The Null Device
A new menace is threatening the impressionable youth of Malaysia; the menace of black metal
heavy-metal music with Satanic subtexts.
It is not clear how Malaysian Black Metal differs from the Norwegian variant
(presumably it'd be more anti-Islamic than anti-Christian, for one),
or whether the menace is so far just headbangers getting down to imported Burzum CDs,
but clerics say thay have found evidence of heavy metal fans being involved
in Satanic activities.
the Malaysian government, meanwhile, is taking firm steps to nip the problem
in the bud, including ordering radio stations to play less heavy metal and
requiring touring bands to submit videotapes before playing concerts.
A committee of government-appointed clerics has called for a total ban on
black metal music and associated imagery, and some schools have reportedly
began strip-searching students for tattoos linked with the subculture.
