Dropdead at Europa (more by Keith Marlowe)

Chaos in Tejas have announced another round of bands for their 2012 shindig (first round here), including rare appearances from legendary post-hardcore band Moss Icon (a one-time only reunion), as well as Japan's Reality Crisis and Skizophrenia (their only US dates), and repeat offenders/favorites like Dropdead, Municipal Waste, Midnight, Ares Kingdom, Puerto Rico Flowers, Xeno & Oaklander, Thou, the Rival Mob, Boston Strangler, Crazy Spirit, Brain Killer, Power Trip, Wiccans (who just played one of the final shows at Emo's), and many many others. A full list of additions and the new flyer is below.

Since the original announcement, two previously announced bands have dropped off the original lineup: Mexican black metal band Nyogthaeblisz disappeared from the lineup after their anti-Islamic/Semitic/Abrahamic stance and involvement in known NSBM (National Socialist) label Satanic Skinhead was pointed out by a few blogs. That led to Antisect and The Mob even threatening to not play. Word then spread that Disma's Craig Pillard released nazi-glorifying records under the name Sturmfuhrer. Disma then dropped out as well due to "the drama" that ensued. Craig would not comment on the matter, but other members of Disma say he has changed.

In related news, Thou will hit the road for a string of dates with The Body this week on the West Coast. Both bands will also be at the inaugural Gilead Media festival (chaired by the Gilead Media label) in Oshkosh, Wi on 4/28 and 4/29 which will feature appearances from (in alphabetical order) Arms Aloft, Aseethe, Ash Borer, Baby Boy, Darger + Plague Mother, False, Fell Voices, Get Rad, Hell, Loss, Mutilation Rites, Northless, Protestant, A Scanner Darkly, and Sleepwalker. More details are available at the site.

Members of Disma claim he's changed but he remains silent?! What a load of horseshit! Clearly he hasn't changed enough to contradict that truly fucking vile interview that's been circulating.

Annapolis, MD Moss Icon? One time reunion? Nope, they've already played two reunion shows.

And he was promoting and signing that Nazi record as recently as 2010.

Best Coast is the most notorious Nazi band of them all.

Whatevz, better to catch Disma at MDF. Nyagthefefijbwknf sound like shit and I for one hope their slot is filled by Kickball Katy.

I'll believe Pillard's changed when he takes a picture kissing a black or Jewish baby (or both). Until then, he can get fucked.

Cry me a there's a guy whose a racist in a band. Big deal. I'm sure people would hate a ton of bands if they knew their political ideologies, both left and right, so you just go and enjoy the fucking music. What a bunch of pussies, especially considering it's metal.

Hail Disma!! Soldiers in the struggle against World Jewry!!

Posted by Phillip | January 4, 2012 10:33 AM

According to Craig Pillard - "I think Germany was defending itself from the plague of world usury/Jewry and was unfortunately beaten with the help of world Jewry, between Amerika, CCCP and Britain "OUR" kind was seduced into believing Hitler was a mad man.".

So he's got unpopular and offensive opinions, fine. However, read some of the comments and lyrics of someone like Ice Cube from the past. He was also involved with the Nation of Islam which has a record of being as anti-jewish as any Nazi group. He hasn't ever admitted to changing his beliefs but yet he makes kids films and comedies and has done quite nicely for himself. Why aren't people up in arms and boycotting a guy like that? Just an observation.

10:14 - you obviously know nothing of metal or the vast majority of its fans or wouldn't make such an idiotic comment. 10:24- I wasn't aware it was "liberal" to criticize one who glorified Hitler. Go fuck yourself.

I am sorry but someone who casts a blind eye, and laissez-faire attitude, towards the single greatest atrocity of modern times is an ignorant bumpkin.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 12:03 PM

12:03-true. My problem was with your use of the word "average" with its implication that many in the metal scene feel that way.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 12:16 PM

all the metal bands are sausage hillbillies

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 12:19 PM

12:03...Chaos in Tejas is a total sausage fest, but to call it the single greatest atrocity in modern times is a bit much.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 12:29 PM

Chaos in Teas rules...just kick Best Coast off and get a BUNCH more bands for their price (I am sure they think they are hot shit).

11:45, how do you know people aren't? The difference between a millionaire (with a few million fans) and an underground death metal band with a few thousand fans at most is astronomical, and it's a retarded example.

12:16 Sadly a lot of metalheads do think "who cares if they're racist, I like the music and stop making me feel guilty for listening to it." That said, Disma isn't a racist band, only Pillard is.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 3:03 PM

3:03...If people were boycotting Ice Cube it'd make papers but they're not. He still makes movies and he's still a millionaire. That's the point. Pillard is a nobody except to a few hundred people. His views don't matter. However, Ice Cube is far more mainstream and open to the public and his comments and lyrics in the past are just as bad which makes him a larger threat, but yet he still prospers.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 3:39 PM

Couldn't the same logic be applied to Disma though? Who cares if he's racist, he's got a good growl...

i love the name of each promoter by the show they booked. classic!

DISMA is more relevant in 2012 than Moss Icon, that's for sure.

Naziism should always be relevant. The problem is peoples nonchalant attitude towards it.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2012 9:18 PM

Nazism aside...does anyone really like the Jews anyway? Just saying.

Regarding 9:21pm, does anyone really like hateful, douchebag cowards anyway? Just saying.

Rascist, not rascist, this whole scene is hillbilly clown shit.

nice to know you can talk mad shit on your macbook in starbucks bro.

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2012 12:39 PM

More relevant today because the singer from Disma puts out great racist records that fascist kids just love.

Moss Icon never did that.

Same old bullshit. You can be a commie band full of terrorists who bomb government buildings and play any show in the world. But have any past with right wing and your bullshit.

Posted by Ryan | February 22, 2012 3:39 PM

If Craig had changed, he wouldn't have re-issued a Sturmfuhrer record a year prior. Let alone then refuse to comment on it. He hasn't changed at all.

Posted by Joe | March 16, 2012 7:55 PM

In other Nyogthaeblisz news...
Zola Jesus' drummer Nick Johnson (also of Jex Thoth) apparently supports Nyogthaeblisz. He sports their t-shirt at a KEXP radio session:

Confirm their logo:

Does Zola Jesus know what her drummer is repping?
Is SHE repping it, too?
I can't see how we'd stand by and let ZJ play with these kind of politics within the band. How will she explain>>>>

Viciously devastating the menial Israelite rats"

Disma is a "death metal" band. That is ALL! What are these babies crying about. The band has noting to do what these pussies are trying to say. Show me what the band is doing that makes them nazis or racists? Nothing I've ever seen. Does their artwork,lyrics or shows promote ANY type of racism. I don't think so.
So people should watch what they say and stop being followers.
All I see at their shows are people of ALL nationalities having a great time. All while DISMA is destroying bullshit wanna be death bands!
