Behemoth Detained by Immigration Services in Russia
Behemoth’s Nergal has posted the following message on the band’s Facebook page (shitty translation from Polish to English courtesy of Bing, which seems to be Facebook’s standard translation service):
“We were detained by immigration services under the pretext of evil [I think he means they were accused of doing something wrong or having the wrong visas. -Ed.]. When we said we would not move from the club without the presence of someone from the Polish Embassy, they threatened us with force. They took us to the bus in the company of about ten officers of the FMS (Federal Migration Service). We tried to reach to the Polish Embassy in Ekaterinburgu, but no one picks up. If you can, please copy this message and to share it wherever you can. Now we probably have several hours of questioning ahead of. The concert certainly will not place. Now we just want to quietly return to the hotel and then get back to Poland.”
This obviously sucks in a major way… and haven’t poor Behemoth already suffered enough?
We’ll continue to follow this story closely as it develops.
