Black metal band notorious for lyrics attacking Muslims nominated for Norwegian answer to the Grammys
Controversial nomination Norwegian band Taake have lyrics attacking Muslims A notoriously "anti-Islamic" band has been nominated for Norway's top metal prize. Taake are one of six nominees for a prestigious Spellemann award, despite a song that declares: "To hell with Muhammad and the Muhammadans!"
"Norway will soon awaken!" read the lyrics to Orkan (Hurricane), on Taake's album Noregs Vaapen. The Spellemanns are Norway's equivalent of the Brits or the Grammys, and Noregs Vaapen is nominated for best metal album. Elsewhere on Orkan, singer Ørjan Stedjeberg refers to Muslims' "unforgivable customs" and calls for a new "kingdom" to "shine through [the] bad years, shame and Christian times".

Death metal saving Norway ?
Wish it would save us!
Sure beats A-ha.
Could never understand how the decedents of Vikings ever permitted immigration in the first place. They had a country unto themselves, and should have kept it that way. Same goes for the rest of Scandinavia. I guess too many migrated to the USA, so they had to make up for the loses???
The Out of Africa/Arabia immigration has destroyed a lot of nations!
No doubt the liberals consider their sound as hate...but our response is that NO ONE should be censoring them - this is ART, and ART can be provocative.
If you Mooses won’t play nice!
You’ll find out Swedes aren’t made of rice!
We shred gee-tars of steel!
All fools will be brought to heel!
Better watch out you Mecca-bowers!
Sweden is not yours, it’s ours!
ok, Norwegians and Norway
Listen to it and you might change your mind! It’s horrible.
They make this band look like Mozart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD5tU-5NXd4
“No doubt the liberals consider their sound as hate...but our response is that NO ONE should be censoring them - this is ART, and ART can be provocative.”
No, you don’t get it...this only works in one direction.
Do note though that this Death Metal band considers Christianity and Islam to both be verboten, horrible things that keep the Viking culture back...
well, technically the Vikings were the biggest numbers of Immigrants — the Germanic tribes who came inthe 4th century were from that area and then the Vikings who took England, Sicily, normandy etc. too.
Not likely: as the full article points out, the band is as anti-Christian as it is anti-Muslim and annoyed that their anti-Christianity isn't getting any press. The only thing better about Nordic neo-pagans than "multicultural" secularists is that the neo-pagan program is at least logically coherent: no denouncing Christians as "homophobic" in one breath and "Islamophobic" in the next, they just hate monotheism pure and simple.
