  • The Crusade

    'IGNITION'
    " 'Ignition' is an extremely thrashy track, it's got no bullshit! The vocals come in almost immediately, which is quite unusual for Trivium. The rhythm's really fucking fast."
    'Detonation'

    " 'Detonation' is part two of 'Ignition', lyrically. In a way you can think of it as a three-piece song, like an opera, I guess. It's got the slow, heavy shit which is like the first movement. The second movement is fast and chaotic and the third movement is more chilled out and melodic.

    'Entrance of the Conflagration'

    "This song as a long song title! It's another really fucking thrashy one. The chorus is extremely catchy again and it reminds me of Megadeth's 'Countdown To Extinction.'"

    'Unrepentant'

    " 'Unrepentant' is one of Corey's [Beaulieu, guitar] songs. All of his songs remind me of old school Annihilator or old school Megadeth. They're very 'notey' and it was really hard for me to learn how to play this one. Corey can do a lot of straight down-picking like Hetfield, so this is a very busy song and it's got a nice solo section. I did all the Lyrics again, though, on this record."

    'Anthem (We Are The Fire)'

    " 'Anthem' is a track on which Paolo [Gregoletto, bass] laid down a really fucking sleazy pre-chorus. He's been the master of the sleazy riffs on this album! Think of Motley Crue, Skid Row, and Dio! It's fucking rad!"

    "And Sadness Will Sear"
    " This song is one of mine. I was thinking new-school Rammstein when I wrote it. It's written on a seven-string and it's slow, minimalistic and very heavy. The verses have no guitar but just a melody thing with the bass and drums. Lyrically, it's a song dedicated to and about Matthew Shepard who was a gay kid who was hunted down in Wyoming in 1998 and beaten almost to death and left to die. It's a very emotional song and it's very heavy and dark. It's got a depressing feel but I wanted to do it because I don't think many people know the story"

    "Becoming The Dragon"
    " 'Becoming the Dragon' is a title I got from a book that I really liked. It's a little groovier and is a head-banging, fist-pumping kind a song. It's a realy most song. Then, right in the middle, I really use the seven-string and it goes into a very Dream Theatre-type part, then a death-metal part and just a world of technical shit!"

    'To The Rats'

    " 'To the Rats' is a Paolo song, It's one of the fastest thrash-metal songs we have. It's fucking balls-out thrash"


    'This World Can't Tear Us Apart'

    " 'This World Can't Tear Us Apart' is basically this album's 'Dying In Your Arms'. Whereas that song was about relationships and being good, about making your life better and taking a glimpse of the life that used to be. It's another rock song."


    "Tread The Floods"
    " This has a very technical riff. It actually took me a really long time to learn this riff and it's all over the place! But the chorus ended up sounding like a Guns N'Roses song that never was!"

    'Contempt Breeds Contamination'

    " This one is recorded on a seven-string guitar in a different turning. It starts off with a really technical death-metal riff, not new-school death metal but a Cynic or Atheist style death-metal. It's really fast and really thrashy but it's got a really catchy chorus. It almost sounds like a radio-rock but in a good way."

    "The Rising"

    "This was also written by Paolo. I don't even know how to describe it. It's a style I've never heard before. He played it for all of us and we were like, 'Is this a cover?'. It sounds like something Def Leppard might have done. It sounds sleazy and dirty but catchy, anthemic, and gigantic too. It's fucking awesome!

    "The Crusade"

    " 'The Crusade' is an eight minute instrumental. It's very, very skilled and it's got some odd time signatures. It's really fucking good. We were thinking of "Orion' when we wrote it. It doesn't sound like it but we wanted a long instrumental track that really makes people think."

  • Biography

    Biography
    The band members chose the name Trivium, which is Latin for the intersection between the three schools of learning: grammar, rhetoric and logic, because they liked the way it implied an open-mindedness to different styles, and summed up their musical aesthetic. The original named the band chose was the Kenny crum expierience but it was soon shot down leading to the current name. After a couple of gigs at parties, the original singer quit the band and Heafy took the wheel. For the next two years, the band honed its sound, and in 2002 Heafy won the Best Metal Guitarist Award at the Orlando Metal Awards. Trivium headed into the studio in the beginning of 2003 to record their first high-quality demo disc. From this, German label Lifeforce signed Trivium and sent the band into the studio to record Ember to Inferno.

    After going through various lineups, the band finally found guitarist Corey Beaulieu, a dedicated death metal buff who brought a new influence to the band's sound. Landing a bassist was even more difficult. Numerous players came and went before Paolo Gregoletto was brought in just in time for the tour with Machine Head. Feeling so strongly about the group, their music and their dedication to their craft, Paolo left another group to be a part of Trivium. Trivium signed to Roadrunner Records after good sales of their debut and began writing songs for their new album.

    By July 2004, Trivium had 80 percent of the material for Ascendancy written and fine-tuned. Then in September, the band headed into Audiohammer and Morrisound Studios. They then embarked on several tours with Machine Head, Iced Earth, Killswitch Engage, Fear Factory. "What's cool about a tour is every night's a party," Heafy says. "It's not always because everyone's drinking, but people are getting along well and hanging out. The energy from the crowds is amazing." Staging themselves as one of the up-and-coming metal bands of today's rock world, Trivium were finally set to release their newest album.

    In the year 2005 Trivium released their second album Ascendancy on their new record label Roadrunner Records. The album was released March 22. At this time Trivium was on the Roadrage 2005 US tour, featuring bands such as The Agony Scene, Still Remains and 3 Inches of Blood. Since then the band has been on a constant tour run.

    Through summer the band hit the UK for Roadrage 2005 UK with Still Remains and 3 Inches of Blood for 13 dates. This tour heightened their popularity in the UK considerably during that tour building up a presitgious reputation with Kerrang! and Metal Hammer magazines. Trivium also performed Download Festival 2005 in the UK, where they were opened on the Main Stage. Despite the early 10 AM start Trivium played a set, setting themselves as the Band of the Weekend. Kerrang! hailed their show as 'The best band of the weekend by a long mile.'

    In the end of July and into August Trivium was on the road with Ozzfest 2005 playing second stage along side bands like As I lay Dying, Arch Enemy, Killswitch Engage, and Rob Zombie. Such a lineup did not strike a chord with the Ozzfest fans, who'd have rather seen such bands play Main Stage.

    After Ozzfest the band headed back over to the UK for a headlining tour with All That Remains. From there they headed over to Japan with Arch Enemy. This was Matt's first time back in Japan since he was born. Their visit to Japan immediately boosted their far east fan base and blazed Trivium's name through the world for the first time.

    After this, the band headed back to the United States and Canada for a main support tour with Children of Bodom and Amon Amarth. On this event Trivium experienced a less-than-friendly welcome by Children of Bodom fans.

    In the start of 2006, the band did the main support for the Swedish band In Flames, in North America. The welcome by In Flames fans was friendlier than with Children Of Bodom fans, but DevilDriver received a better fan reaction.
