For Christ’s Sake

Posted: October 2, 2011 in Discography

Rokkard’s eighth album, Jesus Died For Rokkard’s Sins, was one of their most controversial. Deemed by some as the first death metal album, the record was immediately banned in 47 countries due to its blasphemous artwork. After poor sales, Rokkard were forced to issue an alternative version. This was banned by 57 countries because by this time they had heard the music.

Chester has offered no apologies for the album’s content but there was some fallout. Gerald Llama, Rokkard’s lead guitarist for the previous two albums, was upset by the anti-Christian message and left the band during the recording. Antelope Jones was drafted in and was an ideal replacement, due to his Jewish background.
