SLAYER's 'Christ Illusion' Album Recalled Following Christian Group Protests - Oct. 6, 2006 Nyay Bhushan of MonstersAndCritics.com has issued the following report:

Mumbai-based EMI Virgin India Ltd. said Friday (Oct. 6) it will recall all copies of the new SLAYER album "Christ Illusion" following protests by a Christian group, Mumbai-based Catholic Secular Forum (CSF).

Early this week, Joseph Dias, general secretary of CSF, issued a statement taking "strong exception" to the album`s cover artwork, which he said depicts "Christ with a missing eye and amputated arms." He added, "we also condemn the track, 'Skeleton Christ' as the lyrics are an insult to Christianity." The CSF also sent a memorandum to Mumbai's police commissioner, adding that the album "will affect the sensibilities of the Muslims on the track 'Jihad' and secular Indians who have respect for all faiths."

Kaveri Khullar, marketing manager, EMI India said in an interview, "We met with the CSF and were apologetic while assuring them that all copies of the album would be pulled out. We have no plans of re-issuing it in any way."

The "Christ Illusion" album had been on the shelves for only a week. Khullar did not confirm the number of units released only stating, "There weren't too many that we launched anyway."

The CSF had earlier protested against the Indian release of "The Da Vinci Code" which led the Censor Board to instruct the India distributor, Mumbai-based Sony Pictures Releasing India, to include a notice to accompany the film to explain that it was a work of fiction. To report any abusive, obscene, defamatory, racist, homophobic or threatening comments, or anything that may violate any applicable laws, please send an e-mail to [email protected] with pertinent details.

looks like i'm going to be the first post here...first off let me state that i am a Christian and a fan of metal. i can't stand slayer...but this is still ridiculous. people have rights called free speech. just because you dont agree with what someone has to say doesn't mean they can't say it. this is a pretty stupid call and a stupid move on the folks who want the album banned. get over yourselves.

It's times like these where I'm proud to be America (Yeah, i know, they're few and far between, but this is one). Crap like this would never fly in the good ol' US of A. At the same time, though, we have to recognize that this is a different culture, with different sensibilities toward speech and rights. If the recall of a Slayer album is the worst thing that happens in India, that actually puts them in the 50% most free countries in the world.
We Americans tend to take our freedoms for granted. It takes something like this to remind us that not every culture shares our appreciation for freedom of speech.

India is a very big country, it's too bad that all those people can't enjoy this Slayer album because of concerned citizens, it's too bad for Slayer that the whole country is now off limits to their album sales. This sucks all around, and this is one reason why freedom of speech is so important.
But, I will state that even freedom of speech is a limited freedom.

Even though I think this is the best Slayer release since Seasons, the anti-Jesus gimmick is very tired. Proving the point is the fact the only group up in arms is in India. It's a huge country but I can't imagine there are too many Slayer fans there in the first place. You can tell in interviews that Tom and Dave are embarrassed by the stupid lyrics although they don't come right out and say it. Tell Kerry to stick to riffs and turn lyrics over to Jeff and Tom because they are more literate.

Also can someone explain why bands can only put out only so many good albums before they just start being bad? Name one band that seriously has made a major comeback and made as good material as they did back in their main goldern era. And if you say Iron Maiden's new album is a return to form........................your opinion need not count

Dude i'm a christian and a headbanger and I love Slayer's older work. I think it's groundbreaking and that those albums are all beautiful works of art. However, there's a thin line between using satanic imagery and taking it to a level where you attack other religion. I don't know why you think it's ok to attack other religions. Would you apprieciate it if I or someone else would start attacking Satanists? I don't approve of your religion, however I can't see why you shouldn't be able to practice it. If you want to that is fine but remember you need to respect the rights of other religions.

Yet another Christian who thinks your opinion is what counts, and if anyone has an opposing opinion they are wrong. What is wrong with lyrics like 'religion is hate, religion is war'?? Oh, thats right, it offends your moronic stance that noone is allowed to say anything bad about religion (notice the song is about ALL religion, not just the Christian brainwashed). It is telling that your whole diatribe is based on OPINION, and basically states that anyone who doesn't agree with your OPINION should 'shut up'.

People like you are sickening and should be abolished from the Earth.

If EMI Virgin India Ltd. wants to ban it, then fine. That is thier deal. Different culture, I guess. Maybe a bit close-minded as well. I can't say that I agree with it, but I live in the USA. As long as I can rock out to Slayer here, that's cool with me. Different cultures have different views and feelings about religion. If they feel that the band Slayer somehow desecrates thier beleifs, then so be it I guess. You kind of have to look a little past the album`s cover artwork and lyrics to the songs and understand they are a fucking metal band. It is unfortunate that they are so close minded, but it is thier right I guess.

"You kind of have to look a little past the album`s cover artwork and lyrics to the songs and understand they are a fucking metal band."

Dude the album sucks, I did look past it and it sucks anyway, reinforcing my point on how they just use the anti-religious sentament in order to sell their bad product to morons that are stupid enough to by into that sorta crap. They are really starting to push out of the metal genre anyway. They are getting into Nu Metal and that really isn't metal at all now is it. And as far as saying restricting the freedom of speech is the first step towards no freedom, please tell me how it exactly makes things more democratic to blast something that has no other intentions than to promote peace and love among humanity? If your idea of freedom is to have everyone critize everthing someone else does without taking into concideration the feelings of the other party involved, shouldnt I be allowed to say deny the holocaust doesn't exist in certain european countries or write racists remarks and have them in some form of nationally mainstream news publication? See what I mean, it isn't right. People should have freedom as long as it does not infringe on others freedom. The whole idea of freedom is that you get to express yourself without having to fear that someone else with harm you for it, both in a physical way and a psychological way.

Yet, here you are going on and on about a band you don't like who has different views that you misconstrue as an 'attack' against religion. Heres an idea, maybe Slayer didn't write those lyrics to sell them to anti-establishment 'children'... maybe they wrote them because that is their OPINION?!?! gasp, what a concept! Of course, you are a mindreader and everyone is probably wrong, right? And, again, the solution for everyone who doesn't agree with religion is to just 'shut up'.

"Yet, here you are going on and on about a band you don't like who has different views that you misconstrue as an 'attack' against religion."

Did you even listen to the album dude, or did you not ever hear kerry talk? they HATE religion, i mean did the title of the album not make it clear enough for you?? are you that dense? they would love nothing more than to force all christians everywhere to give up their beliefs. And if that is their "opinion", why havent they ever really approached the idea until recently? If they really felt this way before, they wouldve at least kinda leveled it into their older songs more. It really is just trying to play off on kids anti establishment angesty feelings. Its obvious. Their music really does suck anymore when compared to their older material like it or not, and this is the best thing their producer could think of to help them sell albums. And if you don't agree with christianity, you should shut up seriously because what are you going to argue against people only practicing their beliefs by going to church? People like you sicken me thinking you have a right to tell me im wrong for practicing something. Your the one telling me how to do things, im not telling you to do anything else than to leave my religion alone and to not tread on me. And please do not have children? what are you five? i got an idea, why dont you not have kids cause youll probably raise them incorrectly anyway and theyll end up working at taco bell their whole lives.

You should be recalled along with everyone like you who believes that music and peoples opinions should be censored.

And wtf? Old Slayer never had anti-religious lyrics? Jesus Saves for example: "You have your own reality..Christianity." Fitting, eh?

And again, your whole diatribe is based on opinion, but you present it as fact. The album sucks. They are attacking Christianity. It is aimed at children. Etc etc...

When you see park benches with the picture of jesus in a pool of blood decapitated it is a bit of a concern for children isnt it? and dude, sorry to blow your cover to everyone, your the one persecuting me! anyone with half a brain will realize your the one persecuting my beliefs. you do not have the right to say bad things about my religion, especially when its done nothing to you!! how is it your right to persecute me, please explain, for my foolish deluded stupidity clouds my understanding so ever much! I mean i obviously am in the pressence of a genius who uses the word biggot in ever so inventive ways! I think the correct word for your farce of a rebuttle would be intolerance wouldnt it? however, your the one saying i shouldnt have the right to be deeply offended by something that attacks me.

There are some amazingly stupid people posting in this thread.

First, anyone who believes that Slayer believes in all the things they sing about, is an idiot. You really think Tom Araya, a Catholic by the way, believes in having sex with corpses? Or murdering people? You think they really worship the devil? Grow up and do a little thinking for yourself and try not to be such a weak-minded follower.

Second, if you're going to bag on someone's intelligence, learn the difference between your and you're.

Last, to whomever called Slayer 'Nu-metal' you're either A) a teenager B) dumb as a bag of hammers or C) both.

"if you don't think it is ridiculous for a christian to listen to Slayer; get the hell out."

I disagree. You don't have to agree with the lyrics or message if you like the music. I know atheists who like Stryper, for fuck's sake.

i'm not too much surprised by the number of christians that like satanic imagery here.

that's probably because satanists and christians are really the faces of a same coin, forged in lies and buried under history's shit.

god bless america the country where atheists are considered second rate citizens. fuck you all you brainwashed believers whatever the name of your god is.

You were given a brain, use it.
Live your life and create your own unique personal "religion" based on your own personal experiences. It doesn't need a name

Only the gullable follow the masses, be an individual.
