Trivium Frontman: 'Nu Metal's Making a Comeback, It's Weird'
Discussing the impact of the nu metal genre, Trivium frontman Matt Heafy noted that the style is making a comeback these days, resulting in frequent use of nu metal riffs among modern metal acts.

Chatting with Honda inside the company's latest Civic car, Matt was asked on whether nu metal proved as a good or a bad thing for metal. "What's really weird is that nu metal's making a comeback right now. You can see a lot of hardcore bands and deathcore bands all playing nu metal riffs," he replied.

"And now there are DJs making their ways back into hardcore bands and metal bands, it's strange," the frontman continued. "You'll start to notice it more and more at festivals that there's a lot more bands that are making comebacks from the '90s. So nu metal's making its way back. It's not making it's way into our sound by any means, but it's making its way back."

The interview revolved around Matt being played a certain tune to get the ball rolling towards a certain topic. Check out the clip below to see Heafy discussing his early pop punk days, giving support to his "fellow yellows" and more.
