Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Trivium’s Matt Heafy to collaborate on a new song via Twitch
Brace yourselves, internet: two of metal and Twitch’s biggest names are joining forces for a new online collaboration.
Linkin Park man Mike Shinoda has announced that he’ll be working on a new track with Trivium frontman Matt Heafy, taking on production duties while Matt has seemingly provided the bulk of the song with vocals and guitars.
“I got Matt’s blessing to get weird with the track too,” says Mike in a video announcing the awesome collab. “We’re not gonna just make a metal track. We’re not gonna make a Trivium track. If you wanted a Trivium track you could just get a Trivium track. You could go to Matt’s channel and get that. So I’m gonna take his vocal, and even his guitar, and chop them into little tiny bits and run them through a meat grinder and then we’re gonna make a track out of it. I don’t even know what we’re gonna make.
“The track he sent is so… it’s, like, epic!” he continues. “It’s very, like, Matt standing on a mountaintop with a falcon on his wrist who flies away and collects the bones of enemy clans, enemy warriors.”
Head on over to Mike’s Twitch this Friday, February 8, as the session is kicking off from 10am PT / 1pm ET (which is 6pm UK time). Interestingly, Matt shared the video by writing “song 1” – so does this mean there’s even more to come, too? Oooh…
