The rumored cease and desist states the OPPROBRIUM ( FORMALLY INCUBUS) track "Hunger To Power" was plagiarized in the METALLICA track "Moth Into Flame", a featured song off of the bands latest release "HARDWIRED TO SELF DESTRUCT".
OPPROBRIUM has denied any involvement in the cease and desist and BRUTAL RECORDS is closed.
METALLICA unleashed "HARDWIRED... TO SELF DESTRUCT" (DOUBLE CD), 11/18/2016 via BLACKENED RECORDINGS.
ATTENTION, ATTENTION to all Metal Magazines around the world and all our fans. It's been circulating that supposedly an "individual" is claiming that Metallica copied one of our songs called " Hunger For Power" and that this individual supposedly sent a "Cease and Desist" to Metallica.
To all OPPROBRIUM fans and Metallica Fans , we OPPROBRIUM would never send a "Cease and Desist" to Metallica. We OPPROBRIUM have nothing to do with this. We love Metallica and we are fans of Metallica ourselves.
This individual is claiming that he holds the rights to one of our song " Hunger For Power", and it's NOT TRUE. We Opprobrium hold ALL the rights to all our songs.
This individual is spreading lies behind our backs. We OPPROBRIUM are surprise concerning this, and are very sad.
WE OPPROBRIUM LOVE METALLICA AND WOULD NEVER DO SUCH A THING TO METALLICA.
OPPROBRIUM does not support this individual nor are we responsible for the actions taken by this "individual".
We OPPROBRIUM are on the side of Metallica and NOT on the side of this individual that is spreading this LIE.
Below are the links of some of the news that is spreading around the world concerning this issue.
Thanks to all OPPROBRIUM and METALLICA fans, and please keep in mind that this individual is doing this on his own and we (OPPROBRIUM) have NOTHING to do with this. This is a very sad day for our band.
Thanks-Stay Brutal-Stay Metal-\m/ -l-
