Staff review by

The word trivium is an academic term from the middle ages used to describe the three subjects that were taught in universities at that time. It also serves as the root for the word trivial and indeed, Trivium more that lives up to its name as not only is it trivial, it is also mundane and superficial.

Trivium is yet another in the ever growing line of bands that sound like Killswitch Engage ie. - they play the commercial hybrid consisting mainly of metalcore and having some elements of thrash metal and Gothenburg melodic death metal. We all know the drill - growled/screamed verses, refrains sung in an off-key and whiny manner and an almost inhuman, sterile production which makes the whole thing seem like it was designed and not composed. Every record label these days must have one of these little bands in their arsenal and Trivium is reportedly Roadrunner's secret weapon. Well, RoadRunner must be keen to shoot blanks...

Rating: 8 I first heard these guys on radio station 98 Rock specail night. They decide to do play some new bands & they picked Trivium's Metallica cover of "Master of Puppets". I loved the cover, & come to find out that they screamed, & somewhat thrashed. I got specail edition & some of their good songs are on it. Songs: "Rain", "Drowned & Torn Asunder", "A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation", "Like Light to Flies", "Dying in Your Arms", "Departure", & "Master of Puppets". Trivium is a mixer of modern hardcore & old school thrash. START OFF WITH THIS ALBUM IF YOUR NEW !

Rating: 9 Wooow, thanks Deezer for playing pull harder on the strings. This album is strong, can't explain what makes it so good but I really like it despite not listening to the genres much.
