According to Polskie Radio, Poland’s Supreme Court has ruled that Nergal from the mighty Behemoth did commit a crime back in 2007 when he called the Catholic Church “the most murderous cult on the planet” and called the Bible “a book of lies.” The case will now move to a lower court who will decide Nergal’s fate. Acccording to the law, he “could” spend up to two years in jail for this crime! Insanity!
On the decision, Nergal’s lawyer, Jacek Potulski, said this: “The decision is negative and restricts the freedom of speech. The court decided that this is allowed in a democratic system. We are still arguing that we were dealing with art, which allows more critical and radical statements.”
Let’s hope the best for Nergal! Behemoth has brought a whole new energy to their shows and new music should be heading our way soon! I don’t want anything to stop that from happening!!
