Trivium: 'Shogun' Track Listing
0
Florida metallers Trivium have finalized the track listing for their new album, "Shogun", which is scheduled for release on September 30 via Roadrunner Records. For "Shogun", Trivium chose not to record in the familiar environs of their home state of Florida. Instead the band headed to Nashville, Tennessee to work with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Stone Sour). The result is a monolithic album that crystallizes the band's sound and showcases trivium's finest elements. Vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy is thrilled with the album, saying, "We made a cohesive, epic metal album that combines all of the ingredients of everything we feel we have ever done 'right' musically, while adding a new direction that the music called for. We had so much fun creating this album and hope our fans feel that energy when they listen." "Shogun" track listing: 01. Kirisute Gomen 02. Torn Between Scylla And Charybdis 03. Down From The Sky 04. Insurrection 05. Into The Mouth Of Hell We March 06. Throes Of Perdition 07. He Who Spawned the Furies 08. Of Prometheus And The Crucifix 09. The Calamity 10. Like Callisto To A Star In Heaven 11. Shogun Trivium reportedly wrote around 40 songs last year and demoed the best 15 or so before commencing the new LP recording sessions. "When we went in, we thought, 'Hey, these songs are good enogh for the album already,' but we've overhauled almost everything," Heafy told Revolver magazine. "Nick has encouraged us to explore so many new ideas that we never would have thought of." In a previous interview with Revolver, guitarist Corey Beaulieu stated about the upcoming CD, "We want to capture the best ingredients of everything we've done. Each song has a little bit of everything, going between something heavy and then melodic, and then back to something heavy. So it has a really interesting balance. On 'The Crusade', Matt did almost all singing, so this time we're bringing back some of the screaming that's on [2005's] 'Ascendancy'." Thanks for the info to Blabbermouth.net.

    well they got famous from biting metallica..... lets see if they can evolve into something moderately new

    whoa. does anyone know what half the songs mean? ha. but they can use words as epic as those.. the music will be just as mindblowing as it always has been. i'm for the screams.. but they are good without 'em too.. just better with screaming
    nimrod_hahahaha
    ember to inferno is kind of falling by the wayside here. yeah ascendancy was great and the crusade was pretty good, but they had an awesome sound on the first album!

    ALL of these are Greek inspired not japanese like "shogun" would imply. Kinda weird. Should've chose a better album name i think.

    flipthatchicken : Jesus this is gona be awesome!! And to all the haters, if you can find one specific part of a song that directly copies Metallica, whether it be vocals, guitar or whatever, i will congratulate you. Good luck. ...all of the crusade. and when writing it, they said that metallica really influenced them. so there. how are you going to congratulate me?

    All of the Crusade...hahah. Here we have someone who is tone deaf, and knows NOTHING about music. Trivium is nothing like Metallica. They are both good in their own ways, but trivium is way more tech/prog than metallica. Their music is dischordant and broken up and progressive, while metallica's is all power chords (all though it's dead good dont get me wrong) Go learn what musical difference is.

    I do find it funny that Ember always falls by the wayside. But then again, that album was utter utter utter utter bollocks. period. This should be good hopefully.

    Hellz ya its about time... at times like this i wish i had a time machine haha

    Anyone noticed that because metallica wrote some amazing songs in there time that no one really care that they haven't wrote a song to the high standards they set themselves like what? 15 years ago? I'm not going to argue with people that say trivium are metallica rip-offs, all i'm going to say is that i bet trivium will never release anything as poor as st anger.

    i can't wait. whats with the weird names though??? (btw, alexi laiho is a guitar hero)

The only thing I hope they stay away from guitar wise is sweeps, pretty much every sweep arpeggio they played on the crusade was muted and sloppy, and thats studio playing, you get so many chances in the studio, and you can dragonforce style them if you really suck and just chopshop it to sound good, it was still terrible, their scales are decent, but leave sweeps to real guitar heros like Alexi Laiho, leave the screaming to him too. It isnt prog unless every song on the CD is over 8 minutes long aparently.
    Corey normally does the singing now. The sweeping was fairly good. Alexi Laiho isn't a guitar hero. To be prog it just has to have progressive elements.
    THE BULGE
    i hate the names of thier songs they just are too much and arent cool to me. they try too hard to use big words and when you try too hard it sounds lame
    Azrael`
    those are some baddass song names, heafy better have worked on his song writing abilities ! really looking forward to this album

    I can't wait Trivium is one of the most talanted bands in metal/metalcore. And also I think the reason they are compared to Metallica so much is that they started off very young, just like Metallica. And they are very talented metal musicians, like Metallica....was. lol

    dude, im a huge fan of trivium and metallica, but the crusade sounds like metallica 1986 in 2006. thats what metallica would sound like if they kept up the puppets days

    I love Opeth more than anything, but this has to be the dumbest comment in this thread so far.

    The names sound pretty awesome, i can't wait for this seriously, Its gonna be their swansong album!
    metalb0y
    Sounds good. I can't wait. I loved the Crusade. Really great album. It's not a metallica ripp off album...
    Vulgarr
    Someone has been using a thesaurus with these song titles! But seriously, I'm sick of people calling them ripoffs of Metallica or At the Gates. Of course there's going to be similar riffs when they're playing thrash in standard (And especially during their metalcore days). I've heard nearly all the riffs that they supposedly "ripped off", and none of them sound similar enough to raise any suspicion. Whether or not you like Trivium is subjective, but don't say bullshit you can't prove. EVERY band is influenced.

    Hm....screamo huh?.....right.... Can't wait to hear the first single off this!

    i think its tight that the last song is called shogun, you know it gunna be ****in heavy and epic
    Trivium!
    Hopefully they bring back alot of Ascendency's vocals. I like Matt's 'heat-free' singing rather than his Metallica singing from the Crusade.

    I really hope they've gone in a different direction with this. They have the skill, now it's the songwriting and originality they need to get down. I'm always open to new albums from bands I don't really like the back catalogue of, and think that if they've done this album right, it'll be nothing short of fantastic.
    The Virtuoso
    Looks like Matt has decided to start writing good lyrics again. I look forward to this album.
    Kreuger
    the end of the song "rain" sounds like the end of "one".
    If you're referring to the drum beat (I dont know because I only know the songs off The Crusade and I assume so because of the reply you got) then maybe you should listen to Darkness Descends by Dark Angel and tell me Lars didn't pick that up from Gene Hoglan.

    You don't listen to much metal do you? :no:

    Makes me think of Nile when I read those titles. I am PUMPED for this album.

    Awesome, I can't wait, the songs sound very Ascendancy-esque if you ask me Gonna be ace, I need to see these guys live for a fifth time!

    Which ones are the ones with only clean vocals? Those are the only I'm interested in.

    im glad the new album is gonna be more heavy... because honestly... i couldnt and still cant bring myself to even BEGIN to listen to The Crusade. It sucked that bad... . Hopefully this one is better. keep it metal

    anyone notice how the album is called shogun but most of the songs are referencing greek mythology? last to my knowledge I don't remember a Shogun in ancient greece
    Cobain_Is_King
    Looking forward to Shogun. They sound nothing like Metallica, they're past it. A new bands doing good, get over it.

    wiki says: "Kiri sute gomen (斬り捨て御免 or 切り捨て御免: literally, authorisation to cut or authorisation to leave (the body of the victim) is an old Japanese expression dating back to the feudal era right to execute and be excused. Samurai had the right to strike at anyone of a lower class who was compromising their honour; the attacked person would generally seek to defend himself." an interesting song name, cant wait to hear it (y)
    Glam-Hammer
    why title most of your songs after Greek mythology and then call it Shogun - a japense reference?

It isnt prog unless every song on the CD is over 8 minutes long aparently. Heafy's scream was awesome. It added so much intensity to their music. I admit their sweeps are not the greatest but they are getting there. But I'd say they are doing a damn good job for their age.
    We'll ignore the fact that Alexi has lost a lot of fire since his golden days. His sweeps are pretty damn sloppy, nowadays.
