Campaign Launched By Russian Orthodox Activists To Ban CANNIBAL CORPSE

Friday, 19th September 2014

As reported by Blabbermouth, Dmitry Tsorionov, the head of “God’s Will,” a Russian Orthodox social movement, is imploring authorities in the country to cancel upcoming concerts by Florida death metallers CANNIBAL CORPSE, saying the musicians violate Russia’s anti-blasphemy law.

Tsorionov (who sometimes goes by Dmitry Enteo) said believers condemned the band’s lyrics, which promote “religious hatred” and describe in detail rape and murder of children.

In July 2013, Russia passed a new anti-blasphemy law introducing fines and possible prison sentences for offending the “feelings of religious believers.”
