Behemoth’s Nergal Starts Campaign Against Polish ‘Nonsensical Blasphemy Laws’

Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has announced crowdfuding campaign named ‘Ordo Blasfemia’ that will help artists to fight “against nonsensical blasphemy laws made by archaic Politicans.”

He says: “My name is Nergal and I am an artist from Poland. For over a decade I have been confronted with numerous attempts to permanently destroy my career on the basis that I have harmed ‘religious feelings’. It sounds absurd and I can assure you, it is.

“Many Polish artists, including myself, have been dragged into court rooms, at our own significant costs, to defend ourselves against nonsensical blasphemy laws made by archaic Politicans. Their intent is to censor anyone who does not conform to the archaic religious laws of our country. The time has come for Polish artists to fight back – join us in the Ordo Blasfemia.

“Your donation will help fund a sustainable legal challenge to squash the existing and incoming bogus prosecutions. Help us reach the target so we can distribute to other artists facing their own legal challenges.”

Behemoth is slated to release new album this Fall via Nuclear Blast Records.
