ME AND THAT MAN releases single and video “By The River” with Ihsahn
Behemoth singer Nergal’s darkened blues project ME AND THAT MAN has just released yet another single fresh off its upcoming album, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol.1. “By The River” takes you on a drive with the Devil himself, straight through the aberrations of the graveyard and back. Creating a uniquely captivating atmospheric concept, the desert-tinted soundscapes weave throughout the song. Ihsahn of the legendary Emperor lends his entrancing vocals to this single and will bewitch the listener. Slow hypnotizing riffs round off the track, while a masterfully escalating guitar solo closes “By The River” on a high note.
Bridging the gap to the vintage atmospheres of the previously released videos, “By The River” is the next ritual of initiation, straight into the distinctive aesthetics and stories ME AND THAT MAN tells on the upcoming album. The peculiarly alienated spaces and desert landscapes framed by an enchanting soundtrack unfold gradually in front of the viewer, taking form in a captivating odyssey through Southern landscapes, cities, villages and empty crossroads. There, maybe even a personal encounter with the Devil himself is possible!

Nergal on “By The River”:
“When the rumours first emerged of me collaborating with Rob Halford and Ihsahn, the idea sparked imaginations. 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, ‘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”!”
