My Trivium Albums List WORST to BEST

Trivium have both a devoted fanbase and an equally loud group of critics. Lauded by some for their diverse genre experimentation and the quality of their musicianship; yet derided by others for their inconsistent tone and allergy to criticism. Here is my personal list of their albums ranked worst to best.
The Crusade

A good album, but not without a myriad of flaws. The album was proof that Jason Suecof needed to go as producer. The album was simply boring and generic in instrumentation, even if the quality of it's vocals and standout tracks were good to listen to.

After a stellar debut album, the band continued with Jason Suecof as producer and created a great sophomore album in Ascendancy. Featuring blistering guitar work and drumming; Ascendancy was Trivium going full-blown Metalcore with fantastically heavy results.

After opting not to work with Jason Suecof again so they could explore new ideas. Trivium found a new producer in Nick Raskulinecz, who brought the band into a more Thrash Metal territory. Shogun features some of Trivium's best tracks in "Kirisute Gomen" and "Throes of Perdition", and has a devoted following amonst Trivium fans. A truly spectacular album.
Ember to Inferno

A debut album to die for. Being the first album with producer Jason Suecof, he helped the band bring out their inner Metalcore, with fantastic screaming, brutal instrumentation and fantastic tracks like "Pillars of Serpents". The album was a success and spawned a partnership between Jason Suecof and Trivium that would last for two more albums.
Vengeance Falls

Vengeance Falls has an interesting place in Trivium trivia (ha). This album was the last of two albums featuring Nick Augusto on drums, and it also featured the controversial change into Melodic Metalcore with David Draiman as producer. Nevertheless, Vengeance Falls is a fantastic album featuring beautiful instrumentation and Nick Augusto's finest drumming during his brief time in the band. Despite it's controversial status amongst fans, Vengeance Falls remains an underrated addition to their discography.
The Sin and the Sentence

The introduction of Josh Wilbur brought Trivium into a more reflective mood, with the band opting to return to their early Thrash and Metalcore roots, though it also contains it's own progressive changes as well. The Sin and the Sentence is a brilliant album with one of the most amazing finishes in any album ever. Truly a standout album to an already gold-tierd discography.
Silence in the Snow

The hiring of "Elvis" Baskette as producer would introduce one of the most controversial moves in Trivium history. Baskette's penchant for mainstream Rock and Metal brought the once Thrash band into straight Hard Rock/Heavy Metal territory. This mainstream change, however, did not compromise the music at all. In fact, it elevated the songs. Featuring breathtaking instrumentation and a High-Quality sound output, Silence in the Snow ranks as one of Trivium's finest hours. A Rock juggernaut with few rivals.
In Waves

Full disclosure, "Built to Fall" is my favorite Trivium song. Even without that song, In Waves is Trivium's greatest album. Featuring famous Metal producer Colin Richardson, Trivium decided to go all out on experimentation with songs ranging from straight Metalcore, to Heavy metal, to even Groove Metal. In Waves was Trivium trying everything they could to create their most ambitious effort, and it paid off in spades.
