The dust has settled on 'The Crusade' now, with over six months passed since its release. Having taken a quick look at the overall rating for this CD, however, I have to say I was quite stunned at it being almost 5 stars. So, here's my two cents on Trivium's 3rd album, take it or leave it.

What started off as a band with great technical chops and confidence quickly spiralled to stratospheric proportions just 2 years ago as 'Ascendancy' caught the metal world's attention back in 2005. Less than 18 months after its release and despite massive amounts of touring, Trivium found time to write and record 'The Crusade'. The hubbub was there, the adverts were in place at your local HMV, and it seemed like this was an album all metalheads needed to know about, and acquire, of course. And thanks to Roadrunner being so efficient on the marketing front, it sold like hotcakes. But that doesnt disguise the fact that this is, in fact, Trivium's least consistent album yet.

'The Crusade' does a few things right, for sure. The guitar work seems far more varied than previous works, and with Matt Heafy ditching the screaming vocals almost altogether his strong James Hetfieldian vocals come to the fore, giving the band a more traditional edge. In the HEAVY deparment, 'To The Rats' thrashes about with all the pace and poise of a classic Testament number; 'Entrance of the Conflagration' serves as their best homage to traditional metal and 'Unrepentant' shows some furious welding of a honed melodic edge with tight but restrained riffing.

But on the other side of this album, the band seemed to have branched off and tried to write songs with a bit more variety to them, which is certainly commendable considering 'Ascendancy' and its fast-speed-fits-all mentality.

The Crusade is a kickass album that goes off to a kickass start with Ignition and Detonation. Musically, the songs are completely different, but lyrically Detonation is part 2 of Ignition.

In fact, The Crusade is a lyrical masterpiece from start to finish. With several songs being dedicated to events that have happened, such as Entrance of the Conflagration: a song about a woman that drowned her children in the bath. Unrepentant: a song that tells the story of a man that killed his daughters for fear of them following in their older daughter's path. And Sadness Will Sear: a song about a gay teenager that was killed for the way he was.

The Crusade covers many styles of music, ranging from the Motley Crue style Anthem (We Are The Fire), to the Def Leppardy The Rising, back to the Slayerish intro to Detonation. Although the songs have hints of other styles to them, there is a definite Trivium sound to all of them.

This album features the song The Crusade, and when Trivium said this song was epic, they meant it! This extremely technical 8 minute long intstrumental did more than keep me interested all the way through.

Musically, every single song is amazing. Matt Heafy's voice sounds amazing, along with his and Corey Beaulieu's guitar riffs and solos, Paolo's bass lines and solos, and Travis's drumming make The Crusade album of the year, and it is a must-have.

the crusade, where do i start?

I'll start with the new vocal style, it is so amazing. All "true" metal fans shall think that after Ascendancy, trivium couldnt get any better, well they are totally wrong. Trivium has proved everyone wrong, and made one of the most amazing albums ever. infact, i would definitely say it is the best metal album of the last 10 years. The vocals arent screaming as they were on the previous two albums, but now Matt is singing the lyrics. His singing is so amazing, it has been compared very similair to hetfield, thats how good it is!! The lyrics are really strong aswell, take this line from detonation(track 2) for example: "Fire rains down on the American dream

Watch all you love seethe and scream"

The power behind these lyrics reinforce Triviums very rapid rising to becoming THE metal gods of their generation.

Next i'll tell you about the sound on this album, With the killer solos and the pounding old school metal riffs, this album is one to definitely give a listen. I swear anyone who appreciates rock will love this album, especially with the more stripped back organic guitar playing. With amazing solos to air-guitar to and heavy riffs to pump your fist to, The crusade has it all.

Even the drums on this album are totally killer, Travis has proved himself as one of the greatest drummers on the msuic scene at the moment (Golden God won for Best Drummer, 2006)

So to finish with, I TOTALLY reccomend you to buy possibly the best meal album to be made in your lifetime, standing strong net to the likes of Master of puppets, The Crusade!!!!

If you are reading this amongst the huge number of mixed reviews posted on this album, you will probably be struggling to decide which opinion to go with.

To truly assess this album requires a bit of objectivity which is clearly lacking in alot of the devoted fan type-reviews. You will also see various genre labels banded around as people seem preoccupied with pidgeon-holing the band into a particular style and following.

Forget all that! This is heavy metal in its broadest sense, pretty much in the same vein as 80s Metallica, Megadeth and Testament with a contemporary re-working which does stop it from being a mere rip-off of what us more seasoned metallers have heard before.

In my book, there is nothing wrong in referencing your influences and Trivium are quite open in their adoration of bands like Metallica and more contemporary artists such as guitarist John Petrucci from the fantastic Dream Theater. In fact, it is precisely this mix of influences from bands at different ends of the metal spectrum that produces such an intoxicating fusion of thrash,heavy metal and progressive elements.

This is great stuff - great production, great solos, great arrangement and in terms of the previous album, Ascendancy, a natural progression for a band which still has a lot of years ahead to progress and forge their own sound - Heafy has only just turned 21 after all!

My particular favourites are the album opener, Ignition, Detonation and the title track. Having said that, it's actually difficult to think of a weak track.

Forget your preconceptions and the hang ups regarding the homage to Metallica - this is a hugely enjoyable album for all those who appreciate the basic essence of rock and heavy metal.
