Earlier this month it was revealed that Behemoth frontman Nergal (real name Adam Darski) was hospitalized with an undisclosed illness. The Behemoth camp has now confirmed that said illness is leukemia. Here's the official word:

"Behemoth leader Nergal has just found out he needs a marrow transplant to fight the sickness he has recently been diagnosed with (leukemia). In light of this he wants to remind everyone about the need to be on the marrow registry. The more people get tested and donate, the more of a chance for life there is for him and people in the same situation.

"Behemoth and Metal Blade would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes during this difficult time. The best thing we can all do right now is learn about the marrow donation process, not only help save one of metals leaders, but to also help save countless others out there struggling with the same disease.

"To learn more about how you can register to donate marrow check out: www.marrow.org. Fans wanting to help out, register for the marrow program, or have questions on running a marrow drive may contact the organization Music Saves Lives by email at iCare@musicsaveslives.com or visit Music Saves Lives at www.musicsaveslives.org."
