Trivium - In Waves


The Trivium story began back at the dawn of the millennium, when drummer Travis Smith and then frontman Brad Lewter recruited 15-year-old guitar prodigy Matt Heafy for their new band, after seeing him blaze his way through Metallica’s ‘No Leaf Clover’ at a school talent show. After a handful of gigs, Lewter departed, enabling Heafy to take over as the band’s singer, as ... Read more in Amazon's Trivium Store

Product Description

There’s no such thing as a band born to greatness. To succeed in the world of music there’s a whole energy-sapping storm of hard work to plough through. Florida’s Trivium has surely earned the major contender status that has been afforded them by the international media. Trivium’s sophomore release (and Roadrunner debut) Ascendancy (now certified Gold in the U.K.) made them a hit with discerning music fans everywhere, The album garnered a large number of frothing, ultra-positive reviews throughout the music press around the world, including Metal Hammer, Rock Sound and Kerrang , who declared Ascendancy album of the year. Trivium soon graced the covers of a lot of these magazines and picked up a fistful of coveted awards, including ‘Best International Newcomer’ at the 2005 Kerrang! Awards ceremony and several Metal Hammer Golden God statuettes.

Trivium are a young band and deserve a lot of credit for what they've achieved.

Now, I am a big fan of The Crusade but some fans were unsure due to Matt Heafy (singer) singing a lot. With Shogun, the screaming is back as well as singing. When I first listened to the preview of their album up on their MySpace profile, I loved what I heard. Now that I've got my mittens on the album, I've had more time to proper listen to the album. And can I also say as well, I got the special edition CD/DVD package, the behind the scenes of making the album is worth getting for any Trivium fan, it's a must! And for any metal fan, with the added bonus of instructional videos for guitars and bass of each song.

After listening to the album, I just love the fast riffs and solos. They're very fitting within each song. I think the guitars work very well together and are very solid, even when doing a riff, dual riffs and solos. I just love the band's fast riffs and the drummer Travis Smith (drummer) is such an amazing drummer to keep up with it. Another point to make is that Matt Heafy's vocals have improved - in both singing and screaming. In most of the chorus', which happen to be very catchy and it's quite easy to hum along to, Matt's vocals are clean. But TOO many songs on the album have very catchy choruses, which is a little overwhelming I must say. That's the only little problem I have with the album personally. That could be related to the band's influences (Metallica springs to mind). In some songs, like Into The Mouth Of Hell We March and Insurrection, the chorus' are fitting.

My favourite tracks on the album are Torn Between Seylla And Charybdis and Insurrection. For this album, for me, it's better than The Crusade (but as I said, I am a fan of that album!). I love the music and the band perform very well together.

Trivium are a band that have divided the opinions of the metal community since their breakthrough, but even if some people question their style no one can question their talent; Trivium are a true collection of virtuoso musicians who are able to write catchy and enjoyable metal songs.
'Shogun,' the Florida Metal band's fourth studio album is a delight for fans of the band's first two albums 'Ember to Inferno,' and 'Ascendancy,' as it brings a lot of the better elements from those releases back to the forefront, including the screaming Metalcore vocals which divided fan opinion so much.
This choice will take some getting used to for fans who preferred the band's third album 'The Crusade,' but in the end, it is worth being open minded as 'Shogun,' may well be Trivium's best album to date both musically and in all the other areas such as lyrics and production.
In my opinion the best songs on the album are the aggressive 'Like Callisto To A Star In Heaven,' and the slightly dark 'Insurrection,' which borders on extreme metal at times.
The album also should get credit for the career highlight drum performances from Travis Smith, who is frankly amazing behind the kit.
To some fans, the album may appear off-putting on first listen; as the more commercial tracks appear early on in the album and could make the album seem less than heavy on first listen. As with all of Trivium's releases however, the commercial side is balanced with very heavy and technical metal elsewhere.
Whether you are a Trivium fan or a curious outsider you should not be afraid to try Shogun, it contains all the band's various styles distilled on one brutal, thoughtful and fresh album. Highly Recommended.

Trivium are one of those bands that you either love or hate, there is not much middle ground. One reason for this is that many people criticize them for not sounding original. I won't go into the reasons behind this because if you care you will know already, but I myself don't agree with that group of people. I like Trivium and think they are original and by far the best band that the Metalcore scene has to offer.

On this effort Trivium bring back the screaming that was on Ascendancy but have kept the clean vocals as well. The guitar riffing is much heavier than it was on The Crusade and is more similar to the Ascendancy album. The drumming is fast and consistent as always and the bass is good as well. The solos aren't as plentiful as I was expecting even though there are a decent amount and they are very good. The lyrics have never been Trivium's strong point, although they are the best yet from the band. It has to be said that Matt is no Dave Mustaine but what he does write is acceptable.

I have the special edition which has three bonus tracks which are decent and include a cover of Iron Maidens `Iron Maiden' and a behind the scenes documentary, plus the band show you some of the riffs on the album and how to play them which for any guitar players out there is an interesting feature. The special edition with all these extras cost only an extra £1 so it is well worth it, in fact you would be stupid not to get the special edition.

Track ratings out of 10:

1) Kirisute Gomen- 9.2
2) Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis- 8.7
3) Down from the Sky- 8.9
4) Into the Mouth of Hell We March- 9.1
5) Throes of Perdition- 8.7
6) Insurrection- 8.4
7) The Calamity- 8.1
8) He Who Spawned the Furies- 7.
