Cannibal Corpse Legally Banned From Russia

by / Dec. 2, 2014 3pm EST

Sons of Buffalo, Cannibal Corpse, have been legally banned from Russia, according to NME. The band’s music and lyrics have been said to “damage the mental health of children.” The city of Ufa, Russia (the capital city of the Republic of Bashkortostan, largest export: chemicals. No love for “Cyanide Assassin?” psh) have specifically banned the translation of the band’s lyrics into Russian for their descriptions of “violence, the physcial and mental abuse of people and animals, murder, and suicide.” Headbanging? Still cool. Songs with titles like “Shredded Humans,” “Frantic Disembowelment,” and “Hammer Smashed Face?” Not cool.
