Trivium frontman Matt Heafy was interviewed by PETA some time ago (you can tell it's old footage because the graphics and music in the video are all related to the group's 2008 album Shogun, plus his hair's a lot shorter now), but the video has just made it online. In the clip above, he talks about his own pets, as well as offering opinions on fur, the mistreatment of animals in factory farms, and more. WARNING: This clip contains graphic footage of animal abuse, so if that disturbs you, you may not want to watch.
