Trivium's Matt Heafy has been taking to Twitch quite a bit recently to do covers of different tracks. Now he's taken Cannibal Corpse's classic "Hammer Smashed Face" and turned it into a slightly bluegrassy folk jam with clean vocals that wouldn't be out of place on a Devin Townsend album. On paper that sounds dumb as hell, but in practice it actually sounds pretty cool! Plus some of the runs are pretty Opeth-ey.
Here are some more of Heafy's recent covers:
