  • Attila from Dunavarsány, HungaryBassam, it only gets worse for people who like that kind of music (good music), and it gets better for the mainstream... That means they're selling out. Like Metallica: Once probably the greatest band of all time, now a piece of mainstream crap...

    I fully agree with Nergal, and the lyrics are just awesome!
  • Daniel from Derby, KsNo lyrics.... could it be that nobody can understand what they're saying? hehe just saying... this type of music is good... gets me pumped up
  • Bassam from Sydney, Australiap.s. i too agree with nergal, another thing you can notice this change that nergal is talking about in musicians, it's when their music starts to suck.
  • Brendan from Easton, CtActually, I quite enjoy this song. I also happen to agree, somewhat, with Nergal's message. For those of you who don't know Behemoth that well, Nergal is a college educated, very intelligent man, he can talk most people into circles. It's hard to argue with him here.
