Malaysia:
Norwegian rock band banned from performing

The Norwegian black metal band Mayhem was scheduled to give a performance in Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur on 4 February 2006, as part of their international concert tour through Asia, but following objections from members of Dewen Rakyat, the country’s parliament, the concert has been banned. Officials viewed their slogan “Bringing hell to your doorstep” as an endorsement of “satanic worship and drug use”.
