Inspired by the God Of War series, Trivium's "Shattering the Skies Above" appears on the upcoming soundtrack to God Of War III – God Of War: Blood & Metal. The track features the band’s signature aggression and intricate guitar work as well as featuring the debut of new drummer Nick Augusto’s blistering beats.
Trivium’s singer, Matt Heafy, notes: “When we were initially asked to write an original song for the game, we were slightly perplexed since we’ve never actually written a track for something other than a Trivium record, but we answered the call as we are fans of the game. Writing the song was a fun experience. We started piecing riffs together on tour and then we really put time into the song when we got home and had the chance to go into the practice space to work on our ideas as a group. This new song captures a certain energy we've been trying to harness on record as well, as it will show all our fans worldwide where Trivium is heading musically in the future.”
The EP will be available at all digital retailers on March 2nd and features 6 brand new songs from metal titans Killswitch Engage, Dream Theater and Opeth as well as newcomers Taking Dawn and Mutiny Within.right here.
