Official press release:

Nergal, iconic frontman for Polish blackened death metallers Behemoth made his comeback to the stage this past weekend on May 6 at Mega Club, Katowice in Poland. Nergal did not enter the stage with his fellow Behemoth colleagues rather than with Carl McCoy and Fields of the Nephilim. This marks Nergals first public appearance since his spinal marrow transplant several months ago.

Commented Nergal: "I just came off stage...Katowice, Poland. It was my first performance after the transplant. I don't remember when the last time I was THAT nervous. First of all, I had to join one of my favorite bands ever, true legends, Fields of the Nephilim... secondly, I'm still not 100% in shape so I didn't know how my body would react. I would risk saying I'm maybe 60% of what I used to be... but still progressing! Anyway, We did a song 'Penetration' together with Carl McCoy and Co. What a blast I have to tell you. I had a serious adrenaline rush and it was such a boost of energy I can't even describe. My mouth dried out after 30 seconds so I could hardly breathe but the energy wouldnft let me stop. I was carried away. The moment I saw the crowd, I felt this double bass pounding underneath my feet... I was in trance. I'm counting days 'til we come back with Behemoth full time. 5 months to go...huh."
