LINK: Thunderball Clothing Shuttered Due to Outrage from Arch Enemy Photo Ban


Photographer J Salmeron of Metal Blast sparked a huge outpouring of support from other photographers and creatives last week after he shared how he was blacklisted by the band Arch Enemy while trying to protect his copyright. Now the clothing business at the center of the controversy has closed up shop in response to all the “hate and threats” it has received.

After reading this article and realizing that the folks still don’t have a clue as to why this happened, this is wholly appropriate. Not only that, I hope the photo community worldwide decides to back this photographer by refusing to shoot this band. Anywhere. Ever.

I bet they get the reality check then.
