Behemoth Ordered To Leave Russia

Behemoth Behemoth have been fined and ordered to leave Russia after being detained ahead of a concert in the city of Yekaterinburg.

The band was detained yesterday and taken by bus with 10 armed officers to jail to await a court hearing.

Frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski has told local media that he and seven members of the band's touring party were held in Yekaterinburg for not having the work visas needed to tour in Russia.

Each band member was fined 2,000 roubles and ordered to leave Russia. "It seemed like we actually got a really nice judge. And wise, because this was a humane decision - it felt like she sympathized with us," frontman Nergal told the Polish TV channel Polsat News.

"We actually received the minimal fine with a recommendation for how to leave Russia as quickly as possible."
