Trivium Bassist Explains Why There Will Never Be Another Metallica
The arrival of the new generation of metal titans easily ranks as the single most anticipated event among the guitar-driven crowd, but according to Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto, this isn't a realistic expectation.

Chatting with Stereoboard, Paolo was asked to comment on Trivium commonly getting dubbed "The Next Metallica." Addressing the touchy matter, Gregoletto replied: "It's hard to pick bands out and say 'They're going to be the next Iron Maiden! They're going to be the next Metallica!.'

"I've thought about it and I've realized that every band is heading on a certain path, and I think the bands that will be left will be the ones who concentrate solely on writing the most honest music and who take it to that next level live," the bassist added.

"I think there are bands out there and I include Trivium with those. We want to push ourselves on our records, and we want to push ourselves live. The rest of it is just up to people connecting with it.

"People can't expect another Iron Maiden or Metallica because those bands built upon what came before them and created their own unique thing," Paolo concluded. "Metallica are a once in a lifetime band, and for anyone to reach that bar is impossible. Everyone just does their own thing, and it'll be those bands that'll succeed."

Do you think "The Next Metallica" or "The Next Maiden" are bound to show up any time soon?
