Behemoth frontman Nergal recently hinted at the future arrival of fresh musical creations from his blasphemous band. In a recent interview with the Everblack podcast, Nergal revealed that the focus in 2024 will be exclusively on making new Behemoth music.
"Well, the plan is to focus on Behemoth mainly next year. I'm doing like a short run with Me And That Man in late March, or early April and that's it. And all the rest, it's gonna be dedicated like full-on Behemoth." he said.
"I have no Me And That Man music in me for some reason anymore. Eventually, it's gonna come back. It's like tides — it's off and on and off and on, and when it happens, you've gotta catch that tide, that wave, and just jump on it and surf," Nergal said. "But there's no surfing now for Me And That Man. There's surfing for Behemoth for sure."
When asked if Behemoth's new music was on the way anytime soon, Nergal didn't divulge specific details about the musical direction or themes of the upcoming release but confirmed there were developments, in a laconic fashion: "There's new music. Next question."
Nergal previously stated way back in January also on the Everblack podcast that Behemoth was planning to hit the studio sometime in 2023 to record "an EP or something."
"[Opvs Contra Natvram is] a new record, it's a fresh record, of course, but for me it's not new anymore," he said. "I mean, the [songs] are, like, what? Two, three years old. And I've got a bunch of ideas for future endeavors. Just don't be surprised if you see or read that Behemoth is in the studio sooner than later.
"I'm sure next year we'll be just doing something. I don't know. Maybe something smaller; maybe an EP or something. I mean, I'm writing. I've got ideas. I don't wanna stop. I have my moments that I get burnt out and I get bored and shit; there's tons of things going, and the overall vibe in the world is fucking — let's put it mildly — weird… But I don't wanna stop."
