Behemoth interview (10/2009)

With: Adam "Nergal" Darski
Conducted by: Baz Anderson (in person)
Published: 21.10.2009

Band profile:


Currently on tour with Devildriver, Behemoth have switched roles and find themselves as main support on the UK leg of the tour. Before the band took the stage, I managed to have a chat with Nergal about all things Behemoth. This is how it went:

Part 1

Part 2

Thanks go to Nergal for his time, and also Adam Sagir for setting it up.

Interesting to watch! I don't think I've seen him without make-up. Nice down-to-earth interview. The release of a biography of the band raised an eyebrow of mine too. I haven't really read a metal band biography before, let alone one of an extreme metal band such as Behemoth. It sounds like something to look out for.

I got to meet Nergal about three or four months ago and it's safe to say that he is one of the coolest persons living.

I'd be a bit worried if he didn't.

Thanks a lot everyone for the positive comments.

Congratulations for a very interesting and good interview....I never would have imagined Nergal'd look like this in real life....
Go ahead, make my day...

I am not normally into interviews.. or I find that I start to tune them out after awhile (not yours, Baz.. I mean interviews in general). But this one held my interest. I really enjoyed it. I am excited about the double DVD news. Nergal seems like a pretty cool guy.

Very interesting interview actually. Even though I'm not the biggest Evangelion fan or Behemoth fan for that matter.

Nice interview. Nergal's answers are to the point and he doesn't rush to be out.
He looks a bit old to me though.

Wow, this guy's got a vision much clearer than so many other musicians out there.

He also looks like Robert Downey Jr.

Or maybe even Nicholas Cage?

Is it just me or did he seem kind of annoyed at a few of the questions?

Ok, I met him once and he was definitely one of the nicest musicians Ive met. Just during the genre labeling and few other moments he seemed to have an air about him that seemed stressed or something. Never mind then
