LIFE OF AGONY's 'Love To Let You Down' Video Contains Neo-Nazi Symbol

According to Coreclub.de, a scene in the new LIFE OF AGONY video, "Love to Let You Down", includes footage of a person wearing a t-shirt bearing the SS (Schutzstaffel) Totenkopf symbol — the "Death's Head" symbol of the Nazi Elite Unit from the Third Reich.

Sony/BMG Germany — the group's German record label — have apparently removed the video from their web site, but the group's official web site is still continuing to offer the clip in streaming Windows Media and Real Media formats.

Coreclub.de has launched a petition to get the band to remove the offending image from their video. So far, the group have yet to respond to this request.

Check out the offending image (sceen capture) at this location. More information on the "Death's Head" symbol can be found here.

LIFE OF AGONY's new album, "Broken Valley", sold 7,689 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 146 on next week's The Billboard 200 chart. The CD is their first collection of new material since "Soul Searching Sun", which was released in 1997. The group's last release was a live album and DVD, entitled "River Runs Again: Live 2003". The two-disc set was recorded during the group's sold-out reunion shows at Irving Plaza in New York City on January 3-4, 2003 and was issued through SPV Records worldwide.
