Behemoth’s Nergal says “welcome home brothers” to Decapitated

Posted by on January 9, 2018

When Decapitated were initially arrested, Behemoth’s Nergal was one of the first to respond to their worst nightmare. During that time, he urged everyone to refrain from judgement along with explaining that his Polish tech death metal friends are a bunch of good guys and “decent and hard-working fellas.” Now, the weight (or wait?) has finally been  lifted when we heard the news late last week that all charges were dropped against the entire group. Unfortunately, this doesn’t fully clear their innocence since the case was dismissed due to the well being of the victim, which means,  the band could be prosecuted in the future. As much as we believe in their innocence, we do hope that they will receive additional clearances.

With that said, Nergal, once again, was one of the first to respond to the band’s release. He was obviously relieved and pointed out that the band “couldn’t/wouldn’t hurt a fly.” Additionally, he made a few great points by wanting to know what their next move is in their career, the status of their good name, along with getting their own justice to strike back after their lives were turned upside down for over four months. Despite the band being considered as “free,” these months have most likely caused a lot of damage both emotionally and professionally.

Nergal shared the following on his Instagram:

4 months ago, Decapitated were accused of kidnap and gang rape – subsequently they were put in a County prison and later into a local jail…and the shit hit the fan! I recall the similar case of my friends from Satyricon/Keep of Kalessin who spent 2 months in a Canadian prison because someone accused them of rape. It took 2 months of legal bureaucracy and the help of the Norwegian government to get them out. The accuser finally recanted the allegations, claiming it was a mistake. They never received compensation for financial losses or emotional trauma, just a brief apology and a document to prove their innocence (which they must always carry around with them). Somehow, from the very beginning my intuition told me my friends from Decapitated would be just fine. Now, I’m not claiming to be a prophet but I’m an optimist and a good judge of character, I know these guys and I know they couldn’t/wouldn’t hurt a fly. They are now released and have had charges dropped (without prejudice). It’s obviously a big relief to their families and friends, including myself. So…what’s next for their career after such severe defamation? What about their good name? What about their families? I hope they get their justice and strike back soon!!! And Justice For All? Well…not quite. But getting innocent people back home…HELL YES!

Last thing, friends – stay rational and reasonable and think carefully before you speak… and caste a stone at innocent people.

Welcome home brothers.”
