Well, I’m no veteran but I’ve seen things. I’ve seen a lot… yesterday we wrapped up a festival season at the legendary Roskilde Festival in Denmark. The show was really good, pretty tight and with a passionate response from local viking squad. I’m happy to see ANY reaction to our music really. I’m good with anything but indifference. I’m ok with a lil dose of violence, people throwing pieces of their wardrobe, ppl flipping me off, bulling me, girls showing titties… it’s ALL good! But in my almost 30 year carieer I’ve NEVER seen a couple making out right in front of stage in the epicenter of the fuckin’ pit! Holy shit! Half naked lady was kneeling in front of half naked dude blowing him for good 5-10 minutes while he was raising fists and singing along to our love songs! How cool is that hm?!? It feels good to know that Behemoth is corrupting legions on soooo many levels! LOVE IS THE LAW, DEPRAVATION LEVEL PRO 😉 @devilutiondk

Irish Councillor Calls For Behemoth To Be Banned From Performing In Limerick

Limerick Councillor Kevin Sheehan is apparently seeking to get Behemoth banned from playing in the city due to their Satanic beliefs. The band are currently set to perform with Amon Amarth at King John’s Castle in Limerick, Ireland on June 17.

Sheehan said the following on TodayFM’s “The Last Word With Matt Cooper“:

“To me, the objection is well founded and it’s quite justified. Satanism is associated with evil. And I’m a Christian. I wouldn’t be blowing my trumpet too loud about that. I’m an average Christian, if there’s such a thing. And what I am against totally is anything to do with Satanism and with evil thoughts, music or practices.”

He also added the following when asked how he would stop Behemoth from performing:

“We have laws in this country. The justice minister, Charlie Flanagan, about a month ago decided to exercise a 1999 act which allowed him to prevent a pastor from America, a guy called Steven Anderson, and he had anti-Semitic and anti-gay views, and he was prevented, because of those views, from coming to Ireland. So I was calling on the minister to give serious consideration to using the same laws to prevent these Satanic people from coming to Limerick next Monday.”

He went on to say he has “no problem” with certain concerts or music:

“I have gone to several concerts myself in my time. The last one I went to, actually, was one that you probably were there yourself. Ennio Morricone, his last tour, he played in Dublin, and I went and totally enjoyed the experience. I have gone to many concerts in my time — Michael Jackson, Neil Diamond… I have no problem with music. Music can be the soul of our lives. But not Satanic practices or thoughts or promotions. I have no facility in my life for any of that.”

Behemoth frontman Nergal has since responded:

“Nihil novi. Another attention whore which Poland’s politics is full of. But do we really need that kind of publicity? Nope. But I’m thankful regardless!”

Behemoth Premiere “Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica” Music Video

Behemoth have premiered a new video for their song “Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica.” This track is from the band’s latest album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest.”

Orion commented:

“Behemoth legions! As this ‘I Loved You At Your Darkest’ adventure continues onwards, we want to share a new video with you!

Since we began the writing process, ‘Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica’ was a stand-out contender to be featured as a single and music video. As the song evolved during rehearsal and recording, it gained this lively, furious vibe… which you hear now — thus it includes live performance elements which we’ve not done in quite some time.

We are happy to work with Grupa 13 once again — and once again, they showed their super-professional approach at every step of the shooting and video production. Two separate locations, hours of preparation, but it was all worth it. In absentia dei, we evangelize! Enjoy!”

Behemoth’s Nergal Denies Accusations Of Racist Beliefs After Being Photographed With Member Of Alleged National Socialist Black Metal Band

Behemoth’s Adam “Nergal” Darski has issued a statement to shoot down accusations of racist beliefs after being photographed with Graveland’s Rob “Rob Darken” Fudali, who allegedly has ties to the National Socialist black metal scene. Nergal’s comments, which can be read below, were in response to an email from MetalSucks, who are planning to run a story regarding the situation.

Darken has been accused of racist beliefs many times, but he claims his views are “extreme right-wing, National Socialist convictions.” These views and his apparent ties to National Socialists have led to protests in the past.

Aside from that, it was also mentioned that Nergal was seen wearing a Bölzer shirt, another band with alleged National Socialist beliefs/ties. However, Bölzer frontman KzR (Okoi Therry Jones), who has a swastika tattoo, has tried to deny these accusations.

The email also says the article will reference Nergal’s controversial Adolf Hitler quote, as well as a post he made regarding Poland losing to Senegal in the World Cup, which “seemed to tacitly endorse eugenics.” The original post was removed, but a revised one can be found HERE.

Nergal said the following about all this:

“From Nergal:

My management team today received this email below from Ben Umanov and Matt Rosenberg @ Metal Sucks.

What we have here is a media outlet trying to create a controversial story in order to get clicks by whatever means they can. In this case they are trying to interpret comments, posts, photos and even t-shirts to paint me as something I’m not. For profit. They wanted me to give them a quote for their story to tell my side of things. But, I don’t feel compelled to help them with their news business. Instead, I will address the issues that they imply with my own statement in my own words direct to those who care to read it.

First I will say this – I am my own person and am against any form of racism, fascism, discrimination or hate. As many of you know, I say a lot of crazy stuff, but I am prejudice against no human-being. I’m a controversial character, I’ll admit it…it’s part of me and sometimes I like to stir things up on purpose. When will I learn? Likely never. But, the simple fact is, I am an open-minded, loving, loyal person. I think the people that I meet in my daily life and musical travels as well as those that follow me on social media know this.

Rob Darken – I took some photos recently backstage in Poland after a Behemoth show with Rob from Graveland, a buddy and fellow Pole. I have known Rob for many years since 1992 and we hang out sometimes in Wroclaw. He did some recordings on our first and second demo tapes.

He also has a photo published in my book “Confessions Of A Heretic”. Rob and I share a love of black metal and its rich history. But aside from that, I don’t condone Rob’s personal ideals and agenda because I don’t know them. I can’t take responsibility for every person I take a photo with.

Bolzer – We’re friends and we’ve toured several times. I don’t have to say much more myself about Okoi and Bolzer other than what Okoi says himself here: https://www.facebook.com/erosatarms/posts/it-is-disgusting-totally-infuriating-and-frankly-embarassing-the-lengths-some-pe/1637456716287584/.

Eugenics – I have little knowledge and no interest in the subject. I made a comment about my countrymen not being suited to play football. It’s true, the post was removed, but I reposted moments later (still there) with an image more appropriate to the text as the previous was misconstrued. Story of my life!”
