More details including tour dates etc. will be revealed once this is confirmed.

Adam “Nergal” Darski (Behemoth) On Decapitated: “I Know These Guys And I Know They Couldn’t/Wouldn’t Hurt A Fly”

This past September Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski urged fans not to jump to conclusions regarding the arrest of fellow Polish death metal band Decapitated. All four members of the group had been arrested and were facing a potential trial on charges of rape and kidnapping. Last week however, all charges were dropped against the band, with the courting concern for the well-being of the alleged victim. Nergal has since spoken publicly on the case again via his Instagram, offering the following:

“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.”

Ur Premiere Pre-Release Full-Album Stream Of Upcoming New Album “Black Vortex”

Ahead of the release of their debut album, Polish black/heavy act Ur are now steaming “Black Vortex” in its entirety below. “Black Vortex”, scheduled for a 22 December release via Arachnophobia Records, is a natural evolution of the band’s previous work, “Hail Death”.

The band’s mastermind, Gregor, comments that he treats “both releases as one whole, musically and lyrically.

Some of the tracks are philosophical in nature. They are filled with sadness and pity over human existence. Other tracks, however, are something you’d expect from UR: aggressive, primitive anthems of hatred about human greed, materialism and stupidity. Let the Black Vortex swallow you!”

Decapitated Vocalist & Bassist Formally Charged With Rape & Kidnapping & Plan To Pursue Bail

Decapitated singer Rafal Piotrowski and bassist Hubert Wiecek had their first court appearance in Spokane County on Friday for allegedly participating in a gang rape of a woman on their tour bus in Spokane on Aug. 31. With the aid of a Polish translator, Judge John Cooney communicated the charges of first-degree kidnapping and second-degree rape to Piotrowski and first-degree kidnapping and third-degree rape to Wiecek.

Waclaw Kieltyka and Michal Lysejko, the band’s bassist and drummer, had their first court appearance in Spokane on Oct. 13. Kieltyka was charged with first-degree kidnapping and second-degree rape and Lysejko was charged with first-degree kidnapping and third-degree rape.

All four band members had their bonds set at $100,000. They also aren’t allowed to talk to each other while incarcerated and were forced to surrender their passports to their attorneys.

The band has been in Spokane County Jail after being extradited from California. They were arrested Sept. 9 in Santa Ana in connection with the case and charged on Oct. 12.

Attorney Jeffry Finer, who represents Piotrowski, said the men will be pursuing bail, but are waiting on documents from Poland to “impress the court” which could take over a week.

“Among this group, there are a number of advanced degrees and zero criminal history,” Finer said.

None of the men has a criminal history in the United States, according to prosecutors, but it’s unknown if they have criminal records in Europe.

According to court documents, two women told police they were invited onto the tour bus following the show. The alleged victim of the rape said that, after talking for some time, she went into the bus bathroom where she was “grabbed and spun around to where she was facing the sink and mirror in the bathroom,” and subsequently raped by each of the members of the band.

The other woman told police that she was able to escape after kicking one of the band members in the groin.

Decapitated announced last month that it was canceling all previously announced tour dates. The band also publicly denied all accusations.

In an announcement last week, the Decapitated members stated that the charges against them were pressed “as a procedural formality” adding that “without doing so, the police would be forced to release band. This is not a conviction or any indication of guilt or innocence.”

The musicians added: “Some facts are indisputable at this point – that the original officer who took the complaint from the accuser stated, ‘I do not have probable cause that a rape occurred,’ and it’s taken a full thirty days to file charges, which is right up against the point at which the defendants would legally have had to be released.”

“The band firmly refutes the allegations and are confident that once the facts and evidence have been seen and heard, they will be released and able to return home.”
