(RACIAL) CHAOS IN TEJAS

US brutalists Disma and Mexican ”Klansmen” Nyogthaeblisz have pulled out of Chaos In Tejas after recent accusations of racism.

.

Black metal wretches Nyogthaeblisz’s anti-Islamic/Semitic/Abrahamic stance and involvement in NSBM label Satanic Skinhead Productions was highlighted on various blogs which, after much outcry on the internet, led to headliners Antisect and The Mob threatening to not play.

.

Not long after, speculation turned to Disma’s Craig Pillard (formerly of Incantation, Goreaphobia) and his Nazi-glorifying records and interviews conducted during his time in martial-industrial/dark ambient outfit Sturmfuhrer.

.

Both bands were confirmed to play America’s largest annual punk fest but in the last few weeks Disma have pulled out  due to what organiser Timmy Hefner refers to as “the drama”, and Nyogthaeblisz have seemingly “disappeared” from the billing.

.

Pillard reportedly hasn’t responded to requests for clarification, but Disma guitarist Daryl Kahan has stated: “Disma has absolutely nothing to do with politics, nor does the band support or condone racist beliefs or Nazi ideology of any kind. Craig may have a questionable past, but he has put that behind him and is solely focused on what the band is doing now”.

.

Disma wrote on their Facebook page today as gossip and curiosity failed to subside: “Disma cancelled playing Chaos in Tejas – we were not booted. The promoter is a friend of mine and wanted us to play. We refuse to play with Mexican Nazis..putos.. haha. We will be playing a huge show in New York City with several killer / bigger bands instead.”

.
Even Florida blasphemers Black Witchery and their appearance on the bill looked shaky, but Hefner has assured: “Black Witchery let SSP do a DVD… but I firmly believe they are not an NSBM [National Socialist Black Metal] band. SSP are connected to most of the metal scene in one way or another. Craig [Pillard] has changed his ways, is what I’m told by everyone, and the fact that this band is members of [punk band] Citizens Arrest and on Profound Lore makes me believe them”.
