ME AND THAT MAN, the blues/dark folk/Americana project from Behemoth mastermind, Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski, has today revealed a brand new song, the soulful blues-rock ballad ‘Angel of Light’ featuring the entrancing voice of Amalie Bruun (Myrkur). The single is taken from ME AND THAT MAN’s new studio album, ‘New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 2’, set for release via Napalm Records on 19th November 2021. You can pre-order or pre-save here.
The collection features an array of special guest vocalists across a diverse range of tracks, with last month’s lead track, ‘Got Your Tongue, feat. Chris Georgiadis’ of Turbowolf, leading the charge. The single’s groovy riffs, slick video and deep pulsing bassline set the scene, but for this second single, the band showcase a different vibe, with this intoxicating, hauntingly beautiful and bittersweet music video, featuring both Nergal and Myrkur which can be viewed below.
Talking about ‘Angel Of Light’, Nergal tells us;
“Behold the “Angel of Light”! This song is perhaps the most sinister and dark Americana in our repertoire. Whilst we often offer a little smile and wink with our music, this is pure Luciferian splendour delivered by our very own angel, Amalie from Myrkur. It’s all yours now folks! Enjoy!”
“I am excited to collaborate with Nergal on this song and video, where I play the role of a woman who’s captured by the shadow. She looks for ways out and turns to the “Angel Of Light” for guidance and comfort.”
Following the chart-breaking and critically acclaimed antecedent, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1 (2020), the new offering showcases an abundance of heavy music icons, but this time, it’s taken to a whole new level. Experience the likes of Gary Holt (Slayer, Exodus), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Mary Goore, Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God), Myrkur, Devin Townsend, David Vincent, Doug Blair (W.A.S.P), Hank von Hell (Turbonegro) and Olve ‘Abbath’ Eikemo (Immortal, Abbath) intertwining with the album’s collection of occult anthems. This symbiosis of unfiltered blues, gothic-laced folk, essence of dark outlaw country and a touch of evil you’ll swear was either beamed straight out of hell or the most blackened of churches.
