Behemoth frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski, no stranger to legal troubles (most famously running afoul of the Supreme Court in his native Poland for his controversial views on Christianity some years back), has spoken out about Decapitated’s arrest for kidnapping and the accusations of gang rape from a Washington woman. He basically tells everyone to just wait for the facts to come out in the case before you start judging.

Speaking on the matter via his Instragram and Facebook account Nergal states:

"Touring life may get crazy every now and then. I was not on the Decapitated bus. I didn’t talk to anyone and I do not know the other people involved. I don’t want to speculate but I have learned in both my personal life and in many years of touring that people are complicated. I personally have never forced anyone to have sex with me and there should be a NO TOLERANCE policy used in such cases, no question.

"But I do know the Decapitated guys, and in my experience, they are bunch of good, decent and hard-working fellas. IF in fact they committed a crime, they will have to deal with the consequences but please keep in mind that only some of the people involved have had their voices heard thus far. So, PLEASE take a breath, count to 10 and THINK before you start stigmatising, accusing and judging them publicly for something they may not have even done!

"I was arrested, I spent night in a Russian jail where my passport and phone were confiscated. I know the feeling and I can only imagine what horror and trauma my friends and everyone involved are going through now. I profoundly hope this whole case will end up positive for them as soon as possible and they will return home safe. Stay strong and hold on tight!”

The band themselves issued this statement earlier this week, denying the accusations.

And justice for all? Touring life may get crazy every now and then. I was not on the Decapitated bus. I didn't talk to anyone and I do not know the other people involved. I don't want to speculate but I have learned in both my personal life and in many years of touring that people are complicated. I personally have never forced anyone to have sex with me and there should be a NO TOLERANCE policy used in such cases, no question. But I do know the Decapitated guys, and in my experience, they are bunch of good, decent and hard-working fellas.

"Not in MY America!" - SJWs

LOL. You should see the comments over at UltimateGuitar. The general sentiment is that of anger and incredulity that anyone would even think to defend the band. "Didn't you hear? They are accused of RAPE. They are men. Obviously they did it. Why would you despicable people even consider defending these horrible human beings?"

And still none of them understand that their bull-headed opinions about rape-related cases only serves to diminish the severity of a truly heinous crime.

Ehh personally I think defending the accused before the facts are out is just as bad as judging them. Either way you are victimising one of the parties involved. Best stance is reserving all comments until the situation is resolved one way or the other.

As to this particular situation: No comment.

To be clear, the point I was trying to make is that saying "Hey, wait a second, let's not cast judgement until all the facts come out" is being equated with "defending" the band.

I think it's pretty unfair to make that assertion.

If the accusations turn out to be true and convicted, I will be hugely disappointed. Such awesome music.

never mind accusations. False accusations happen every damn day all over the world. I'm tired of being referred to being or doing things I'm not and don't do. Targeted individuals deal with this sort of bleep every day of their lives! This is all true and real! It's horrible awful and real. This is a perfect example of the all day everyday reality of targeted individuals who have to deal with phony backstabbing liars who are nothing more than just another organized gang stalking bleep!!!

This is simple.
If she says they raped her, doctors report and DNA confirm that, then those guys are going down. They might get decapitated in US prison by other inmates before going to Poland to finish their time. Na zdrowie:)
