Trivium's fifth album In Waves is their first album with new drummer Nick Augusto, and their first to be produced by Colin Richardson. Nick's style of drumming fits the band well so there is no need to worry about Travis's absence. Additionally, the general standard of production is brilliant and even the quality of the lyrics has improved.

At first, I was a little worried that the album mightn't be all that good, as I wasn't too keen on the pre-released tracks like the more radio friendly `In Waves,' and `Built To Fall,' or the heavier, more mid-album type tracks `Dusk Dismantled,' and `Inception Of The End,' all of which were objectively good songs but all seemed to be missing something.

That many tracks should be indicative of the album's quality as a whole, so I didn't get my hopes up. They did all grow on me however, and definitely make even more sense within the context of the album as a whole, so if you weren't keen on those tracks either, don't let it put you off listening to the whole album.

As a general rule, the songs are shorter than they were on the previous album Shogun, and a little more straight-forward in terms of composition and structure but this is not necessarily true of every single track. The best way to describe In Waves would be a mixture of radio friendly songs and Ascendancy type songs; when you get right down to it, its another regular Trivium album. No grand departure really.

Every Trivium album so far has had some alteration to the style of the vocals, some harder, some softer and some mixed. In Waves could be described as more mixed, but with some additional styles not heard on a Trivium album before too.

Bought for son who's into LPs (amazing how things come around again!). Great to feel an old fashioned LP and it brought back fond memories. Great album cover and arrived quite quickly. I have only given 3 stars due to the ridiculous cost of £27 for what is essentially a flat piece of plastic and card! The CD is a third of the cost and I cannot see how they can justify £27.

First reviewer pretty much said it all...but despite some great metal so far this year not a lot of it has had that 'kick your face off' quality that In Waves totally does, so I had to do a quick review...no track-by-track here

As a day 1 Trivium fan I was biased from the start, so this album not moving too far in any direction from the Trivium template had me hooked instantly...if the heavily plugged title track is not your thing...don't worry there are at least another 6 tracks you will love.

Fast, energetic, tuneful...aggressive when it has to be with lots to enjoy and headbang along with up front but plenty more to like on repeat and repeat and repeat listens.

If you like anything Trivium ever did you should get this, it is arguably their best yet! Two other points...I have never cared what lineup a band has you shouldn't either...and as Ltd editions go this is really good with a great DVD, although I would say not worth if you have to pay a whole lot more.

When they get it right they really do make you want to bang your head `Dusk Dismantled' and `Caustic are the Ties that Bind' are really quite exceptional, what is quite frustrating however is that they don't do it consistently enough to come close to their second album `Ascendancy' which should be your first purchase. Don't get me wrong I still think that Trivium have the potential to make a really good album, I just think they need to go into it with a bit more fire.

The package is brilliant with its five bonus songs a live in the studio performance, which actually helps to make a couple of the tracks on the album a bit more enjoyable (I don't know why it just does) and a mini making of documentary which tries to be a bit arty and apart from a few nice shots doesn't really make it

It was the song `in waves' that made me want to pick up another Trivium album to be honest I had lost interest in them. Unfortunatly if it wasn't for the DVD with the live in the studio I might have only given it three stars. Trivium; be more consistant.

It was asking of a miracle for this album to equal or better the epic 'Shogun' and it has not. A more hardcore album which took several listenings to get into. Change of producer was a step backwards, as the overall sound is a little less refined, especially listening through earphones. It's still a good album, and well worth buying.

Im not going to bore people with song descriptions etc. Im just going to tell you that in my view this is by far Triviums best work.

Ok, Ascendancy had 'the hits' on it, y'know, the ones that made everyone go "wow, that Trivium band are awesome" but In Waves, as an album is far more mature, concise and complete.

Great return from the band, Buy buy buy!

I'll start by saying that I'm a huge Trivium fan and have waited eagerly for this album since it was announced last year. However, I have to say that the album is something of a disappointment. Firstly, the "5" bonus tracks included on the Deluxe edition are actually only 2. One is a lackluster 1 minute interlude which in my opinion doesn't constitute as a track. And two are "Shattering the Skies Above" and "Slave New World", both of which have been available to purchase through various sites and CDs for over a year. The other two tracks are nothing to get particularly excited about - that was my first disappointment.
My second came when I realised that having listened to the album once through, upon second listen I couldn't remember anything I had just listened to. The songs are instantly forgettable (with the exception of "Of All These Yesterdays" and "Inception of the End") and blend into a giant hardcore mess. The album is clearly attempting to recreate the aggression of Ascendancy when really they should be trying to progress away from an album that was released over half a decade ago.
All that said, there are some merits to this album. Matt Heafy has never sung better, the impressive guitar solos still remain and the drums are thrashier than they have been on previous albums due to the new drummer. The DVD provides a classic Trivium documentary where they all voice opinions and give you an insider look into how they do things (which I always enjoy but admittedly is nothing new).
My advice? If you are Trivium fan, buy this album because it is undoubtedly still Trivum and there are some good tracks on there. If you are a first time listener to Trivium, don't buy this album - go for Ascendancy or Shogun instead, both are better, catchier and more unique.
