Trivium: returning next month

Trivium‘s Matt Heafy knows his shit. Because of this, and because we’re exciting about Vengeance Falls landing very soon, we asked him to give us his thoughts on the state of metal in 2013. As ever, his answer was an interesting one.

Watch it for yourself below…

Vengeance Falls is out October 14 via Roadrunner and, we’re presuming, packed with bangers. The album was produced by none other than Disturbed mainman, David Draiman.

ARTISTdirect.com editor-in-chief Rick Florino recently conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and SCAR THE MARTYR drummer Joey Jordison. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

ARTISTdirect.com: The album becomes an epic journey from start to finish. You’ve got to listen to it from beginning to end because there’s so much going on, and it’s all connected in a fluid way.

Jordison: You know, it’s really cool that you noticed that. When I was writing all of that shit, I’d complete a track and be like, “Alright, what am I feeling? What would be cool after this track? What emotion am I going into right now? What am I hearing in my heard right now? Where should I go?” It wasn’t like I was writing a song and saying, “Oh, we’ll just try to fit it in somewhere”. It was like I’d right one song and think, “What am I feeling next?” Sometimes, it would take a while, and I’d have to listen to a song over and over. However, every song was an emotional result of a previous song. I completed this song and now where am I going? It’s cool that you picked up on it because that’s exactly what it is.

ARTISTdirect.com: What’s your favorite memory of [late SLIPKNOT bassist] Paul Gray from “Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses”? He’s all over that record…

Jordison: Oh yeah, he is. Man, what is not a good memory of Paul? You know? They’re all great. His room was directly underneath mine. I remember one night we were sitting up late and listening to rough tracks of the record. I remember Paul looking around the room and saying, “This is the best work we’ve ever done!” I was like, “You know what? It is!” He was like, “This is the best we’ve done to date, man”. I said, “Absolutely.” We were sitting in his room playing guitar until late at night. It was one of those nights where we just connected about music and were reflecting on all the songs. If you see those pictures that Shawn [Crahan, SLIPKNOT percussionist] took on the inside of the record sleeve, one of those was the doorway to Paul‘s room. That’s where we hung a lot and connected on music and tracks we were doing at the time. It was a special time when we made that record in the Houdini Mansion.

ARTISTdirect.com: Where are you in terms of writing for SLIPKNOT?

Jordison: Whenever I pick up a guitar and I’m not doing anything, I’m always writing riffs. That’s all we’re doing. We’ve all got a shitload of riffs. We’re always writing. Even though we haven’t gotten together, there’s plenty of material there. We talk to each other all the time on our cell phones and all of that when we’re on tour in different spots of the world. We’re all working. It hasn’t found its time yet. We’re continuing to write though. We’re always writing. We’re going to have so much shit, it might have to be a double record. [laughs]

Tarja and Sharon: New BBFs

Symphonic metal fans around the world are set to lose their shit as it’s been revealed that the new Within Temptation single will feature none other than former Nightwish singer, Tarja Turunen!

Paradise (What About Us?) will land later this month and will be the first new Within Temptation track to be released from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled new album, due out early next year.

“When we had written the first version of Paradise and listened back to the demo we’d recorded and the epic power of the song, we thought of Tarja instantly,” says WT’s Sharon Den Adel. “How well this track would fit her classical voice and how extra special it would be if we sang it together. The more we thought about this wild idea, the more excited we got about it!

“Of course I didn’t know what to expect from Tarja, as we’d never actually met in person ’till June this year. Our first encounter was via a Skype call we’d set-up to discuss the collaboration and we immediately clicked, not only creatively but personally. After we’d spoken, it felt completely natural that we would do this together!”

Within Temptation: Back in the studio, soon back on the road

“It was very nice to finally meet Sharon and the Within Temptation guys,” adds Tarja. “I truly appreciate the invitation and the opportunity to work with them on their song ‘Paradise’. So wonderful that they thought of me! I hope our fans will like this ‘girl power’ duet!”

Within Temptation will return to the UK in early 2014 for a string of dates that includes a stop at Wembley Arena! You can catch Sharon and the boys at the following venues:

JANUARY 2014
FRIDAY            24                    O2 ACADEMY BIRMINGHAM
SATURDAY     25                    WEMBLEY ARENA
MONDAY         27                    O2 APOLLO MANCHESTER
TUESDAY        28                    O2 ACADEMY GLASGOW
WEDNESDAY  29                   O2 ACADEMY NEWCASTLE
