TRIVIUM: Video Interview With MATT HEAFY

Yanick Tremblay of Musik Universe conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of Florida metallers TRIVIUM at the Heavy MTL festival, which was held July 23-24 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.

TRIVIUM's new studio album, "In Waves", is likely to sell between 20,000 and 25,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on August 9 via Roadrunner Records.

TRIVIUM's previous album, "Shogun", opened with just under 24,000 units back in October 2008 to debut at position No. 23 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD followed up "The Crusade", which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to land at No. 25.

"In Waves" was recorded primarily at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida (with only the drums having been tracked at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida) with the production/mixing team of Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SLIPKNOT, FEAR FACTORY) and Martin "Ginge" Ford, along with engineer Carl Bown. A two-disc special edition is also available. It features five bonus tracks, plus a DVD with a 40-minute, behind-the-scenes documentary, as well as an exclusive concert filmed in a warehouse located in Orlando, Florida, which is the band's stomping grounds. This concert features the first performances of tracks from "In Waves", along with TRIVIUM classics.
