CONFESSIONS OF A HERETIC: The Sacred and the Profane: Behemoth and Beyond
by Darski, Adam "Nergal" with Mark Eglinton
London: Jawbone Press, 2015. Trade paperback. Fine. Foreword by D. Randall Blythe. Numerous textual illustrations and photographs, including several in color. London: Jawbone Press, 2015. First English-language edition, second printing. The driving force behind controversial Polish blackened death metal band Behemoth, Darski (b.1977), who legally changed his name to "Nergal" (after the Babylonian deity) in 2012, has achieved cult hero status in the international extreme metal underground by virtue of his ferociously articulate belief in the power of euphorically brutal music as an art form. Presented as a series of interrogations by friends and associates, this book delves into his personal life, his musical career, his clashes with the Polish Catholic church (in 2010, he was put on trial on blasphemy charges for publicly denouncing religion by ripping up a Bible on stage), and his recent battle with leukemia. Signed by Nergal on the half-title. Original paper wrappers. A fine copy.
