Nergal From Behemoth Portrays A Nazi In Comedy

Posted by on January 16, 2013


First off, this is in German with Polish subtitles, so we have no idea what’s happening. But here’s a clip of Behemoth frontman Nergal portraying a Nazi named Joachim von Robbentrop in a comedy called AmbaSSada (EmbaSSy). Get it? The SS in “embassy” is capitalized because it’s about Nazis. I’m laughing already. When we first wrote about it last year, we noted that the plot of the movie concerns a couple living in Warsaw in a home that happens to be the former German embassy. The couple gets transported back to 1939 just before war breaks out.

While the idea of the singer of a death metal band playing a Nazi might sound a little suspect, it’s not like Nergal is any stranger to controversy. In fact, he’ll be headed to court again to face charges of ripping up a bible onstage, even though he’d already been found innocent of any charges the first time.  AmbaSSada (EmbaSSy) will be released in the 2nd quarter of 2013, according to Headbang, although it’s uncertain as to whether it will be released in North America.
