OK, there's been a whole lot of debate (much like there has been with certain other bands in their genre) over Trivium. Most of the time I hear constant bashing of the band (i.e. "trivium sucks, man", "they're generic") without a little thought to go into it. So I thought I'd pull a podbassist and make me an unofficial Trivium thread where all discussion of the band goes in here. However, I would also like to do a short "Featured Artist"-style write-up on this band and shed some light for those of you who are curious about this band.

Trivium is:

Matt Heafy-Vocals/Lead Guitar
Corey Beaulieu- Lead guitar/backup vocals
Paolo Gregoletto-Bass guitar/backup vocals
Travis Smith- Drums

Trivium formed in 2000 in Florida after the original singer of Trivium saw Heafy perform The Offspring's "Self Esteem" at a high school talent show (Heafy was an admitted pop-punker and nu-metalhead before being converted to the ways of thrash metal). The original singer parted ways with the band after a few gigs, and Heafy became the frontman and lead singer. Trivium had underwent many lineup changes, and ended up with Beaulieu and Gregoletto. Gregoletto had previously jammed with Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden.

Trivium self-released a 7-song demo in 2003 and was signed by German-based independant label Lifeforce records shortly thereafter to release Ember to Inferno, a brutal attack with a mix of metalcore, thrash, and melodic death metal. Ember to Inferno featured beautiful acoustic instrumentals, breakneck-speed guitars, and melodic, dual guitar solos that strive to bring back the days of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Technical flare is a strong presence in each song, and it shows that Trivium is about true musicianship, a great quality in a band if you ask me.

In 2004, Trivium released the demo song, "Like Light to The Flies" to be released on the Headbangers Ball Vol.2 compilation disc. Needless to say, the song was a hit, as they were quickly signed to Roadrunner Records and released their major label debut, Ascendancy in March, 2005. It's safe to say that Trivium is establishing themselves as a top metalband with this record. Ascendancy is one of the strongest efforts to be put out this year. It is kind of a departure for the band, as it is filled with more clean singing and melodic passages than usual. Still, the dueling guitars are a dominating prescence throughout the record.

As Trivium's population grows, things will only get much bigger for this band. They are touring on Ozzfest this year, you defenitely don't want to miss out on seeing them.

Pull harder on the strings is pretty cool...

I have ascendancy, nothing to be shouting about IMO...sound slike most other metalcore...

Though the basissts hair movement in the vid to pull harder is amazing

Nice thread!

I think that's the lead guitarist you're talkin' about, dude :lol: he's the only one with long hair in the band. Ascendancy, to me, was Trivium's equivalent to "Ride The Lightning". You know, letting everyone in the music industry know "this is who we are, this is what we do and we do it damn good".

Im currently awaiting some nudge to get me to buy Ascendancy. 'Like Light To Flies' is one of my favourite songs i've heard this year, and Pull harder... is playing well with my ears.

However, i fear they may just be blips on a generic record.

OK good I'll stick with this thread, but the other one was going OK.... these guys are incredible, anybody who doesn't like them just hasn't listened, anybody who says they are generic hasn't listened or has just heard "Like Light to Flies". Ascendancy IMO is considerably heavier than From Ember to Inferno, which, if anything, I would tag with the more generic metalcore label. They went to a far thrashier and heavier sound in Ascendancy, while simlutaneously adding even more melodic and catchy passages. If that makes sense

:p

I've got to agree. I'm extremely skeptical of most music but when i heard this band i really thought that they were worth listening to and the guitatist kicks ***, i play bass but i can still see who ace that guy is. Even my closed minded Steve Vai warped friend admitted he was good (acheivement i tell you).

I saw them live a few weeks ago. It was so intense. Simply amazing. Their lead wasn't turned up loud enough though. Still amazing though. They played Master Of Puppets at the end. That and Pull Harder were the highlights.

Trivium for me is a metalcore/neo thrash band that sticks out in my mind. I think a big reason people don't like them is because of Matt Heafy's vocals, which IMO, do suck at first, but you after a while, you begin to acquire a taste for it, kind of like Dave Mustaine's voice. However, Ascendancy is a strong album, and personally it's going to be on my top 10 album list for this year.

Yeah lyrically, not one of their strongest songs, but goddam if I don't love yelling out that chorus line, it pumps me up to the max hearing that

If you watch the video for that song, Matt Heafy looks like he's gonna bust a blood vessel in his brain, he screams that so hard

I hate living on the isle of man ( in between england and Ireland ) as we have one music shop which is HMV and its tiny so they don't have bands like trivium in stock, which means internet ordering and it takes like a month to get here but I think its worth the wait.

Coolest depends on who you talk to, but one of the most talented young bands? Definitely! And sure, they seem like pretty chill guys, only one of them looks like the stereotypical metalhead, but they sure play the hell out of their instruments. Order Ascendancy, you will enjoy

The one song is friggin awesome, track 13. I forget the name, I'll check it when I get home. Deceived you've heard, and the song from their demo (while pretty brutal, no clean vox), isn't very good. Its actually heading towards death metal territory, which makes sense seeing as how Matt Heafy is in a death metal band, Capharnaum

I'll give a quick comparison IMO, obviously Metallica still is one of the legends of thrash (for three albums at least) and brought metal to the mainstream more than any other band

Vocals: slight advantage Trivium, Hetfield's voice is classic sure, but he doesn't do much with it, he sings great, but his growl is tame (although at the time it sounded fierce), and lately the vox have been awful. Heafy is incredible, he has the best metalcore growl I've ever heard, very powerful, and he can sing melodically or fiercely (a la Hetfield)

Guitars: slight advantage Metallica, Hammett's soloing is legendary and Metallica has some of the best thrash licks ever written. Trivium uses dual lead more effectively as well as more melodic with their guitars, and can generally play as fast as Metallica

Bass: push, Cliff was great, but Newsted was only so-so, trivium doesn't feature their bass playing a whole lot, neither band emphasizes it

Lyrics: push, Metallica has had many more songs to win this portion but Trivium's ETI was an amazing concept album with poetic lyrics. Metallica dealt more with gov't although lyrics on past three albums have been awful. Trivium has better song titles

Drums: BIG advantage Trivium. Lars sucks and I never thought he gave the band any edge with his drumming. Travis is incredibly fast with his double bass and his presence is always felt in Trivium's music

So, slight edge to Trivium although it is tough to compare because Metallica has so much more material and historical relevance, and their new stuff is god awful. Let's hope Trivium stays strong, I think they are only getting better

Saw them play last night in Amsterdam. Great band, excellent musicians. We did an interview with Corey (guitars), he told us that the next record will try to get away from the typical metalcore cliche vocals and breakdowns, and have more technical/proggy playing. Anyway, I also saw Trivium at rock am ring a week ago and they were playing great there as well. Definitly one of the more talented bands out there imho.

I think his crouch is an attempt to mimic Hetfield.... the way he holds the guitar reminds me of James

That's great that they are going to try to be more technical, I would hate it if this band sold out and made more mainstream music

On a side note, does anybody think Trivium's vocals are the weakest part of the band? I think their singer's metalcore growls/screams/whatever don't seem to set them apart from other bands in the genre.

However, his singing voice is decent, i will give him that.

I like it more than most other growl vocals, but if the excluded those growl vocals they would still be a great band(maybe even better). I think his clean vocals are very good.

Trivium
06-13-2005, 08:18 PM
His clean vocals are amazing, normally I just fast foward through the first 2 minutes of like light to the flies, the rest is amazing, he has a great voice and the solos rock.

Since I guess this is the "official" thread ill post what I had in another thread here

Trivium, yeah they are amazing, and Ascendacy beats anything metallica has done since the early 90's, If Trivium can pump out a few albums better than what they currently have, they'll be at the top of the metal scene. The solos are amazing, especially in Like light to the flies and Pull harder on the strings of your Martyr.

And of course their "fade to black" equivilant, Dying in Your Arms is also amazing.

I wanted to hate this song because it doesn't fit the style of the rest of their stuff but I couldn't, it is just so **** catchy, almost like Trivium saying "we could put out stuff that would top the Billboard charts too, but we just really don't want to, so screw all of you"

He pretty much only growls, he doesn't go to a high pitched scream like other metalcore acts... I think his growl is a hell of a lot deeper than most metalcore acts

I like when he occasionally does the half sing/half growl like in the insane middle part of "Departure"

KittensInMicrowaves
06-13-2005, 09:35 PM
two lesser known songs from Ascendancy

Trivium - Declaration (http://s51.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1JN5QGVVMT2P832RXBLYIAJ1T2)

Trivium - Departure (http://s38.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=37Q1DLE99BNIZ3R99W75HAJDRJ)

These songs are masterpieces, the thrash part in the middle of Departure is nothing short of insane, the death metal riff that comes in at :16 of Declaration is classic

FlyingPaul_83
06-13-2005, 10:00 PM
in an interview with guitar world, Matt heafy said that declaration best represents trivium.
"It's got a little bit of everything that is Trivium: parts that are fast and angry, and others that are sloew and melancholic; elements of foreshadowing and irony; and best of all, constantly moving juxtaposition."

juxtaposition-To place side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.

I thought they had some bloody good riffs, but overall it was just too heavy on the ear. I couldn't really pick out any nice melodies over the 'vocals' and drumming, and apart from some of the guitar work they didn't really appeal to me.

Rain is a good example of it, but he's just so solid throughout the album, the drums are always felt, whereas in many bands I feel the drums disappear a lot. You want to hear insane drumming, check out Darkest Hour's drummer, the guy is a machine.....

Please don't reply that so and so death metal drummer is a thousand times faster, LOL

Ok, now that i have heard other songs by them except Pull Harder, i can give my judgement.

To me, they seem to be standard run-of-the-mill metalcore with better solos and a singer who actually SINGS. Otherwise, they don't really stick out for me. Sure, their drummer is better than others (younger too), and the guitars have pretty good solos, but the rest has all been done before.

I just can't ever consider these guys in the same genre with bands such as Hatebreed and Norma Jean, they are just metal to me...

But if I had to categorize, I'd say a mix of Gothenburg and thrash with metalcore screams/singing

2.The voice of the lead singer he sounds like he is PISSED
Off and every metal head loves that.
3.Music videos, pull harder on the strings of your
martyr GENIOUS!!! who else could think up a sic
demented creature painting something but you dont know what and then a the end they show what he painted,
and its there motha F/N cd cover that is beautiful my friends.

I bought Ember To Inferno, I liked it.
I bought Ascendancy, I liked it.

They really don't thrill me...like, all their riffs are very similar...they use a lot of overplayed rythm behind the leads. Like the solo on the song ''Like Light to the Flies'' at 3:55 or so...It's the exact rythm as the song ''Poision was the cure''(Outro Solo). I know a LOT of riffs have been copied and played a lot...but when I heard that, It dissapointed me. The solo barely makes it out of Pentatonic. Don't get me wrong...they're talented. It's just Just not what I expected that album to sound like.

On the other hand...
Ember to Inferno was half-way decent. :thumb:

well yeah mabey, but ive been obsessed with pretty much Metallica, with other bands that ive liked thrown in there.

Sadly I was sucking on a bottle when the black album came out. Trivium is the first good band ive heard that is active and at their best during my lifetime, so yeah, im really into them.

metallica, maiden, megadeth, priest, all the big names in metal were inspired by black sabbath, as well as maiden.

Trivium, and GOOD modern acts grew up listening to the bands that dominated metals glory days, seeing their influence in new music is really cool

He pretty much only growls, he doesn't go to a high pitched scream like other metalcore acts... I think his growl is a hell of a lot deeper than most metalcore acts

I like when he occasionally does the half sing/half growl like in the insane middle part of "Departure"
He plays with a high pitched scream in "Suffocating Sight".

Trivium is mainstream, but not to the extent of most other metalcore bands out in the media. They have very little fan base in comparison to Shadows Fall or Killswitch Engage. Saying that, Trivium has one of the fastest growing fan bases in metalcore. Trivium will probally explode fan population wise after the ozzfest tour.


On an other note, does anyone in this thread like Capharnaum? They are an other band of Matt Heafy's. He does lead vocals in this band, but I don't believe he plays guitar. They aren't quite metalcore or melodeath like Trivium is, they are a technical death band. I suggest fans of Trivium's harsh vocals check them out.

I have Capharnaum's album, very heavy, I like it. Heafy basically uses the same vox he uses in Trivium minues the clean stuff. Trivium isn't really metalcore, they are a mix of thrash, melodeath, and metalcore. Just call them metal!

I believe in a couple tracks later on in the album he uses actually death growl. I'm not too keen on if that is really him preforming those death growls on those tracks, but they seem to be well executed. A little more practice on those and he will have them mastered.

Lots of them. Most metalcore bands have a lot of thrash and melodeath influence on top of their hardcore backgrounds, in case you hadn't noticed. The typical structures of melodeath/thrashy riff with screaming verses followed by singalong choruses is a staple in metalcore. Just listen to Like Light to the Flies for example.

Another point, even pure Hardcore is connected to a metal, even if a roundabout way. A lot of thrash took influences from old punk, and a lot of other metal bands take influence from thrash, so really its just a distant divergence in the musical branch. But thats really just extraneous information.

The real key to the issue is the name Trivium itself. I don't know what it says any more, but if you were a fan even just a few months before Ascendancy came out, you would have seen that on the main page of their website that the name Trivium is derived from the latin word meaning "a 3-way intersection", and they went on to say, in their case its an intersection of metalcore, thrash, and melodic death. While there is far less hardcore/generic metalcore influence that bleeds into their sound than a lot of the current bands, it is still their nonetheless.

As soon as a Hardcore band begins to incorperate Metal into their sound they cease to be Hardcore and become Metalcore.

Having an influence of hardcore doesn't have to mean they have to sound exactly like hardcore. Trivium takes alot of influence from around the world of music, the three big ones: Thrash, Melodic Death Metal, and Metalcore. You can hear in some parts where they can sound like some metalcore/hardcore bands. You cannot pinpoint a band to sound like Trivium, because they take a great deal of influence from alot of genres.

No, I'm afraid I can't trust you, because that's just a retarded statement. Metal and punk are related, probably most closely by punks ties to thrash. The genres cross at 2 points that are significant to this debate: First at the origin of thrash , where bands took a lot of influence from earlier metal of course, but also quite a bit from punk. Essentially they took early metal and and speed and rawness, and after some more developments you have thrash. Trivium is largely thrash, and therefore has distant roots in punk. The second convergence is modern metalcore bands taking Melodeath & Thrash and adding hardcore attitude and song structures, again directly relating to the punk/hardcore scene. Trivum admits to taking heavy influences from metalcore, and therefore there is another direct connection.

Of course I can't cite a hardcore band that sounds like Trivium. I never said they were hardcore. But they undeniably have influences rooted in the hardcore/metalcore scene. Anyone who actually comes out and says that Trivium is a straight-up hardcore band is either deaf or mentally retarded, but to say that their music stems from some hardcore as an influence is a perfectly valid statement.

Where in fucks name do you hear any influence from Hardcore in Trivium's music? I'm sorry but there just isn't any. If you are influenced by a band or genre you would obviously incorparate charecteristics of that genre or band's sound into your own.

I agree with the opinion on the pop idea of that song but does the time the song takes to be played all the way through matter because if you're going to judge on how long the song is then you would be saying that metallica's die die my darling would be a terrible song. Oh by the way Trivium are the best band around at the moment.

It's incredible how popular they are becoming so quickly. They just finished shooting a video for "A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation" down in Orlando. I can't wait to see it, but they had to use a shortened version of the song for the video. It still should be sick, I can't wait.

The Video For AGTTHOT is going to be straight up awesome. I've read about the idea of the whole video and it sounds like a keeper.

And with Dying In Your Arms, I really think it shows Triviums range as a band. It is by far the best "Radio Song" I've ever heard by a metal band.

Sorry to interupt, but could you name me a 'cheesy' death metal band?

Well, I don't know if you include gore and grind bands under the banner of death metal too... if you do, almost all of them.

A prime example of a technical death metal/gore band is Necrophagist.

How can names like "mutilate the stillborn" or "fermented offal discharge" not strike you as cheesy.

Power metal is obviously cheesier, but death metal is pretty high up there. Gore themes just make me laugh.

Think about it though...if you had a political power metal band, it wouldn't clash too well, would it?

Power metal is its own thing, just like death/gore metal. The gore metal stuff I think is stupid, but no one says ya gotta listen to it!

Alright, y'alls, I'm bringing this up for two reasons:

1). This is the Trivium thread to end all Trivium threads, needless to say we don't want to see any more pointless Trivium threads popping up, eh? eh? Plus, Trivium discussion=teh secks. Just ask Kittens in Microwaves.

2). Cover band competition: If any of y'all honkey cracker bitches want to do a cover and submit it into the comp, let me know in this thread and we'll decide what song we want to do. I call dibs on 1st guitar slot. :D

You certainly don't...

Trivium are pretty much metalcore, but more just plain metal...

Slayer are abotu as thrash as you can get.

I am a big fan of Trivium. I have been listening to them for a little less than a year now. I think that Ember to Inferno is much heavier than Ascendancy, but there are a few not so good songs on Ember to Inferno.

GuitarOne put them at #4 I think for the upcoming guitar heros or something like that.

There is also a live concert of them up at http://www.fabchannel.com/ . I have watched it a few times. Its pretty good :)

If I have time tonight, I will upload both Trivium Albums to YSI.

Trivium are more of a hybrid of thrash, slight death metal and a small amount of metalcore. And to the opeth matey who said Slayer are definitly thrash, i was bein ironic you f***wit!Of course slayer are thrash!

its good to see theres a trivium thread thats actually decent, nice work fellas (and to any ladies who might've contributed... hey, we can only hope!). Trivium are a great band, they're so 80's and 90's, while still being modern and relevant, i love it! i really cant tell if i like ascendancy or ETI better... i really dont know! and to all of u guys out there saying "pls upload the whole albums etc etc", its getting old now! i say if u really wanna support the band and realy enjoy them to their full extent, go and buy an album at the very least... i suggest u buy both!

'to burn the eye', 'ember to inferno' and possibly 'my hatred' and 'fugue' were the first songs to really stand out... 'to burn the eye' has just got the most infectious riffs, its got such a cool song layout, hard to explain. there's a verse, then there's the pre-pre chorus riff and pre-pre chorus, then theres the pre chorus (fantastic fast picking!) and then the chorus... boy im confusing myself now! sorry im just a little excited!

yup, trivium would probably have to be the discovery of 2005... so young (im a year older than matt heafy), so much potential, a big well known label behind them... i get shivers just thinking where they could go... both good and bad shivers!

Trivium are amazing, great guitar work especially on the lead. Best band to come out for a long while and with some great riffs.
