Trivium’s Matt Heafy and Happy Metal have put together a new major key version Of “Until The World Goes Cold.” You can check that out below:

Heafy commented:

“I’ve been a fan of Happy Metal for a long time, so it was an absolute pleasure to be able to collaborate with the Bros and make “Until The World Goes Cold” into a Happy version.

It definitely messed with my brain a bit re-learning “World” into a major key. Thank you so much to Happy Metal for all their hard work re-learning and re-structuring this song; tracking, mixing, and mastering, AND making the damn amazing video. All I did was sing a little bit.”

Trivium’s Matt Heafy Posts Acoustic Cover Of Blink-182’s “Dammit”

Trivium’s Matt Heafy is continuing to upload acoustic covers on his YouTube channel, and the latest one features him taking on Blink-182’s “Dammit.” Check that out below:

Heafy commented:

“If you’re familiar with my musical path, you know that before Trivium, I tried out for a pop punk band with the song “Dammit” by Blink 182, and never made it in the band.

Defeated, I was about to give up on music, until I stumbled upon The Black Album by Metallica.

You know the rest.

I’ve always loved Blink, and I wanted to cover “Dammit“, but I knew it had to be different. I thought in my head, “how would In Flames Jester Race/ Whoracle/ Colony -era do “Dammit“? Musically, this is that result.

Vocally, I wanted to stick with that Johnny Cash covers album sorta range, but add in the fun harmonies that I love to do.

The result is something I’m definitely proud of.

The method I’ve been doing the most recent covers is after rehearsing the song countless times; recording the main acoustic tracks first in Logic, doing a rough run through of the main vocals, tracking the backup vocal parts, any overdub guitars or vocals… then I track another acoustic and lead vocal track while shooting the video so that it’s still a live shot.

I use an Apogee Mic, Apogee Duet, Beyer-Dynamic headphones, Adam A3X studio monitors, an LED light, pop shield, drum throne, classical footstool…”
