Me And That Man Announce New Album Featuring Corey Taylor, Matt Heafy And More
The dark-folk project, which began in Songs Of Love And Death with musician John Porter, has expanded from its original form to include a bounty of metal artists including Corey Taylor, Ihsahn, Matt Heafy and Brent Hinds.
“This time round, I wanted to take on a different challenge and curated an album of 11 songs – each with their own character and vibe; alongside the most talented and important individuals across the whole scene,” says Nergal. “Together, we take trips to the lands of blues, folk, country, and even Spaghetti Western. Only time will tell if we hit the mark, but I deeply believe so.
“I’m very proud of this piece of work and it has been a monumental task to achieve. I would like to thank each one of our guests for being part of this project: Mat and Matt, Niklas and Jørgen, Corey, Alan, Addi, Brent, Vegard, Sivert, Anders, Rob, Jerome, Johanna, and Nicke. I love you all from here to the moon and back! Without the passion and heart you granted us, this wouldn’t have been possible.”
