TRIVIUM MAKE THE “SLAVE NEW WORLD” LOOK PRETTY DARN APPEALING
You’d think a song called “Slave New World” would probably have some pretty depressing lyrics, and Sepultura’s classic does, by and large, deal with a lot of nasty shit – “You censor what we breathe,” “senseless violence all around,” that kinda Hallmark stuff – but, like a lot of great metal songs, it also features a hopeful note: “We’re not slaves, we’re free.” That’s a confident, cathartic declaration right there.
So I guess it makes sense that Trivium’s video for their cover of the song is pretty much just all about having fun. No need for it to be all doom n’ gloom, right? Trivium aren’t slaves! They’re free!
Of course, it’s also possible that I’m just over-thinking any “meaning” behind the video, and that I should just shut up and enjoy it. I mean, I never over-think shit… right?
