Matt Heafy is up to his old tricks again. It feels like you can't even look at the internet without seeing that the Trivium frontman has worked his magic on another rock and metal anthem, this time trying his hand at Bullet For My Valentine's Tears Don't Fall.

Of course, unlike his covers of Africa by Toto and Kiss From A Rose by Seal, this one didn't need metalling up. In fact, Heafy has turned it into something resembling a heartfelt acoustic ballad. 

What do you think of the reimagined version?

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.
