Nergal of Behemoth

Behemoth has cancelled all upcoming appearances, including the upcoming tour with Watain/Withered/Black Anvil. Details can be found in the (messily) translated statement below issued on the Polish portion of their official website...

....

Before the Polish media are bombarded with gossip and false information about the health of a team leader and future plans to publish a statement Behemoth Nergal written by:

"I do not want to bore you with details, but I can no longer hide the fact that I was seriously ill and waiting for my multi-stage treatment, which can take up to several months. Thus, we refer the coming summer festivals, planned for September and October tour of Russia and the Baltic States and the November tour of the USA. I know that this is not the best news for you, but health is most important. I've got a rather difficult period, and a lot of work but I became hardened in the fire, is not it? You know me, so that you know that out of this stronger than ever. Then all the concerts also will plan from scratch and even greater momentum. There are currently feeling well, my head is sfokusowana to fight the disease, everything is under control professionals. I have with me the most wonderful and loving woman, family, team, managers and people from publishing companies who are doing everything to support me. Do not ask for more than just a little bit of patience. I would add that the fact that in the near future we will not be touring with does not go into hibernation. We have a lot to offer you in the coming months, Behemoth will work on many other fronts. In coming days expect release of our latest clip "Alas, Lord Is Upon Me." Ensures that this is the most perfect, the most provocative and stimulating I have ever made a picture. In addition, finish work on the DVD release trzyp?ytowym "Evangelia Heretika" which will be released in November of that year effort Mystic Prod This month we open our shop in the whole world, while working on new designs T-shirts and sophisticated gadgets that are in it available. That would be enough ... we will keep you informed of what's happening in our camp. Horns Up! "

The NYC show was scheduled to take place at Irving Plaza on December 2nd (and is currently still on sale - don't buy tickets!)

on Polish tv news last night they said he has leukemia and is in serious condition, then they talked about bone marrow transplants etc. If true they should publicize this, maybe one of his fans could save his life.
