Trivium Feared For The Future During Vocal Crisis


(TeamRock Radio) Trivium have admitted they feared for the band's future when frontman Matt Heafy was forced to steer clear of screaming. The singer suffered vocal cord damage during a 2014 gig in Columbus, Ohio, and Trivium cancelled a number of shows as a result. Their latest album, 2015's Silence In The Snow, featured no Heafy screaming vocals.

Bass player Paolo Gregoletto tells Artisan News (via Blabbermouth): "Matt's voice was toast. He had to re-learn a lot of techniques. In my mind, I'm, like, 'This could change our band forever, if he can't do that stuff.' And there was a technique Matt learned, but it was gonna take time, and there was no guarantee that he was gonna get it.

"And now, within the last three or four months, it finally clicked, and Matt is able to do pretty much 99% of the stuff he was doing before. That presents us with the opportunity of going forward with the record. Now we don't have to worry as much about it." Read more here.
