Florida metallers TRIVIUM took part in an online video chat with fans on October 11. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below.
TRIVIUM's new album, "Vengeance Falls", is available for streaming in its entirety at Trivium.org. Due on October 15 via Roadrunner Records, the the follow-up to 2011's "In Waves" was produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE). The first single, "Strife", is available as an instant download with all pre-orders.
In a recent interview with ARTISTdirect, TRIVIUM guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy stated about "Vengeance Falls": "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.
