H&M have decided to get in on a big trend this season by making t-shirts with the logos and images of famous rock bands on them, like Guns and Roses or Metallica.
However, there were a few lesser known bands in the mix as well, and it seems that no one knew who they were because they might not actually exist.
According to Metal Sucks, they were sent a press release by a company claiming to be Strong Scene Productions, who represent acts from the Swedish underground scene and were excited by the fact that H&M had decided to showcase some of these talents that people were not familiar with yet.
The press release said "as illustrated by the bomber jacket and t-shirts worn by the models of H & M, the new items feature logos from long-forgotten underground goth- and thrash acts such as the French LANY, Mexican MORTUS, American 'cosmic hippie metal'-gurus MYSTIC TRIANGLE and GREY from Germany – the originator of the whole symphonic female metal-genre."
They haven't stopped there however, as they've even gone and written some real songs for these fake bands, and uploaded a selection of them up on to YouTube for you to enjoy.
The song titles all seem pretty legit, with names like "Sign of the Antichrist", "Hellish Massacre", "Holocaust Tomb" and our personal favourite "Vaginal’s Juice Dripping Into Cadaverous". What does it mean, no one knows, but it sure as hell grabs your attention.
Anyway, for some reason they're trying to convince people that these bands are real, and while the website for Strong Scene Productions has been taken down, on their Facebook, they claim that this whole thing has been some sort of Spinal Tap-style art project. We're confused, to say the least...
