What’s Nergal from Behemoth done with his time over lockdown? Loads of yoga, if you look at his Instagram. Also: working on new music. A follow-up to Behemoth’s awesome 2018 album I Loved You At Your Darkest remains elusive, but in the meantime, he’s announced details of the third LP from his dark country band, Me And That Man. And the cast list is, as ever, huge.

Due on November 19 via Napalm Records, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 2 finds Nergal hooking up, among others, Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Devin Townsend, Hank Von Hell (ex-Turbonegro), Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden, Wolfsbane), Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver), David Vincent (ex-Morbid Angel, Vltimas), Amalie Bruun (Myrkur), Abbath and many more.
