Whitney Public Library pays tribute to Bomb the Music Industry!

Whitney Library, which is in Las Vegas, recently paid tribute to Bomb the Music Industry!.

Behemoth frontman charged with insulting Polish national emblem.

Behemoth frontman charged with insulting Polish national emblem.

Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski and designer Rafal Wechterowicz have been charged with insulting the Polish national emblem. The Polish authorities felt that their newest t-shirt design insulted their national coat of arms, which in Poland is a punishable offense. The design portrays a coat of arms with its centerpiece being a inverted cross. They have pled “not guilty” to the charges and if convicted will have to pay a fine and may be incarcerated for a short period of time. Nergal stated, "Well… this is the first thing that hit's me after coming back from a relaxing and sunny holiday trip. Me and 2 other dudes r accused of profaning Polish emblem. What a bummer! PIS-driven Poland is trying its best to nail my ass down… as an example I guess. But first thing is: it is NOT a Polish emblem. Second… let's leave those arguments for the court case which is to begin shortly…! Is their limits to their obscurity and blindness? Bring it on."
