Trivium’s Matt Heafy Releases “Metality (The Vitality Anthem)” For Team Vitality

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.

Heafy commented:

“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.”

It’s an honor to work with someone who is so passionate about heavy music!

This past week we were invited out to the Trivium hangar in Florida to work on preproduction tracks and we had a blast! We are so excited to unleash this unbelievably heavy, ice cold and glacier crushing record on all of you!”

Heafy added:

“It is my distinguished honor to announce that Frozen Soul has entrusted me to produce their next full length album.

I couldn’t be more excited.

Frozen Soul is a band that I am not only a big fan of, but one that I believe can truly make a massive impact in the heavy music world. Metal fans, extreme metal fans, hardcore fans – everyone agrees that Frozen Soul is something special.

To have a band that already has so much of their signature sound already fleshed out – and presented in such a unique way that’s entirely their own – is inspiring to me.

I can’t wait to – together with Frozen Soul – unleash the new album on the world!”
