Joseph William Cardinal Tobin, the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey who handles Catholic affairs in the region, has been slow to react to an investigative report by the Lepanto Institute, a research and education organization dedicated to the defense of the Catholic Church against assaults from without as well as from within, on Seton Hall, a Catholic university.

"Seton Hall University has its own radio station, which is broadcasting day and night what's called black metal or death metal music," Institute President Michael Hichborn reports. "It's satanic, it's grotesque, it's gory, and it's violent, but it is absolutely demonic."

"Hammer Smashed Face" by Cannibal Corpse, "Grasping Air" by Yob, and "Necromania" and "Doom Mantia" by Electric Wizard, the latter song with lyrics describing a ritual involving demon worship, are examples of the kind of music that has been allowed on the air since 1986.

"It's only gotten worse and worse until it’s gotten to the point where the music itself is overtly satanic and even describes in detail the brutal murder and the brutal sacrifices of young virgins as they are being sacrificed to some dark and ancient god," Hichborn details.

The archdiocese, who reigns supreme, has the authority to bring it to a halt, but according to Christian Newswire, Cardinal Tobin's official response is the Lepanto Institute report is "misinformation." The report, though, is highly documented. 

Hichborn is encouraging people should be calling Seton Hall University and the Archdiocese of Newark demanding that the radio station, which broadcasts to audiences in New Jersey and New York City, be shut down permanently.
