Black metal band Panzerfaust gives Westboro Baptist Church the tribute it deserves

Posted by on June 6, 2014

We haven’t heard much from the Westboro Baptist Church since its founder Fred Phelps died a few months ago. But the hate group certainly made an impact on popular culture. The “God Hates Fags” guys protested Jeff Hanneman’s and Ronnie James Dio’s funerals, came out against Whitechapel, and even protested soldiers’ funerals. That’s why there’s been an obvious backlash against the group, and while on the road with Abigail Williams, Canadian black metal band Panzerfaust paid tribute to the church by pissing on it. From their Facebook:

 The Westboro Baptist Church. As an outhouse, it was employed as such. For even thinking about protesting Jeff Hanneman’s funeral, may your  mothers suck cocks in hell.

The bands guitarist/vocalist Kaizer elaborated further on Bravewords:

“Hours in to our drive to Denver in the sauna we call a van, sweating like pedophiles at recess we were when our good friend Chris Green gave us a call. He informed us that we just so happened to be within pissing proximity of everybody’s most beloved institution of all the fruits God has to bear, namely, The Westboro Baptist Church. Checking the map, we were only 20 miles past the psych ward. Needless to say, the tires screeched and we turned the Panzerkampfwagen back around and headed for the pissing grounds. Upon our arrival, we found someone so sweet as to capture this harmonious moment for us. It was on all counts civil service… Of a kind.”

“And here I was thinking we were going to a big gay, God-hating orgy.”

In the meantime, the band are still on the road with Abigail Williams and Lecherous Nocturne. You can catch them on the following dates:
