    Love the new album. So long as they don't make another Vengeance Falls...

    I still don't know.

    The fact that the rerecording of Pillars is by far the best thing I've heard in this thread doesn't really speak for the new record to me.

    Vengeance wasn't everyone's cup of tea sure, but i loved the album (it was actually the album that got me into trivium). But i also really enjoy listening to disturbed so I suppose I may be a bit biased :lol:

    I'll put it this way: When I rank Trivium albums, I don't even put Vengeance Falls anywhere.

    That album is GREAT. Can't understand why/how anyone doesn't like it. So many great songs, IMO. Older trivium fans are very....weird about this band. Drives me nuts.

    BTW, saw them live in NYC a couple of weeks ago. Phenomenal show. Bent really raises the bar for this band, where they should be, and I hope he stays. They're so tight, you can tell how much work they put into things. I just wish they played for more than 1:15. I have zero interest in Arch Enemy, despite loving Jeff Loomis. I left 3 songs into their set that night. Can't take the vocals.

    Personally, I got into Trivium because of the progressive elements. I came from bands like DT and Opeth and loved me some good old Thrash, too (especially the more proggy records like AJFA and Rust in Peace).

    So my favourite Trivium songs always were stuff like Declaration, The Crusade titletrack and basically the entirety of Shogun. Then came In Waves, which was very much a hit and miss record for me. Way to many by-numbers songs. And Vengeance was a full blown straight modern-metal record. Not a single song that even slightly exceeded the 6 minute mark.

    So that was it for me and they never got me back in. If I hear another fantastic long instrumental track or a 10 minute monster from them I might just check them out again.

    Since their albums are so different and the genre jump a lot it leaves fans very divided. I loved Vengeance Falls and its the only album I liked start to finish since Ascendancy. Shogun is a big fan favourite but I've never gotten into it and would be quite low on my list.
