The German group, which is known for the sexual and violent nature of its lyrics, was scheduled to perform at Minsk Arena on March 7.

Writer Nikolai Tcherginez, head of the government's Council for Morality said he regretted that tickets had already been sold for the concert, but that if the event were to take place, the program would need to be revised in order to prevent "extremism."

Belarus is a former Soviet republic and has been ruled since 1994 by President Alexander Lukashenko, who has been referred to as Europe's "last dictator." The country's Council for Morality, a state-sponsored censorship agency, was founded in 2009 and has been accused of suppressing freedom of opinion.
The group's most recent album was promoted in a special package with dildos, handcuffs and personal lubricant.

They didn't get this much crap on their last tour, wow!
oh man, we missed out on the dildo's, handcuffs and lubricant in Australia!

Strongly agreed.

Also, one of my good friends is Belarusian. We call him Tom the Belarusian. If he meets someone new, he will introduce himself as Tom the Belarusian. Drinks Vodka like it's water. Great guy.
