Dark metal band banned

Bay of Plenty Times - - WORLD -

Guatemalan law­mak­ers are fac­ing crit­i­cism after they moved to block a Swedish dark metal band from en­ter­ing the coun­try, call­ing it “sa­tanic”. The con­gres­sional de­cree ban­ning any­one in­volved with the group known as Mar­duk was ap­proved by an 87 to 13 vote. Ac­cord­ing to the band’s web­site, it was founded in 1990 with the aim of “cre­at­ing the most bru­tal and blas­phe­mous metal act ever”.
