Everybody knows the classic ballad of Richard Marx "Right Here Waiting". Well, are you ready for a metal version of the song? Trivium's Matt Heafy did an ultra-heavy cover of the song, together with Marx, and you can listen the fine result below!
Heafy stated: "Richard is one of the greatest songwriters of our time and an incredible incredible human being, so it's unreal that we were able to create this metal version of his mega-hit together. Stream the heck outta it!".
Richard Marx tweeted: "The crazy talented @matthewkheafy of Trivium came up with an amazing metal version of my song. We did vocals together and it's out today! Check it out!!"
Heafy said about how the pairing came about, in a recent interview: "I saw his son was wearing a Trivium shirt, so I hit him up on social media. [He's a] super-amazing guy. We stayed in touch. One day, I [wrote to him], 'Hey, let's do a song together.' And then he texted me, 'Let's do it.' So I did a metal version of 'Right Here Waiting'. He did the vocals on it already. It's sick. Will Putney from Fit for an Autopsy is mixing the song."
