The drummer for St. Louis-area death metal band the Core of Your Nightmares is being held with no bond on child pornography charges -- he allegedly filmed himself "engaged in sex acts" with a child and shared it on the internet. Investigators think he is a flight risk and a danger to the community. KMOV's Maggie Crane broke the news late last night.

The Core of Your Nightmares is based in Collinsville and has been playing shows for a couple years now. Early this morning the band posted a message about the arrest on its Facebook page:

As most of you may already know, our drummer Vlad has been arrested on child pornography charges; we had no involvement or knowledge about these act, and we in no way condone in such actions, what happened to him is unfortunate, but he brought it on himself.

The offenses pertaining to this arrest happened in June of 2010 and a year later in 2011, according to federal prosecutors. Linda McQuary of the St. Louis Children's Advocacy Center told KMOV it's highly possible there were more offenses -- if you have any information about Evanick, you are urged to contact your local police department.

I don't know exactly what this clown has done, but I think Maggie Crane should be arrested for being ugly and stupid.

Looks like he'll be in a prison band with the lead singer of Shattermask.

 @guyboyd The clown in question made child pornography. Last I checked that is a more serious offense than being ugly and stupid, and I think if you prosecuted Maggie Crane on those charges you'd probably lose.
