Swedish Metal Band

Health Dept. Cool with Pig's Blood on Fans

EXCLUSIVE

061614_watain_launch_v3Throwing pig's blood on a crowd of concertgoers may be disgusting, vomit-inducing, unsanitary, gross, vile, and just plain revolting ... but strangely enough, it's not illegal.

As TMZ first reported, the Swedish black metal band Watain sprayed pig's blood on concertgoers during their show in Brooklyn on Sunday night ... and the crowd reacted as one might expect.

TMZ spoke with the New York City Department of Health which said it does NOT have a code against throwing pig's blood into a crowd.

The state's Board of Health told us the same, but added this bit of wisdom -- it's "not something that’s encouraged."

It's not like they showed up for a One Direction show and got pig's blood thrown on them. If you are a big enough fan to attend one of their shows AND push your way up to the front then it seems a bloody shower would be "awesome"!
