Mexican metal band THUNDERSLAVE have been dropped by their label, No Remorse Records, and their debut LP, Unchain the Night, which was supposed to be releasd later this month has been removed from label’s release schedule. And all because the band decided to vandalize cemetery.
In the video below, THUNDERSLAVE members can be seen, along with members of HELLCHARGER, desecrating various mausoleums, crosses and tombstones inside Santa María Pantheon in Apodaca, Mexico.
No Remorse Records issued the statement following the incident, writing: “It was just this morning, on 11th of June, where we were informed and found out what actually happened, involving THUNDERSLAVE. A company of young people entered the Santa María Pantheon, in the municipality of Apodaca, destroying tombstones, mausoleums and crosses, which they demolished.
“From the moment that there is already a video of the cemetery vandalism (that we just saw today) it makes no sense for the label to wait on police reports and other related news, since violence and vandalism are among the things against our ethics,” statement continues.
“We always support free will but we also have the right to set those LINES according to our ethics and label’s professionalism. We also don’t want to use such acts as “advertisement”, so we have no other option than CANCELLING and DELETING this release and END our cooperation with THUNDERSLAVE and the members involved.”
