The countdown timer has come to an end and Behemoth frontman/guitarist Nergal has shared the first single from his folk, etc. project, Me And That Man. John Porter joins him in that outfit, who will release their debut album “Songs Of Love And Death” on March 24th. You can pre-order that outing here. Nergal commented of the project:

“This album is not meant to turn Me and That Man fans into Behemoth fans. If one day they follow, OK. Something like ‘My Church Is Black‘ is a strong declaration, a song that naturally invites people from the extreme metal world, and perhaps they’ll want to enter this world too. They might even like it. With Me and That Man, I’m telling simple stories in a simple way, not overloaded with metaphors and hidden meanings. It’s just got to be as natural, organic and stripped down as it can be.”

“With Me & That Man, the songs just come out in a very organic way. One would be bluesy, one would be more of a ballad, but put together they all made sense. I need Me & That Man to keep the balance, as the potential of my mother band seems limitless. It gets bigger and bigger, more advanced and more sophisticated… and darker …and blacker. But Me & That Man is at the opposite pole, artistically speaking.

With all the best art, once you have it in you, you have to release it, otherwise it becomes intoxicating and dangerous to your own system. This is how I deal with my emotions and my dark feelings and shadows. This is not happy music, but it’s liberating.

This is a side-project, but I don’t really know what it’s going to grow into. The idea was just to get this music out to people. There’s no hidden agenda. It is what it is, and if you like it, it’s cool. If you don’t, that’s cool too. This is the battle we’ve already won.”
