I too thought it was Caesar at first.
If you want PC opinions... metal is not the place!
Indeed! Perhaps I should point out that I'm not trying to "incriminate" anyone with "evidence," if that's what you were suggesting. I find the topic interesting.
The "white finger" reference in "Dawn of the Angry" is based on admittedly shaky evidence but, given that Vincent was friends with Pierce, I'm inclined to believe that the line "my finger on the button, with what's so foreign in my sights" in the same track suggests it was probably influenced by The Turner Diaries.
I think it was Kontinual that discovered the "untermensch" comment on Covenant. The reason I suspect that it is used in a racial sense is that Giant left it out of the lyrics booklet. I might be wrong.
CoC: Morbid Angel has always been known to be pretty much overtly anti-christian, but recently, there seems to be some people who are accusing you in particular of having racist tendencies. Anything to say to those people?
DV: I think probably people misconstrue. I did some interviews where I just kind of went off the deep end, and it was really more to illustrate points of breaking the patterns in thinking. I have a real problem with this whole idea of political correctness, about thinking things just because it's something that everybody thinks and if you don't agree with everybody on all these various points, it's considered a real taboo thing. That's just as much, in my opinion, mind control and censorship a la christianity as anything else. Just because it's the left-wing controlling the media and saying that you shouldn't think these things, how's that any different than right-wing christians having their special-interest groups to say that you should think these other things? I reject all of it. I think freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom to have whatever kind of beliefs you want to regardless of whether they're fashionable at any particular time, I think that these are some of the freedoms that at least I, as an American, cherish, and I'm against censorship and thought control by any group, towards any group, for any reason. That's really where I stand on all of that.
CoC: The last time you played in Toronto, a sizeable group of Nazi skinheads showed up and pretty much ruined the show for everyone else by being assholes in the pit. What were your impressions on that evening?
DV: Well, I look at it this way. There's all kinds of people that come to our shows, regardless of where we play. There's always a diverse audience and I try to get people to overlook whatever differences they may think that they have in the interest of coming together and having a good show. Sometimes it doesn't always work that way but I try to encourage it to work that way.
I've heard some rumors about that show but I think that there are enough rumors in this thread already.
Does anyone have any of the interviews he mentions here?
