To celebrate the re-release of Trivium’s debut album Ember To Inferno: Ab Initio Matt Heafy has spoken about his influences at the time of recording and his current influences. The incredible 5 LP vinyl box set and merch is now available to pre-order in the Roadrunner store.
Trivium frontman Matt Heafy has shared his tour diary from their recent European tour with the good dudes at Metal Hammer. Check out Matt’s views on experiencing local cuisine and head over to Metal Hammer to read the full piece. “It’s no secret that the Trivium crew and band are all food-obsessed. Our favourite thing to do on this Earth is to enjoy the local food and drinks of every country and culture we find ourselves in. I can’t count the number of (usually American) bands that I meet who are so closed-minded to trying anything cultural outside of their typical broiled chicken breast at ‘Crapplebee’s’ or less-than-dog-food- quality hamburger-product you find from so many American fast food chains. We, on the other hand, have seen the light; it requires a bit of research, but the results are incredible if you’re willing to open the door of trying what the world has to offer. Ratinger Brauhaus is our usual haunt when in pre-production. We had our full band, crew, and some of our friends from around town join our feast.”
