THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Three years after their initial debut, Me And That Man – Adam (Nergal) Darski’s dark folk/blues solo project – have returned with their sophomore release, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit Vol. 1. Upon release, Me And That Man’s debut album Songs of Love and Death cast a spell on the world. Now, the mysterious collective has surpassed themselves with their bewitching new offer – consisting of menacing lyrics atop unfiltered blues, gothic-laced folk, outlaw country and Americana-influenced anthems.
The enthralling album visits a completely new spectrum of dark desert vibes and sees noteable heavy music icons such as Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Matt Heafy (Trivium) and Siver Høyem (Madrugada) join the pact with the devil. Jørgen Munkeby’s (Shining NO) distinctive vocals and saxophone contributions weave throughout the first single, Run With The Devil, a foot-stomping blues-rock anthem with an upbeat tempo and indelible hook. Songs like the outlaw-infused Burning Churches, featuring the raspy voice of Mat McNerney (Grave Pleasures), the gloomy, soulful Surrender, featuring Anders Landelius (Dead Soul), and the mournful country ballad Confession, performed with Niklas Kvarforth (Shining SE), make this standout album a surefire repeat listen. New Man, New Songs, Same Shit Vol. 1 is a diversified, dynamic masterpiece that presents Nergal in a completely new light, providing a strong contrast to the heavier sounds of Behemoth. Evil has truly never sounded so good.”
