This review is from: Vengeance Falls (Special Edition) (Audio CD)
I am a huge Trivium fan and was really looking forward to this release after the brilliance of In Waves. Whilst its okay and would be considered a great album from anyone else, it just doesn't reach the musical heights of In Waves. Strife and Brave this storm are two of the stronger tracks and sound like they were left over from the In Waves sessions.
There just isn't the same creativity as songs like Black or the power of In Waves, Chaos Reigns etc. It has to be said the production doesn't help either as its a bit muddy and fails to showcase the musical ability of the band. The songwriting on this album is just a bit bland compared with the variation and originality of In Waves
One thing you can't fault with Trivium though is their willingness to try different things. Still a great band and I'll be catching them live where their new songs will no doubt sound better.
