Puolalaisen death metal -yhtye Behemothin vokalisti / kitaristi Adam ”Nergal” Darski on antanut hiljattain Rocksverige.se:lle haastattelun, jossa mieheltä on kysytty yhtyeen aikomuksista seuraavan albumin suhteen. Adam on haastattelussa paljastanut yhtyeen käyneen studiossa nauhoittamassa materiaalia vielä salaista ilmeisesti teatteriin suunnattua näytöstä varten ja studiossa ollessaan yhtye oli saanut uutta inspiraatiota seuraavan albumin luomista varten. Nergelin mukaan yhtye aikookin todennäköisesti suunnata alunperin ajateltua aikaisemmin studioon nauhoittamaan tulevaa albumiaan. Voit lukea Nergalin mietteitä aiheesta tästä:
”Not really, but I can say that when we were in the studio fucking around with ideas for this theater project, it kind of triggered my creativity and I think I’ll be getting into writing mode earlier than I expected that I would. It’s still too early, but I think I wanna start doing some work in 2016 and I think it would be really smart and good to have a new album out in 2017. But I know how it is — you say something in an interview, and then [people] say, ’You promised there was gonna be a record in 2017.'”
”It’s been two years since the release of ’The Satanist’ and it couldn’t have been done better. I love the record and that’s why we’re playing it and it’s the best-selling one and we’ve gotten the best reviews for it.
”I read an interview with Blackie Lawless [W.A.S.P.] where he said that as soon as the latest record was done and he left the studio, he was already thinking about the next one. I used to be like that, and it’s great to wanna outdo yourself and constantly progress, but by doing that, you sometimes forget to live in the present moment. Art is no different, so what I’ve realized to be aware of is the present moment.
”Today, I’m the happiest artist alive, because I have the strongest fucking album in my hands and I’m super proud and fucking bursting with pride. I don’t really wanna pollute my mind with future projects yet, because I wanna fully explore and enjoy the trip while it’s happening.”
”Everybody’s asking and pushing for the next record, but my question is: ’Do you really wanna have a record that is not going to be one hundred percent honest and driven by whatever economic reasons or contracts? Do you really want that?’
”I would hate to see BEHEMOTH always have a new record out every two years. I’m taking my time and I’m telling people to be patient. Let me live my life. I need to learn and I have to write and fall and I have to rise again and collect all the experiences in order to make something that’s gonna last longer than one or two seasons. It’s like me ripping out my liver and putting it in front of you and go, ’This is it. This is my life.’ That’s the only art I’m interested in performing.”
