I’m not a fan of Behemoth, but anyone can tell when bad news is bad news, and this is some damn bad news. Behemoth frontman and guitarist Nergal‘s medical condition has been diagnosed as Leukemia, a type of cancer affecting the white blood cells and bone marrow. Sadly, the disease has progressed to the point where chemotherapy would no longer be helpful, needing a bone marrow transplant.
Metal Underground reports that his fiance, pop star Doda, has donated her bone marrow, but whether or not she is a match remains to be seen.
I’m sure I speak for all of the writers here at HBIH when I say that we hope that Nergal can recover from this. You’re in our thoughts, man. Hang in there!
