With all the recent press surrounding Nergal in his home country of Poland, it’s easy to forget how hard of a year it’s been for him. He was diagnosed with leukemia over a year ago, and has made a remarkable recovery since his bone marrow transplant. All of that makes Behemoth’s return to the stage even more meaningful.
Behemoth performed for the first time since Nergal was diagnosed this past Saturday (October 8 ) in Poznan, Poland. The frontman himself posted the following message on the band’s website:
“Magick is back, my friends! We have our first ‘rebirth’ shows under our belt, moreover, both Poznan and Danzig were totally sold out and crowd’s reactions went beyond anyone’s expectations!
We have a special guest, Krzysztof Azarewicz introducing the band on stage, thanx mate! You are a true friend! Behemoth would like to thank every person that came down and shown their support.
It can’t be underrated. We have few more shows to go…and then we’re gonna take a deep breath before striking back the European stages in February. This is the ultimate manifest and our unconquerable will! Join us!”
