Trident came together in 2007 like many other bands do, with some guys who played in other bands meeting up and deciding to do something new. In short order Regain Records came calling, and the band debuted in 2010 with World Destruction. This is one of those albums that straddles the line between death and black metal, borrowing from both but not quite sounding like either, though this probably leans a touch toward modern black metal. Most of the guys have extreme metal pedigree elsewhere, so one could expect a good deal of professionalism and polish here. It's plenty ferocious, and while not terribly original, it delivers on its promise of, um, world destruction in a musical sense. Groundbreaking? Not really, but a good first effort.
