Behemoth Involved In Polish Criminal Investigation For Allegedly Disrespecting National Coat Of Arms With Their Merchandise

Behemoth have gotten involved in a Polish criminal investigation due to their “Republic Of The Unfaithful” merchandise allegedly disrespecting the national coat of arms of Poland.

Adam “Nergal” Darski said the following about that:

“So here I go again. On my way to the prosecutors office in Gdansk to be questioned as a suspect in “The republic of the unfaithful” case. Me and my partner in “crime” Maciek Manticore Gruszka is showing up too. Several individuals have been already questioned including heraldists who have made their statement clear: THIS IS NOT A POLISH EMBLEM. Apparently it’s not nuff for the decision makers in the court. Are they looking for a scapegoat?

Is this another attempt of the Polish government to convict Nergal and give an example for other artists? What’s the hidden message of those actions may I ask? “Do NOT fuck with us”? “Polish emblem as well as other religious symbols are meant to be untouchable”?, “art has its strict borders and thou shalt obey Nergal!”? Weird times, weird country, weird vibes… I do NOT feel safe and comfortable here I must admit but do I feel guilty? Fuck no.

I worship the reason and I’m a massive fan of logic therefore it is OBVIOUS that the eagle that has NO crown can NOT be a Polish emblem. Period. Sadly we have stopped selling shirts with this motive (but hey, it’s ALREADY the best selling shirt in our catalogue! huurraaay!) but what we r gonna do with fans who have tattooed “The republic of the unfaithful” on their back? Shall we arrest them? Peel the skin off? Cover it up?

These rhetorical questions I’m gonna leave unanswered here and go to do what I do best: piss stupid people off with sincere and honest art and I shall NEVER give up on my freedom to do so. “Do what Thou wilt shall be the whole of the law”! Enjoy your day folks!”


Arsis Post New Album Teaser

Arsis are currently recording a new album with producer Mark Lewis. You can check out a teaser for that below:

The band commented:

“Since the conclusion of the touring cycle for Unwelcome, myself and the members of Arsis have been busy with other projects, but I’m happy to announce that a new album is almost finished!

After returning home from a tour with Necromancing The Stone last March, I began writing for the next Arsis release and soon found myself completely consumed in the process. I don’t want to make an incredibly bold statement and say something to the effect of ‘it’s our best effort since (insert the highest regarded album title here)’ but I can say that I have not been this focused on a project since working on A Diamond for Disease. I feel that this focus is reflected in the music and I look forward to the album’s completion.

We finished tracking drums last week with producer Mark Lewis in Nashville and we will be tracking the rest of the album in the coming weeks. Be on the lookout for studio videos and updates. Until then be sure to check out this pre-production video on some of our new songs that Shawn Priest put together!”
