Mayhem Show in Montreal Monday

We've been taking a lot of time away from the blog and haven't been checking our email lately. Managed to catch this from our friends in Quebec in time however:

We’d like to spread the word about a show happening in Montreal in Monday, January 12, where the bands Mayhem, Watain and Revenge will be performing at Club Soda.

The band Mayhem from Norway is headlining this show. Mayhem’s drummer Hellhammer  has made racist, white supremacist and homophobic statements in past interviews.

In the book “Lords of Chaos”, Hellhammer is quoted in an interview saying,“I'll put it this way, we don't like black people here. Black metal is for white people.... I'm pretty convinced that there are differences between
races as well as everything else. I think that like animals, some races are more ... you know, like a cat is much more intelligent than a bird or a cow, or even a dog, and I think that's also the case with different races." 
We’ve attached pages of this book for context.

Later, in an interview taken from the film “Until the Light Takes Us” (2009) Hellhammer “honours” fellow musician Faust (member of the band Emperor for his murder of a gay man (or in his words, a ‘fucking faggot’) in 1992.  Please see the interview for yourself:
