Metal Injection correspondent Aline flew to Poland last month to catch one of BEHEMOTH‘s first shows back after a break from live performances of over a year, and she managed to grab guitarist/vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski and bassist Tomasz “Orion” Wróblewski for a post-show chat. She checks on Nergal‘s status, the future of the band and all the recent controversy surrounding the band. Nergal also discusses what the plans are for the future and the possibility of new BEHEMOTH music. Watch the interview below.
BEHEMOTH played its first show of 2011 on October 8 in Poznan, Poland. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
In an interview with MetalSucks, Nergal — who was diagnosed with leukemia in August 2010 — stated about BEHEMOTH‘s current and upcoming touring activities, “Just wait and see us on the stage. You’ll see. I’m not going to reveal anything about it, but we … It’s not gonna just be BEHEMOTH. It’s not like time stood still for us, like we were frozen in time and are just going to appear with the same entourage and in the same outfits. No. We’re going to come back, we want to remind people of our existence obviously, but we want to make a fucking impact, an impression. We want to show them that, hey, we are still fucking evolving. We’re not just hoping that you’ll come to see us because I was sick. Fuck that. I’ll be better soon and we’re going to deliver!”
BEHEMOTH recently released a video for the song “Lucifer” off the band’s current album, “Evangelion”. The Grupa 13-directed clip features Polish singer, guitarist, and poet Maciej Malenczuk, who also contributed guest vocals to the track.
