The album has drawn overwhelmingly positive critical acclaim over the past months, releasing a variety of captivating singles, accompanied by stand-out music videos.

Three years after their initial debut, ME AND THAT MAN has returned with an offering that is indeed different from the first, but in no way less brilliant.

The mysterious collective has surpassed themselves with their bewitching new collection New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1 – featuring ominous lyricism atop unfiltered blues, gothic-laced folk, outlaw country and Americana-influenced anthems.

The enthralling album visits a completely new spectrum of dark desert vibes and sees notable heavy music icons such as Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Brent Hinds, Matt Heafy (Trivium), Ihsahn (Emperor) and Sivert Høyem (Madrugada) join the pact with the devil.

New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1 is a diversified, dynamic masterpiece that presents Nergal in a completely new light, providing a strong contrast to the heavier sounds of Behemoth. Evil has truly never sounded so good.

Overdrive recently spoke to Nergal about the new album, their plans for Bloodstock 2020 and a new Behemoth album for 2021. Get the full feature article here.
