TRIVIUM's HEAFY Reveals Details Of 'Roadrunner All-Stars' CD

TRIVIUM's Matt Heafy has revealed more details about his contributions to the upcoming "Roadrunner All-Stars" record to mark Roadrunner Records' 25th anniversary. The full-length release will contain original musical collaborations between past and present Roadrunner artists. Approximately 50 musicians are expected to participate in this record, making it a most elaborate collaboration project.

Four central musicians — including Heafy — have been chosen to produce and write all the songs. Previously announced were Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT), Dino Cazares (ex-FEAR FACTORY/BRUJERIA) and Robert Flynn (MACHINE HEAD). These four musicians will not only play on the songs they have written but also assemble a unique team of Roadrunner artists to appear on each track.

The artists that are expected to contribute to the tracks produced and written by Heafy are as follows:

* A track described by Heafy as a "southern rock-ish stoner metal song":

Mike D'Antonio (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) - Bass
Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE) - Drums
Josh Rand (STONE SOUR) - Guitar
Matt Heafy - Guitar

* A track described by Heafy as a "punk song":

Jerry Only (MISFITS) - Bass/Vocals
Dave Chavarri (ILL NINO) - Drums
Matt Heafy - Guitar

* A track described by Heafy as a "black metal song":

Mike Smith (SUFFOCATION) - Drums
Sean Malone (CYNIC) - Bass
Josh Silver (TYPE O NEGATIVE) - Keyboards
Justin Hagberg (3 INCHES OF BLOOD) - Guitar
Dani Filth (CRADLE OF FILTH) - Vocals
Matt Heafy - Guitar

* A track described by Heafy as a "metal song":

King Diamond - Vocals
Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu (TRIVIUM) - Guitars
Mike D'Antonio (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) - Bass
Dave Chavarri (ILL NINO) - Drums

The project is being overseen by longtime Roadrunner A&R man Monte Conner. Mixing duties will be handled by legendary hard rock producer Colin Richardson. The album is tentatively scheduled for release in the fall of 2005.
