Like a broken record, this guy is

In an interview on Blabbermouth, Behemoth frontman Nergal reiterated his previous stance that the current scene is weak sauce, excluding his band of course.

“Today’s extreme metal scene is all about making a lot of noise and just playing millions of riffs within one song, and I don’t really see the point in doing that,” says Nergal.

“You know what I mean? To me, it’s masturbation, it’s dull, it’s boring, it’s flat at the end of the day. When you listen to those kinds of records, it doesn’t [do anything for] me at all. I grew up listening to extreme metal bands like Slayer, even Blasphemy, the most extreme bands… or Mayhem… They would still make songs, you know what I mean?

“There was a place for a chorus, a place for verses, a lead… And we keep that formula going. Even though our music is different, we are in a different place, we still compose songs, and that’s what people dig after all. I mean, the things that have hooks and that are memorable, I’m not doing this to attract people, I’m doing it to attract myself, because I grew up that way, I was raised with that kind of music, and I appreciate it in other bands, so I definitely wanna do it the same in Behemoth.”

Behemoth’s newest album, The Satanist, is extreme and in stores now.
