You know who’s fucking cool as hell, and really, really awesome to hang with in foreign countries? Full Metal Jackie, that’s who. Gun Shy Assassin loves Full Metal Jackie, and we often wish her show aired in our area, because she does some wicked rad interviews with some of the biggest names in metal, like Behemoth’s Adam “Nergal” Darski.
Full Metal Jackie recently spoke with Adam “I Kicked Cancer’s Ass” Darski, and he said that the outpouring of support from the metal community last year when his health took a shit was very touching.
“I’ve said that several times already that I would never expect the extreme metal community to be that sympathetic, to be that empathetic, for all of these people to feel for me so much and to just send all the messages and emails all of the post I’ve seen on several forums,” starts Nergal. “It was cool, it was really cool. It was really encouraging and having in mind this massive support coming from people who I consider our fans, it was really helpful and it was very encouraging, as I said. It’s not just me and my family behind my back, in a way it’s my new family, I consider all these people as a family in way, you know, so it’s an extreme metal family. [Laughs] So it’s awesome, it feels good that there is people that have so much support and have so much faith in you and that you really mean something to them and you can’t overrate it. It’s amazing, yeah; it’s killer. I mean, I’m speechless.”
Nergal also promised Behemoth’s upcoming tour would be so evil, mass miscarriages would occur within five miles of every stop on their tour the night they play. He didn’t say that, exactly.
“We’re doing Poland now. It’s a warm-up tour and then we’re starting with Cannibal Corpse in February in Europe and actually we’re putting final touches to a U.S. tour which will start on April 12,” Nergal begins. “The lineup is still a secret, but probably within days or weeks it’s going to be revealed to the world. All I got to say now, because I’m not really allowed to reveal any names, but it’s like a dream team tour for me. It’s going to be very underground, very dangerous and when we go on tours, especially in the U.S., we’ve always compromised to be on a bill with bands, bigger bands, smaller bands it doesn’t matter.
“But sometimes it’s just politics, it’s labels involved, it’s money and stuff that we need to compromise and there’s bands that we hate, good guys, you know, but a lot of music that’s on the bill it’s shit, and this time, for the first time ever, it’s my favorite bands on the bill. Just wait and see — it’s going to be a huge surprise. It’s going to be massive. It’s very underground, but people will fucking love it. People are dying to see this kind of bill; it’s going to be super-evil. It’s going to be the most satanic tour that’s going to invade the U.S in a long time and there’s going to be no tour like that in years. That’s a promise; just wait and see. I can’t wait for this to happen.”
