In the seven-minute clip below, guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy and bassist Paolo Gregoletto of Florida metallers TRIVIUM discuss the making of the band's new album, "Vengeance Falls", available now on Roadrunner Records.
Released on October 15, "Vengeance Falls" was produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE).
In a recent interview with ARTISTdirect, Heafy stated about the follow-up to 2011's "In Waves": "Going into this record, the initial goal was to write the absolute best songs we possibly could. We didn't go into it thinking, 'We need to be technical, we need to be brutal," or anything like that. It was about making the best possible music. Looking at it in retrospect, I feel it does encompass TRIVIUM fans have loved over the years through our first five records. Then, it expands upon those tools with the new music. It's a great summary of everything we've done, taking the listener to another place at the same time. I think it's really awesome it does. Maybe 'Ascendancy' and 'Ember To Inferno' were similar, but 'The Crusade' was the exact opposite. 'Shogun' was technical. 'In Waves' was simple. This one has everything, which I really appreciate."
TRIVIUM's "Strife" video was filmed in July at Studio One in Orlando and was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with NONPOINT, DARKEST HOUR, INCUBUS and ALL THAT REMAINS, among others.
TRIVIUM is currently touring North America with DEVILDRIVER and AFTER THE BURIAL.
