Crusade. For me it's not the vocals, it just seems that their songwriting was better then than on Shogun.

I can understand confusion over the rules in some cases, but Trivium is mentioned in the title of the sticky explaining them...

I enjoyed their later works with the likes of Mozart, Chopin, and Bach, as opposed to their older works with TRIVIUM DO NOT BELONG IN THE ****ING METAL FORUM.

Please...please...you guys are driving me nuts. Why do you do things without reading? Who the hell does that? Who the hell just makes a thread without seeing if one already exists, AT LEAST?!

They started out as a metalcore band. Not a run-of-the-mill metalcore band, but a metalcore band nevertheless. Yes, their most recent work has ditched a lot of the metalcore elements, but we can't open them up for discussion here just to talk about one or two cds. The only way for them to be allowed in here would be for a very large fanbase to build up here in the metal forum, as was the case with BTBAM. As far as I know, BTBAM is the only band with which that's been the case.

Also, from what I've heard of Shogun, the screaming sucks. I prefer the normal vocals from The Crusade.

Pull Harder!!!

Ermm I think Trivium are metal, they shouldn't be in the same section as A7x Atreyu BFMV etc. they're too awesome for all that.

Anyway I think Shogun is the best....followed by Ascendancy very closely, then Ember To Inferno and waaaaaaaaay far back is The Crusade (even though it was a good album is wasn't comparable to their other stuff)

Every time I see them on a magazine cover I cannot stop looking at the guitarist (don't care about the name) and his massive forehead

That guy needs to learn how to not have a glacial sized forehead

Thats me sorted

I agree that they are much better than bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, and Bullet For My Valentine, but it doesn't change what they are. They just do it better than those bands.

They're not hardcore.
They're like, metal, with some melodic and hardcore elements in the music.
If only there was a word for bands like that...

They were metalcore on their first two albums. They don't have many (if any) core elements anymore.


So what exactly would you class them as?

Actually, don't bother answering, I'm sick of hearing the word Trivium...
