Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have been in the studio as of late. The following photos were shared:
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!”
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.
“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, 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 frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has revealed the details for his new Me And That Man album “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1.” The effort, which will be released on March 27, features a number of guests including Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, Trivium’s Matt Heafy, and more.

“With the utmost pride and… kind of relief;,I present to you, the second ME AND THAT MAN album — ‘New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1′. This time ’round, I wanted to take on a different challenge and curated an album of 11 songs — each with their own character and vibe, alongside the most talented and important individuals across the whole scene. Together, we take trips to the lands of blues, folk, country and even spaghetti western. Only time will tell if we hit the mark, but I deeply believe so. I’m very proud of this piece of work and it has been a monumental task to achieve.
I would like to thank EACH one of our guests for being part of this project: Mat and Matt, Niklas and Jørgen, Corey, Alan, Addi, Brent, Vegard, Sivert, Anders, Rob, Jerome, Johanna and Nicke. I LOVE you all from here to the moon and back! Without the passion and heart you granted us, this wouldn’t have been possible!”
Two songs from the album, Run With The Devil” (feat. Jørgen Munkeby) and “Burning Churches” (feat. Mat McNerney), have already been released and a video for the third single, “Surrender” (feat. Anders Landelius and Rob Caggiano), can be found below:
Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have released a new Christmas song titled “Burning Churches.“ This track features Mat McNerney (Grave Pleasures, etc.) and an animated music video for it can be found below:
“If someone would have told me one day, I’d release a Xmas song, I would have burst into laughter. Hell freezes over and I present to you, ‘Burning Churches‘. This time I team up with Mat McNerney from the legendary Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures, DHG and Hexvessel. Make yourself comfortable around the Christmas tree, stoke the fire and grab yourself a drink! Hallelujah.”
A press release offered more info on the track:
“The story of ‘Burning Churches‘ goes much deeper than a first glance or listen might suggest. The new single tackles the dark, mournful tale of a young boy who was abused by a priest in his childhood. By swearing vengeance on the church and radicalizing himself, he transforms into a sort of satanic anti-hero who seems to gather more followers by the second. ‘Burning Churches‘ to the ground, one by one, he gets his revenge. Me And That Man presents the story in yet another grim snapshot with an elaborate comic strip depiction.”
Me And That Man have premiered a new song titled “Run With The Devil.“ This track features Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) and an official video for it can be found below:
Nergal (Behemoth) commented:
“This one was a lot of fun! When I first started thinking of the imagery to the track, I wanted to create something more than a music video, I wanted a music movie which carries on from where ‘Nightride‘ left off. Don’t take it too seriously, we’re metaphorically burying the past and bringing in a new! A great way to introduce the next incarnation of Me And That Man… but what next? Stick around, there is plenty of rather splendid things to see soon!”
