Sometimes, it may seem more bands are getting banned from booking shows than actually performing due to their “scary” artistic expression. While black metal, one of the most misunderstood subgenres, tend to get scrutinized the most, there’s always Disney to show no subgenre in metal is “safe.”
Disney has an extensive history banning acts including Cannibal Corpse, Machine Head, Every Time I Die, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer, letlive, Skeletonwitch, Exodus, Thy Art is Murder, and Coheed and Cambria were banned from selling an offensive shirt. The next band appears to be Ice Nine Kills for their “violent imagery.” With that being said, the group’s response is one of the best we’ve seen as they are now selling a shirt in celebration of their banishment and we are tempted to purchase one.
Read the band’s response below and check out their tour dates here:
“As many of you know a certain mouse-loving enterprise has deemed us too “evil”, to perform at a certain Orlando venue of theirs. Rather than protest, we are accepting this seemingly misguided assumption with great honor. To celebrate the banishment, we are dedicating our ‘Nightmare on the Ninth’ monthly special to the launch of TooEvilForChildren.com.
Check out our most devilish designs yet, and bask in the darkness of Lucifer, with your favorite horror-loving psychopaths. These shirts are extremely limited and will never be available online again.”
