INTERVIEW : Nergal from BEHEMOTH talks Download Festival, Lords of Chaos and touring with Slayer
'it's going to be a celebration of metal!' Nergal proclaims when discussing the line up for the Australian Download Festival, which boasts legendary bands such as Judas Priest, Alice in Chains, Ghost and Slayer who will sadly be calling it a day after this world tour.
This week, Poland's most notorious extreme metal band BEHEMOTH will return to Australia for not only the Download Festival in Sydney and Melbourne but two sideshows with Anthrax and Slayer, which some are already calling the must see gigs of the year! On the eve of the Brisbane show, Nev Pearce spoke to Nergal for the Everblack Podcast about the Download Festival, the sideshows with Slayer and Anthrax, the friendships he has built with them, his thoughts on the Lords of Chaos movie and even a possible punk side project!

Late last year, Behemoth released I Loved You At Your Darkest, the follow up to the critically acclaimed The Satanist and their most dynamic record to date, available now through EVP Recordings.
