And you base this upon what? Have you talked to him in person? Online? He's actually a very nice, down-to-Earth guy, so this news is a little disappointing

I don't know him personally, but had a few beers with him a few years ago at a metalfest in Slowenia. He had a massive ego trip and insulted the whole festival management. So, I base my opinion on that.

That is just hilarious What did he steal??

That seems like a shitload of money for stealing something under the value of $500 bucks.

hm, I was not aware of the result of the court and always wondered what is going on about that charge but as you stated, his reviews are inarticulate. Moreover, in few interviews I've read from him, he was somehow trying to sound as a fucked up, frustrated, ignorant and grim person. He might have lied in order to be considered evil

Because festival managers and promoters are never corrupt or engage in shady practices? Might well have been merited, even if a rant ratcheted up by booze.

maybe the festival management was totally crap and he was right to insult them. Nothing to do with an ego trip in that case. Maybe you as a visitor didn't notice the crappiness and total fucked up ness of the festival. AQn artist deals with them on a different level than a visitor. I've heard complaints aboiut many a fest by artists where I as visitor was only full of praise about but once I saw from a different perspective I could only agree with the artists

Just guessing but it sounds like he was borrowing/renting something and held on to it too long.. I guess it's interesting for the headline but it's really kind of mundane sounding.

Raping of other boy or girl is raping if he/she doesn't want or they fearing. This filth situtation has nothing to do if the one is your boyfriend or girlfriend.

Pretty much this. I've never dealt with him personally but I'm always hearing stories about Judd ripping people off by selling merch he didn't have. There have been plenty of people who received their stuff though so it's been a topic of debate over whether or not he's really making off with the cash. And apparently he does a lot of drugs and if that's the case that's where the money's going.

All I really have to add is I saw Nachtmystium a couple years back and their sound sucked. I could hear the drums and vocals fine but the guitar was so buried in the mix Judd might as well have not been plugged in. I never bought any of their albums either because I've heard mixed opinions and after that concert I sort of lost interest.

I do feel bad though. He looks kind of pitiable in that mugshot.

Wonder if it has anything to with this: http://nwnprod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=36038&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

I don't know much about the guy, anyone can be nice one moment and a jerk another. I do know he has struggled with drug issues (heroin), has had issues keeping his band together (it pretty much fell apart after the last album and that album has had little tour support). Guess we will have to see what the justice system has to say about the charges.

well right, I know it's violence anyway when someone is forcing a woman to sex, but when a guy is in a relationship with a woman, it doesn't make sense how this guy can force her to sex, I mean they're already in a relationship and that means they're willing to have sex , it's just a bit confusing.

being in relationship does not mean that the woman should always be eagerly waiting for the intercourse. Moreover, if the information in those links are true, I think that the guy was not interested in normal styles and his approach had been a little "weird" . So, I do not wonder if his girlfriend rejected him and thus, "...the rest of story"

Joe thinks that finally, he has been found innocent and I also do not have anything to reject this. Still, his music is pretty awesome and you should check LoC

Apparently Wrest was charged with domestic battery, and all the other charges were dropped. Still makes him a massive prick though.

well true, I wasn't saying that, that guy wasn't interested in normal styles ?! come on, if you mean that he has some kind of fetish, then still it does not justify his attempts of violence against that woman whether she was his girlfriend or a stranger passing by, still that was violence(if it happened really) committed is not kind of a fetish or being interested in other styles.


Definitely I will not, until I find out if he is really innocent in that case, this sounds harsh I know, like Varg who many thinks that he is a great musician, but for me is just an ignorant person who I will never want to push his music to my ears, why ? because I have strict policy against racism and sexism, in particular, those who are insisting or practicing it frequently like Varg who seems that will never give up such discriminating approach, then no thanks, I rather to dig some other stuffs by people who are not trying to add more mess (by mess I mean we already have enough of discrimination, better not to intensify it) to this mad world by extreme acts.

I definitely am not taking his side and I think this sentence, "At least being a thief is better than raping your girl friend " clearly shows that I'm against his act. No doubt that no one will ever have the excuse to have a sexual assault.
Also I understand that you are not going to check his music but I disagree with that.

That seems like a shitload of money for stealing something under the value of $500 bucks.


US has a commercial bail system, so what typically happens is that the person will have to pay 10% of the total amount and the bondsman will cover the rest. Bondsman will require a collateral or a cosigner, so its basically a loan.

If you do what you are supposed to do and go to court the bondsman will get back the bail money, and make that 10% you paid up front in profit. In case you don't show up to court they will literary send bounty hunters after you.

I know it sounds crazy, but bounty hunters are about 50% more effective than the regular police at retrieving criminals mostly because they only get paid after they capture the fugitive.
