Swedish metal band Watain has responded following the MHA and IMDA's abrupt cancellation of its Singapore gig. Its response was short and sweet and of course, full of anger.
Watain appreciated their fans' continued support but was sorry that they "were robbed of their experience in the last minute by Singapore's tragic excuse for a government."
The band was, naturally, more than displeased at how the authorities had handled the matter. They are sure that their decision will cause bigger problems for themselves as fans will be more convinced now about their contempt towards those in power.
"It was an honor to meet you all yesterday and to sense the fire in your eyes and in your spirits. We look forward to the day we can perform for you without the interference from lesser men.
To the honorless rats behind the ban, rest assured that you in your cowardly act have only stirred the cauldrons of your own misfortune. If these men and women didn’t already feel mistrust and contempt towards ”authorities”, they sure do now. The flames of discontent have once again been kindled, may they scorch your heavens..."
Great. Now other countries know about our incompetent people in power. Shame shame.
