Is ISIS Now Recruiting Death Metal Singers?

From The Telegraph:

A young man arrested in Dhaka as an Islamic State (Isil) volunteer to fight in Syria was a serious rock singer and guitarist with a recording contract with a British music company.

Asif Adnan, 26, was arrested in Bangladesh after he and another man were allegedly recruited by Samiun Rahman, a 24-year-old London minicab controller, to travel to Syria to join Isil militants, police said this week.

Everyone denies the charges. Adan’s band, Jahiliyyah, is signed to Kingslam Records.
