Thy Art is Murder have parted ways with Chris "CJ" McMahon

taim2

Australian deathcore heavyweights Thy Art is Murder announced today via the band's Instagram that vocalist Chris "CJ" McMahon was "no longer a part of Thy Art is Murder and does not feature on the record". This news broke on the same day that the band released their sixth full-length album, Godlike, via Human Warfare. 


This announcement comes on the heels of recent controversial social media posts made by McMahon back in August where he reposted a video from Matt Walsh depicting a mother questioning her child about their gender. McMahon commented that the mother in the reposted video "should be burned to death.". The post quickly garnered backlash, leading to McMahon deleting the post and claiming he would be "going off social media for good". A day later, the remaining members of Thy Art Is Murder took to Instagram to express their support for trans rights and condemn McMahon's comment. A few days later, McMahon would release his own statement seen below. 

"Hey guys, CJ here, just wanted to make this video to apologize to everybody that's been upset and offended by the video that I shared and commented horribly on Instagram a few days ago. My intentions weren't to be transphobic in any way, shape or form. And now it's gotten to the point that it really doesn't matter what my intentions were.

I apologize to the LGBTQ+ community and their allies and the people that support them. And I thought I did support them, but obviously my video that I shared and commented horribly on has proved otherwise. To my friends that I have that are trans, please don't take this as me being transphobic. My intentions were very different to be anything other than that.

And I apologize to my band that aren't standing with me and I don't blame them, so yeah, I don't know what to say. I'm sorry."

It was then on Sept 11th, that the band announced their new album's release date would be pushed back a week, releasing instead on Sept 22nd. At the time of the news, the band stated it was "production delays that have been affecting the entire industry for some time but despite our best efforts, we won't have vinyl, CD's and the remaining merch in time for the initial release date." But as of the statement today, that delay was likely due to the band re-recording the vocals on the new album with their as yet to be named new vocalist. 

McMahon joined the band in 2009 and appeared on all of their releases prior to Godlike. At this time, McMahon has yet to issue his own statement regarding his dismissal from the band.

LOL at this; band should just quit. Dude said something dumb, apologized but the band had to give in to cancel culture. People still would have come to their shows and bought merch.

Luckily those vocals are extremely generic sounding. They can have 20 comparable singers offering to fill in just by posting about it at the nearest Guitar Center.

Cancel culture and boycotting something are 2 different things you hamster brained re-t@rd. Rick, you're not that smart. The MAGA crowds USE Boycotting as a form of cancel culture. That's like saying "Kanye West didn't get cancelled, he just had people use their free speech against him.. Cancel Culture and Free Speech are different" this is the same type of logic you are using by delineating the bud light "boycott" from cancel culture.

So not spending money on a certain product or business is the same as deplatforming or ruining a career of someone popular?

anonymous 157 days ago

This move shows a couple things. 1) The remaining members of the bands support and condone child mutilations 2) The band so incredibly talentless that they prove it by showing the world they can completely re-record their entire new records vocals in a week and no one can tell the difference. Please break up.

The worst thing about his is the instagram photo. Let's see what's wrong with it: 1 - Dark colored font on black background 2 - All caps 3 - Center aligned 4 - Non standard "cool" font face 5 - Line height is atrocious (but this is the smallest issue) f*ck this band for doing this

Boycott is money based and cancel culture is slander/gossip based. They are not the same.

rick____tocchet 157 days ago

No one is out there telling bud light not to brew beer anymore. They are saying dont support it. So there is a difference.

anonymous 157 days ago

Too bad he cucked out and apologized for his reasonable comments otherwise he might have more support right now.

anonymous 157 days ago

Boycott is money based and cancel culture is slander/gossip based. They are not the same. ^^^^ I'm not even the dude from the initial argument, but I really felt the need to chime in to say that whomever wrote the statement above has either never made it all the way through high school, or is legitimately learning disabled and should have their computer usage monitored.

CJ was the only guy anyone knows in this band! Crazy to think thy people make mistakes (or did he) and you get fired/terminated without any mediation, etc. Then you post on socials as if you're serving justice to all of us for judging his actions. The irony here is now we'er judging your actions. What he said is what everyone with a brain is thinking. Bad move boys. Have some f*cking 'pride' for your band.

Everyone has rights under the law, but doesn't change the fact that trans people are mentally ill. How about we address mental illness more in America. Instead of blaming it on systemic racism, white supremacy or some other phantom menace. Or maybe we should use the BILLIONS of dollars we have sent to Ukraine and will send to Ukraine in the future on American citizens instead. You don't have to be a f*cking genius to understand this.

'Liberalism is a disease" Capitalist Democracy is a form of liberalism. Are you a communist or just an idiot?

anonymous 157 days ago

The bill of rights is also a form of liberalism. It falls under social contract theory, a key development from the enlightenment. Im sure you're against the Renaissance and Enlightenment too, even though it ended feudalism and created boundaries between the ruling and working classes. You're so f*cking dumb you cant even recognize how stupid you actually are. Im sorry, I normally don't make fun of people with mental disabilities but the shit you are saying is too dumb to let fly.

anonymous 156 days ago

"^worked double shift at Jiffy Lube to afford Motion In Less White tix" Oh no manual labor is bad. Pour me another coffee retard.

anonymous 156 days ago

"Capitalist Democracy is a form of liberalism. Are you a communist or just an idiot?" America is a constitutional republic. The only commies in this country come in the form of "liberalism." Get f*cked retard.

Thy Poopwound is Smelly

anonymous 156 days ago

Lol I'm glad you mentioned America is a republic, cause that form of government ALSO comes from.... you guessed it.. liberalism. You think 'liberalism' = the ideas of the 'liberals' you hear OAN complaining about, and you also thought you can add an 'ism' to it cause that's what tucker does to words he doesn't like (transgenderism, wokism, liberalism"), but here on planet earth "liberalism" is a real word and is an ideology from the enlightenment in which nearly all of America's governing principles were founded upon. Shit like economic systems such as capitalism, representative democracy (republics), the bill of rights, checks and balances, social contract theory, etc. So the word "liberalism" has nothing to do with the 'libs' that you hate. Your lack of education and critical thinking is showing. You suck by the way in case no one told you. Way to "own the libs" by using words you don't understand.
