Adam “Nergal” Darski, frontman of Polish death metal warriors Behemoth who is currently recovering from leukaemia after a successful bone marrow transplant at the start of the year, has exclusively revealed to Terrorizer that he is set to appear as a judge on the Polish equivalent of talent shows such as X-Factor and American Idol!

On signing up to new show The Voice, Nergal muses, “I haven’t signed a deal yet, but I got a deal waiting and most probably, it’s happening. So it’s going to be fun. The first black metal judge ever in history doing a mainstream thing, you know? People are going to freak out! Some are going to love it, some are going to fucking hate it. But that’s what this music has always been about, right? To provoke, to cause different opinions. The more extreme opinions, the better, I think.”

“This so-called celebrity life is not my environment at all, but I am a part of it if I want it or not,” he adds of the attention he has received in his home country. “So it’s been crazy. Then the whole case with my sickness and me getting out alive, it just brought some extra attention to it. And there’s definitely some people that want to make some money on it because it’s a cool story for them to write about and stuff, but I was like, ‘Okay, if they’re going to make money, I want to have my share too’. I was away from music and away from being active live for a good year, so yeah, I need to get something in return!”

Behemoth have been rehearsing some new material, with a new album tentatively scheduled for late next year.
