BEHEMOTH mastermind Adam “Nergal” Darski and his dark folk/blues/Americana influenced solo project ME AND THAT MAN just released the soulful blues-rock ballad “Angel of Light” featuring the compelling voice of Myrkur — setting another milestone within the scene and following the millions of streams of his previous tracks.
After the first release of the album’s track “Got Your Tongue” (ft. Chris Georgiadis) connected with groovy riffs, humorous acting and a deep hitting bassline, ME AND THAT MAN now presents a different facet with “Angel Of Light” — a soulful blues-rock ballad featuring the intoxicating hum of Amalie Bruun (MYRKUR) — sending shivers right down your spine. The new single comes with a hauntingly beautiful and bittersweet music video, featuring both, Nergal and Myrkur.
Nergal about “Angel Of Light”: “Behold the ‘Angel of Light’! This song is perhaps the most sinister and dark Americana in our repertoire. Whilst we often offer a little smile and wink with our music, this is pure Luciferian splendour delivered by our very own angel, Amalie from Myrkur. It’s all yours now folks! Enjoy!”
Amalie adds: “I am excited to collaborate with Nergal on this song and video, where I play the role of a woman who’s captured by the shadow. She looks for ways out and turns to the ‘Angel Of Light’ for guidance and comfort.”
Following the chart-breaking part one of the album, ME AND THAT MAN are now presenting whole new facets: Opening track “Black Hearse Cadillac,” featuring the vocals of Hank von Hell and guitar sorcery by Anders Odden, marks a sinister beginning to this infernal journey through dark desert soundscapes and evil lyricism. Driving “Under The Spell” (feat. Mary Goore) lives up to its title, at times evoking a spaghetti western-esque ambience. Songs like wicked “Witches Don’t Fall in Love” (feat. Kristoffer Rygg/ULVER), straight-to-the-head rocking “Blues & C*caine” (feat. Michale Graves) and mysterious “Goodbye” — with a haunting yet powerful vocal attack by Alissa White-Gluz – showcase the record’s extensive variety and that there’s something unexpected lurking all throughout. This is further evident on songs like the soulful blues-rock ballad “Angel of Light” featuring the compelling voice of Myrkur, or insanely dynamic, uptempo outburst of “Got Your Tongue” feat. Chris Georgiadis (TURBOWOLF).
After the enticing debut Songs of Love And Death (2017), followed by sophomore release New Man, New Songs, Same Sh*t, Vol.1, its sequel once again mirrors Nergal in a completely different light and provides a tremendous contrast to the extreme metal sounds of BEHEMOTH.
