While in the middle of a Russian tour, Behemoth were halted by Russian emigration authorities. The band's vocalist Nergal let loose with the following message in regards to the situation.
“We’ve been stopped by the immigration services for ‘wrong visas.’ When I said that we will not move an inch from the club without someone from the Polish embassy, they threatened to force us out. They took us in a bus, accompanied by 10 officers, to the building of Federal Migration Service. We tried to reach polish embassy in Jekaterinburg but no one is answering the phone.
If possible — please copy this message and pass it everywhere you can. We may expect a multi-hour hearing.
The concert is off for sure. The only thing we want is to get back to the hotel safely and then — to Poland. No matter how hard we try — we cannot pass it all.”
We wish best of luck to the band.
