Russia has been in the news a lot lately for pissing off America in various sectors. Now, they've managed to piss off our metal fans by detaining Behemoth at immigration services. How dare they?!

Frontman Nergal took to Facebook to complain about the detainment in Polish. Here's the Google translated version of the statement:

Update: A fan has provided a more accurate translation. Turns out it's a visa issue:

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 multihour 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. Regards. Nergal

Pozdr. Nergal

Update: Behemoth have been kicked out of the country.

For all we know, they are still detained. Behemoth are constantly under scrutiny, with Nergal going on trial for blasphemy previously.

Let's hope Nergal gets out of there safely.
