Here's an interesting story I found on a band apparently called Mathuluh. 

a rock band named MATHALUH, whose members were from Twin Peaks, Crestline and Rim Forest in the Arrowhead mountains, made a bootleg album in the 1970s. Supposedly, they were devil worshippers and the record was spiked with backwards Satanic lyrics. As the legend goes, a teenager who listened to the record backwards killed two other teens, then took his own life. Later, members of the band died under mysterious circumstances.

Now, I believe there may be some truth in the above story. Various theories include Metallica's band name being turned into gibberish to being made up to put people against heavy metal.  Any thoughts on what to make of this story? Thanks! Wink

Backmasking is a load of bullsh*t, and Tipper Gore can go to hell.

She can help her husband stop the rampant heat wave there.

I agree. Remember when she was angry at Frank Zappa's Jazz From Hell, only to find out it was instrumental? LOL

The legend of Mathuluh reminds me of the law suite involving Judas Priest
and the parents of two suicidal teens.  Their song "Better By You, Better Than Me"
allegedly contained the message "Do it" when played backwards.  Rob Halford made
a point in asking "do what?"

When you play anything backwards and you're listening for anything that sounds
somewhat "satanic".... you will find it.
"We are Defenders of the Faith"
