U.K. grind merchants SCALPLOCK recently found themselves embroiled in controversy over the artwork adorning their latest album "Spread The Germs Over The Human Worms", according to Britain's Terrorizer. The company employed to manufacture the discs and the artwork reportedly became concerned by "the political content of the artwork and the political stance of the lyrical content," and refused to handle the album, reiterating that "in the current climate it would be unwise to become involved in an extreme project of this nature." The band's record label, Cacophonous, have therefore been forced to reconsider their position in order to make the album available, although it is understood that a second manufacturer has also declined to accept the contract.
