Behemoth Being Detained In Russian Jail

Behemoth Behemoth frontman Nergal has posted the following in regards to the band being detained in Russia due to Visa violations. The band now await a court hearing as they sit in a jail cell.

"We've been stopped by the immigration services for 'wrong visas'. When I said that we will not move an inch from the club without someone from the Polish embassy, they threatened to force us out. They took us in a bus, accompanied by 10 officers, to the building of Federal Migration Service. We tried to reach Polish embassy in Jekaterinburg but no one is answering the phone. If possible – please copy this message and pass it everywhere you can. We may expect a multi-hour hearing. The concert is off for sure. The only thing we want is to get back to the hotel safely and then – to Poland. No matter how hard we try – we cannot pass it all."



UPDATE:

Behemoth has posted another update on their Facebook page from an unknown location. Here's the loose translation:

"News from Nergal: "it looks like it's going to be a normal jail. As soon as we receive the phones. At 9 am we have a court, then the judgment and possibly deportation."
