atheists are the most pitiful, fundamentally moronic individuals in the pack of them... but this one isn't wrong in telling belphegor no entry. still, its important that opinion isnt based on just this one incident. as far as this "super controversial topic", maybe lerner made the wise decision, not an impulsive one; but, belphegor... its all image to them. i've continued to enjoy some of their music after knowing that, but it is what it is.
" "It's just art" is a false excuse for their real ugliness" Well, if art weren't useful for that then it would be completely pointless. Art has no morals and that's why it is awesome: It brings freedom for the artist. Trying to "moralize" and put chains upon it, like pricks like you are trying to do, is really fucking stupid. Also, it's funny you talk about fear, It seems that you are pretty afraid of people like them.
@dark_wisdom. Yes, a way of self-expression. They express their ugliness and lameness, what they think of and what they would do. But they can't do that, they are freaks, but coward freaks, too much fears they have, it's all clear. "It's just art" is a false excuse for their real ugliness, stupid rebelness and hatred. I don't like such "art".
@rigormortis85 because its fucking music you moron, it's art, a way of self-expression, they are musicians not psychopaths, its not that everyone singing about killing the entire fucking world is about to start a killing spree, of course you got morons out there who take their shit so seriously they end up dead or in jail (Norwegian retarded inner circle for example). The way Helmut and the rest of the crew acted against the attacks was the most prudent way, he defended himself and then moved away. What do you think would have happened if he started a fight or even worse, stabbed or shot the poor fucker just for the sake of acting like an anti-christian-macho-warrior according to his band's lyrics? Some people are simply not stupid, you know that?
@rigormortis85 do you even understand what art is? they aren't fighters, they're musicians and nothing more. If Helmuth would have pushed that orthodox retard in the face he would have been arrested immideatly. And that's what those provokers had been waiting for. What's the point of being thrown in jail in Russia without any possibility to play the shows? Use your brain, please, evil christian.
I'm not singing about killing christians like Belphegor does. My attitude is not aggressive. But look at Belphegor: they are presenting themselves as evil antichristian fighters on stage, offend christians, then run away from them. This is total shit!
Shitty black metal with extremist amoral lyrics should be banned in Russia, yeah. You are evil fighters against christianity only on words but not in practice, all you can is to show your middle finger, because you're just coward suckers, making money on your shitty creativity for morons like you.
It looks like that gig went to shit. Some dates were cancelled and they couldn't perform in some cities, it looks like they performed in Moscow but only instrumentally. Metal should be banned in Russia and foreign metal bands shouldn't be allowed to enter so they don't bother planning gigs and wasting their time going there. That sort of stuff doesn't even happen here in latin america where people is pretty religious and traditionalist.
Those orthodox dickheads do whatever the fuck they want. And what's even worse, you can't even protest in the same way as they do. 'Cause they'll just fucking sue you and they'll throw your ass in jail for "insulting their religious fellings". And everybody hates it but everybody keeps their mouth shut 'cause they're scared. Fuck that shit.
Nile badge on lanyard suggests it is so. Karl Sanders for the fucking win! Never been a listener of his band but gained a ton of respect for him just watching that. No one else was actively trying to prevent escalation, but he was at it from the get-go, which led to people trying to protect *him* when it got a bit heated. As shitty as that situation was it kind of showed a lot of good in people as well.
At airport they were met by activists of "People's Cathedral" (russian patriotic and orthodox public organization). Milonov's (epatage russian politician) assistant Anatoly Artyukh said Leiner in russian that their concert is undesirable in the city. "Apparently, he doesn't understand russian well, he perceived my speech as an aggression and attacked me. I got a kick in the hip. Going to record the beating fact in the hospital, "- said Artyukh.
