BEHEMOTH Named 'Artist Of 2010' By Polish Portal

Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH have been named "Artist Of 2010" by the readers of one of the biggest Polish portals,

Commented BEHEMOTH's leukemia-stricken guitarist/vocalist Adam "Nergal" Darski: "Well, let me start with saying that most probably no one takes such polls very seriously. However, it is always great to see the commitment of people, fans, who vote with such intensity and support their favorite artist.

"Thank you very much for this! : )

"I would also like to comment the presence of my fiancée Doda [26-year-old Polish pop singer Dorota Rabczewska; pictured below with Nergal] in the front ranks... If you sum our votes you will see that we have the monopoly and nobody can win with us! Apart from that — all stays in the family, doesn't it? Haha.

"Someone asked me today: 'What would you do if Dorota wins?' Well, to lose with her is to win in fact : ) ...

"Once again, regards to all the involved! Horns up!"

According to reports in the Polish media, Darski underwent a bone marrow transplant procedure on December 17, having found a donor that was a genetic match. He will spend the next couple of weeks in an isolation room at the hematology division of Uniwersyteckie Centrum Kliniczne (UCK) in Gdansk to avoid any infection while his immune system is low.

BEHEMOTH's "Evangelia Heretika" DVD was released in the U.S. on November 9 via Metal Blade Records, in Poland via Mystic Records, and in the rest of Europe through Nuclear Blast. It contains three discs featuring two full shows ("Live In Paris 2008" and "Live In Warsaw 2009"); every BEHEMOTH music video ever made; "Evangelion" tour documentary featuring band interviews plus tons of backstage footage; and a bonus "Live in Warsaw" audio CD.
