Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere Video For New Song “Confession” Feat. Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth

Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have premiered a new video for their new song “Confession.” This track features Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth and it will appear on the band’s new album “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1,” which is set to be released on March 27. Nergal commented:

“‘Confession‘ – an ode to gunslingers and saloon singers! The ending will surprise those who aren’t aware of my other half and I hope it will put a smile on the faces of those that do; a statement, Me And That Man is limitless and capable of anything. ‘That Man’ for this one, Niklas Kvarforth. I sent Niklas a demo; my voice and lyrics and suggested he change anything he felt he should… only two words from the original demo version remain and happy to report, his version is way better! Some people compared his performance to Peter Steele… that gives me some ideas for the afterlife! Enjoy!”

Behemoth To Release New Music In 2021

During a recent interview with Overdrive, Behemoth’s Nergal was asked if the band are planning to celebrate their 30th anniversary next year. The frontman responded by saying that he is not sure if they will be doing anything to commemorate the milestone, but he did add that they will be releasing new music in 2021.

Nergal said the following:

“Yes, it will be 30 years of BEHEMOTH. Holy fuck!! [Laughs] Well, I’m going to be straight with you here. I’ve always mocked the fact that in Poland, they always book so many anniversary gigs. No one would give a fuck otherwise. It’s just one fucking anniversary show after another one, and I’m, like, ‘So fucking what.’ I mean, no one really cares.

I am aware that people are anticipating something from BEHEMOTH on this one because we didn’t do anything for our 20th or the 25th, and, honestly, I don’t see a reason why we should do something. I’m always too busy with the stuff that’s going on now, in present day. There is so much stuff happening at the moment, so, for me, I’d rather just concentrate on the now. I’ve never been a fan of that stuff because it just shows how old we are! [Laughs]. I’d rather show you by my actions that I’m ever inspired and I’m ever driven and I have so much more to say other than just getting people to feed off my history for the sentiment of the fans.

So, I really don’t know if we will do anything, but what I know for sure is that we’ll be coming back in 2021 with new BEHEMOTH music. I’ve been very productive with both BEHEMOTH and ME AND THAT MAN [Nergal’s folk side project]. When we’ve been on tour recently, I’ve been working on a lot of new ideas, so you can definitely expect new music as there’s just no time to stop now.”

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere Music Video For New Song “By The River” Feat. Ihsahn

Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have premiered a new video for their new song “By The River.” This track features Ihsahn and it will appear on the band’s new album “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1,” which is set to be released on March 27.

Nergal commented:

“When the rumours first emerged of me collaborating with Rob Halford and Ihsahn, the idea sparked imaginations. I guess people would expect a Nergal and Ihsahn partnership to be extreme, but what came out was a bare bones, blues banger!

I’ve got to tell you; it wasn’t an easy sell…at first Ihsahn didn’t think there was much he could add – luckily, I knew different and I gave him a simple instruction, ‘have fun’. A week later I got the track back and I was totally blown away!

Considering the status of the man, he is humble and professional to the core. It was my pleasure to work with him and now it’s our pleasure to present to you, ‘By The River’!”

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere “Męstwo” Video

Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have premiered a new video for their new song “Męstwo.” This track is from the band’s new album “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1,” which will be released on March 27. Nergal commented:

“When our drummer, Kuman first sent me the demo version of ‘Męstwo‘, I was immediately drawn to it – it’s a simple song and simply written but totally honest and genuine. It’s the only song on the record I sing on and it’s exclusively Polish. ‘Męstwo‘ translates to manhood; in this world of judgement, prejudice and struggle, the message of the song is to remain on your own course, to stay motivated and follow your own intuition – this is what manhood represents to me.”

Behemoth Premiere “Rom 5:8” Music Video
