Behemoth detained in Russia

2014-05-22 by Jordan Minnesota's 1st Choice CONTRIBUTOR | 66 Comments
Blackened death stalwarts Behemoth have been detained in Russia for issues with their visas.

Posting a statement in Polish, you can read what Nergal has to say below (translated via
blabbermouth.net)

"We've been stopped by the [Russian] immigration services for 'wrong visas.' When I said that we will not move
an inch from the club without someone from the Polish embassy, they threatened to force us out. They took us in
a bus, accompanied by 10 officers, to the building of Federal Migration Service. We tried to reach polish embassy
in Jekaterinburg but no one is answering the phone.
"If possible — please copy this message and pass it everywhere you can. We may expect a multihour hearing.
"The concert is off for sure. The only thing we want is to get back to the hotel safely and then — to Poland. No
matter how hard we try — we cannot pass it all."

Apparently they applied for the wrong type of visa. Due to the Satanic nature of their music they had to apply for a "humanitarian" visa as opposed to the "business" visa they had.

Poor satanists. Why didn't they just cut themselves and conjure up demons with blood magicks? You'd think people who promote hatred and evil with their music would be capable of handling a little maltreatment, wouldn't you?

I mean, hey—it's not all that bad. Nobody in Russia is likely to have prayed for them or anything.

Yeah, that's me: I'm a Nazi because I poked fun at satanists. Your parents are clearly siblings. I don't have to justify myself to you.

As for everyone else demanding to know "what I stand for," I'm religiously agnostic. I believe a socially just world where all human beings are treated equally—regardless of race, sex, age, sexual orientation, etc.—is possible, and I believe that the eradication of religion or worldwide war is not necessary to achieve this ideal.

I raise my children specifically not to prejudge anyone based on their politics or any of the above factors, but instead to let their character prove who they are. Unfortunately, I know damn well that even if this world (which I do not conceive as a utopia) is possible, human beings are inherently narcissistic and violent, and we will never achieve it. My own intermittent failures don't excuse me from the obligation to try.

My post here was cynical, not literal. Get over it, and yourselves.

"nuke russia"

1. they have innocent people,a number obviously like metal music so thats stupid to kill fellow metalheads
2. they have thousands of nukes to retaliate with. I don't want the world to end, even if one of my favorite black metal bands are detained
