Matt Heafy (singer of Grammy-nominated band Trivium) gives his take on the popular K-Pop song Under Cover by the band A.C.E. The dark metalcore version uploaded to Heafy's YouTube channel was recorded and mixed himself. But what is perhaps even more impressive is that Heafy actually did all the instrumental parts and sings in Korean.
Fans have praised the cover choise - which will apparently have a professional mix/master out soon - with one viewer commenting, "As a fan of both kpop and Trivium since 2005 this brings me immense joy. Thank you for working so hard for this, it's amazing how well K-pop translates to metal! Also I think it should be mentioned how respectful and real you've been towards A.C.E during all of this, thank you for that too! I hope you had fun doing this :)."
Another viewer said, "Was so good hearing the final product after seeing how hard you worked on it on Twitch. Congrats Matt."
Matt Heafy has established himself as one of the premier Twitch personalities including performing Trivium songs, covers, and gaming. Trivium released their latest album What The Dead Men Say last year where it debuted at #5 on the ARIA charts. Heafy has always embraced new ways of connecting with fans online and also collaborated with YouTube star Jared Dines on an EP which was released 6 months ago.
