Susan Carpenter of SouthFlorida.com is reporting that several heavy metal artists are taking advantage of the fact that June 6, 2006 (6/6/06) falls on a Tuesday — when new albums are typically released — to unleash their new CDs, including DEICIDE, who are renowned as much for a statement they issued in support of animal sacrifice as their music. Their new album, "The Stench of Redemption", will drop on June 6
DEICIDE aren't the only satanic group to celebrate the date. The online radio station Radio Free Satan, based in Chicago, is heading to Los Angeles, where it plans to celebrate its sixth year and also ring in the "sin-tennial" with Satan's Rockin' 666 Eve at Zen Sushi in Silver Lake..
The Anton LaVey-founded Church of Satan is hosting a satanic high mass at the Steve Allen Theater, during which Church of Satan High Priest Peter H. Gilmore will bestow his blessing upon those assembled to, as Gilmore puts it, "champion reason, pluralism, skepticism and abundant joy in life."
"June 6, 2006, is nothing to be feared, said Gilmore.
"It is just a day, like any other," Gilmore said.
"We think it's entertaining that it concerns people, but it is no more rational or plausible than avoiding stepping on cracks."
