Stir Up Controversy In The South

Posted 10/27/09
TOXIC HOLOCAUST and tour partners THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are at the center of a heated debate amongst Nashville, TN's most conservative residents about the bands' performances tonight at the Christian-run Rocketown venue. A news segment from Nashville's ABC network affiliate WKRN, Channel 2 chronicling the controversy can be viewed here: http://www.wkrn.com/global/video/flash/popupplayer.asp?clipId1=4235585&flvUri=&thirdpartymrssurl=&at1=Entertainment&vt1=v&h1=Controversial%20show%20booked%20at%20Christian-themed%20Rocketown&d1=136133&redirUrl=&activePane=info&LaunchPageAdTag=homepage&clipFormat=flv&rnd=87210264.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST's Joel Grind commented on the situation: Unfortunately, the protesters here don't see the tongue-in-cheek aspect of any of this, and are taking everything at face value. What else is new? Whatever you do don't look into or research anything, and don't, god forbid, think differently. Fuck it, while we're at it, don't think at all.

To clear a few things up, there was a news clip that showed our video "Nuke the Cross" and then directly cut to lyrics for a song called "Hang the Pope". Even though we did record a cover of that song on our first demo, that song is actually by Nuclear Assault. I think that was done intentionally to make the story have more impact and more shock value.

Secondly, I want to thank the people running Rocketown for allowing this show to go on despite the protests. It just proves that being Christian and being closed minded doesn't have to be synonymous with each other.

Everyone has a right to believe in whatever they want. If it empowers you and doesn't infringe on anyone else, then I'm all for it. Sadly the herd mentality of organized religion doesn't work like that. It's too much of a threat to the very foundation on which it's based. Let's end organized religion and stop the real evil in this world.?

TOXIC HOLOCAUST are in the middle of their month-long US tour with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER. The band will then head to Europe for a three week co-headlining tour with SKELETONWITCH and GOATWHORE. This run of dates kicks-off on November 27th in the Netherlands. A listing of confirmed tour dates and cities can be found in the tour section with more to be announced soon.
