Nergal’s ME AND THAT MAN drop new song, ‘Under The Spell’ feat. the mysterious Mary Goore

Behemoth mastermind Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski and his dark folk/blues/Americana project ME AND THAT MAN continues its celebrity team-up with another new single and video, ‘Under the Spell’ featuring the mysterious Mary Goore. The track is taken from the upcoming album, ‘New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 2’ which is set to arrive this Friday 19th November via Napalm Records.

In contrast to the last single, soulful yet dark, blues-rock ballad ‘Angel of Light’ (ft. Myrkur), ME AND THAT MAN now enters heavier realms. Thick guitars, a galloping duo of snare with bass, and the raspy tingling, familiar voice of featured guest, Mary Goore create an ambience full of untamed anger with an unmistakable vintage Western touch.

About ‘Under the Spell’, Nergal tells us:

“Here we go folks! We’re back again, this time with ‘Under The Spell’, featuring Mary Goore. It’s rockabilly on steroids – I love the song. It’s a part of ME AND THAT MAN that we hadn’t yet explored in this form. For now, enjoy the single, the full album will be with you soon!”

Following the chart-topping part one of the album, ME AND THAT MAN now present a new collection of guests for Vol. 2. Opening track, ‘Black Hearse Cadillac’, featuring the vocals of Hank von Hell and guitar sorcery from Anders Odden, marks a sinister beginning to this infernal journey through dark desert soundscapes and evil lyricism. The driving ‘Under The Spell’ (feat. Mary Goore) lives up to its title, at times evoking a spaghetti western-esque ambience. Songs like the wicked ‘Witches Don’t Fall in Love’ (feat. Kristoffer Rygg/Ulver), straight-to-the-head rocking ‘Blues & Cocaine’ (feat. Michale Graves) and mysterious ‘Goodbye’ – with a haunting yet powerful vocal from Alissa White-Gluz – showcase the record’s extensive variety and that there’s something unexpected lurking all throughout. This is further evident on songs like dark and esoteric blues-rock ballad ‘Angel of Light‘ featuring the compelling voice of Myrkur, or the insanely dynamic, uptempo outburst of ‘Got Your Tongue’ feat. Chris Georgiadis (Turbowolf).

After the enticing debut ‘Songs of Love And Death’ (2017), followed by 2020’s ‘New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1’, its sequel once again mirrors Nergal in a completely different light and provides a tremendous contrast to the extreme metal sounds of BEHEMOTH.
