Trivium frontman Matthew Kiichi Heafy, has shared a new solo track in the form of – “My Mother Told Me”. The track is a cover of a song that appeared on the show Vikings.
Heafy offers up three dramatic iterations of the track — one in the heavy metal style that is his signature, along with an acoustic rendition, and an a cappella version.
“Vikings is one of the greatest series out there,” Heafy shares about the reason he selected this track.
“Everything about it truly takes the viewer on a journey to a time we so often dream about. I consider Vikings a very ‘metal’ show with its thematics being something many heavy bands want to write about.”
“When I first heard King Harald singing ‘My Mother,’ I immediately looked for a recorded version. I only found a transformed version, but I wanted the folk version. I decided to create ‘My Mother’ in three interpretations. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
