Peter Bailey of the Wrexham, Wales, United Kingdom-based "Metalheadz" radio show conducted an interview with vocalist/guitarist Adam "Nergal" Darski of Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH on October 23, 2009 at Wulfrun Hall in Wolverhampton during the band's U.K. tour with DEVILDRIVER and SUICIDE SILENCE. Watch the chat below.

In a recent interview with, Nergal stated about the band's decision to call its new album "Evangelion", "'Evangelion' is a word that comes from the Greek and it stands for 'good message,' according to the Bible. It's basically about spreading the word of God. We have our own way of looking at these things and we actually... I'm not trying to tell you that we feel like apostles, you know (laughs), that we've got our denomination across the world and trying to convert people from Christianity to whatever else, other systems. That's not the point. The point is that we are here to spread the word about the divine potential of every human being and that's how we see that. It's a very rebellious, very provocative, very epic in sound and title and that's how I see it. It's awesome — it fits the whole concept so well, it fits the music, it fits everything. I just love it, I thought it was perfect."

Regarding the inspiration for the songwriting on "Evangelion", Nergal said, "As usual, I was pissed off. I wasn't really at peace with myself and with the surrounding world. But it's not that I'm like super-frustrated or anything like that; I'm probably like every human being, probably just a little bit more sensitive to certain situations. But we just wanted to deliver great music, the best BEHEMOTH record, the ultimate BEHEMOTH record, the record that's going to be very liberating in its form. We didn't want to compete with anyone or anything — we wanted to release our own, true inner spirit and that's what we did. We didn't look at anything, any opinions — media, fans — we didn't give a fuck about anything, you know? All we gave a fuck (about) was how much pleasure it gives us to perform these new songs in the rehearsal room and that's how we did it. It was awesome. It felt great, it just sounded great and we enjoyed it. We were like, 'Okay, this is going to a great song,' and that's it, man. I don't remember when it was the last time that we were.... I mean, like 'Apostasy' was like over-analyzing, over-thinking, just going towards too many directions, making a record that was very diverse, but was losing the focus, was losing the impact. This new one is very diverse, but it has a super strong impact; that's what differentiates 'Evangelion' from 'Apostasy'. And (with) 'Evangelion' there's definitely a parallel with 'Demigod', because 'Demigod' was a strong impact, but it was definitely a less diverse... there just wasn't as many dimensions on 'Demigod' that are on 'Evangelion'."
