In a recent interview with Talking Metal podcast, Behemoth mastermind Adam “Nergal” Darski has revealed the story of how and why he wrote the song called “God=Dog”.

He said:

“The reason I wrote [‘God=Dog’], it’s a very subversive statement that goes literally against the Christian dogma. In my daily life… I don’t really want to use this Christian terminology.

If you really want to live a good life, you just let it go. You have to let go. If you want to fly, if you want to go further, you don’t need that extra baggage… There must be like a lot of people that are hurt, and have this immense pain within themselves and problems and issues that they try to project on other people.

In most cases, people who have problems with you, it’s not that you are the problem; it’s that people have problems, and they project [them] on you. What you can do is try to understand them, and I don’t want use the term ‘forgive’ — just be sympathetic.

In most cases, [you end up] thinking, ‘You know what? You’re a fool, but so am I, and we’re just part of this universe — we’re just part of this life [for] maybe 50 or 80 years, and then we die, and we both suffer.‘”
