Behemoth Frontman Reportedly Undergoes Bone Marrow Transplant Surgery

As was previously announced, Behemoth front man Adam "Nergal" Darski recently found a bone marrow transplant donor.

Although no official statement has been released from Behemoth, Gunshyassassin.com has now issued the following statement about Nergal undergoing surgery:

In what may be the first step in his full recovery, Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has undergone what I’m hoping will be a life-saving bone marrow transplant. The 33-year-old metaller is said to be doing well after the procedure.

For those who’ve been living under a rock the last year, Nergal was diagnosed with leukemia some months ago, and recently revealed that a genetic donor match had been found and that he would soon be getting that much-needed transplant.

According to reports, Nergal will spend the next four weeks in an isolation room at the hematology division of Uniwersyteckie Centrum Kliniczne (UCK) in Gdansk to avoid any infection while his immune system is compromised.

^^^Really? So, everyone with Lukemia has burned a bible? That's really odd. Why hasn't the medical community been privy to this information? We could wipe out Leukemia world wide by just eliminating all bibles available for burning! Please get a clue, and if that doesn't work you can always suck on the business end of a .44 mag...

Not much of a Behemoth fan, but fingers crossed for this guy. Wait...since Im crossing my fingers and its some sort of a cross, does that mean I have to hold my fingers upside down?

Blind Greed, please clarify!

I've been a big Behemoth fan for years (those of you who know me here know this well) but a small confession: Due to harsh circumstances that I've overcome (having been homeless for a couple months and then bouncing back), I've found that prayer helps (No, I'm not gonna pull a Dave Mustaine or [insert some metal artist who turned into a douchebag after finding religion here].). Upon finding out that Nergal had leukemia (since he was reported to be going under chemo while I was in that rough patch), I did pray for him.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If you quit, however, it lasts forever.
