It has been ten years since Trivium fans turned into an army of cry babies with the release of their hugely successful album, The Crusade. An album that boasted a new sound and one that attracted a lot of negative attention.

Let's face it, any serious metal head have heard the nasty comments in regards to this album. The Crusade was criticised for being a huge departure in style with more focus on tradition heavy metal thrash riffs and clean vocals. I can understand from a point why some fans might have been a little shocked at the first time they heard those speed metal riffs and Matt Heafy barking like James Hetfield in his prime. But there are still plenty of things to like about this album, even if it is quite inconsistent.

The quality in the guitar playing has definitely improved. There are plenty of fantastic guitar riffs, frantic guitar solos and hard hitting drum moments. Listen to the album title track and fantastic instrumental for an example. Some of these moments surpass the previous album whilst others feel like previous unreleased tracks, tracks that would have made better B-sides. I did enjoy the opening Ignition, a song that sounds very much like Ride The Lightning era Metallica. The band continued down that path for the excellent Detonation. A hot fast thrash metal song that really should please fans of that old school sound. other songs like the single Anthem (We Are The Fire) and The Rising are more tradition with the soaring vocals, mid tempo riffs and big chorus hooks. It is quite a contrast to the previous albums but they are good fun songs, even if a little silly.

Fans of Trivium's first two albums will find plenty of heavier moments, but be warned that these songs are easily the weakest on The Crusade.

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 has been one of the most anticipated metal albums of the year, people have been talking about it for months. BUT does it live up to the hype? The fact that it hasn't been out of my cd player since yesterday should say it all!

The Crusade is a clear progression from Triviums earlier albums (Ember To Inferno, Ascendancy) most notably with the vocals. Matt has replaced the screaming with singing, a move which will surely encourage more new fans. Musically the album is more diverse and the talent in this young band shines through even more. This time we get more input from all members of the band, which can only be a good thing - the tracks written by Beaulieu and Gregoletto are as good as those written by Heafy.

There are a number of stand out tracks on the album, there's a favourite for everyone! Highlights include Entrance Of The Conflagration, And Sadness Will Sear, To The Rats as well as the single Anthem (We Are The Fire). A lot of these tracks have the potential to be real crowd pleasers at gigs. Perhaps the most different track on the album is the title track The Crusade - a 8 minute instrumental which allows them to show off their musical ability. Whilst scepitical about it at first, it is great!

Overall The Crusade was more than worth waiting most of the year for, and no doubt will be in my cd player for ages! They have proved that Ascendancy was not a one off and that they are here to stay! 10/10
