Behemoth’s Nergal is Making a Solo Album

  • Axl Rosenberg

nergal and friendI think congratulations are in order for the Brownard Palm Beach New Times: although the Florida publication is not generally known for its coverage of the metal world (or for anything, come to think of it), they just scooped the whole metal media. From a recent interview they conducted with Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski:

Do you see yourself making a solo statement entirely your own in the future?

I’m actually working on a project now, but I don’t want to let much out about it yet. I’m always creating. I always do stuff on the side, and some of it’s not suitable for Behemoth, and I’ve got some other projects that will eventually see the light of day. Or not. Nothing is for certain! [laughs]

Without giving too much away, would you be willing to tell us a little of what we might expect from a Nergal solo project?

Very stripped down and simple. The most primitive, acoustic-based stuff. That’s what I’m really into.

WHOA! A Nergal solo project? Okay, consider my curiosity piqued.

I wonder if he means “stripped down and simple” by metal standards, or by mainstream music standards? Compared to the bombast of Behemoth, Sunn O))) seems pretty stripped down and simple… but maybe he’s planning on making, like, a Loudon Wainwright album. That would really be something, eh?
