Malaysian Police Bust Black Metal Concert

Audrey Edwards of Malaysia's The Star has issued the following report:

Cops busted an alleged black metal concert held at a hall [in Seremban, Malaysia] and rounded up 105 youths [photo].

The group had used the name of Persatuan Cekak Silat to apply for a permit to hold a show at an association hall here.

However, they allegedly turned it into a black metal concert and danced away for more than five hours on Saturday [December 3] before the police arrived to put a stop to it.

It was learnt that the police had information that the organisers were carrying out activities that were against Islam and had planned to end their performance with a satanic worship session and sex.

However, District OCPD Asst Comm Hasanuddin Hassan said initial investigations did not indicate activities that broke the law or went against the religion.

"The raid was carried out to ensure the group did not break the law," he said, adding that the police also carried out urine tests on concert-goers.

The organisers of the show at the Negri Sembilan Ceylonese Association hall had also allowed the concert to go beyond the allocated time.

The police raided the place at 8.20pm and rounded up several youths, including four women, aged between 20 and 30 years old.

Some of them, it was learnt had come from as far as Singapore and Perlis.

ACP Hasanuddin said 30 youths had tested positive for drugs and three persons were handed over to the state religious department on suspicions they had committed acts contrary to Islam.
