Trivium’s Matt Heafy Has a Time Machine
Amazing news: it would appear that Trivium’s Matt Heafy, like the members of KISS, has unlocked the secrets of time travel. The guitarist/vocalist accidentally made the admission via his personal blog this week, where he revealed that he “was recently asked to ghost-write a song for a contemporary band.” Since it should be impossible for Heafy to write a song for a band that does not currently exist, and consequently there is no need for him specify that the band is contemporary, fans quickly deduced that Heafy must have access to a time machine.
But like all time travel stories, this tale is a complicated one: since the mystery band decided not to use Heafy’s song, “The Wretchedness Inside,” Heafy has opted to give it to the world for free… and it sounds like it was written for a metalcore band that would have been popular ten years ago. My theory is that Heafy didn’t actually write this for a contemporary band, but, rather, for some long-lost relic of yesteryear — A Dozen Furies, perhaps, or maybe The Autumn Offering? — but all the time travel is messing with his mind, like those dudes in the movie Primer. That’s just my theory, though.
Listen to “The Wretchedness Inside” below, or download it for free here. A Dozen Furies’ new album, A Concept from Fire, comes out September 13, 2005 via Sanctuary. The band will be playing on Ozzfest all summer long. Other bands on the bill include As I Lay Dying, Bury Your Dead, and It Dies Today. Get dates here.
