Good luck.
I saw Belphegor with Deicide last year, and they by far were the most intimidating - very "into" their onstage roles. Amazing stage presence, amazing musicians in general.
We can't afford to lose another metalhead.
Satan/God/Vishnu/Morgan Freeman/Allah be with you.

All the best to Helmuth, I haven't tired of their blastbeat blasphemies yet and I don't see it happening soon.

He will over come this! Like Nergal, he is a warrior and stubborn. Meaning he will not give up that easy. I am curious though as to what the cause is, what has made him go into operation?
Maybe Behemoth and Belphegor will do a tour together when this is done. Imagine, Nergal and Helmuth on the same stage!?!? F'en Hell, that would be brutally fantastic!
