Metal label Nuclear Blast has dropped its pursuit of people filesharing music by one of its artists, All Shall Perish, after vociferous protests by the band. “All Shall Perish was not consulted about this course of action and did not wish to participate in it whatsoever,” says the label in a statement, accepting the band’s position. However, Nuclear Blast is keen to explain why it decided to seek details of filesharers in the first place: for “people to be aware that the peer-to-peer file sharing is illegal and hurts the bands and record companies they love… Every sale helps support metal and the people that work hard to bring metal to the masses.”
