BEHEMOTH Frontman Talks Next Album: 'I Feel Pumped. I'm Hungry.'

BEHEMOTH   frontman   Adam "Nergal" Darski   says that he is "very inspired" to make the band's new album.

The follow-up to 2014's   "The Satanist"   will mark   BEHEMOTH 's first effort since   Nergal completed an LP and a short tour with   ME AND THAT MAN , his blues, country and folk side project with British/Polish rock musician   John Porter .

"From now on, my full energy goes on   BEHEMOTH ,"   Nergal   tells   Metal Hammer . "I am super-excited about the lyrics for the new record and it seems like I'll be writing most of it. I'm very inspired.

"When I was done with   'The Satanist' , I was pretty much done with any music," he adds. "I was, like, 'I don't know if there's any more extreme metal music in me.' So I had to level out my energy with   ME AND THAT MAN , and surprisingly, once I went back to the 'black metal cave' after that, I was more creative than ever. I couldn't stop making songs! Usually, I'm super-burnt-out [after an album cycle], but at this stage, not only am I still full of ideas, I feel like I'm on drugs! I feel pumped. I'm hungry."

Regarding what   BEHEMOTH   fans can expect from the band's next disc,   Nergal   says: "[2009's]   'Evangelion'   was the most perfectly recorded and perfect sounding record, but then   'The Satanist'   was something else. The new one is going to be something else once again, I'm sure about it. So when people tell me, 'You need to top   'The Satanist' '… I don't need to top anything. I just want to make sure we take curves with our career. We're gonna take a different direction in order not to get stuck in the same pattern."

Before the release of   BEHEMOTH 's next studio effort, fans will receive a "massive" concert DVD and album recorded during   "The Satanist"   tour, according to   Nergal . There will also be a video for another track off   "The Satanist" , to be included with the DVD.

BEHEMOTH   will join forces with   SLAYER ,   LAMB OF GOD ,   ANTHRAX   and   TESTAMENT   for a massive North American tour in late spring and early summer.
