Trivium’s Matt Heafy Wants To Work With Lady Gaga

Posted by metalrocker on Thursday, October 6, 2011 at 5:09 PM (PST)

Trivium singer/guitarist Matt Heafy says, “I would love to do something with Lady Gaga or Skrillex, things that are just totally different or even Angelo (Badalamenti) — I’m not going to try to pronounce his last name. He’s the guy that scores all of David Lynch’s movies, he makes really intense, just ambient noise textures, I think he would be really cool to collaborate with.”

In an interview with Loudwire, Heafey explains that he feels like no one else is doing anything truly new in metal at the moment. “Metal’s kind of lost right now,” he says. “The bands that are touring in metal, they’ve been around for a while now, there’s no one new coming in and doing something different. That’s why with this record. In Waves, we wanted to do something that was completely reactionary towards what we see in our genre and pushing it beyond the boundaries of what a metal band is suppose to look like, what a metal band is supposed to sound like and push everything to a new creative height where it’s not doing things that we’re supposed to do but doing things that we want to do.”

Trivium is currently on the road opening for Dream Theater in support of their latest album “In Waves,” which was released August 9th via Roadrunner Records.

    i like Trivium but gonna have to laugh at “no one is doing anything new”. I can think a ton of exciting, new records that broke molds this year.
