Alternative country/folk duo Me and That Man started as an offshoot project for Nergal; best known as the frontman of Polish black metal group Behemoth.
The band was created as another source of emotional relief for Nergal, allowing him to express thoughts and feelings that he couldn't quite fit into the world of black metal -- although some of the prevalent themes were covered, the tone was markedly different from anything he had written before. Unable to fully realize the project alone, Nergal recruited British/Polish rock musician John Porter to create the sound he was looking for. Me and That Man's debut album, Songs of Love and Death, saw release in 2017, instantly drawing comparisons to the likes of Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Nick Cave. ~ Liam Martin, Rovi
