Trivium: 'Technology's Allowing Mediocre Musicians to Sound Good'
Frontman Matt Heafy and guitarist Corey Beaulieu of Trivium recently discussed the music over-saturation happening in the metal realm, saying that technology allows mediocre players to sound way better than they really are.

Agreeing with the interviewer Andrew Haug's comment that "there used to be a million fans to one band and now it's almost a million bands to one fan," Corey noted:

"Nowadays people can just record at their house and put it online and there's just so much stuff out there ... Anyone can program drums and record with their laptop and put out something and not even be that good and autotune.

"You see a lot of bands that have to have vocals on backing tracks because they can't actually perform what they recorded. Because technology's given people a crutch to sound good when they're actually mediocre," Corey concluded.

During the rest of the chat, the band talked about streaming services, underlining once again that streaming is the future of the music industry. Check out the full interview below.
