Last week, while waiting for a flight at Pulkovo Airport in Saint Petersburg, BELPHEGOR frontman Helmuth Lehner was spit in the face by a Russian Orthodox Activist, Vitali Milonova Anatoly Artyukhov. Luckily, NILE‘s Karl Sanders intervened and prevented things from getting physical. Watch the video below:
If you remember, back in 2014 CANNIBAL CORPSE show was cancelled in Russia for “technical reasons” and the band’s lyrics were also banned in the country. Similar thing happened to BEHEMOTH when they were forced to leave Russia for violating country’s visa regulations.
