So, they're saying they meant to do that.

"We encourage EVERYONE to read this entire statement ..."

Did farking HR write this?

Or were "Change my mind" or "Fight me" already taken?

Because it all screams "I don't write well, and I worked really really hard on this, and I know it sucks, but you owe me."

You'd think a writer for metal injection would have listened to metal before.

Are you now or have you ever been a member of Simply Red?

"Killing Fields" was apparently already taken by a Thai metal band.

Now it's a proper Fark metal thread. Let the trolling and the gatekeeping begin!

This is an outrage. What happened to bands having upbeat, innocuous names like Joy Division? Since when do metal acts say naughty things for attention?

What's the world coming to when our death metal bands resort to controversy, poor ta St e and bad judgement?

In this statement, the drummer Bill wrote that the band members were simply trying to "operate exclusively outside the boundaries of good taste," and didn't actually sympathize with Pol Pot or the Khmer Rouge in general. He claimed that the intention of selling records and merchandise featuring a graphic painting of the mass killings was to "educate" people on what happened.

They should have stopped at "Hey man, we want to be shocking and offensive!" Claiming they're trying to "educate" people with images of mass murder, as if we can't just turn on the news and see that on an all-too-regular basis, is the same bullshiat excuse that Mancow attempted when he took heat for putting Columbine Massacre footage on his website as cynical clickbait.

I went for A Holiday in Cambodia.
The people were awesome, Ankor Wat at sunrise was very cool see. The gun ranges were an absolute blast. I got to fire an AK-47 and an M-30. I can't remember which one farked up my shoulder lol For 200$ they would let you fire an RPG at a cow. I opted out of that one.

The security regulations at the Tuol Sleng Museum pretty much guaranteed that you were going to executed. The skulls at the Killing Fields were... there are really no words.
The only place I saw flies in all of Cambodia was at the Killing Fields, it was very strange.

If you do make it to Phnom Penh, and like Rock music check out the Zeppelin Cafe. The owner is from Taiwan I think and has more vinyl than you can shake a stick at. The drinks were cheap, the food was good and there was nobody in the place. Never thought I could listen to Social Distortion on vinyl in S.E Asia!!!

yeah ok, death metal band, named themselves in reference to some real world real brutal ass death shiat. And that as somehow not just entierly predictable as basiaclly truth in advertising?

Must be a slow news day to need to get outraged about something that's not even remotely outrageous, but just entierly par for the course.

If you have to say "it's our intention to shock", you've kind of defeated the purpose.

Any explanation beyond "We're so metal!" isn't very metal.

I am still hoping someone starts a Belle Époque metal cover band named "Khmer Moulin Rouge".

Being shocking worked for mayhem's dawn of the black hearts. But being intentionally edgy, offensive or in bad taste doesn't mean shiat if the music sucks
 
2021-04-23 4:41:16 PM  
It's an incendiary band name to be sure but all that really matters to me is:
1.  Are they supportive of Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge in their lyrics like so much NSBM?
2.  If "No", then are they any good?

So, they should name themselves "Pink Fluffy Unicorns" and wait for the inevitable soccer-mom outrage?
