Trivium

Hailing from central Florida, Trivium formed in 2000 and quickly built a buzz around Orlando's metal community with a blend of metalcore, thrash, and progressive metal flourish. Having secured a contract with the German imprint Lifeforce, the band issued its debut album, Ember to Inferno, in October 2003 with a lineup that included vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy, drummer Travis Smith, and bassist Brent Young. The debut was well received, and Trivium signed with Roadrunner Records for their next effort.

Hailing from central Florida, Trivium formed in 2000 and quickly built a buzz around Orlando's metal community with a blend of metalcore, thrash, and progressive metal flourish. Having secured a contract with the German imprint Lifeforce, the band issued its debut album, Ember to Inferno, in October 2003 with a lineup that included vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy, drummer Travis Smith, and bassist Brent Young. The debut was well received, and Trivium signed with Roadrunner Records for their next effort. Ascendancy appeared in March 2005, at which point the band's roster had shifted to include Heafy, Smith, bassist Paolo Gregoletto, and guitarist Corey Beaulieu. The album was reissuedin May of the following year with four additional tracks and a bonus DVD. Trivium then visited the U.K. in June for the 2006 Download Festival, followed by multiple European headlining gigs and a stint with America's traveling metal/hardcore fest Sounds of the Underground. The tour saw them playing alongside other heavy-hitting bands like As I Lay Dying, GWAR, Cannibal Corpse, and Terror. The Crusade appeared that fall, featuring a newfound emphasis on singing (previously, vocalist Matt Heafy had relied on screams and throaty growls). Despite the band's active defense of Heafy's vocal approach, Trivium received much criticism for their shift in sound; accordingly, they wasted no time in returning to a scream-filled thrash style with 2008's Shogun. In 2010 the band announced drummer Nick Augusto would be replacing the departing Smith. Later that year the band went into the studio to begin work on their fifth studio album, In Waves, which was released in the summer of 2011 and saw the band bring a bold new approach and maturity in their songwriting. However, feeling that the album's gestation process had been overlong and that they had produced too much material, they decided to focus on quality rather than quantity in the on-the-road writing sessions for their next record. The band tapped Disturbed's David Draiman to produce, and the metal veteran took a real hands-on approach, bringing a new-found sense of melody to Trivium's sound. The finished album, entitled Vengeance Falls, was slated for an October 2013 release. While signature Trivium components were undoubtedly present, the blatantinfluence of Draiman on Heafy's vocals was heavily criticized. The subsequent year, Heafy blew out his voice on stage, an incident that strongly influenced the band's decision to abandon harsh vocals once again on their 2015 release, Silence in the Snow. This record was also more geared towards heavy/power metal instrumentally. This dramatic shift attracted new fans who favored the more accessible sound but simultaneously alienated old fans who preferred the grittier, more extreme approach the band had founded themselves on. Trivium amalgamated elements from all of their previous work in their eighth studio effort, The Sin and the Sentence, released October 2017 to unprecedented critical acclaim. « hide
