Matt Heafy (Trivium) Offers Update On Mrityu Side Project With Ihsahn (Emperor)

In the new issue of Revolver, Matt Heafy gave an update on his black metal side project Mrityu, that he has been working on with Ihsahn (Emperor). You can read what he had to say below:


“Mrityu was initially intended to be a black metal band that I was never going to tell anybody I was in. I was going to make the music, and it was going to be pretty true to the ’90s second wave-style-black metal—sort of like Darkthrone, early Dimmu Borgir, early Emperor. But while Mrityu has its roots in black metal, it’s become something so much more.

It’s not just black metal—it’s anything I’ve ever wanted to try. Ihsahn from Emperor will be producing it, and he’s co-written several songs with me. We’ll also be recording it in Notodden, Norway, where all the Emperor records were done. It’s just a matter of when.

Ihsahn is incredibly busy and so is Trivium. But he and I stay in contact and we pass things back and forth. And we have quite a few songs written and quite a few demos. It’s going to be a dream come true when it happens.”
