Trivium’s Matt Heafy Delivers Acoustic Cover of Opeth’s ‘Harvest’

Matt Heafy has been bitten by the acoustic bug lately as the Trivium frontman has tackled a variety of songs in standalone, unplugged performances on his YouTube channel. The latest tune to get the Heafy treatment was Opeth‘s Blackwater Park track, “Harvest.”

The song, already an acoustic-dominated cut, was stripped down even further, leaving the percussion behind as Heafy aggressively strummed away at the more driving moments of the song before dipping into calmer territory on the verse. Like Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt, Heafy is constantly developing his clean singing voice, showing off a dominant sense of control on this whimsical track. This rendition falls one minute short of the original track’s length as he opted to forego the solo section.

Earlier this month, the Trivium mainman has dished out acoustic covers of Radiohead’s “Exit Music (For a Film)” and even Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Keep your eyes peeled from more acoustic offerings from Heafy by subscribing to his YouTube channel here.

Trivium’s latest album, Silence in the Snow, was released in 2015 and was the first to exclusively feature clean singing as they continue to evolve their sound, keen on reinvention. The record ascended to No. 19 on the Billboard 200 charts and was the third consecutive album from the band to land inside the Top 20.
