“I need Me & That Man to keep the balance as the potential of my mother band seems limitless,” says Behemoth frontman Nergal of his intriguing new side project.

Me & That Man – made up of Nergal and British/Polish rock musician John Porter – will release their debut album Songs of Love & Death on March 24; check out the video for the first single My Church Is Black below.

Nergal admits that Me & That Man is the polar opposite of Behemoth. “With Me & That Man, the songs just come out in a very organic way,” he says. “One would be bluesy, one would be more of a ballad, but put together they all made sense. This is not happy music, but it’s liberating.”
