Earlier this week it was reported that Behemoth frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski could be facing some jail time in Poland after ripping up a bible and calling the Catholic church "the most murderous cult on the planet" onstage during the band's performance in Gdynia. But it turns out that the vocalist may have an ally in the European Commission, who have weighed in on Poland's national blasphemy law.
Behemoth frontman and leukemia survivor Adam 'Nergal' Darski ran into some legal troubles after tearing up a Bible onstage during a Sept. 2007 performance in Gdynia, Poland. He did so while calling the Catholic church "the most murderous cult on the planet." Nergal was cleared of any criminal charges by Polish judge Krzysztof Wieckowski in 2011, but the Supreme Court of Poland has now ruled that the vocalist has in fact committed a crime in the Bible-tearing incident. This new development opens up the possibility of the Behemoth frontman serving up to two years in prison.
