Behemoth frontman, Nergal sat down with Bloodstock TV ahead of his headline performance at this years’ Bloodstock Festival, where he talks about his return to Bloodstock, the imminent tour with Arch Enemy, Carcass and Unto Others, and news of a new book!

Having headlined the infamous Ronnie James Dio stage at this years Bloodstock Festival, Behemoth frontman, Nergal invited us into his dressing room, before he took to the stage.

When asked about the forthcoming new setlist for the tour, the frontman responded, “We are going to include one or two new tracks from the new album. We’re going to refresh the setlist. We’re not going to replicate the ‘American siege’ we did with Arch Enemy a few months ago.

He continues; “We like to challenge ourselves. I really need to feel challenged on stage. We have lots of theatrics and without giving any spoilers away, it’s gonna be fucking incredible. “

When asked if there will be a follow-up to his book, ‘Confessions of a Heretic‘ [2012], the singer responded: “I’m not thinking anymore. Yes, it’s going to happen“…
