Trivium is my one of my favorite Metalcore bands. With all the interest in the guides on the metal subreddit, I decided to do one in honor of Trivum. I'm no audiophile so excuse me if I mess up on the production.
Ember To Inferno:
This is the album that started it all for Trivium. It was written and recorded when all the members of the band was under 20 years old. Lead Singer Matt Heafy was 17! You could tell that all the pieces were here when they hit the big time with Acsendancy and The Crusade. The albums kicks off with an instrumental to a heavy thrashy song that immediately reminds you of Metallica on their classic albums. Pillars of Serpents is my favorite song of this album. The intro is fucking heavy!
Must Listen: Pillars of Serpents, To Burn The Eye, Full Album
Ascendancy: This is their major label debut and a album that is considered a masterpiece. It reached the Billboard 200. Argueably, their most well-known song is on this album. Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr. This album is quintessential. If you were to buy only one Trivium album, I would say this one. You get a bit of everything.
Must Listen: The Whole Album!
The Crusade: This album is in my opinion, their weakest. Some people will go as far as to say they sold out and went mainstream. I won't go that far. I still listen to it every now and again. This album will appeal to the Thrash fans though. There were many comparisons made to Metallica after this album.
Must Listen: Unrepentant, Detonation, The Crusade(Awesome Instrumental)
Shogun is a welcomed return to the metal core style of their earlier albums. Of Prometheus and the Crucifix is my favorite Trivium song. It is so heavy and I love the vocals. This album is second on my list of best Trivium albums behind Ascendancy. The twin guitar work is just amazing.
Must Listen: Of Prometheus and the Crucifix, Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis, Shogun
I'm sorry to say it but I do not own this album so if anybody wants to chip in and put this, it would be much appreciated!
Thank you for reading and I hope you liked it!
