'Shattering The Skies Above', das neue Video der U.S. Metaller TRIVIUM, kannst Du dir unten ansehen. Inspiriert von der 'God Of War'-Videospielreihe, erschien der Song auf der 'God Of War: Blood & Metal' EP, dem Soundtrack zum neuen Game 'God Of War III' (PS3). 'Shattering The Skies Above' ist das Aufnahmedebüt des neuen TRIVIUM-Drummers Nick Augusto, der letztes Jahr Travis Smith hinter der Schießbude ersetzte.
TRIVIUM-Frontmann Matt Heafy erzählt zum neuen Song:
'When we were initially asked to write an original song for the game, we were slightly perplexed since we've never actually written a track for something other than a TRIVIUM record, but we answered the call as we are fans of the game.
Writing the song was a fun experience. We started piecing riffs together on tour and then we really put time into the song when we got home and had the chance to go into the practice space to work on our ideas as a group.
This new song captures a certain energy we've been trying to harness on record as well, as it will show all our fans worldwide where TRIVIUM is heading musically in the future.'
TRIVIUM-Bassist Paolo Gregoletto erzählte dem UK Metal Hammer:
'['Shattering The Skies Above'] has been in the works for a bit, actually. The first main riff I came up with on the SLIPKNOT tour we did in the U.S. in February 2009. I was having trouble coming up with anything that followed it well. Once I heard we had the chance to be a part of the game's EP, I really wanted to give this riff a chance to be in the song. We started collaborating on the riffs, structure, and started jamming it at rehearsals.
Everyone keeps asking what it sounds like, more like 'Shogun' or 'Ascendancy', and the only way I can really describe it is as being very intense and energetic.'
