Nergal Releases New Me And That Man Song Featuring Ihsahn
By The River features Emperor’s Ihsahn on vocals, just one of many special guests who feature on the record – Corey Taylor, Matt Heafy and Brent Hinds also make appearances throughout the album.
“When the rumours first emerged of me collaborating with Rob Halford and Ihsahn, the idea sparked imagination,” says Nergal. “I guess people would expect a Nergal and Ihsahn partnership to be extreme, but what came out was a bare bones, blues banger!

“I’ve got to tell you; it wasn’t an easy sell… at first Ihsahn didn’t think there was much he could add – luckily, I knew different and I gave him a simple instruction to have fun. A week later I got the track back and I was totally blown away! Considering the status of the man, he is humble and professional to the core. It was my pleasure to work with him and now it’s our pleasure to present to you, By The River.”
