Trivium guitarist and vocalist will work with Linkin Park vocalist and producer Mike Shinoda on a new track this Friday, February 8. The collaboration will be streamed on Twitch, and will feature Heafy pulling musician duties with Shinoda producing the effort. The sessions will begin at 1pm EST.
"I got Matt’s blessing to get weird with the track too," said Shinoda. "We’re not gonna just make a metal track. We’re not gonna make a Trivium track. If you wanted a Trivium track you could just get a Trivium track. You could go to Matt’s channel and get that. So I’m gonna take his vocal, and even his guitar, and chop them into little tiny bits and run them through a meat grinder and then we’re gonna make a track out of it. I don’t even know what we’re gonna make."
"The track he sent is so… it’s, like, EPIC! It’s very, like, Matt standing on a mountaintop with a falcon on his wrist who flies away and collects the bones of enemy clans, enemy warriors."
