Watch TRIVIUM’s Matt Heafy Write A Song With Toontrack!

It’s that time of year again, and the fine folks at Toontrack are gearing up for November, AKA, METAL MONTH. To kick things off, Gear Gods’ very own Trey Xavier flew down to Florida and met up with Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy where the vocal wizard himself added his signature singing and screaming to a track that was written and recorded using exclusively EZdrummer 2 and EZmix 2. Watch and be amazed!

As you can tell, every step of the process was documented and it’s pretty eye-opening to see just how Heafy is able to come up with melodies and lyrics on the fly. It’s no small feat to pump out a banger like this, but the dude makes it look so easy and understandable. He does spend a lot of time streaming songwriting on Twitch, so that might have something to do with it as well.

Be sure to keep up with Toontrack’s Metal Month throughout all of November, because there are goodies dropping each week and a whole lot of special things in store! Stay tuned.
