14 of the craziest musical stage props


Gorgoroth’s demonic stage setup

The Norwegian black metallers were investigated by Polish police and dropped from their label for a 2004 concert in Kraków which featured four naked crucifed models, sheeps’ heads on stakes, 80 liters of animal blood, and of course, a healthy helping of Satanic symbology. The investigation focused on allegations of animal cruelty and intentional religious offense, but in the end, the band were not charged as they were unaware anything they were doing was illegal, though the concert organizer was fined. Still, you can’t beat that ambiance.
