Trivium Frontman Matt Heafy Performs Acoustic Cover of Opeth’s ‘Harvest’ in New Video
Trivium frontman Matt Heafy has been covering the Opeth song ‘Harvest’ at some recent solo acoustic shows, including one in New York that Loudwire reviewed. Now, a video of Heafy performing the song in a studio has been released. (watch below)
In discussing the songs he picked to do at the acoustic shows, Heafy said, “It was just things I felt like doing, artists that I love, like Depeche Mode and Opeth so I figured I might as well. I love Opeth. I guess for the Trivium fans if they were coming, they would be like ‘What the hell are these song choices?’ but it’s just stuff that I love.”
The video for ‘Harvest’ was shot in the house/studio where Trivium are in the midst of recording their sixth album. It was recently revealed that David Draiman of Disturbed is producing the album. The band has been posting several photos of the sessions on their Facebook page, and announced last week that pre-production was finished and Heafy had begun recording scratch tracks.
It will be interesting to see if any other videos of cover songs Heafy did during those acoustic shows will be released. Some of the songs he has performed include Depeche Mode’s ‘The Sweetest Perfection,’ Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love,’ Nine Inch Nails’s ‘Hurt’ and Roy Orbison’s ‘In Dreams.’
