Ghost B.C. Album Delayed Due to Offensive Artwork
Ghost B.C. might seem like relative newcomers to the international metal scene, but they're already causing controversy with their new album artwork - and it hasn't even been release yet. Their second album "Infestissumam" is due on April 9, but they've been unable to find a CD manufacturer who is happy to print the Christian orgy on the CD label. Now the release date has been forced back to April 16 to give the band more time to print and release the album properly. "We kept on getting turned down because of the CD art, which is basically a 16th century illustration of an orgy," a source close to the band told Spin. Apparantly it wasn't the orgy that means four different CD manufacturers rejected their album, but the upside-down image of Jesus Christ on the cross that caused offence. "They weren't surprised. The comment was 'Well, I thought this would have happened sooner,'" added the source. "The artwork was meant to provoke some sort of thought, but it's been one obstacle after another." To prevent further delays, the CD version of the album will now use the album cover, but the band still plan for it to appear on their deluxe album packaging. It seems the only people who really had a problem with the art were CD manufacturers, because the vinyl version has already been printed. "Vinyl manufacturers don't have a problem with the artwork. Neither does Europe," said the source. Are you offended by the Ghost B.C. artwork for their new album "Infestissumam"? Let us know what you make of it in the comments.
