Behemoth Frontman: 'Everyone Should Get Cancer One Day And Learn From It'
Aftonbladet journalist Mattias Kling conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Adam "Nergal" Darski of Polish extreme metallers Behemoth at this year's edition of the Getaway Rock festival, which was held July 5-6 in Gävle, Sweden, Blabbermouth reports. You can now watch the chat below. On how his battle with a life-threatening form of leukemia has changed him as a person: Nergal: "I would say in many ways - too many to mention, actually... in numerous ways. It made me a better person, for sure. On a mental level, spiritual level... pretty much anything. Physically, I'm stronger than ever, too. It may sound controversial, but I would say that everyone should get cancer one day and learn from it, you know what I mean?! Obviously, I don't want anyone to get sick. It's more or less a metaphor for people to realize how much potential they can unleash if they want to, and [for them] to realize their potential." On the progress of the songwriting sessions for the next Behemoth album: Nergal: "I can't tell you much, because there's not much done yet. There's definitely new ideas, and I would say we've got roughly five [song] skeletons ready. We wanna start working collectively [on new material] in the upcoming weeks. I'd say that September 2013 is a very realistic date for the release date for our next record." On whether fans can expect to hear "the same Behemoth" on the next album: Nergal: "I don't know what you mean [when you say] 'the same Behemoth', because we've never really sounded the same on any record, you know what I mean?! Every time it was a huge challenge and every record sounds very much different, so I'm more than sure that this new one is gonna sound much more different than 'Evangelion' [2009] sounded from 'The Apostasy' [2007] and [on that album there] was already quite a difference, so I would say just be patient, wait and be surprised."
