I had to google "Nermal of Garfield," but I'm not claiming that my ignorance has any bearing on its cultural significance. Sometimes it's good to become aware of something you've never heard of.Nermal of Garfield.. who the f*** are these people? Another week another story from another person I've never heard of..

Today I learned they have death metal in Poland.. so I got that going for me.

Your comment "another week..." implies that you think this person mentioned Morrissey in order to get publicity but Morrissey is only mentioned briefly and was not the point of the interview. He is discussed for a minute or so in a half hour interview. It's not a blog post about cancelling Morrissey by someone trying to get attention.
Nergal talks about how when he did become somewhat active politically in Poland the opposition used his image to discredit the causes and candidates he supported. In Poland blasphemy is illegal and he had to fight court cases for years while also battling cancer.
They also visit a museum during the interview and look at the works of a Polish artist who is currently the subject of a Netflix documentary.
Not having heard of something doesn't mean it's a bad thing and it's kind of arrogant to celebrate your ignorance or judge the validity of things by whether or not you are aware of them. I don't listen to much death metal but there is almost no music in the interview. It's interesting to me to see someone become successful on their own terms making "extreme" art as opposed to trying to create something that will appeal to the widest audience. I stumbled on this interview because that channel does interesting interviews with lots of musicians who I might not necessarily listen to. But I did learn from watching this.
I don't know that much about Nergal besides seeing a lot of references to him and his band in the metal community. I'm more into "doom" than black metal or death metal. But I am curious about your opinion of him. Is it his personality or something he has done?I saw Behemoth live last year. They put on a hell of a show (no pun intended). I don't like Nergal as a person but Behemoth have been extremely influential and I'm not surprised Loudwire chose The Satanist as metal album of the decade. The video was interesting and I didn't know Nergal was a Morrissey fan, so thanks for posting it.
I don't think loneliness really exists, or not as people think it does. I think loneliness is not feeling separate from other people, but seperate from yourself, not connected to your internal universe. people look for solace to their loneliness in other people but it's really themselves to which they should look. I think that's why I never experience loneliness--im too filled up with my self (which is not the same thing as being "full of yourself"). all your're filled up with is alcohol, how can you not think you're lonely?How do you cope with loneliness? I think it suits me to get drunk. I can't explain the loneliness that goes on inside of me. It'll never go. Lonely as f***. It doesn't go.
Nergal refuses to ‘dig there’ ...
Well, if folks would dig deeper they
just may find that Morrissey is not a racist.
