Hi, what are you looking for?

Free Publicity

EMMURE's Frankie Palmeri: "Everyone Is So PC. It's Obvious I'm A Mac."

So edgy.

So edgy.

It's been a while since we spoke of our favorite person to give free publicity to this side of Phil Labonte. Palmeri is sitting at home recovering from a vocal chord injury, and I guess he's been keeping up with his colleagues.

A few days ago, the frontman of THE HELL, a satirical British deathcore act apologized for some of the band's past misogony, specifically in the song "These Butters Bitches", while also taking a shot at bands like Emmure and Attila:

“I RECENTLY GOT ASKED TO RESPOND TO THE ALLEGATIONS THAT THE HELL WERE A MISOGYNIST BAND. HERE IS MY RESPONSE.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY SOMEONE WOULD THINK WE WERE A MISOGYNIST BAND, BECAUSE OUR FIRST ALBUM CONTAINS THE WOMAN-HATING BARNSTORMER “THESE BUTTERS BITCHES”.

AT THE TIME THE BAND WAS A COLLABORATIVE STUDIO PROJECT BASED IN WATFORD AND WAS CONTRIBUTED TO BY ALL SORTS OF FUCKING IDIOTS. EITHER WAY, WHEN I JOINED THE BAND PROPERLY LATER IN 2013 FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF THE ALBUM I BECAME AWARE OF WHAT SOME OF THE COOKIE MONSTER LYRICS WERE AND HAVE NEVER PERFORMED THEM AS RECORDED.

I’M SURE I CAN SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE OTHER VOCALISTS ON THE TRACK WHEN I SAY THAT THEY DIDN’T INTEND ANY MALICE AND THAT THE SONG IS ENTIRELY TONGUE-IN-CHEEK, BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT ALRIGHT.

EVERY INTERVIEWER THAT BRINGS UP THE QUESTION GETS THE SAME “AH IT’S LIKE HOLDING A MIRROR TO THE MISOGYNY IN THE METALCORE SCENE” ANSWER AND I FEEL THAT’S JUST A TOTAL FUCKING COP-OUT, BECAUSE IT’S JUST COMPLETE BULLSHIT TO COVER OUR BACKS. WHY BOTHER? IT’S A SHITTY FUCKING SENTIMENT THAT IS IN NO WAY REPRESENTATIVE OF US AS A BAND NOW, AND WE COLLECTIVELY APOLOGISE FOR BEING MISGUIDED FUCKING CRETINS.

I HATE ALL THE FUCKING EMMURES, THE ATTILAS, EVERY SLIMY FUCKING PRICK IN A BAND THAT STANDS ON A STAGE AND BEHAVES IN A WAY THAT PROMOTES INEQUALITY AND BULLSHIT ATTITUDES.

I CAN’T REALISTICALLY STAND HERE AND TELL THEM TO TAKE THEIR FUCKING BOLLOCKS AND STUFF IT UP THEIR ARSE IF I’M NOT PREPARED TO DO THE SAME THING MYSELF.

THANKS FOR READING THIS. DON’T BE A FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.

YOU CAN FUCK BACK OFF NOW.

NAIL$“

Kudos to NAIL$ for speaking up on an issue that gets overlooked far too easily. We've covered some of the ridiculous misogyny from Emmure and Attila, namely these dumb shirts. Either Frankie has a Google alert set or somebody manually alerted him, because yesterday, he subtweeted a response, which can be summized as him basically saying "over it"

Frankie is no stranger to controversy, whether it be for his words or his fashion sensibilities. He's clearly not about to change anytime soon, but maybe he should update his references to ad campaigns that haven't been extinct for over five years.

Update: Apparently, we're reading too much into Frankie's tweets?
