Hailing from central Florida, Trivium formed in 2000 and quickly built a buzz around Orlando's metal community with a blendofmetalcore, thrash, and progressive metal flourish. Having secured a contract with the German imprint Lifeforce, the bandissued itsdebut album, Ember to Inferno, in October 2003 with a lineup that included vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy, drummerTravis Smith, andbassist Brent Young. The debut was well received, and Trivium signed with Roadrunner Records for theirnext effort. Ascendancyappeared in March 2005, at which point the band's roster had shifted to include Heafy, Smith,bassist Paolo Gregoletto, and guitaristCorey Beaulieu. The album was reissued in May of the following year with fouradditional tracks and a bonus DVD. Trivium then visitedthe U.K. in June for the 2006 Download Festival, followed by multipleEuropean headlining gigs and a stint with America's travelingmetal/hardcore fest Sounds of the Underground. The tour sawthem playing alongside other heavy-hitting bands like As I Lay Dying,GWAR, Cannibal Corpse, and Terror.

Crusade appeared that fall, featuring a newfound emphasis on singing (previously, vocalist Matt Heafy had relied on screamsandthroaty growls). Despite the band's active defense of Heafy's vocal approach, Trivium received much criticism for theirshift in sound;accordingly, they wasted no time in returning to a scream-filled thrash style with 2008's Shogun. In 2010 theband announceddrummer Nick Augusto would be replacing the departing Smith. Later that year the band went into the studioto begin work on theirfifth studio album, In Waves, which was released in the summer of 2011 and saw the band bring a boldnew approach and maturity intheir songwriting. However, feeling that the album's gestation process had been overlong andthat they had produced too muchmaterial, they decided to focus on quality rather than quantity in the on-the-road writingsessions for their next record. The bandtapped Disturbed's David Draiman to produce, and the metal veteran took a realhands-on approach, bringing a new-found sense ofmelody to Trivium's sound. The finished album, entitled Vengeance Falls,was slated for an October 2013 release. « hide
