Metal in the Media

NERGAL GRACES THE COVER OF POLISH NEWSWEEK

340

If you live in North America, it can be easy to forget (assuming you ever even knew) that metal is, like, 1,000,000% bigger in Europe than it is here. Case in point is Nergal, who has not only been the victim of multiple baseless, Tipper Gore-esque attacks from the religious right in Poland, but is also going to be a judge on the Polish version of The Voice,  and now graces the cover of that country’s edition of Newsweek.

I don’t speak Polish, of course, but the always helpful Google Translate tells me the literal translation of the headline is “GOD HORROR HOME*, Polish the Face of the Unknown Devil.” Actually, that “unknown” bit may be the site telling me it doesn’t understand a word. But it’s clear that the story is about Nergal’s aforementioned persecution from uptight Christians. If any of you Polish readers out there (and I know there are a few of you) can offer us a better translation, we’d be much obliged. Also, please tell us what Kate Winslet has to say about Roman Polanski! Sounds juicy.

*I first saw this on Metal Injection, where one of the MI Junkies says that it’s “Homeland,” not “Home.” SO FUCK YOU, GOOGLE TRANSLATE!!!
