This is the first CD single I have ever bought, I usually just plump for albums as I am not too bothered about the bous tracks that come with singles, but two exclusive Trivium songs that aren't featured on the new album was an opportunity I could not pass!
The Anthem is a stunning track with very technical guitar work and clever use of vocal range. It is stunning and guarenteed to please any fan of metal, the band have drawn upon their Iron Maiden influences to write this masterpiece.
Vengeance is a very thrashy song that reminds me of the works of Black Sabbath, but still having the very cutting Trivium soung. Don' let the B-Side tag fool you, this song is not of grade B quality.
This can also be said for Broken One, this is an epic sounding track with very emotive vocal work and great technical guitar work. The style is fitting with the new album, 'The Crusade' but at the same time in parts you can hear the old Trivium coming through.
All in all, I would recomend this CD to anyone who is into Metal music. Fans of Trivium, this is an essential item to add to your collection. Great value.
