Video: Matt Heafy Performs Trivium’s Ascendancy in Full

0

Well, this sure does make me feel old: this past Sunday, March 15 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the release of Trivium’s Ascendancy, the title of which perfectly describes what the album did for Trivium’s career. To celebrate the occasion, the band’s guitarist and vocalist, Matt Heafy — who, like most of us, is basically stuck at home right now — took to his extremely popular Twitch channel to perform the album in its entirety (he humorously dubbed the performance “the safest show on the planet”). As always, he also took time in-between songs to share various tidbits and knowledge accrued from so many years as a successful metal musician. It’s great stuff.

Scroll to the bottom of this post to watch the video! Trivium will drop a new album, What Dead Men Say, on April 24 on Roadrunner Records. You can check out the first single, “The Catastrophist,” here, and pre-order the album here.
