Trivium vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy has shared a 3-track bundle of his cover of ‘My Mother Told Me’, a song that features on the drama TV series, Vikings.
Along with a full studio cover of the song, he’s also released an acoustic version and an a cappella version for fans to enjoy.
This is what Heafy had to say about covering the track.
“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.”
You can stream and listen to the metal version of his cover below.
The acoustic and a cappella versions can both be streamed on streaming service platforms.
