Fan-filmed footage of TRIVIUM performing a cover version of METALLICA‘s classic track “The Four Horsemen” on February 10 at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, Colorado can be seen below. TRIVIUM played the song as a three-piece, with vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy watching his bandmates — Corey Beaulieu (guitar), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Nick Augusto (drums) — from the side of the stage (Corey handled lead vocals in the track).
In a 2010 interview, Heafy was asked who inspired him the most when he was first starting out as a musician. “If it weren’t for James Hetfield [METALLICA], I literally wouldn’t be here,” he said. “I mean, I know that there are a lot of other musicians, in that band as well, especially from the ‘Black Album’ era, but it was Hetfield who really brought me into metal. To see their live shows and see what a commanding presence he was, and to see how good of a guitar player he is. So, he got me into everything, then I bridged out from there.”
TRIVIUM has joined forces with Swedish metallers IN FLAMES for a co-headining North American tour in January/February. Support on the trek is coming from VEIL OF MAYA and KYNG. Source: Blabbermouth.net
