BEHEMOTH's Nergal Checks In From North American Tour - "This Is The Fastest Running Trek I've Ever Done In My Life"
May 1, 2012, 5 years ago
BEHEMOTH's return to touring in North America has been nothing short of triumphant. Shows on the tour have been jam packed with fans eager to see the band take the stage. The mutual energy between the bands on the stage and the crowds throughout North America is immediately evident.
Behemoth frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski offers up the following statement:"I'm sitting in The Old Absynthe House in New Orleans as I'm writing these words. It's said that Crowley used to spend time here, getting wasted and gaining inspiration. A good place to hang out, my friends. Behemoth is having a day off and we have only 10 shows left on the tour. This is the fastest running trek I've ever done in my life! There are not enough words to describe how comfortable and happy we are with the fact that we are touring in such noble company and shows are being so massively attended. Every night when I'm off stage, I have the feeling this was the highlight of the tour. People are fuckin' raging and we are feeding on that energy. Thank you."
On the inspiration behind the tour, Nergal continues: "When I was putting this bill together with my manager months ago, I wanted to recreate the feeling of the early 90's when the Fuck Christ tour hit Europe (BLASHPHEMY, ROTTING CHRIST and IMMORTAL). It's fifteen years later, but we are still trying to make an impact, do exciting things, think outside of the box and eventually fuck up the system with attitude that's far from compromise and political correctness. We are on the right path. Join us or step away…"
