TRIVIUM's Cover Of TYPE O NEGATIVE's 'I Don't Wanna Be Me' Receives Digital Release

April 26, 2019

TRIVIUM's cover version of TYPE O NEGATIVE's "I Don't Wanna Be Me" has just been released digitally and can be streamed below. The track was initially made available for last year's Black Friday "Record Store Day" on a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl alongside TYPE O NEGATIVE's original version.

TRIVIUM guitarist Corey Beaulieu told the 90.3 WMSC radio show "The Metal Teddy Bear Experience": "We did the TYPE O NEGATIVE cover just for fun, to have a bonus track or just have something useful for whatever, and we just had that kind of hanging out, and then Roadrunner [TRIVIUM and TYPE O NEGATIVE's record label] decided to… It was 15 years since [the original version of] that song came out. So they were just, like, 'Hey, we should do this split thing for the 15-year anniversary of the song.' And we had the song, so they sent it to the TYPE O guys, and they gave the blessing; they liked the cover."

TRIVIUM's latest album, "The Sin And The Sentence", was released in October 2017 via Roadrunner. The LP features the band's first recordings with drummer Alex Bent, who joined TRIVIUM in 2016.
