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."
