I had to google "Nermal of Garfield," but I'm not claiming that my ignorance has any bearing on its cultural significance. Sometimes it's good to become aware of something you've never heard of.
Your comment "another week..." implies that you think this person mentioned Morrissey in order to get publicity but Morrissey is only mentioned briefly and was not the point of the interview. He is discussed for a minute or so in a half hour interview. It's not a blog post about cancelling Morrissey by someone trying to get attention.
Nergal talks about how when he did become somewhat active politically in Poland the opposition used his image to discredit the causes and candidates he supported. In Poland blasphemy is illegal and he had to fight court cases for years while also battling cancer.
They also visit a museum during the interview and look at the works of a Polish artist who is currently the subject of a Netflix documentary.

Not having heard of something doesn't mean it's a bad thing and it's kind of arrogant to celebrate your ignorance or judge the validity of things by whether or not you are aware of them. I don't listen to much death metal but there is almost no music in the interview. It's interesting to me to see someone become successful on their own terms making "extreme" art as opposed to trying to create something that will appeal to the widest audience. I stumbled on this interview because that channel does interesting interviews with lots of musicians who I might not necessarily listen to. But I did learn from watching this.

I saw Behemoth live last year. They put on a hell of a show (no pun intended). I don't like Nergal as a person but Behemoth have been extremely influential and I'm not surprised Loudwire chose The Satanist as metal album of the decade. The video was interesting and I didn't know Nergal was a Morrissey fan, so thanks for posting it.

'when someone gets offended it speaks about themselves and not the source of the offence'

Nice comment. Skinny - open to some reflection?

Nergal refuses to ‘dig there’ ...


:rock::lbf:


Well, if folks would dig deeper they
just may find that Morrissey is not a racist.

Just saying.


:cool:

maybe Untruth should bring in Barnaby, have him explain in detail how (-:paranoid:-) NOT being aware of a 'satanist' named Behemoth with the sign of the beast tats on his neck may make him a good person and a cultural influence.:lbf:

The Labour Party right now is making Morrissey Solo AND Morrissey look completely sane & reasonable, so I don't think anyone needs to worry about being a Morrissey fan anymore.

I don't know that much about Nergal besides seeing a lot of references to him and his band in the metal community. I'm more into "doom" than black metal or death metal. But I am curious about your opinion of him. Is it his personality or something he has done?

How do you cope with loneliness? I think it suits me to get drunk. I can't explain the loneliness that goes on inside of me. It'll never go. Lonely as f***. It doesn't go.
I don't think loneliness really exists, or not as people think it does. I think loneliness is not feeling separate from other people, but seperate from yourself, not connected to your internal universe. people look for solace to their loneliness in other people but it's really themselves to which they should look. I think that's why I never experience loneliness--im too filled up with my self (which is not the same thing as being "full of yourself"). all your're filled up with is alcohol, how can you not think you're lonely?

He objects to getting happy on liquor but is is all for having peeps put inside a wood chipper:rage:

I think the point is more that "fans" should listen to the music if they like it but try to avoid unhealthy identification with a person they can't really know anyway.

It's a bit of both, really. I think he says a lot of stuff just to spark controversy. He flirts with NSBM by wearing shirts of bands clearly associated with that scene and not distancing himself enough from it.
He just doesn't come across as a nice person in my opinion but it seems that he mellowed a bit after surviving leukaemia.

There were also some nasty stories about him witnessing/possibly taking part in the raping of a fan 15 years ago or so. But as far as I know he's never been charged and I haven't researched him well enough to have a proper opinion on this particular case.
