Metal-Trails.com conducted an interview with bassist Paolo Gregoletto of Florida metallers TRIVIUM at this year's Wacken Open Air festival, which was held August 1-3 in Wacken, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.
TRIVIUM will release its eagerly awaited new album, "Vengeance Falls", on October 15 via Roadrunner Records. Produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE), the follow-up to 2011's "In Waves" will be available for pre-order at Trivium.org beginning August 20. The first single, "Strife", will be available as an instant download with all pre-orders.
"'Vengeance Falls' is the culmination of everything we've gone through; the representation of struggle endured from within and experienced from the world. Every failure and every success has led us to this moment. 'Vengeance Falls' is this moment in time," said TRIVIUM vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy.
Producer David Draiman added: "'Vengeance Falls' is a masterpiece of metal. It is [TRIVIUM's] finest work to date, and a record so strong that it will blow the doors open to a world they deserve to dominate."
Long hailed as one of modern metal's most powerful live acts, TRIVIUM will hit the road hard in support of "Vengeance Falls", kicking off with a North American co-headline tour alongside DEVILDRIVER. The dates get underway Thursday, September 12 at Boise, Idaho's Knitting Factory and then continue through mid-October.
"Vengeance Falls" marks a massive creative milestone for the acclaimed metallers. The collection — recorded earlier this year at Draiman's Austin, Texas home studio — sees the band pushing the envelope on their own distinctive sound, a sonic approach that saw "In Waves" hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hard Rock Albums chart upon its release, not to mention a stunning Top-15 debut on The Billboard 200 — their highest chart rankings to date.
