>More on Nergal’s case

>First up, here are four items (all from online Metal-oriented publications) with quite a bit of good background information. They are all fairly recent, but only the first one is from after the case against Nergal was dismissed:

From Blabbermouth (June 28):

From Blabbermouth (April 20):
