Although neither the fest nor the band have confirmed this, users are reporting that the California Deathfest (presented by the Maryland Deathfest promoters) has caved to demands by social justice workers, or SJWs, to dis-invite New Jersey old school death metal band Disma.
Disma, who boast a vocalist of Jewish heritage and write songs about slow melancholic death, are being attacked for the perception that vocalist Craig Pillard’s side project Sturmführer had right-wing overtones. Despite the utter lack of any political content in Disma lyrics, some SJWs — feeling emboldened by recent mass events and cucking by mainstream media — have urged California Deathfest to deny Disma for some time.
As this story develops, more will be posted. This incident represents the type of lynch mob mentality that Metalgate rebelled against in the first place: an intolerance for any speech but the SJW-approved, Soviet-style repetition of certain key issues as a means of seizing power.

yeah please cite sources
He’s definitely got dem eyebrows and dat nose is the Metal-Archives pic is anything to go by. He almost looks like a longhaired Ben Shapiro.
Isn’t Craig Pillard himself the vocalist?!
Shit…I’m anti-anti-Semite, but let us recognise that entire genres were, like, predicated on anti-Christianity. And now we can’t take a band with one member who was anti-Semitic in a former project?
P.S. Infest’s logo is weak. Looks like a skateboarder clothing line from ’98.
He looks predominantly Amerindian. Mongoloid strong in him.
Craig Pillard looks like a guy who if you saw him walking around Neothlithic Europe, you would just kill him as you thought he was a Neanderthal.
It’s such a laughably absurd comment.
Deathmetal.org Readership: “But Brett, all of this Metalgate stuff has no relevance! Please go back to making snarky comments about retroswedeath demos!”
“perception that vocalist Craig Pillard’s side project Sturmführer had right-wing overtones”
is that a joke
sturmfuhrer is proudly antisemitic
That SJW guy bad mouthing “racist” Disma sounds like a fascistic comic book villain. It’s a shame though because Disma was one of the only “tolerable” acts on the bill. You have hipster muzak on Friday for the “doesn’t buy hair products” crowd on Friday and a bunch of crap on Saturday which will culminate in Autopsy playing some songs from their first few releases. Better bring your umbrellas for the diarrhea storm on Sunday which will culminate in the nu/death sounds of Nader Sadek and mall grooves by Immolation who will only play 2 old songs.
Oh well, more Melodic Death… I mean Consonant Extr-emo for all!
this website, article, author, are a JOKE.
your life is a lie
