BEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski says that he is “very inspired” to make the band’s new album.
The follow-up to 2014’s “The Satanist” will mark BEHEMOTH‘s first effort since Nergalcompleted an LP and a short tour with ME AND THAT MAN, his blues, country and folk side project with British/Polish rock musician John Porter.
“From now on, my full energy goes on BEHEMOTH,” Nergal tells Metal Hammer. “I am super-excited about the lyrics for the new record and it seems like I’ll be writing most of it. I’m very inspired.
“When I was done with ‘The Satanist’, I was pretty much done with any music,” he adds. “I was, like, ‘I don’t know if there’s any more extreme metal music in me.’ So I had to level out my energy with ME AND THAT MAN, and surprisingly, once I went back to the ‘black metal cave’ after that, I was more creative than ever. I couldn’t stop making songs! Usually, I’m super-burnt-out [after an album cycle], but at this stage, not only am I still full of ideas, I feel like I’m on drugs! I feel pumped. I’m hungry.”
