Trivium frontman Matt Heafy has shared covers of Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ and NSync’s ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart’ – with a metal spin, obviously. Check out the performances below.
Earlier this month, the musician unveiled unique renditions of Britney Spears’ classic ‘…Baby One More Time‘, Seal’s anthem ‘Kiss From A Rose‘ and ‘Africa‘ by Toto. Now, he’s at it again with a couple more riff-heavy blasts from the past.
On his latest videos uploaded to YouTube, Heafy is seen tearing up his fretboard to ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart’ – the 1997 heartbreak banger by JT and the lads. In a second clip, the singer whistles the melody to the emotional Titanic theme song as he shreds away.
Speaking of the Celine cover, one fan said: “I have no idea how Matt did it, but he actually made me want to hear the whole band cover this”. Another commented: “NSYNC on an 8-string with screaming… won’t find that kind of shit anywhere else”.
Back in April, Trivium toured the UK along with Pittsburgh’s Code Orange and more. They released their eighth studio album, ‘The Sin and the Sentence’, in October last year.
A fan-shot video for the single ‘Beyond Oblivion‘ was unveiled last week.
