Ibaraki, le projet Blackened Metalcore de Matt K. Heafy (Trivium) vient de sortir son premier album, Rashomon via Nuclear Blast. Il disponible au format CD, LP, K7 et digital.
Pour marquer cette sortie un nouveau morceau et clip a été dévoilé, il s'agit du titre "Kagutsuchi", un morceau important pour Kiichi : "'Kagutsuchi' is the turning point in my relationship to black metal, Before crafting this piece, I believed I needed to stick to all the tropes of tradition — I didn't believe that I was able to attach my name to keep something legitimately black metal." Il continue "Befriending Ihsahn and having him as a mentor showed me that being true to oneself is far more important than being true to a genre. Ihsahn freed my mind and encouraged the sharpening of the tools needed to begin Ibaraki properly." Kiichi fini, "The very recorded guitar tracks in this final album are actually from 2010/2011. This album is an auditory time-capsule of my journey in creating Ibaraki. 'Kagutsuchi' was the first song I wrote after I had begun my tutelage under Ihsahn."
