The Westboro Baptist
trolls Church have been sticking their nose in metal's business quite a bit lately. They famously said they would picket Jeff Hanneman's memorial, but it was all talk. They no-showed.
Now, for some reason, they have reviewed the latest album from The Dillinger Escape Plan, One Of Us Is The Killer.
Kerrang! magazine got a hold of longtime Westboro member Steve Drain and played the lead single "Prancer," for him and (shocker) he wasn't into it. Here's his review:
"Dude needs a hug. God has put his standard in the Earth, and all of the problems that this song tries to sound a 'yawp' about come as a result of the rampant disobedience of God. They have become vain in their imaginations and their foolish hearts were darkened. They worship the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever."
For his part, Dillinger guitarist Ben Weinman couldn't have been happier with the review, posting on his Facebook page:
Of all the great reviews we've seen of the new songs on ONE OF US IS THE KILLER, this one from the WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH may be the most informed and insightful.
Weinamn is famously Jewish (here he is at his Bar Mitzvah, and here with Jewish ambassador Jackie Mason), so he's going to hell anyway!
