BEHEMOTH frontman Nergal has posted the following message regarding the group's appearance at last week's Metalist Festival in Tel-Aviv, Israel:
"I'm so happy we've finally managed to get there and do that show...Playing in front of 2000 people was a real blast and will definitely become one of highlights in band's history. I wish we could get on stage earlier coz playing at 3.00 a.m., when people are pretty much tired and drunk is very challenging. Anyway, being there, performing for all of you guys was something I will always remember as a great thing. Hopefully we'll have a chance to meet again...I also wanted to thank all the people who made our stay sooo enjoyable. Our walk down the Via Delorosa was just amazing..."
