Behemoth's Nergal Says He Got 'Angry & Confused' as Judge on 'The Voice': They Thought I Was Satanist


“This guy is a Satanist and we’re so Catholic and proper. He’s not allowed to be there.”
During a conversation with KCAL 96.7, Behemoth leader Adam “Nergal” Darski discussed his experience of being one of the judges on the Polish edition of “The Voice” show back in 2011.

Saying that “The Voice” journey was “a cool experience” in general, the musician pointed out that he did encounter a few unpleasant moments. He commented (transcribed by Ultimate Guitar):
I got super, super confused and angry because – I was one of the juries, but they’d go, ‘This guy is a Satanist and we’re so Catholic and proper. He’s not allowed to be there.’
“But the contract was already signed so they couldn’t kick me out of the TV show. They decided to keep me, and then I won with my contestant (Damian Ukeje) – we won ‘The Voice,’ which is awesome.

I would ask him to sing all these rock, heavy metal songs, which was a good change for TV. Not some cheesy pop songs, but Metallica, Nirvana, Maiden… good stuff, quality stuff. So I’m happy, it was a good experience.”
Then I got the check, which I really needed because that’s why I did that. I kept in mind, ‘Hey, you’re doing this for money, but don’t forget to rock ‘n’ roll.’ So I did rock ‘n’ roll and then I was, like, ‘Okay, bye, that’s it’.”

I’m not going back there, I’m not interested. I think I’m still not done with the movies. If there’s a theater play at some point when Behemoth is not super busy – which is not likely happening anytime soon – but if there’s a gap, I’ll be, ‘OK, I’d love to do that.'”
