Report: Walmart To Discontinue Sales Of Black Metal Music CDs
It’s been twenty years since black metal’s most controversial days, but some would say that Arkansas is twenty years behind. Apparently the news of the terrible happenings in Norway have finally hit the home of Walmart, the United States’ largest music retailer. According to reports, Walmart will no longer carry black metal CDs (IN STORE) effective immediately.
“Given Walmart’s family oriented nature and desire to only contribute to the good for our customers, we have no choice but to cease selling albums in store by bands such as Emperor, Immortal, Abazagorath, Naglfar, Melechesh and others. The incident with the Church’s Chicken restaurant in Tennessee, and the events of Norway are not conducive with the Walmart experience, and if it costs us a little money, it is a small price to pay knowing that we are putting our customers first. Customer service is job #1, and we are committed to giving our finest effort to have only the best influence on the community.” This according to Thomas Lyght who claims to be in the upper echelon of the company.
Looking back over the years and considering all of the money I’ve spent on Burzum, Darkthrone, Grand Belial’s Key, and Havohej albums at Walmart, I ‘almost’ consider this a slap in the face. Or not. According to projections this will affect the company’s bottom line by >0.0000000000002% annually.
