Matt Heafy of Trivium signed a solo deal with Road Runner back in July with the release of his “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher” cover. Now the frontman has released a 3-track bundle featuring a cover of the popular History Channel series, Vikings. The first track is more metal oriented, the second is an acoustic rendition and the final version is done a cappella. Heafy commented on why he covered the song:
“Vikings is one of the greatest series out there. 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.”
01) My Mother Told Me
02) My Mother Told Me (Acoustic)
03) My Mother Told Me (A Cappella)
