TRIVIUM SHARE COVER OF HEAVEN SHALL BURN’S “IMPLORE THE DARKEN SKY” — LISTEN
Grammy-nominated Florida heavyweights TRIVIUM — Matthew K. Heafy(vocals/guitars); Corey Beaulieu (guitars); Paolo Gregoletto (bass); and drummer Alex Bent — are embarking on a sold-out headline tour of Europe along with Heaven Shall Burn. The bands are marking the occasion with a twist and have come up with a clever way to give their fans some “new” music.
Today, Trivium have shared their cover of Heaven Shall Burn’s “Implore the Darken Sky.”
Listen to the song, now available at all DSPs, here.
The cover is featured on a split 7″ that the bands are selling on the road and directly to fans while touring Europe together. Heaven Shall Burn previously released their cover of Trivium’s “Pillar of Serpents,” which appears on the band’s first album From Ember to Inferno. Listen here.
“In the early days of Trivium, back when we were discovering the many great genres and flavors of heavy music, I knew about the classic greats, I knew about extreme metal, but never before had I heard what HSB was doing,” says Heafy. “Heaven Shall Burn’s Whatever It May Take album was my first introduction to their brand of metalcore. This fusion of hardcore ethos and metal sounds blew my mind.”
Heafy finishes, “‘Implore the Darken Sky’ is not only my favorite HSB song, but the one that taught me so much about a sound that needed to be injected into Trivium.”
Trivium’s European tour wraps at the end of the month. The band will announce further 2023 tour plans shortly.
Trivium released their tenth album, In The Court Of The Dragon, via longtime label Roadrunner Records. The record was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur and recorded in the Fall of 2020 at Full Sail University in Orlando. Get In the Court Of The Dragon here. Trivium shared the album’s title track, “In The Court Of The Dragon,” which featured an epic intro composed and orchestrated by Ihsahn (Emperor) and was accompanied by an official short film music videodirected by Ryan Mackfall. Loudwire called out the song as “a skillful blend of dynamics. And blast beats just sound really, really good beneath Matt Heafy’s soothing clean singing” while Revolver labeled it “epic.” Guitar World christened second single “Feast Of Fire” as “pummeling” and “quintessentially Trivium,” as Metal Injection declared it “really, really catchy.” The band also shared the video for “The Phalanx” in partnership with Elder Scrolls. Kerrang! called it “huge.” Heafy discussed the genesis of the track with NME. Read it here.
