Behemoth frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski made his return to the live stage recently, performing a guest spot with Fields Of The Nephilim. This is the first time he has performed live since being diagnosed with leukemia and receiving a bone marrow transplant. A message from Darski reads as follows:

"I just came off stage…Katowice, Poland. It was my first performance after the transplant. I don't remember when the last time I was THAT nervous. First of all, I had to join one of my favorite bands ever, true legends, Fields Of The Nephilim…secondly, I'm still not 100% in shape so I didn't know how my body would react. I would risk saying I'm maybe 60% of what I used to be…but still progressing!

"Anyway, We did a song 'Penetration' together with Carl McCoy and Co. What a blast I have to tell you. I had a serious adrenaline rush and it was such a boost of energy I can't even describe. My mouth dried out after 30 seconds so I could hardly breathe but the energy wouldn't let me stop. I was carried away. The moment I saw the crowd, I felt this double bass pounding underneath my feet…I was in trance. I'm counting days 'til we come back with Behemoth full time. Five months to go…huh."

Dude, that collab with Carl McCoy must've kicked ass! I like Nefilim's "Penetration" as much as I like the Behemoth cover
