Guitar shredder Sophie Lloyd has teamed up with TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy for a new song called “Fall Of Man’
The track comes off Lloyd’s upcoming full-length studio album, “Imposter Syndrome“, which is set to arrive later this year via Autumn Records.
“Working with Matthew K. Heafy has been a dream come true!” says Lloyd of the collaboration. “Trivium have been one of my favourite bands since I was a kid, I used to dye my own Trivium t-shirts and wear them everyday.”
“Sophie Lloyd is an immensely talented force of a musician and songwriter,” adds Heafy. “I recall first seeing Sophie’s guitar playing online and being truly blown away – so having been a fan of Sophie’s for several years, I was honored when asked to guest on an upcoming track. When I learned that Trivium had been a long-time favorite band of Sophie’s – I was humbled and appreciative.”
“My co-writer/drummer Christopher Painter and I had a lot of fun experimenting with different time signatures and using some scales that I don’t traditionally use,” Lloyd explains of the song itself. “Also, Matt writing and recording the song on Twitch was really cool as we got real-time feedback from fans on what they want to hear. He really elevated the song into a metal masterpiece and I’m so excited for people to hear it!”
A video for the new tune is expected to drop next week. You can check out the song itself below.
