Trivium frontman Matt Heafy spoke in an intervierw with Metal Hammer Magazine and explained what the word “metal” means to him these days. He said:

It means life. It means so much more than just a genre, and that’s something I’ve always championed; metal is not just a style of music, it’s a lifestyle.

I think that’s really prevalent in the fact that, last year, when it came time for me to make a list of my top records of the year just for fun, it was endless.

There were so many great albums, it was ridiculous. So it’s a sign that it’s alive and well and I think that as long as the community and bands keep supporting each other, we’re gonna have something really good for the future.”
