BEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has revealed the title for his upcoming country and folk inspired album to TeamRock at this year’s Bloodstock Festival: “The record is going to be titled Love Is A Dog From Hell, which we stole from Charles Bukowski. But he’s dead, so he’s going to have no problem with that whatsoever. I’m super-proud of it.”
He also said he wants “extreme” views about the album from BEHEMOTH fans: “The more radical and more extreme they are, the more delighted I will be. The worst thing you can get is people just saying, ‘Yeah, it’s OK.’
“I want people to either say, ‘Fuck you, asshole. I’m throwing out all the Behemoth records because of all this crap you recorded.’ That’s what I would love to see on one hand.
“And on the other, ‘All that piece of shit Behemoth stuff you’ve done, I don’t want you to scream any more.’ I want to get both reactions.”
He continues: “It’s influenced by everything from Neil Young, early Nick Cave, Seasick Steve and Wovenhand. It’s got some Clash, some Damned, some post-punk influence as well. It’s got some country notes as well. It’s really diverse.”
