Adam "Nergal" Darski, the frontman of Polish blackened death metal outfit Behemoth, has given his first interview since he was diagnosed with leukemia in the Summer of last year. Speaking exclusively to MetalSucks.net, Nergal stated:

"It's not like I'm completely healthy or something. But I got new bone marrow and the transplant went totally fine. The new bone marrow is accepted by my organisms. It's not [fighting] against my organisms, which happens very often in such cases. But in my case, everything is going according to plan. There have been no delays. My blood was checked every week, and now every two weeks, so actually I reduced the amount of blood tests that they've been taking. Everything is going almost perfect and in the direction that it should. There is no reason to be worried. Physically I'm getting better. Obviously my muscles are not the same, not as strong. I get tired quite easily still. It's still getting better. For example, [laughs] three weeks ago, I tried to do push-ups; I did three. Today, I did 11. That should tell you how it's improving all the time, and every next push-up makes me happy."
