Trivium's Matt Heafy Received Help From Axl Rose's Vocal Coach

(TeamRock Radio) Trivium's Matt Heafy has recalled how Axl Rose's vocal coach helped him overcome his singing problems. He blew out his voice during a show in Columbus, Ohio, last year and the band were forced to cancel shows as a result. But when he made his live return, fans noticed changes in his performance.

And on Trivium's latest single Silence In The Snow, he can be heard delivering a more melodic sound, a pattern which is followed throughout the album of the same name.

Heafy tells Metal Hammer magazine that he hooked up with signing coach Ron Anderson after a recommendation from Avenged Sevenfold's M Shadows. He says: "Ron's taught Axl Rose, Chris Cornell, Janet Jackson - the list goes on.

"Not only has he helped my clean singing, but he's taught me a correct screaming technique, because what I'd been doing for 15 years was incorrect and I was on the brink of destroying my voice.

"In the past, singing was such a strain and screaming would give me headaches and make my lungs hurt and my throat hurt. But I thought that was the way it was supposed to be." Read more here.
