Trivium’s Matt Heafy Releases New Solo Track Featuring Testament’s Chuck Billy

It’s no secret that we’re big supporters of Trivium — their new album In The Court of the Dragon landed at #7 on our list of the best albums of 2021 — and we’re obviously huge Testament fans, with an especially soft spot for frontman Chuck Billy. Now, the former’s frontman, Matthew K. Heafy, has released a new solo track featuring a guest performance by Billy, and it’s pretty fucking solid.

The track, “Behold Our Power,” is promoted as the anthem of the Mystic Festival, a metal fest which takes place at the Gdansk Shipyards in Gdansk, Poland (also called Danzig, Poland — WHOOOOOA). While we’re a little confused as to why Heafy and Billy have written a theme to this festival, given that neither of the musicians appear to be on the line-up for this year’s Mystic Festival, we can excuse this given the power of the track. The song shows both artists pulling off Trivium’s unique merging of gut-punching metalcore and epic chivalry, and makes for an excellent fist-in-the-air song no matter what it’s for. This festival must be pretty stoked to have an official anthem as awesome as this one.

Check out the track below:

This year’s Mystic Festival goes down Thursday, June 2nd, to Saturday, June 4th, with tickets available for purchase. Check out the full line-up below:
