shocking poland! - 04.02.2004 00:00

04.02.2004 00:00 - "As you might have heard and read, Gorgoroth have played two gigs in Poland during the last weekend, and believe me: They made it BIG!
One gig was played in Warsaw (31.01.04) and one in Krakow (01.02.04). For the Krakow gig the band had planned and realized recordings for a DVD and promised an exciting and outstanding show! And what can I say...the fans got value for money!
Before the show started the stage was covered. After the curtain came down the following could be seen:
Four crucified and naked models (two women + two men), spilled with sheep blood, were built up on the stage. The musicians did their show in front of that setting and to complete the spectacle they all were surrounded by dozens of sheep heads and a lot of sheep blood on stage! A few minutes after the musically inferno has started one of the female models fainted and had to be taken down from the cross. Apart from that the show passed as planned.
But as soon as the gig was over, the police appeared and confiscated all the recordings from Krzemionki TV.
That’s what one of the chairman of the TV station said regarding the show:
"After analysing the material realized for an external producer we decided to report to the Police that there is a possibility that peoples' religious feelings could have been offended" said managing director of Kraków's TV station, Andrzej Jeziorek.

Tomasz Dziubiñski from Metal Mind Production (the DVD should have been released through MMP) express:
"Artists use different means of expression – an the organizer usually has got nothing to do with it. This kind of concerts have got the concrete audience – not accidental viewers. If someone felt offended we will apologize to him. We did not mean to offend anyone"! Tomasz Dziubiñski

During the last days the band was mentioned in Gazeta, one of the biggest Polish newspapers, and a lot of other magazines, webzines etc. And of course it’s safe to say that they have to expect inquisitions regarding this controversial gig in the pope’s country!

Now no one can tell for sure, if this DVD will ever be released...

Here is a statement of King "...we will also be taken in of the norwegian police for questioning and are risking two years in jail!..."
