IBARAKI (ft. Triviums Paolo Gregoletto) – `Kagutsuchi` Video zur Albumveröffentlichung

TRIVIUM Matthew Kiichi Heafy veröffentlicht sein Video zum IBARAKI Track `Kagutsuchi` vom soeben erschienenen Debütalbum “Rashomon“. Unterstützung erhielt er bei dem Song von seinem Trivium Bandmate Paolo Gregoletto, der ein hörenswertes Basssolo beisteuerrt.

Kiichi erklärt zum Song:

„‚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. 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. 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.“

Lyrics:

We watched the world – it burned away

And from the ash, we found release

We brought your kind down to it’s knees

No longer bound, now finally free

 

Have you beheld the grace of your lord?

Withstand this hell: the you endured

I am the traitor, behold my „disease“

Not held down by your belief in deceit

You are a slave but bound to a word

The root of all pain we know in this world

Open your eyes now and proclaim defeat

Don’t waste further life, renounce and repeat

 

Renounce and repeat

 

Isolation from the manipulation

Of the followers

Followers of the greatest illusion

 

Isolation from the manipulation

Of the followers

Congregation of noughts

 

Tyrant burn

On the stake from which he turned

To the undead Tyrant burn On the stake from which he turned But a dead man

 

Your fields are burning, your villages sacked

Halls of the holy – no longer in tact

Somehow despite what has come to be

You still cling on – to what you can’t see

 

You’re not a victim, not ruling with love

You rule with fear; a tyrant thereof

Hypocrite – fester, your righteousness rots

You mask your will by what a „god“ wants

 

What a „god“ wants

 

Isolation from the manipulation

Of the followers

Followers of the greatest illusion

 

Isolation from the manipulation

Of the followers

Congregation of noughts

 

Tyrant burn

On the stake from which he turned

To the undead

 

Tyrant burn

On the stake from which he turned

But a dead man

 

Take all you’ve done to me

Open your eyes and see

Soon we’ll become the last ones

Waiting for night to come

 

Take all you’ve done to me

Open your eyes and see

Soon we’ll become the last ones

Waiting for none above

 

I feel it changing

Cut out my heart with a knife

I feel it hating

Pull me closer

Holding me back from the world

 

I feel it changing

Cut out my heart with a knife

I feel it hating

Pull me closer

Holding me back from the world

 

I feel it changing

Cut out my heart with a knife

I feel it hating

Pull me closer

Holding me back from the world

 

We watched the world – it burned away

And from the ash, we found release

We brought your kind down to it’s knees

Have you now seen what I have seen?

 

We watched the world – it burned away

And from the ash, we found release

We brought your kind down to it’s knees

No longer bound, now finally fre
