Behemoth Holds First Rehearsal Session Since Frontman’s Transplant Surgery

Polish death metal act Behemoth has announced its return to its rehearsal space in preparation of its forthcoming concert dates. This is the first time the band has rehearsed together since frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski underwent a bone marrow transplant operation last year for leukemia. Nergal commented on the recent rehearsal session by saying;

“So, first rehearsals after the transplant are under our belts! I didn’t want to get overexcited at first, just wanted to see how things would go, but I have to tell you, the second rehearsal we fuckin’ nailed ‘Ov Fire And The Void,’ ‘Lucifer,’ ‘Conquer All’ [and] ‘Antichristian Phenomenon’ flawlessly! One of us even asked: ‘Did we really take a year off from each other?’ Ha ha… it was good times in great company! But the biggest surprise were the songs we NEVER played live ever and planning to do on the upcoming ‘Phoenix Rising Tour.’ I won’t reveal any names yet, let it be a mystery til we hit the stage, all right?

“In other news, I started jamming out some NEW shit too. [Its to] early to give any further comments but it sounds VERY disturbing and eerie. Can’t fuckin wait to unleash those ideas to my friends”
