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.”

Nothing will happen to their name, except continual growth for the band (and perhaps some amazing new album.)

Your fans stand behind you unanimously!

Perhaps traditional justice won't be served to the accusers, but I'm certainly willing to place all bets on red, that they will see a steep decline in their quality of life after such slander to our close community.

Congrats, you just f***** yourselves.
