As expected, also the YouTube account of Anton Lundin-Pettersson has been discovered by the mainstream media and as a result another band is being named in various newspapers besides Rammstein: Suicide Commando (including in Belgium where Het Laatste Nieuws added the band in its reports). In the past 3 days the Trollhättan attacker liked 2 videos of the Belgian dark electro act: “Feeding My Inner Hate” album and “Hate Me”. In the aftermath of what happened these songs are somewhat prophetical.
Says Sven Ummland, a local Trollhättan resident and Side-Line reader: “So far none of the newspaper reports are directly linking the bands he listened to to the attacks, as far as inspiration goes, but it’s just a matter of time before political correctness will settle in…” Let’s hope that won’t be the case.
Other bands that might expect to be linked (since in his playlist on YouTube) are In Strict Confidence, God Module, KMFDM, Bauhaus, Acylum, Marilyn Manson, to name just a few.
In the vicious attack yesterday, 2 people were stabbed to death by the masked Anton Lundin-Pettersson: a teacher and a young boy. The incident happened in a 90% migrant school and was clearly inspired by racism. Two other people were injured.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
