Rock Hard conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of Florida metallers TRIVIUM at the Musikmesse Frankfurt 2013 fair, which took place April 10-13 in Frankfurt, Germany. You can watch the chat below.
TRIVIUM's new album, "Vengeance Falls", is likely to sell between 14,000 and 17,000 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 — which was produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE) — arrived in stores on October 15 via Roadrunner.
TRIVIUM's previous CD, "In Waves", opened with 22,000 units to land at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band's career. The group's 2008 CD, "Shogun", premiered with just under 24,000 copies to debut at No. 23. The effort followed up "The Crusade", which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to enter the chart at No. 25.
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.
