Just about one week to go until the new Trivium record ‘What The Dead Men Say’ will be released. Today the band shared the third new track from that album ‘Amongst The Shadows & The Stones’.
“The reason I love metal is it goes against the grain. The best way to overcome darkness is to make something creative. Whether the impact is small or large, I hope it’s positive for listeners. We hopefully built a community to make them feel safe where they can talk about what they want, enjoy it, and get help if they need it. It’s possible to even find a lot of love and light in there.” Matt Heafy
For the last 20 years Trivium – Matt Heafy (vocals, guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Alex Bent (drums) – have, aside from a Grammy nomination, taken a lead role in modern Metal.
The Roadrunner debut ‘Ascendancy’ is already one of the musical highlights of the genre and won amongst other things ‘Album of The Year’ by KERRANG! in 2005, reached gold-status in the UK and was sold over 500.000 times world-wide. Metal Hammer placed it amongst the top 15 of ‘The 100 greatest Metal albums of the 21st century’. They had six consecutive debuts in the top 25 of the American Billboard top 200 and five direct top 3 debuts in the ‘Top Hard Rock albums’, followed by the latest album ‘The Sin And The Sentence’. The record catapulted the streaming counts of the band over 250 million. They were nominated with the song ‘Betrayer’ for the Grammys in the category ‘Best Metal Performance’. The record was praised by many, like Decibel, Loudwire, Ultimate Guitar, MetalSucks and Metal Hammer, which called Trivium ‘one of the best bands of modern Metal’. The band performed live with Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and many more. They played Main Stages at big festivals like Rock am Ring, Wacken, Download, Bloodstock, KNOTFEST and more.
