Racist, Anti-Gay Band
"Evil Incarnate"

GLN permalink 2-6-2010

For the second time in three months the neo-Nazi heavy metal band "Evil Incarnate" was canceled after protests initiated by the Gay Liberation Network (GLN) and our allies in South Side Anti-Racist Action (ARA).

The band was to have performed tonight, Saturday, February 6th at "Memories Bar", 4358 N. Cicero, Chicago, until the bar's management received a flood of protest phone calls and pulled the plug on the show. Last December another Chicago performance by the Chicago-based band was also canceled after community protests initiated by GLN and ARA.

Evil Incarnate explicitly calls for the murder of African Americans and gays in the lyrics of its songs and employs fascist imagery.

Here is a sample of the lyrics from the song, "Killer of Faggots", which was recently released on the "Smashing Rainbows" label:

N---er lovers and faggots
Bullets in your head
N---er lovers and faggots
Now your dead

Luftwaffa nazi arial assault
Pounding from air never to halt
Flak 88's and panzer divisions
Bombing the faggots into oblivion

Bombing the n---ers into oblivion

Once again, community activism has won an important victory over the forces of hate and violence.

MANY THANKS to all of you who called Memories Bar and explained to them why they should cancel the show, and thanks to Memories Bar for doing the right thing!
