Behemoth's Nergal Hints At Influences On Next Album (Top Story)
And Adam 'Nergal' Darski reveals he listens to classic rock bands and artists from other genres when writing a record - admitting he's "getting more into blues" as he grows older.
Nergal tells Asq me: "Theres some rigid strength in the punk scene - they have this thing that makes you come back to the origins like a boomerang. I drift away, then come back to classic heavy metal, punk, goth. I'm not a big goth fan but Fields Of The Nephilim is a classic. Once in a while I rediscover them for myself, like Bauhaus and Siekiera, Sabbath, David Bowie coming back with a new record."
Nergal also says that it's "crucial" that younger fans explore the roots of rock and metal by listening to bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and the Beatles - and that they should check out blues artists including Howling Wolf, Robert Johnson and Buddy Guy."
