"Brave This Storm" lyrics:

Have you beheld how our ending befell?
We are the catalyst; engineered hell
The depths we've sunken to
The violent things we do
A cleansing tide would eradicate all of you

How did you think when in apathy's drink
That doing nothing would spare you from the brink
You're equally at fault; now broken by the assault
The righteous, the victims, the villainous ones and all

I know what you're hiding from
I know what you're hiding from

The waves keep crashing over
They pummel me, over and over
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

Should we go quietly?
Accept that all is lost
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

Solo: Corey Beaulieu

Wash us away in the tides of decay
Extinction soon will claim us all as his prey
We're pulled in to the sea; the tempest has been set free
I'm wide awake when the lightning comes beckoning

Burn us alive for our sins and our crimes
We are the wretched ones: malevolent slime
Existing to consume; everything we once knew
Take us, break us, submerge us inside our tomb

I know what you're hiding from
I know what you're hiding from

The waves keep crashing over
They pummel me, over and over
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

Should we go quietly?
Accept that all is lost
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

This quest is impossible
Brave this storm
I'm feeling my insides pull
Brave this storm

I'm being devoured whole
Brave this storm
My soul is poured in the world
Brave this…

Solo: Matt Heafy

The waves keep crashing over
They pummel me, over and over
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

Should we go quietly?
Accept that all is lost
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

The waves keep crashing over
They pummel me, over and over
I don't think I can ever brave this storm

Should we go quietly?
Accept that all is lost
I don't think I can ever brave this storm [End of lyrics]

TRIVIUM filmed a video for an as-yet-undiclosed song off "Vengeance Falls" last month at Studio One in Orlando. The clip was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with NONPOINT, DARKEST HOUR, INCUBUS and ALL THAT REMAINS, among others. Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.

In a recent new interview with RoadrunnerRecords.com, TRIVIUM bassist Paolo Gregoletto stated about Draiman's approach to producing: "He was there for everything. Where we recorded was this sort of loft above his house [in Austin, Texas], and that's where we did a lot of the recording, a lot of the pre-production. We got an electronic drum set and we all just kind of sat around in a circle and we played the stuff, we listened back to demos that we did, we recorded a couple of things, just rough demos so we had the parts recorded and could remember them and reference them later. But he was really hands-on with everything. It was definitely very meticulous, very well organized how he went through attacking every part of a song, whether it was the drums or the guitar parts, bass parts, and finally the vocals, making sure it all fit together really well. I mean, the lyrics and the vocals, that was the biggest thing we had never really had before, was working in pre-production with finished vocal ideas, and I think the thing David really brought to the album was being so well organized and having real clear goals of how we were going to achieve everything along the way. In my opinion, that's definitely the sign of a great producer, because there are so many things to what a producer does, but in my opinion, being organized and having a real clear-cut plan for how we're going to achieve all the ideas we've been talking about is super-important for a producer."

Paolo also spoke about TRIVIUM's songwriting process for the new CD and how it differed from the band's previous experiences in the studio.

"Definitely in the past, we kind of approached it like...we definitely had some records that were a bit of a 180 from the previous one, but now we've really learned what works within our band and it's really about improving those things, bettering them each time we go into it," he said. "I think once you find what your identity is, you just want to keep improving and building upon that, and adding new elements in but also retaining what makes your band unique among the thousands and thousands of bands that are out there. So I think with this record, it wasn't a total clean slate, it was really just tightening everything up and bringing everything that makes us TRIVIUM together even more and writing the best material and having an album that, start to finish, never really lets up. It never has any filler or dead spots, and I think David really being a fan of TRIVIUM, and really seeing our growth as a band along the way, helped out, because it wasn't like he was coming in and not really knowing what our band was about. He really understood what we've built as a band over the last seven, eight years, and how important it is to really respect all of that and to keep that stuff that's made us TRIVIUM, and just better it — bigger melodies, bigger hooks, bigger riffs, everything. Sonically, he wanted us to make a thicker-sounding album, and he definitely really pushed [mixer] Colin [Richardson] and [engineer] Carl [Bown] to make this our biggest-sounding record. And I think they did an amazing job, to be honest. We've worked with Colin for so many records now, and he's totally outdone himself."

TRIVIUM will hit the road in North America this fall with DEVILDRIVER, AFTER THE BURIAL and SYLOSIS.
