IBARAKI - share 'Jigoku Dayū' video!

Trivium singer and guitarist Matthew Kiichi Heafy released RASHŌMON , the long-awaited and much-anticipated album from his IBARAKI project, last year via Nuclear Blast.

"When I first witnessed the original classic Japanese painting of Jigoku Dayū, I was mesmerized; then I read the story,"Heafy explains. "The story is one that still haunts me to this day: a woman captured, enslaved, and forced into a world of servitude. The kimono she forged for herself depicted all the scenes of hell — a metaphor of the prison she now lived in."
