Randy Blythe, the Lamb Of God singer arrested for manslaughter last month, is still in a Prague prison despite posting bail this week.
A bond of four million Czech koruna (£126,000) was paid to free Blythe earlier this week but, due to the way the legal system works in Czechoslovakia, the metal singer is still locked up until an appeal can be heard in full.
A court spokesman told the BBC that he believed it would take "several days" until Blythe was released from Prague's Pankrac prison.
Blythe was arrested in June over charges dating back to an instage scuffle in 2010. A man involved in the incident died a few days later and police believe that the two incidents are connected, taking Blythe in when Lamb Of God visited Prague to play a recent headline show.
