A completely harmless action then
