Iranian Musicians Jailed, Facing Possible Execution For Playing Metal
Music is what that unite us all. No matter what the genre is it s the way of expressing your view and thought. But what if music is accused of something irrelevant.
That's exactly what's happening to Iranian band Confessmembers Nikan Siyanor Khosravi and Khosravi Arash Chemical Ilkhani. Both men were arrested by the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution and are facing charges of blasphemy, advertising against the system, running an illegal and underground band and record label promoting music considered to be Satanic, writing anti-religious lyrics and granting interviews to forbidden foreign radio stations. These serious charges resulted in the two band members, aged 23 and 21 sitting in solitary since last November until finally making bail on February 5th, paying the equivalent of $30,000 US.
The musicians are lawyering up and could face a minimum of six months to six years in prison, and worse, if they are found guilty of the blasphemy charge, they could be executed! It's easy to see how they could be charged with blasphemy.
On behalf of entire S N R M B crew we stand by the brothers of metal. Metal is for passion, heavy metal unite us all as one and moreover, its not a crime.. Let us all act as one for their safety and release
