Censorship Lives – New Ghost Album Delayed Because of Sacrilegious Artwork
So, just to remind you, this is 2013. You'd think people would be at least near the point where they could not care what other people do or say or think. But, apparently not. Machine Head and Exodus still have bans from House of Blues venues. Seriously?
The latest is surrounding the new Ghost B.C. album Infestissumam, which has been pushed back to next week because four...yes, four...different CD manufacturers refused to print their discs because of "sacrilegious" artowork!
The NSFW illustration, inspired by the work of Gustave Dore, showcases what looks like a forest nymph orgy, but it's the religious iconography at the top that convinced manufacturers to turn off the printing press. Even though the Infestissumam booklets had all been printed, the band struggled to find anyone in the States to print the CD for them.
