Behemoth are an extreme metal act from Poland. They are excellent musicians with a very strong visual presentation and image. Their music, videos, artwork, live performances are all very nihilistic and horrific- Stuff the metal kids really love. 

I was absolutely stoked to secure this interview with band leader and main man  "Nergal" because this guy is not only a modern extreme metal cult figure, but also a fully fledged entrepreneur with his fingers in numerous and various business ventures.

Apart from exploiting the standard music income streams like shows, touring, physical & digital music sales and merchandise (which Behemoth do exceptionally well), Nergal is also an accomplished entrepreneur with numerous other businesses outside of his band including a bar/night club and two barber shops, plus overseeing licensing ventures with beer brewers and a whole lot more.

Adam "Nergal" Darski is Black Metal's Behemoth Entrepreneur.

Enjoy!

In today's episode of Music business Facts I am lucky enough to briefly speak with legendary and influential guitarist Ace Frehley- The original (and best) space man from rock Gods KISS.

This is obviously an interesting episode of MBF because Ace doesn't care too much to talk about music business or money- preferring to outsource that stuff to his lawyers and personal assistances. 

Nonetheless it's still a super exciting episode where we discuss things like royalties, trademarks, merchandise, relationships with Gene and Paul and more. Enjoy
