Extreme Metal Community Stands Behind Behemoth Frontman As He Battles Leukemia

(Rock News Desk) Behemoth frontman Nergal lost his fiancee but found faith in humanity during his recent battle against leukemia, he says. The Polish blackened metal artist was diagnosed with bone cancer at the end of last year and reports his form of the disease was so fast-moving he had to undergo medical treatment immediately. But he also responded very quickly, and is looking forward to a full recovery.

Nergal, real name Adam Darski, tells Revolver: "It was good to see how everyone really cared about me it was helpful. My bandmates Inferno and Orion appeared on TV asking people to give blood and do tests for bone marrow. The whole extreme metal community was standing behind me. I wouldn't have expected that. I was happy to see how many people cared about human beings, not just about a guy in a band.

"I don't really value the human race that much but this experience brought back a lot of faith in human beings. It's very positive at the end of the day." more on this story
