 Behemoth frontman Nergal has claimed that he was kicked out of a YMCA (Young Men Christians Association) (YMCA) gym in the US for not worshipping Jesus Christ. The Polish metal icons are currently touring the states as part of Slipknot’s Knotfest tour and performed in Virginia Beach on Wednesday night. However, a pre-show workout for singer Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski proved tricky after staff at the YMCA gym took exception to his t-shirt – which featured the logo of Norwegian black metal legends Darkthrone.

They then asked if he had Christian beliefs, before asking him to leave when the metal icon confirmed that he wasn’t a man of Christ.

In a video posted on Instagram, Nergal is seen standing outside the gym before explaining the bizarre situation to his Uber driver. “And they ask us, ‘do you worship our lord Jesus Christ?’ And we don’t, because we come from Poland, and we worship Odin, you know we have different gods.” Declaring “war” on Jesus, Nergal captioned the video: “Jesus! This means war mate! U can ask your buddies to censor my art, u can ask your disciples to bring me to courts, u can ask your sons to boycott Behemoth’s shows… but u can’t F**K with my work out routine!”

The band’s social media manager added: “So @nergal69 was kicked out of a gym in the states where @behemoth are currently on tour yesterday because he was wearing a Darkthrone shirt and they asked him if he believed in Jesus Christ.
