"It is disgusting, totally infuriating and frankly embarassing the lengths some people will go to in gaining themselves "social" and "political" credibility, in an age where everybody is a nobody, armed with an internet connection and a questionable education.
My music, my baby, my means of absconding all this mundane human bullshit is being slandered and jeapordized by individuals who think they know something but in reality are absolutely clueless to who I am.
My name and that of my band BÖLZER is being smeared via a number of online platforms for alledged white supremacist leanings and a glorification of nazi symbology...just yesterday we were threatened to be met with serious violent opposition once embarking on our pending tour of the eastern US. Certain persons have even pushed to have Spotify remove our band from it's listed artists...
All this in the light of what evidence you might ask? My various "nazi-era" tattoos, looking european enough to be guilty (despite numerous "dubious" claims to a partial african heritage) and an "incriminating" taste in music.
The line of decency and common sense has well and truly been overstepped, leaving me with little other option but to present a case any person of sound cognitive ability could understand:
- My name Okoi is of nigerian origin, as was my grandfather of the same moniker. Not colonialist africa, native africa. I am therefore one quarter black.
- My ever controversial tattoos are actually very benign and most definitely not of a "nazi" ilk which would be simply unthinkable given who I am. The swastika, fylfot or sunwheel has a very rich history that long preceeds it's brief albeit tragic appearance within the national socialist regime of 1940s Germany, sharing a place within countless cultures the globe over as a symbol for the solar power, eternity and the elements amongst many other cosmological and existential theories. Despite this stigmatization there are a growing number of people willing to rescue it's reputation and I am one of them. The BBC have even compiled a BASIC lesson in it's history for the poorly informed which I urge the doubtful to read before taking up further research on the subject:
http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-29644591
- I do not condone racism nor do I condone fascism. I promote intelligence and individuality, both of which cannot exist within the limited confines of the aforementioned.
- I support male rights
- I support female rights
- I support gay rights
- I definitely support animal rights.
- Neither my band nor it's members promote hate or intolerance. We are on the contrary open-minded, tolerant individuals with friends of many colours in many countries. We judge a man by his actions and conscious behaviour, not his genetic traits.
- I reserve the right to listen to whatever music I see fit as a fortunate advocate of free speech and democracy. The individual beliefs and views of an artist do not impede my enjoying his/her work. Art is the sacred bastion and to censor it would be the death of free speech.
- I retain the right to oppose and fight ignorance in all it's forms for it is the death of freedom. This would include organized religion, racism, fascism and sexism.
Above all I would like to apologize to my father Paul Ubana Jones for being forced to involve him directly in this. You have always been and remain my largest inspiration musically and personally, thank you.
Okoi Jones /// BÖLZER"

If they didn't release that last album they would have been in the clear. Now that they aren't media darlings the hipsters have turned on them and they are fair game. Blame it on crossover thrash. If the styles never mixed maybe Black Metal wouldn't have caught AIDS. Now everything is infected.

Was this post for the antifa lurkers on this page or what? I don't give a fuck if you are quarter black or have a sunwheel tattoo. Shit I don't care if your band is NS or about "ecofeminism". Black metal needs to go underground until the losers worried about it find something else to be upset about.

Had no idea Bölzer was touring over here soon. That rules! And a great response from him, too, by the way.

As for the rest, it's a new era of McCarthyism, for sure. On the bright side, metal is dangerous again.

BLACK METAL HAS TO STAY CONTROVERSIAL UNTIL HOLLYWOOD HAS EXPLOITED IT. THE MOVIE HAS TO COME OUT BEFORE THEY QUIT THROWING PEOPLE UNDER THE BUS AND RUINING CAREERS.

the excuses/justifications don't matter to reactionary politico trolls, someone brought up the tattoos a few years ago and now it is their turn for another wash in the same cycle that has Nyog in its grips. When is the next Inquisition tour? I feel like they're next for another round of witch hunting. Whack Metal 2017.

For no other reason than it is relevant and interesting given the current climate.

What's wrong with the last album? Thought "entranced by the wolfshook" has already condemned them as sturmfuhrers in sheep's clothing.

this guy credits himself with the removal of Bolzer and a bunch of other 'hate speech' bands from Spotify. Of course he can't tell the difference between GBK and Bolzer...

No idea how the album was- wasn't into the singles and never finished it- but it's a well written refutation that I completely agree with, and hell, Bolzer was great live when I saw them.

I am 1/8th black now too thanks to questionable talents of various tattoo artists over the last 22 years and the blurring and bleeding of ink lines of all my black ink tattoo work.

I also believe the solar symbols are eternal... and that these retards of the modern era (both sides, far left and far right) ...all need to fuck off and grow up and quit making ordeals and mountains out of a few pebbles on a beach... all this shit is orchestrated by higher organised and vastly wealthy institutions because keeping the peasants (us) at odd's with each other always makes it easier for them to puppet string us along and society without as much notice or opposition directly towards their agenda's.


...then again when has this primitive and stupid planet of idiots never had its witch hunt or crusade type bullshit happening? Historically there is always someone to blame for everything and so they must be punished and victimized and on and on it goes. One would think humans would have recognized this cycle by now, but nope... cause humanity is largely populated by the dumbest fucking most retarded mammals that ever managed to exist and we continue to prove it over and over and over again... sometimes managing to excel at stupidity over previous stupid exorcises of historic retardation. ...all at the beck and call of those sitting in the thrones of the elite. People must love being stupid and played like pawns on the chess board.
