I just can’t wait to hear this. It’s going to have to be better than Trivium, right? Anything’s gotta be better.
MetalInsider went to go see Trivium frontman Matt Heafy perform an acoustic set in New York the other night. I was going to go, but realized I’d rather get extra sleep.
Anyways, during his performance, Heafy revealed that he has been working on an extreme metal project — tentatively called Mrityu. I have no idea how that is pronounced.
“Though it started off as a ‘90s black metal inspired group, he explained that his friendship with Ishahn actually inspired him to broaden the project’s sound,” MetalInsider reports.
Wait. Ihsahn’s friends with Matt Heafy? Many demerits, Ihsahn. Many demerits.
“He expects to release music next year with Nick Augusto of Trivium playing drums, though no touring is expected,” the site reports.
So, that’s happening.
Black metal is officially not cool anymore.
