Here's Matt Heafy covering Africa by Toto

Matt Heafy playing guitar on Twitch

Matt Heafy loves Twitch. He's always on it, covering this and that, showing off his frankly ludicrous guitar collection and wearing rad band shirts. Basically, if you like Twitch and heavy metal, you need to give the Trivium frontman a follow.

Known as kiichichaosreigns (opens in new tab) on Twitch, Matt held an event under the name Kiichichaos Karaoke in which fans could donate and request songs for Matt to cover on his channel.

User makib0y had the highest bid, whose choice just happened to be the internet's favourite Africa by Toto. 

So here's Matt giving it all he's got on a swanky-ass guitar!

In May, Weezer also covered Africa after a fan campaign.

Luke Morton joined Metal Hammer as Online Editor in 2014, having previously worked as News Editor at popular (but now sadly defunct) alternative lifestyle magazine, Front. As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
