When musicians stop taking themselves so seriously, that's when I feel the best music happens. My theory was proven correct by Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto.
Trivium isn't hitting the road until next week, so Paolo had some free time recently, and decided to play around and write some silly songs with his friends, Before the Mourning guitarist CJ Cussell and Forty Winters guitarist Jeff Stevenson as well as Trivium drummer Nick Augusto.
The first two lampoon modern-day deathcore:
Meanwhile, the third track, my favorite, takes the piss out of bands like Emmure, Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides and is fantastic:
Seriously, this is gold. This is why the internet rules. You can come up with a really silly idea, record it quickly and send it to the interwebs for bloggers such as myself to giggle over. Thanks for the funnies, Paolo!
Trivium's tour with Volbeat starts next week. Dates here.
