Video: Vital Remains wants cross off stage, club owner not happy

cross drama with Vital Remains

Several days ago Rhode Island death metallers Vital Remains were performing at the Haven in Orlando, Florida when frontman Brian Werner (he with healing ribs) noticed a cross hanging above the stage. Werner had the cross taken down, at which point the owner of the club told him "not to touch my cross" and took the stage to reclaim it. Werner responded that he didn't want the cross on stage while they sang songs about Satan, before launching into a tirade against Jesus. You can watch the strange, albeit amusing, incident below.

Every fat metal slob that lives in their moms basement felt guilty after the show.

I don't believe in any religion, but to bash someone else's to their face is pretty lame. won't back this back and it's a shame they weren't in the van wreck yesterday instead

These guys are all really cool dudes and saying it's a shame they weren't in a van wreck is pretty fcked up. Just because Christians use different language to bash other religions doesn't make it any better or less obnoxious to those who don't believe what they believe. Satanists are the most misunderstood and looked down upon of all and these guys are just making a statement about what they believe.

When grown men act like 12-year olds.

See......the thing about Vital Remains is..... NO BENTON, NO CARE...NO SUZUKI, NOOOOOOO FVKKING CARE!!!

Agreed. That's some petty fat teenaged metalhead shit. If you don't like a symbol such as a crucifix on "your stage" (that really belongs to the club, not the band, and I've been playing and touring for the last 16 years—I know that you should have respect for the venues you're playing) then just ignore it. It's not like it's raining bibles. And LOL@ "satanists are misunderstood!" Uhh...ok. Help everyone understand that little hissy fit the singer had.

singer should stop acting like a f*kking child. religion is a thing in this world, get over shithead.

anonymous 4/7/2015 8:41:01 PM

Jesus died for that guy......

anonymous 4/7/2015 8:53:50 PM

Lol to all these comments saying he's acting like a kid. Like he said make sure you know what bands your booking before you book them. Any black metal band would have done the same. And of course Glen Benton

Murderface should be on this

anonymous 4/8/2015 3:45:25 AM

Would you say Vital Remains got "christianized"?

anonymous 4/8/2015 9:13:39 AM

Ok, I don't know if you guys are from the northeast, but these dudes are NOT cool guys, they're fcking jerks. The one dude who's still in the band from when they were good over a decade ago (Tony) hires fcking children to tour with him so that he doesn't have to pay them more than what they need to actually survive on tour. All the while he is doing more than well for himself. I'm not ripping on him for doing well, it's for doing well at the cost of the kids he takes advantage of.

anonymous 4/8/2015 10:19:25 AM

fck Christians! They deserve it!

anonymous 4/8/2015 6:57:49 PM

yo she strong for staying up there and chanting against that crowd of neckbeards. she believes in that shit with conviction; surely much more conviction than vital whogivesafck displays in their following of satan.

^ TRUTH.
