Behemoth is currently on tour and there’s an Interesting situation.
After their August 12 show in Clarkston, MI, Behemoth members figured they’d get a workout in beforehand at a local YMCA.
Unfortunately, that didn’t happen because frontman Nergal was wearing a Darkthrone shirt and denied his belief in Jesus to someone who’d asked him, resulting in the band being ejected from the location.
Nergal has since posted a commentary video directly after being booted and made the following written comment.
Here’s what he said:
Jesus! This means war mate!
U can ask your buddies to censor my art, u can ask your disciples to bring me to courts, u can ask your sons to boycott Behemoth’s shows… but u can’t F*CK with my work out routine!
Darkthrone’s official Instagram commented on the matter, saying:
So @nergal69 was kicked out of a gym in the states where @behemoth are currently on tour yesterday because he was wearing a Darkthrone shirt and they asked him if he believed in Jesus Christ.
I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry when I heard about it.
The fun thing for me about all this is that the shirt he was wearing was an old original #Darkthrone shirt that I gave him about a year ago.
Have any of you had any simular problem wearing a Darkthrone shirt?
