iTunes Review

Trivium’s seventh album is packed with references to the cold, but the band's all-out assault could melt the harshest winter. Matt Heafy is a howling madman on nearly every song—but not so mad that his operatic leads aren't acutely dialed in. On the title track and "Rise Above the Tides," his muscular, melodic vocals leave lots of room for guitarist Corey Beaulieu's searing shredfest—easily an equal star in this intense, maniacal, gorgeously theatrical gallop across a frostbitten plain.

Progress

Let me tell you why this will be the best Trivium album so far. Matt Heafy is not afraid to do what he wants with his vocals. He believes that screaming is easy and singing is hard and that he always goes for what is harder. I believe working with David on the last album helped his vocal ability tremendously and he is now capitalizing and utilizing it in the trademark powerful choruses that Trivium always provides. I look forward to October!

Mixed emotions

One thing that really gets on my nerves is when people make excuses for great bands releasing rather weak material by saying that they are "growing," or "maturing," and that those of us who don't like it as much are just babies who want the same album over and over again. NOT TRUE! Matt has a great scream, and on past albums, a great gruff "Hetfield" like delivery, as well as great clean vocals that were very unique. It appears he has abandoned all three to focus on a higher pitched, more Iron Maiden or Judas Priest like approach to singing. Although I love Maiden and Priest, I'm not so sure it works for TRIVIUM! After all, this is Trivium, not Maiden/Priest. I get that Matt wants to show off his vocal range, but come on man, don't throw out everything and start from scratch when it sounded great before. Add to your sound, don't totally redefine it. It sounds as if the guitars have taken a back seat to focus on the vocals, which would be a shame. So everyone giving it 5 stars should stop kidding themselves and preaching from their fanboy/girl soapboxes, and those giving it 1 star are probably being a little harsh. In my opinion, "Silence in the Snow" is a good song that I will listen to a lot. Great riffs, nice melodies, and the high pitched vocals actually work decently in the song, although I would have preferred his clean vocal delivery from "In Waves" or "Vengeance Falls" any day over this. However, the solo on "Silence In the Snow" is flat out lazy and boring! Being lazy on a solo is not maturing, it is being lazy. We all know these guys shred, so why not do it when they have the chance? I don't like "Blind Leading the Blind" very much at all. The chorus is really dull, and it sounds like arena rock to me, not Trivium. However, the solo on "Blind Leading the Blind" is pretty good. Hopefully the entire song grows on me, which is a distinct possibility. I usually don't write reviews so early without hearing the whole album, but I felt the need to do so in this case. All of you guys saying that "real fans" (whatever that is) will like anything Trivium puts out are fanboy puppet drones. Hopefully there is a nice mixture on this album. I love everything they have put out, with the possible exception of "The Crusade" which was decent, but not great. So nobody can accuse me of just wanting "Ascendency" or "Ember to Inferno" over and over again without any evolution. These guys never disappoint, so I am looking forward to Oct 2 hoping that there is a lot of strong material on the album.

No no no
