TRIVIUM flew to Nashville, Tennessee on March 31 to enter the studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, SHADOWS FALL, DEATH ANGEL) to begin recording the follow-up to 2006's "The Crusade". A late 2008 release via Roadrunner Records is expected.

"For the first time, we can't look at our songs and say who the riffs sound like," guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy told Revolver magazine about the group's new material. "We're really making our own stuff and our own kind of music and art form, and that's exciting."

TRIVIUM reportedly wrote around 40 songs last year and demoed the best 15 or so before commencing the new LP recording sessions. "When we went in, we thought, 'Hey, these songs are good enogh for the album already,' but we've overhauled almost everything," Heafy told Revolver. "Nick has encouraged us to explore so many new ideas that we never would have thought of."

In a previous interview with Revolver, TRIVIUM guitarist Corey Beaulieu stated about the upcoming CD, "We want to capture the best ingredients of everything we've done. Each song has a little bit of everything, going between something heavy and then melodic, and then back to something heavy. So it has a really interesting balance. On 'The Crusade', Matt did almost all singing, so this time we're bringing back some of the screaming that's on [2005's] 'Ascendancy'."
