Total Guitar - - SCENE -

Be­he­moth may be the big­gest name in ex­treme metal right now, but main­man Adam ‘Ner­gal’ Darski drew in­spi­ra­tion from his acous­tic gui­tar and mel­lower Me And That Man project for new al­bum I Loved You At Your Dark­est (out 5 Oc­to­ber, re­viewed p16). “The fact that I could get away from my black metal cave and ex­plore more tra­di­tional gen­res of rock and blues has changed my per­spec­tive a lot,” he tells us. “The an­cient rock ’n’ roll for­mula is the key for song struc­ture but this time I wrote all the songs just sit­ting at my sofa play­ing my Gretsch acous­tic… no amp, noth­ing. So this de­ter­mined the songs and riff­ing a lot… I would just fo­cus on the right chords and at­mos­phere… the groove.”
