Policed Events of Cheyenne, WY “Zombie Fest” 09/29/2012:

The day had started out as an innocent niche festival of horror fans gathered together for an all day celebration of the popular horror sub-culture, zombies. As rain cleared and night drew near, a large crowd of these fans had made their way to the main stage of the festival to watch the night’s headlining heavy metal act Arcanium. As chants grew louder and impatience became the behavior of standard, Arcanium began their set, coming out with heavy guitars, loud drums and, profanity. The start of their set caused an immediate participation of heavy metal fans partaking in an activity considered to be normal at heavy metal concerts called “moshing”. Zombie Fest event coordinators and local police were deeply concerned and confused by what they were seeing. After a few songs had gone by, local Cheyenne WY police had driven their cars through the crowd of people in an attempt to stop this “completely unacceptable and violent behavior” that heavy metal fans consider to be normal, then proceeded to get out of their cars in riot gear carrying aluminum baseball bats and shields detaining a large portion of the crowd, lining them up on the streets to await a ride to the police station. They then informed the band’s lead singer “J-Sinn” that if he were to continue to use profanity, they would stop the band’s set. J-Sinn, offended and angered by the request, held up a sign for the audience containing one of these words, provoking them to chant it with him, therefore taunting the police. The crowd along with the rest of Arcanium had yelled it out loud with him for the police to hear. The police then told Arcanium to discontinue their performance but the band continued and at this point the police began to take action, starting with the arrest of a fan who had yelled profanity with the rest of the audience. Police turned off power to the event speaker system and lights, not knowing how to cut power to Arcanium’s equipment, then Arcanium turned up their guitars and continued to play, causing the police to use physical force. Adam, a guitarist for the band, was chased around the stage while yelling profanity until detained while Seth, the band’s bass guitarist, plugged his bass guitar back in and continued to play. The band did not stop playing as a whole until they finally cut all power and physically removed the band’s drummer Charley’s drumsticks from his hands. J-Sinn was detained by police and is currently awaiting a court date set for next month. Cheyenne fans that were also detained and arrested are shocked and in disbelief at the way the situation was handled by their local police department and plan to dispute the charges presented to them. The members of Arcanium nor do the Cheyenne WY police have any comments at this time.

WHO AM I?

Rise from the ashes and equip the mental state
You were the one that confessed to us that you killed 28
The sparks, will fly when you bludgeon her sweetly
The weapon placed so undemanding and neatly
We are your sons, we are your husbands
We’re also born with the malignant emotions

Who am I?
We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees
Who am I?
We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees

Hiding in the open but just far enough for fun
Killing these ten people ’74 to ’91
You wrote, your letters to state your opinion
To establish a label regardless of your condition
At only nine, you watched him die
You want them all to serve you in the afterlife

Who am I?
We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees
Who am I?
We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees

As I walk through this world, see the people die
Your rotting souls drift into exile
The behaviors of the human mind sicken me
You sicken me
Who am I?

Who am I?
We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees
Who am I?
We are the world and the world will bring you to your knees
