Trivium are a still-young band making big strides in the metal world. The Floridians debuted in 2003 with From Ember To Inferno, an accomplished (if typical) metalcore album that at times drew comparisons to bands such as Killswitch Engage or Shadows Fall, with vocalist Matt Heafy performing the usual shouting while mixing in a few clean harmonized chorus lines. Perhaps sensing the glut of metalcore bands that were (and still are) coming out of the woodwork, Trivium has taken some steps away from that genre, as evidenced on their next two releases, particularly 2006's The Crusade. Heafy has traded in his standard metalcore shouting for a vocal style that closely resembles James Hetfield, at times frighteningly so. And that's not the only comparison to Metallica, as the songwriting often borrows liberally from prime Metallica thrash, though there are still areas where a more modern riff comes through. The resulting marriage of 80's thrash and modern sensabilities might well propel this band to superstardom.
