DEATH METAL CLOWN CHARGED WITH CHILD PORN

An American death metal musician is facing federal charges for child pornography.

.

Martin L. Evanick, the 31-year-old drummer and vocalist for the Illinois-based band The Core Of Your Nightmares, was indicted last week and is being held without bail.

.

According to Illinois prosecutors, Evanick, who performs under the stage persona of a killer clown known as “Vlad”, had sex with a minor and took photos of the minor’s genitals, in April.

.

If convicted, Evanick could get between 15 and 30 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and term of supervised release between five years and life.

The other members of The Core Of Your Nightmares have posted a statement on their Facebook page distancing themselves from Evanick’s behavior and stating: “We had no involvement or knowledge about these acts, and we in no way condone in such actions. What happened to him is unfortunate, but he brought it on himself.”

.

In a separate post, they added: “We DO NOT condone in any of the actions Vlad partook and we are appalled by his behavior. [He] never exhibited any kind of behavior that would make us suspect he would do what he did.”

.

Evanick’s bandmates have said they will continue making music without him under another name.
