Behemoth’s Nergal: “I Bet There’s Adolf Hitler In Each One Of You”

During an appearance on the Metal Hammer podcast, Behemoth’s Adam “Nergal” Darski was talking about his admiration for hipsters and how he tries to find hipster hang outs when he’s on tour. Oddly, he then went on to say that “there’s hipster in each one of you” and that he bets “there’s Adolf Hitler in each one of you as well.” It seems he was just trying to use an extreme example to say that everyone has some sort of evil or hatred inside them, but his comments have still caused some controversy.

Nergal said the following:

“Culturally, hipsters make the world evolve. Am I hipster myself? I don’t know because I try to run away from any definitions. People love to put stickers on your forehead, and my on forehead there’s a lot of space so I always get more than one. It’s cool.

“If it makes your life easier, it’s cool with me, but trust me, if I’m a hipster then fine, I’m a hipster and a billion other things at the same time.”

“I throw the card out and I do it because that’s what the complexity of human nature is all about. We’re very complex beings and you people, you bashers and accusers, you better learn that.”

“The sooner you learn about that the happier and less frustrated you’re going to be, the less violent and aggressive you’re going to be towards other people because it’s all about yourself.”

“There’s hipster in each one of you. This is going to be very controversial for some people, but I bet there’s Adolf Hitler in each one of you as well, maybe a little percent. We are everything.”

Behemoth Announce “Wolf Ov Siberia” Beer

Behemoth have teamed up with Kings Country Brewers Collective to create a new double IPA called “Wolf Ov Siberia.” According to a press release, the 7.7% ABV beer “pours pale gold in the glass, with a light lupulin haze. A blistering blast of bright lemon and crushed lime greets your nose, followed by grapefruit, melon and green pine from a megaload of Citra, Motueka and Centennial hops. Balanced by soft wheat and flaked rye, with a touch of savage bitterness on the finish.”

Tony Bellis, co-founder of Kings County Brewers Collective, commented:

“We love brewing a wide variety of different beer styles at KCBC and strive to constantly challenge our drinkers’ taste buds – in the same way that Behemoth has consistently pushed the boundaries of metal into brutal, uncharted territories over the years. Having been long time Behemoth fans, we’re incredibly excited to collaborate with them on this killer Double IPA.”

Nergal added:

“Behemoth global domination is still in full effect! After partnering with our friends at Perun to give you a unique craft experience, we thought why just brew beer for the lucky ones in Europe? Kings County Brewers Collective said they could delight the palate of the Americans too! Just in time for our album release October 5th, you’ll be seeing Wolf ov Siberia at a bar near you!”

A “Wolf Ov Siberia” release party will take place at the KCBC Brewery and Taproom in Brooklyn, NY on October 15. The beverage will also be available at the band’s “Thou Art Darkest” art exhibits, which are set to take place in New York on November 3 and Los Angeles on November 25. You can find more details on those HERE.

Behemoth Premiere “Bartzabel” Music Video

Behemoth have premiered a new video for their new song “Bartzabel.” This track is from the band’s new album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest,” which will be released on October 5.

Nergal commented:

“‘Bartzabel’ is a song that came in the midst of a Behemoth rehearsal… We had no structure, no vision — but piece by piece, it came to be, and we were extremely excited by the result. To us, it’s the eye of the ‘I Loved You At Your Darkest’ storm: sonically calmer and slower than anything else on the record, but definitely one of the darkest!

“Lyrically, we (myself and Krzysztof Azarewicz) were inspired by Aleister Crowley’s conjuration of the Spirit of Mars — which the video, by our trusted friends in Grupa 13, depicts beautifully… I may even go as far to say that it’s my favorite Behemoth video of all time! I hope you all enjoy it, and we look forward to ‘I Loved You At Your Darkest”s launch this Friday!”

Soooo… this lil thingy stirred some shit up yesterday! Wow! I’m overwhelmed and flattered at the same time! Pretty much ALL of u HERE understood the intention just spot on! For those who know me well know that I ALWAYS carry along a lot of passion and love for animals… and kids! Maybe coz I still don’t have my own…🙌😊😏 BUT it’s funny to see how all those conservative catholic-driven Polish media picked it up calling “pathetic”. Well… u know my opinion of “concrete” heads and their totalitarian approach… but not ALL of Polish society is brainwashed and I deeply believe the regime of the leading party is soon to end. And with this, ALL the absurd propaganda that they bring along. But NOW I’m curious what do YOU think about it?

Behemoth Premiere “Wolves Ov Siberia” Music Video

Behemoth have premiered a new video for their new song “Wolves Ov Siberia.” This track is from the band’s new album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest,” which will be released on October 5.

Nergal commented:

“‘Wolves ov Siberia‘ was the first song unveiled from ILYAYD, we began playing it on tour in May of this year – the raw energy and dynamism of the song lent itself perfectly to a live context! The studio version doesn’t lose those fundamentals and now with our added intricacies, you will be able to hear the call to Ancient times…the devil is in the detail, after all.

The video was purposefully very different from the well recognised, Behemoth aesthetic – I wanted it to be chaotic, frenzied yet beautiful…I think it was mission accomplished and we’re really happy with the final product from Kyle Kadow and his team! Enjoy it!”
