Biography

Orlando, Florida, United States (2000 – present)

Trivium is a band which formed in Orlando, Florida, United States in 2000. The band currently consists of Matt Heafy (vocals, guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Mat Madiro (drums). Heafy is the band’s only remaining original member. Since their formation, the band has released six studio albums.

Trivium cross multiple heavy metal genres such as , , , , , and . Their style has evolved over the years from their earliest work on Ember to Inferno right through to In Waves. There is a clear thrash influence from Metallica and Machine Head, as well as some early In Flames. Trivium has stated that in general they are influenced by musical groups such as Metallica, Machine Head, and Iron Maiden.

At his Lake Brantley High School talent show, frontman Matt Heafy performed a cover version of “Self Esteem” by The Offspring. Vocalist Brad Lewter noticed Heafy and asked him to try out for his band. The pair went over to drummer Travis Smith’s house where they played Metallica’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls”. Impressed with Heafy’s performance, they accepted him into the band known as Trivium. After several shows at bars and local clubs, Lewter quit the band and Heafy took over his position as vocalist. In early 2003, Trivium went into the recording studio to record its first high-quality demo disc. A copy of the demo was heard by German label Lifeforce, who signed Trivium. The band entered a studio to record its debut album, Ember to Inferno.

    Are they going to release a good album or what. I mean, Vengeance is ok, but nothing more.

    Hmmm, in Waves! Not my gavorite song of the album. I prefer a skylien's severance from the album and Of All These Yesterdays.

    Vengeance Falls is way better than I remember it being. Feels like much more of a thrash metal record than anything else. His vocals are quite Draiman-y but they're very powerful and in-tune, and there's a lot of great riffs and hooks throughout the album.

    Ascendancy was their pinnacle. Embers was pretty rad, Ascendancy topped it. Crusade was ruined by the vocals. Shogun is too rigid and not really "rocking". In Waves is pretty rad as it was a return to form of their first 2 albums for the majority. And Vengeange Falls once again totally ruined by the vocals (Disturbed is one of the shittiest radio rock bands of all time, and vocals copying David Draiman is an epic fail).

    Yeah, it's a shame they haven't produced more albums like Shogun. In Waves was ok but Vengeance Falls was really disappointing.

    I love all their albums, but still Shogun is the best they've ever released imho. One of the greatest metal albums for me.

    @MiteoR_01 In Waves is catchy as fuck. They have a lot of better songs, yes, but In Waves gets stuck to the head cause of its chorus. The song was probably made aiming this purpose. I understand your disappointment, but let's face the reality =//

    Cant believe In Waves still is on the top of the song list. I can understand Dying In Your Arms is there cuz it is cheesy as fuck and not really connected to the rest of the Trivium in the way being too simple and note heavy metalcore-style, but In Waves? I know, I know, everybody has their own musical tastes, but, really, In Waves? I just cant understand how the fuck people make a decision to listen to that particaular song, cuz Trivium has waaaaay better tracks to listen when the band is new to you and you are trying to find some songs to know whats the band sounds like... If I ever come to situation when a person wants to check Trivium out and asks me for some tracks for a start - I will advise anything but this song, honestly.
