According to the Polish web site Fakt.pl, Adam "Nergal" Darski, the 33-year-old leukemia-stricken guitarist/vocalist of the Polish extreme metal act Behemoth, has been readmitted to the hematology division of Uniwersyteckie Centrum Kliniczne (Uck) in Gdansk after he developed an infection six weeks after he underwent a bone marrow transplant procedure. "The patient was taken to hospital again because he did not care proper care of himself," Dr. Maria Bieniaszewska, assistant professor in the Department of Hematology, was quoted as saying. It is not presently clear if the infection will affect Nergal's adoption of the bone marrow transplant and how long he will have to remain in hospital. In his condition, when the immune system is weakened, such infections could even be life-threatening. In a statement released last month, Nergal stated about his recovery, "Although the whole treatment went really good, as well as the bone marrow transplant and the post-transplant period, the next several months is the time when I must really take care of myself. Of course, I will have plenty of time to recover, think about the strategy and my return to the stage - which approaches imminently. (laughs) First of all, however, I must rebuild my physical condition." Thanks for the report to Metalrage.com.

    weird my part of the comment didn't appear- whatever their personal feelings, it's unbelievably inappropriate for a member of the medical community to disparage a patient, especially publicly. That physician should be ashamed of himself.

    Maybe because English isn't their first language at all?

    the general public are pop music sheep who have no idea who behemoth even are and would run away screaming. I'm one of maybe 5 people out of over 1000 at my school who would even consider listening to them. I think that counts as being "generally disliked." But anyway, get better Nergal. Conquer all, including this infection!

    dear UG, please, I'm polish, and I beg You - DO NOT BASE YORU NEWS ON FAKT.PL - this is a portal and a newspaper that are basically spilling bullshit all over the media, they even wrote an article about a woman being attacked by a vampire, or an oldie having her arm broken by dust. These news about Nergal happen to be true, but generally... please. There are many more reliable sources. Rock greetings from Poland!

    Sad face I don't really listen to Behemoth, but as far as the impact they have had for the Metal community, there cool in my book, I hope he gets better :/

    People relax about the typo. This was obviously translated into English and this is how some languages literally translate to English.

    Take it easy Nergal. I'd rather have to wait 6 months to a year for you to be back at full strength then to lose you entirely. Much love.

    Herself. Also, not really disparaging, she pretty much just stated the reason why he was in hospital. I don't know how else you could say that. Get well soon Nergal!

    so very true

    I am not much of a fan of behemoth, but this is the kind of thing you never want to see. I wish him a speedy recovery and that he takes better care of himself next time he is released.

    The government there doesn't like them, that's why they put a cap on how many shows they can play there in a year.

    Dude, I see you've never been to Poland, lawl. I'm sorry, it's not 1981 anymore, there's no government caps on band shows, sorry, I see you really want to make my country look bad. The news of his illness were a very hot topic in the news, and there was a lot of nation-wide support for him, people started donating whatever he needed (don't remember, something with the bone) and money like crazy.

    I've never even listenend to Behemoth, but he needs to get on top of this, man! Best of luck, Nergal!

    Oh by the way "Fakt.pl" is a cheap tabloid, it's like the sun or the weekly world news, so that's not a reliable source.

    I like how people who are not even into Behemoth are supporting this. Seeing people showing philanthropy, in a way, really makes my day. Best wishes Nergal mate, I missed your show last year.

    The government has nothing to do with Nergal. They don't really care. They've got other more important issues. And when it comes to the society, its actually the opposite way. There is a kind of hype around them (at least among metal fans imao). Anyway, I hope he'll be alright asap.

    Damn metalheads, you need to take care of yourself with such an illness.
