Kiichi Chaos, aka Trivium’s Matt Heafy, has released a new song titled “Metality (The Vitality Anthem).” The track was recorded for the esports organization Team Vitality.
“Metal and gaming are two constants in my life that I hold near and dear. I’ve always found that gaming and metal go so well together… it’s as if they BELONG together.
Vitality is an org I have been a longtime fan of — I love their players and I feel they are some of the best on the planet. I love that they have their Metality brand built inside the org as well! When I was approached to create the theme song for their CS:GO team, I knew instantly what it needed to sound like.
It was such a blast to create the piece in which I heard in my head when I think of Vitality and Metality. Thank you so much to Vitality for allowing me to do this — the partnership between Vitality x Nuclear Blast x Kiichi Chaos is going to show the world how far ahead of the game Vitality is. I look forward to what the future holds for Vitality!”
Nuclear Blast Head of Marketing Tiffany Cantegrel added:
“I am thrilled about this collaboration with both Matt Heafy and Vitality. Creating more synergies between metal and gaming has been on Nuclear Blast’s radar for a while, and we are proud to make a striking entrance into the esport space with those two heavyweights. It’s a project built from scratch in just one month thanks to the passion of all partners involved. Expect other exciting initiatives to follow!
As a metal fan, I am amazed this killer track will be the Vitality CS:GO anthem, and proud to release it on Nuclear Blast. Special kudos to Matt; his combination of talent, enthusiasm and kindness is unparalleled.”
