ME and THAT MAN released their debut album, ‘Songs of Love And Death’ via Cooking Vinyl today.
ME and THAT MAN is a meeting at the crossroads; Nergal, the charismatic visionary, free thinker and frontman of Behemoth, one of the most infamous and increasingly successful bands in extreme music and British/Polish rock musician, John Porter. Their debut album, ‘Songs of Love & Death’ is a journey across bleak, dust-ravaged plains, soundtracked by low-slung guitars and steeped in the rawest essence of rock and blues. The tracks draw on dark narratives familiar to fans of Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen and crackle with an evocative, sinister aesthetic.
Nergal is ready to burn the preconceptions people may have about his creative vision. ‘Songs Of Love And Death’ isn’t sonic esoterica, it is an album of simple, yet timeless ideas, all filtered through Nergal’s pitch-black poetic prism. He tells us, “‘My Church Is Black’ is a strong declaration. With Me and That Man, I’m telling simple stories in a simple way, not overloaded with metaphors and hidden meanings. It’s just got to be as natural, organic and stripped down as it can be.”
