Alleged Gunman In Wisconsin Temple Shooting Was Member Of Hardcore Band

According to the Daily News, the man who shot six people to death and wounded three others during a rampage at a Sikh temple in a Milwaukee suburb played guitar and sang for the hardcore band END APATHY.

Based in Nashville, North Carolina, the group — which released music on the white supremacist Label 56 — describes its message on its MySpace page as "a sad commentary on our sick society and the problems that prevent true progress."

In a 2010 interview for the Label 56 web site, Wade Michael Page, 40, said his lyrics focused on "sociological issues, religion, and how the value of human life has been degraded by being submissive to tyranny and hypocrisy that we are subjugated to."

Page is suspected of ambushing the temple in Oak Creek with a semiautomatic 9mm handgun, dressed in a white T-shirt and black pants with pockets to store ammunition. He allegedly shot people inside and outside the temple, including a police officer. A police officer with a rifle then shot Page, who died at the scene.
