Nergal has Leukemia
2010-08-24 by deathridesahorse | 78 Comments

Behemoth revealed Nergal was suffering from an unspecified illness which Metal Underground has now revealed to be leukemia.

“…the disease has advanced to the point where chemotherapy can no longer be an effective treatment and can only be cured through a bone marrow transplant.

“Within the country of Poland, there are only 100,000 donors out of a population of 38,192,000. Nergal’s fiance Doda has already donated her bone marrow but it’s unknown if her bone marrow will provide a DNA match.”

According to MetalSucks.net plans for benefit concerts in Poland are underway but details are still to be announced.

If he does that im throwing out all my Behemoth albums and burning them.
They tried to do that with Anton LeVay. Media said that right before he died he said he was wrong about Satanism and Hell. What a bunch of worthless filthy humans. Anyways, again, Nergal better fucking survive and be even more Satanic then ever

I doubt Nergal is Satanic. If you listen to their lyrics, he's pretty clearly Thelemic. But yeah, this really blows, I'm pretty shocked by this. Seriously hoping everything goes fine.

If you're a Polish Catholic and end up being one of the few eligible donors, do you do it? Like, would you be morally opposed to it because of who he is, or morally opposed to not doing something to save someone's life?

Good point. The bible says that you are supposed to save anyone regardless of who he is if you can, but I wouldn't be surprised if some catholic guy refused to donate his marrow to save a blasphemous death metal singer

As a devout Catholic myself I'd absolutely donate, I don't know anyone who wouldn't. But after he'd recovered I'd probably whip out Romans 6:23 and tell him he's got a second chance. And then I'd tell him to make another Demigod.

The idea that Nergal has cancer because of bible burning or blasphemy of any kind is false.
Just as many Catholics/Christians get cancer as anyone else, and by that logic it could only mean A: their god has deserted them, or B: god/devil had nothing to do with it; shit happens - Nergal has cancer because Nergal has cancer. Simple as that.

I'm still surprised some fanatical Dio fan didn't donate his own stomach when Ronnie announced he had cancer. Waiting for some br00tal fan to donate his marrow, bones'n'all.
