Malaysia's LANGSUYR Delay Album Release in Wake Of 'Black Metal Witch Hunt'

Malaysia's premier "oriental death metal" act LANGSUYR have pushed back the release date of their debut album, entitled "Asyik". Originally scheduled to be released in November, the album was delayed due to the "black metal witch hunt" in Malaysia, according to a press release.

LANGSUYR were already blacklisted by the Malaysian authorities in the wake of their black metal influences in the year 2000. The group, however, denied all the allegations thrown at them. Clockwork Records' decision to delay the release of the CD is being attributed to the fact that the album faced a very real possibility of being banned and ultimately never seeing the light of day.

LANGSUYR recently signed a two-album contract with Clockwork, which is distributed by Warner (Malaysia). The band shot their first video clip for the song "Sunut" last week, to be included on a VCD that will accompany the album. The VCD will also contain interviews and some gig highlights. An excerpt of all the songs can be streamed at this location.
