Loudwire reports that Iranian metal band Confess has been sentenced to a collective 14 1/2 years in prison, with frontman Nikan Khosravi additionally sentenced to 74 lashes. The judgement was handed down by the Revolutionary Tribunal of Tehran on July 3.

The band is currently in asylum in Norway and has released a song in response to the sentencing called "Evin," named after the prison where they were initially detained in 2015.

Further proof that the government of Iran is retarded. Just like the retards shot down one of President Trump's drones. Those idiots would get turned to dust if the USA wanted so. These fuckheads need to leave their countrymen and other countries alone.

The fact that governments like theirs still exist in this day and age makes me feel all kinds of gross. Prison time and physical abuse for playing metal? Fucking hell humanity, can you get good already?

Doesn't sound like they were sentenced because of playing metal but because of the blasphemous lyrical content of their metal. Still a crappy decision of course.

You don’t have to like him, but you can’t make a logical case for him being Hitler. He certainly isn’t a shining light for ethics, but he doesn’t go around putting people of different races he doesn’t like into death camps.

Fullauto, he may not be putting people of different races that he doesn't like into death camps, but he literally does put people of a specific race that he doesn't like into illegal internment camps and purposefully separate children from parents in some cases. He may not be Hitler, but he's a fascist like Hitler.

Lol, fair enough. I just ask because I've been reading about Alexander the Great and how he basically destroyed Darius III multiple times. Thought maybe your name was Darius and you were just playing around with it.

Yeah I know Darius III wasn't called Darius the Great, but tbh the reason I thought you were playing around with Alexander the Great was because I'd never actually heard of Darius the Great until today.

A lot of the MAGA crowd tend to forget that Iran is the way it is now because America decided they'd rather help a fundamentalist regime into power than let Iran remain a secular Communist state. Just like Afghanistan. Those messes are both America's making. How ironic.

America supports 73% of the world's dictatorships. America never intervenes for the greater good, there is always an ulterior motive. Those who drum the hardest for war are always those with the most to gain from it.

Imperialism never ended.
