Russia has been in the news a lot lately for pissing off America in various sectors. Now, they’ve managed to piss off our metal fans by detaining BEHEMOTH at immigration services. How dare they?!
Frontman Nergal took to Facebook to complain about the detainment in Polish. Here’s the Google translated version of the statement:
We were stopped by immigration services under the pretext of evil. When I said that we’re not going in August from the club without the presence of someone from the Polish embassy, they threatened to deport us with strength. They took us by bus in the company of about 10 officers to the building of FMS (Federal Migration Service). Aug. tried calling the Polish Embassy in Ekaterinburg but nobody answers. If you can please copy this message and share it wherever they can,. Now we probably several hours of questioning. The gig certainly did not take place. Now I just want to quietly go back to the hotel and subsequently the Polish … The head of this wall will not break.
This update was written about two hours ago and there has yet to be an update. For all we know, they are still detained. Behemoth are constantly under scrutiny, with Nergal going on trial for blasphemy previously.
Let’s hope Nergal gets out of there safely.
…a couple of hours later, at 10 pm, Nergal posted the following update, translated by Google:
“It looks like it would be a normal arrest. Soon we get back our phones. At 9 am we have a court judgment and then maybe deportation.”
