Nergal On Christian Missionary Murder: “This Idiot Asked For That, No?”
Behemoth frontman Nergal has suggested that the death of missionary John Allen Chau was brought upon himself as he visited the remote North Sentinel island to spread the word of Christianity.
Chau was killed by an indigenous tribe with a “hail of arrows” as he attempted to convert the neolithic tribe to his religion. It is a criminal offence to travel within three miles of the island and it is known that visitors are often met with hostility.
“Not that I’m happy when people die but hey… this idiot has asked for that, no?” writes Nergal on Facebook. “And now bunch of other idiots follow. Is stupidity naturally inbred in all monotheistic religions? I guess so… There’s a saying: ‘play stupid games, win stupid prizes’…”
Behemoth’s album I Loved You At Your Darkest is out now via Nuclear Blast.
One version of the Behemoth’s epic In Absentia Dei live album will come with a cardboard church you can burn down, because of course it does.
Watch the video for IDLES’ new single The Beachland Ballroom – the “most important song” on their upcoming album Crawler, according to vocalist Joe Talbot.
