'Suicide Band' Vows To Feature Consensual Cannibalism During Festival Performance

Industrial rock band HELL ON EARTH will attempt to extend their 15 minutes of fame by featuring "consensual cannibalism" during their Saturday, March 6 performance at the first annual Sun N' Steel Metalfest in Pinellas Park, FL. Bandleader Billy Tourtelot was quoted as saying, "I haven't eaten human meat before, so it will be interesting to see what it tastes like. I understand it is quite a delicacy in some cultures."

Tourtelot went on to say that they plan to give their fans a chance to taste some of the disturbing cuisine. "We're having an online contest on www.hellonearth.net. The winner will get to play 'food critic for a day' by tasting the human meat during our show followed by his or her commentary to the audience regarding how it tastes."

The event, the first annual Sun N' Steel Metalfest, is a two-day festival that will feature over 50 extreme bands from around the world, including BODY COUNT, TESTAMENT and PRONG.

HELL ON EARTH made worldwide headlines a few weeks ago when they promised to broadcast the suicide of a terminally ill fan during an Oct. 4, 2003 concert in St. Petersburg. The band played that night, but no suicide was reported. The group's follow-up gig on Oct. 12 at the Liar's Club in Tampa attracted a whopping 20 fans, according to a report published in The Tampa Tribune.
