If there is a place for racism in metal, count me out!

After Phil Anselmo (ex-PANTERA) at the 22. Januar beim Dimebash in Hollywood auf der Bühne den Arm zum Hitlergruss erhoben und „white power“ had launched public – reportedly an allusion to the white wine, he drank Backstage – has to now Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn provided a video message online. Robb called Anselmo in this Video As „great tyrants“, whose actions „were damn wrong“.

Der Machine Head-Sänger, der schon unzählige Male die Bühne mit Anselmo geteilt und live des Öfteren Pantera-Songs gecovert hat, goes into detail: „I was at Dimebash and can assure, that there was no backstage Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio. The only, what you, Phil Anselmo, have drunk, war Beck’s, German beer. Maybe yes came because the joke ago? Do you understand it? German beer! white power! insanely funny!“ Flynn goes in the following, elfminütigen Video auch auf die Vergangenheit Anselmos ein und kritisiert, that he himself as well as other musicians, Angehörige der Metal-Industrie sowie der Fanszene sich nicht eher zu ähnlichen Anlässen geäussert hätten. Er wolle nicht länger Teil dieses bezeichnenden Schweigens sein. Robb further added:

„and, you know, The Crazy thing is that out of all the things that are being said, the majority of people are just, like, ‚Oh, give him a bro. Here comes the PC police now and social-justice team.‘ and, ‚You all just need to thicken your skin and stop being such pussies when somebody screams out ‚white power‘ and ’sieg heils.‘ ‚Liberal this‘ [and] ‚liberal that.‘ […] Only in the metal community is something like this so, so brushed off. If this was Chad from Nickelback, if this was Justin Bieber, if this was Tom Brady, if this was Lars f—ing Ulrich… heads would roll.“

Wenn solches Verhalten wie das von Anselmo beim Dimebash über Jahre hinweg geduldet werde, ja sogar darüber hinaus weiterhin ein Climate the Fear, Misstände anzusprechen, die Metalszene dominiere, he would no longer be a part of it. In his video Flynn criticized the metal scene in total: In keinem anderen Musikgenre sei ein Beschweigen solcher Vorfälle durch Mitmusiker und Szeneangehörige, or. the active Demanding whose by a large number of fans, conceivable. Diese Zurückhaltung, A „Icon“ to critisize, to be canceled out of fear for fun spoiler or Nestbeschmutzer, müsse aufhören. Robb concludes his statement by saying,: „Enough is enough. Es gibt im Metal keinen Platz für so etwas […]. Goodbye, Phil Anselmo! I will never play a Pantera song again in my life!“
