Behemoth’s Nergal launches dark folk side-project Me And That Man

Posted in Folk, Misc., News, Studio Report with tags , , , , , , , on 20th January 2017 by izaforestspirit

The Behemoth frontman Nergal has recently formed a new side-project with rock musician John Porter. The project is called Me And That Man and it is completely different from Nergal’s main band.

There are no metal elements, instead Me And That Man is more akin to the works of Johnny Cash and Nick Cave. Dark folk is the best description that I can think of.

The duo are currently working on their debut album ‘Songs of Love and Death’, which is scheduled to hit the shops on 24th March 2017 via Cooking Vinyl.

In the meantime you can check out their first video here:

Polish extreme metal legends Behemoth recently unveiled their video for Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel and it’s one of the most visual displays released by the band, as well as their most unique and startling masterpiece. The song is taken form the band’s upcoming album The Satanist, which was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. It was then mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Metallica, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art, which is also being revealed today, is a painting by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas. Nergal‘s own blood was used in the paint when creating the cover artwork and additional artwork was created by Metastazis and Zbigniew Bielak.

Nuclear Blast, whom the band are currently signed to, recently had a chat with Behemoth’s frontman Nergal. The video below Nergal explains the concept behind the video and how Grupa 13 were able to make the band’s masterpiece a reality.

The tour itself will take the two metallic titans through Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, France and Luxembourg and a few other locations.

In related news, Behemoth‘s next release The Satanist is scheduled for release via Buclear Blast in early 2014. Frontman Nergal comments:

We are immensely proud to start promotion of The Satanist on the release date of the album in such a noble company. It’s been a while since we toured Europe for the last time… The wolfpack grew stronger and hungrier and with new opus and stage production we have so much more to offer. This European crusade will be the catalyst of 2 years long tour so keep your eyes open!

This reign of darkness will be opened by Oslo based Svarttjern and the rest of the line up is completed by, Swedish heavy metal veterans In Solitude and Colombian black metallers Inquistion.
