Behemoth guitarist and vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski grabbed leukemia by the fucking throat and fucked its ass, and on Friday, the dude was back on stage — but not with Behemoth.
Nergal joined long-running English gothic rock band Fields of the Nephilim on stage in Katowice, Poland, to perform the song “Penetration.” Nergal posted that picture on his Facebook.
This was Nergal’s first performance since undergoing a bone marrow transplant last December.
“I don’t remember when the last time I was THAT nervous,” Nergal posted online. “First of all, I had to join one of my favorite bands ever, true legends, Fields of the Nephilim…Secondly, I’m still not 100% in shape so I didn’t know how my body would react. I would risk saying I’m maybe 60% of what I used to be…but still progressing!
“What a blast, I have to tell you. I had a serious adrenaline rush and it was such a boost of energy I can’t even describe. My mouth dried out after 30 seconds so I could hardly breathe but the energy wouldn’t let me stop. I was carried away. The moment I saw the crowd, I felt this double-bass pounding underneath my feet…I was in trance. I’m counting days ‘till we come back with Behemoth full-time. Five months to go…huh.”
