In a new interview with Ireland’s OverdriveBEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Negal” Darski was asked if there are any plans for the band to celebrate its 30th anniversary next year.

He replied: “Yes, it will be 30 years of BEHEMOTH. Holy f*ck!! [Laughs] Well, I’m going to be straight with you here. I’ve always mocked the fact that in Poland, they always book so many anniversary gigs. No one would give a f*ck otherwise. It’s just one f*cking anniversary show after another one, and I’m, like, ‘So f*cking what.’ I mean, no one really cares.

He continued: “I am aware that people are anticipating something from BEHEMOTH on this one because we didn’t do anything for our 20th or the 25th, and, honestly, I don’t see a reason why we should do something. I’m always too busy with the stuff that’s going on now, in present day.

“There is so much stuff happening at the moment, so, for me, I’d rather just concentrate on the now. I’ve never been a fan of that stuff because it just shows how old we are! [Laughs]. I’d rather show you by my actions that I’m ever inspired and I’m ever driven and I have so much more to say other than just getting people to feed off my history for the sentiment of the fans.

“So, I really don’t know if we will do anything, but what I know for sure is that we’ll be coming back in 2021 with new BEHEMOTH music. I’ve been very productive with both BEHEMOTH and ME AND THAT MAN [Nergal‘s folk side project]. When we’ve been on tour recently, I’ve been working on a lot of new ideas, so you can definitely expect new music as there’s just no time to stop now.”

BEHEMOTH‘s latest album, I Loved You at Your Darkest, was released on October 5, 2018.

I Loved You At Your Darkest marked a milestone in the history of  BEHEMOTH, being not only the most successful album of the band but also an audiovisual masterpiece: From its detailed blasphemious artwork to the highly vicious and at the same time deeply emotional tracks, BEHEMOTH once again played with fire – and ignited a wildfire burning the narrowminded bigotry of christianity down to the ground.
