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, Emberto Inferno, in October 2003 with a lineup that included vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy, drummer Travis Smith, and bassist Brent Young.

    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, Emberto Inferno, in October 2003 with a lineup that included vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy, drummer Travis Smith, and bassist Brent Young. Thedebut was well received, and Trivium signed with Roadrunner Records for their next effort. Ascendancy appeared in March 2005, at whichpoint 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 DownloadFestival, 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 Crusadeappeared 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, theywasted no time in returning to a scream-filled thrash style with 2008's Shogun. In 2010 the band announced drummer Nick Augusto wouldbe replacing the departing Smith. Later that year the band went into the studio to begin work on their fifth studio album, In Waves, whichwas released in the summer of 2011 and saw the band bring a bold new approach and maturity in their songwriting. However, feeling thatthe album's gestation process had been overlong and that they had produced too much material, they decided to focus on quality ratherthan quantity in the on-the-road writing sessions for their next record. The band tapped Disturbed's David Draiman to produce, and themetal veteran took a real hands-on approach, bringing a new-found sense of melody to Trivium's sound. The finished album, entitledVengeance 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 thatstrongly influenced the band's decision to abandon harsh vocals once again on their 2015 release, Silence in the Snow. This record was alsomore geared towards heavy/power metal instrumentally. This dramatic shift attracted new fans who favored the more accessible sound butsimultaneously alienated old fans who preferred the grittier, more extreme approach the band had founded themselves on. Triviumamalgamated elements from all of their previous work in their eighth studio effort, The Sin and the Sentence, released October 2017 tounprecedented critical acclaim. « hide
