Piotr Wietrowski, Krzysztof Azarewicz «Adam Nergal Darski: Spowiedz heretyka. Sacrum profanum»
Despite the book is claimed to be an interview with Nergal, all the questions of Peter and Krishtof are arranged logically so there’s no doubt – it’s a biography. Or rather an autobiography since Adam tells about all the stages of his private, professional and any kind of activity on the basis of the leading questions.
The story is divided into sections, chapters, subchapters; they are all numbered and in some cases even given pretty dramatic titles and pictures. Pictures – there’s plenty of them, really. Photos, illustrations, scans, various archive materials. I’ve heard some opinions that their amount is excessive towards the amount of text, but I disagree.
Unlike many biographies, pics aren’t arranged in 2-3 sets of inserts, but scattered throughout the text since they illustrate it directly. And it’s much more convenient. When you read about the young Adam-wrestler – here are the scans of his drawings of the techniques he invented; it’s told about the first electro guitar – here’s the pic; the official renunciation of Christianity, fight against cancer – here you are, pics related to this facts again. The text images overlap the visual ones and the information is set up.
I got the “Confession” before it has been translated into Russian (or, maybe, even English), so it took 20 minutes to read the first pages adjusting to the Polish. But then it turned out to be clear. So here’s another advantage of reading this edition – practice other languages and train your brains. I’ve got acquainted with the book the moment my admiration for Nergal sufficiently decreased. And I was curious how my opinion changes after reading the book. And it did again. I’ve acquired respect towards this person for his straightforwardness, sincerity, admission of some facts as the self-evident ones, readiness to be responsible for his actions. He earns on music and close to music activity and it’s not “true”? – come on. Who would refuse to earn a fortune doing smth. one is scary good at and loves with all one’s heart at the same time? Honestly?
