Ryujin Debut “The Rainbow Song” Video Featuring Trivium’s Matt Heafy


Samurai metal band Ryujin (previously known as Gyze) have selected the track “The Rainbow Song” as their latest single. The group have been taken under the wing of Trivium vocalist/guitarist Matthew Kiichi Heafy, who not only appears on this new track, but also produced the group’s forthcoming self-titled album (due out January 12th.)

Vocalist/guitarist, etc. Ryoji Shinomoto commented:

“We are very proud of this song. The song is a fusion of Japanese 90s anime songs and power metal. We all absolutely love it! The video features nature footage of my hometown, Hokkaido, and Ainu tribal costumes, as I am very proud of the beautiful nature we have here. Matt arranged the lyrics, which were originally written about trout, and he also sings the chorus with me! Also, it’s the first song without growls and you can also hear my first high tone shout before my solo!”

Heafy added:

Ryujin is a band who will take over the world. ‘The Rainbow Song‘ is a track that I believe will bridge the gap, taking a whole new slew of fans to become Ryujin-devotees. You’ll find yourself singing along by the first listen.”
