Suicide Silence – probably not neo-nazis

This is an unfortunate mix up.

Suicide Silence have undergone a few transitions in their 15 years of existence. From their humble beginnings as a side-project to MySpace superstardom, from Mitch Lucker on vocals to Eddie Hermida, from deathcore to nu metal, Suicide Silence is no stranger to bold new changes. Perhaps none of these changes are quite as unexpected as the one marked by their latest shirt design, which appears to be a nod to satanist nazi dorks.

Do you see that modified septagram? Y’know, the pointy star thing beneath the band’s logo and the winged demon guy? That’s the main symbol used by the Order of Nine Angles. You might be asking the same question that Suicide Silence is asking the dingus they hired to design that t-shirt, “What is the Order of Nine Angles?” I’m glad you asked.

The ONA is an esoteric satanist group with strong social Darwinist and neo-Nazi convictions. The group divides history into Aeons, with each one indicating a different period of a dominant human civilization. According to the group, we’re nearing the end of the “Western” Aeon and soon we will enter the sixth Aeon, “the Aeon of Fire, which will be represented by the Galactic civilization in which an Aryan society shall colonize the Milky Way galaxy.” In addition to an assortment of silly rituals and spells and other such nonsense, the ONA is steadfast in their denial of the holocaust and praise for Hitler.

The Order of Nine Angles was founded in the 80s by a British neo-Nazi named David Myatt under his pseudonym “Anton Long”. David Myatt has spent most of his life deeply involved in hate groups like Combat 18, Column 88, the National Socialist Movement, and the National Democratic Freedom Movement. In 1998 David Copeland, the London Nail Bomber, was inspired to murder immigrants and minorities by his membership in Myatt’s National Socialist Movement and his pamphlets like A Practical Guide to Aryan Revolution. In recent decades, Myatt converted to Islam under the name “Abdul Aziz Ibn Myatt” so that he could incite further terrorism. Real piece of work, that guy.

Suffice to say, The ONA’s combination of satan, mysticism, and Nazis is catnip for black metal edgelords. Dozens of no-name NSBM bands have claimed affiliation with the group and several larger bands like Aosoth have cribbed direct lyrical influence from it. So how did a mainstream deathcore/nu metal band like Suicide Silence end up using ONA insignia on their shirt design? Like most mistakes, it’s probably more accurate to blame laziness rather than malice. I’m assuming that their designer grabbed a cool satanic logo from the internet and slapped it on the shirt. As a result, Suicide Silence now have a shirt that appears to endorse nazism obscured by arcane magick bullshit. It’s a pretty far cry from this:

If it makes the dudes in Suicide Silence feel any better, I’m sure it’s far more embarrassing for the handful of nazi dorks that take The ONA seriously to see a deathcore band adopt their silly logo than it is for Suicide Silence to appear sketchy for a brief moment.

If you’re the kinda weirdo that collects NSBM merch or baffling printing errors, you can purchase this hilarious mistake of a Suicide Silence shirt here before they inevitably take it down.

h/t Roman!

    Yah, maybe it’s a good thing. Maybe some black metal dorks will be so aghast that deathcore is edging into NS territory that they’ll abandon nsbm and consider not referring to women as females.

          • Dubby Fresh

            I never actually played/owned/watched/had any affiliation with Yu-Gi-Oh aside from a general awareness of it. I just saw an article today about some dude selling a bunch of those cards to pay for his daughter’s school.

            Also, I wanted to hurt gourd child a little.

            Not surprised to hear that…I worked part time in a comic shop when that show first hit the U.S. and it was massive.

            Those kids should be hitting the nostalgia phase of their lives over the next several years

      I’m Scandinavian and think the mythology and old art is fascinating, so it’s definitely annoying that I have to be very careful not to rep the “wrong” Norse shit lest I get mistaken for some Aryan Brotherhood dickhead.

      • Rob M

        I’m not Scandinavian, but I feel the same about the mythology and art. The appropriation of Scandinavian culture, as well as Celtic culture, by those assholes really have ruined it for people who just have a legitimate interest in those things

        • Óðinn

          Agreed. I am Celtic and Scandinavian. The retards, especially the fucking neo-“Pagans” and neo-Nazis, who try to define

      • Bert

        I wouldn’t worry. Anyone looking to maliciously make assumptions is about as bad as those they assume you to be and as such they should not be given any consideration.

        WEAR YOUR VALKNUT WITH PRIDE!!!!

    Maybe there’s actually a secret group of sexy goth ladies called the Order of Nine Angels that they were trying to impress.

    The O9A/David Myatt is some pretty crazy shit, even if their dealings are only 10% truth. There are actual theories that David Myatt is at least partially behind the spread of radical Islamic terrorism and jihad in the 21st associated with his conversion in the late 90’s. I’m not a conspiracy theory guy, but the stories are kind of compelling (and definitely fascinating), Some believe he is even the mysterious Western convert mentioned in this article from The Atlantic. Pretty crazy stuff:

    Story: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2015/03/what-isis-really-wants/384980/

    The O9A believes that devotees should conduct long-term immersions (“insight roles”) in other lifestyles/organizations in an effort to spread discord and chaos–Myatt apparently did it first with the British neo-Nazi movement in the 80’s-90’s before moving on to radical Islam. Since renouncing Islam, he appears to have created some new philosophy called “The Numinous Way” which he describes as “the numinous sympathy – συμπάθεια (sympatheia, benignity) – with another living being that empathy provides naturally inclines us to treat other living beings as we ourselves would wish to be treated: with fairness, compassion, honour, and dignity. It also inclines us not to judge those whom we do not know; those beyond the purveu – beyond the range of – our faculty of empathy.” (What?!)

    Crazy shit. Probably not what this band was going for, hahaha.

    • U ONLY LIVE ONCE SO GO DECLARE A FUCKIN CALIPHATE

      • Howard Dean

        Step 1: Declare caliphate
        Step 2: Kill 99% of people on the planet
        Step 3: Usher in aeon of Satanic chaos
        Step 4: ???
        Step 5: Profit

        • GrumpDumpus

          STEP 4: ZYKLON BWW

        • Dubby Fresh

          I’m having trouble wrapping my head around this Numinous Way. The idea is to basically manipulate people by acting empathetic so that you can… bend them to your Nazi will? So is he like infiltrating minority Facebook groups and befriending dudes so he can exterminate them later?

          • Howard Dean

            Either he: a) really doesn’t believe in this O9A stuff and therefore he isn’t creating a new insight role; or b) maybe he feels like he can infiltrate a group like Antifa and turn their actions more sinister(?)

            I dunno. The Numinous Way explanation he gave is basically just The Golden Rule but with three dozen extraneous words.

          • He needs an editor. And a swift kick in the asshole.

          • GoatForest

            I’m down for the latter. For the former, I recommend white out.

    Shoot, now it’s a double wammy. Wear that shirt and not only do you seem like a neo-nazi, but even worse, a suicide silence fan.

    I dunno. This band should probably just kill themselves quietly.
