Holiday cheer :D

So we remixed the infamous Crazy Catholic Mother clip into a holiday jam. It was pretty easy since she was already throwing down some old-school gangster rap:

We took our blaspheming to iTunes so you can spread your own brand of holiday cheer by playing this song at the christmas parties this year. That is to say, you can download the song there. Yes, it's true, The Arrogant Atheist is now on iTunes.

We also added a new shirt so you can drop the knowledge on the true origin of the season.

Arrest the Pope

Pope Benedict XVI, Bishop of Rome, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Sovereign of the State of the Vatican City, Servant of the Servants of God has earned a new title, less prestigious, but vastly more accurate in terms of character portrayal and actual execution of duties: Protector of Grand-Scale Child Molesters.

We're not going to outline every last detail--you're likely already very familiar with the scandal--but for more on the Pope's vile transgressions, here's a reputable news source:

No, we're here to call you to arms. The church is not above reproach. Vatican City is not immune from international law. And as the Pope has shielded from justice some of the worst and most prolific sex offenders in history, then he too is a criminal.

Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens have enlisted a legal team to hold the Pope accountable for his crimes; Join the movement to bring an evil man to judgment--a man more concerned with the image of his institution than hundreds of tormented children--and tear down the veil of secrecy and the facade of moral superiority that has protected the Catholic Church for centuries. Wear an Arrest the Pope shirt, start an uproar, and support the cause. Get it here:

Aleksi Sihvonen of Medicated (and now Norther!)

The Arrogant Atheist is proud to announce our sponsorship of Aleksi Sihvonen.

He's the front-man for Medicated, a hard-hitting, virtuosic metal band, over which Aleksi displays stunning vocal diversity. Their standout track "Scream for God" outlines the anatomy of the band rather precisely: double-bass blasts, blistering guitar riffs replete with shrieking pinch harmonics and layered lead passages against Aleksi's roar...that is, until the chorus hits, and where before there were vicious growls, we now have a haunting, nearly angelic voice, reaching a climactic and stratospheric high C. The result is heavy, visceral music with just a flair of wonder and awe: executed with technical mastery.

In light of Aleksi's unique abilities, it's no surprise that he's been asked to replace Petri Lindroos as lead vocalist in Norther, a world renowned death metal band that's toured with the likes of Children of Bodom and Dimmu Borgir. You can download his demo recording of Frozen Angel (which got him the gig) from the official Norther website.

In closing, be sure to check out Aleksi's projects; you'll be glad you did. And what of us? Well, we're proud to say we make Aleksi's stage-wear, helping him look like a metal musician should.
