MUSIC NEWS: Trivium’s Matt Heafy Launches IBARAKI Project & Releases Video For New Single ‘Tamashii No Houkai’ Featuring Ihsahn
Trivium‘s Matthew Kiichi Heafy has released the first single from his long-awaited IBARAKI project, Tamashii No Houkai. The track was co-written with Ihsahn.
“Tamashii No Houkai means the breaking of the soul or soul collapse,” explains Kiichi. “It’s a Japanese term that didn’t exist before, but one we forged to reflect the song’s meaning.”
“Tamashii No Houkai is co-written by Ihsahn — the legend behind Emperor and a musician who has been a longtime influence and mentor to so much that I do in music,” he adds. “The writing of this song was the turning point for Ibaraki — it summarised everything from the past, present, and future of what I thought black metal was, is, and could be.”
