BEHEMOTH's Nergal Finds Bone Marrow Donor! - Band's Latest DVD Certified Platinum - ORDER A SIGNED COPY BY NERGAL HIMSELF!

Back in early August, Polish extreme metal icons BEHEMOTH were forced to cancel all future tour plans due to front man Nergal (real name: Adam Darski) being rushed to the hospital after falling ill. It was later revealed that the Polish extreme metal legend was diagnosed with leukemia.

Ever since it was announced, metal heads, musicians and industry folks from around the world have been supporting the 33 year old icon through campaigns to find him the perfect match.

Nergal recently updated the official Behemoth website confirming that they have finally found an exact match, stating:

"Hello everyone! I’m still in the hospital but in quite a good shape so I write to let you know about my health and the further stages of treatment. I’ve been through four planned chemotherapies and have stayed in hospital for over 3 months now. I’ve gone through the whole therapy smoothly, though I also had a couple of difficult moments.

All this means I finish the stage of pharmacological treatment and I am about to start the irradiation and then the marrow transplant. Yes, we’ve found a donor! Having searched for months, the fundation has found a person whose genotype is identical to mine. It would have been difficult to achieve if it wasn’t for the support of so many people. Most of all, I want to express my admiration for Dorota - my wonderful and devoted fiancée. She did everything she could to help me and many other people, regardless of adversities and comments which were often unfair. Your help is invaluable! Thank you! I love you.

On behalf of me and all other people ill I thank everyone who registered in the bone marrow bank regardless of origin, skin colour or religion. The concerts for charity have been organised all over the world and people of show business, bands and, most of all, the fans got deeply involved. You are beyond great! One of you made my transplant possible, but remember, your attitude may save many others in need.

So I appeal to everyone: don’t stop the madness! The march for victory continues!

Horns up!"
