Trivium and 5B Artist Management have partnered with Cooking Vinyl to re-release the band’s 2003 debut album, Ember to Inferno, along with a deluxe edition that includes 13 additional tracks that have never been available yet have earned evasive legend status among diehard fans, on Dec. 2.

“The purpose of this release is to show the very early beginnings of Trivium—perhaps an era unbeknownst to most listeners of the band,” said Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy. “To look back at Ember as the starting point of Trivium becoming recognized worldwide is a staggering thought for me, considering I was 16/17 years old during the writing and recording of the record.

For some people, a vacation is a time of relaxation, of escaping the real world and the responsibilities that come with it. Some visit with friends and family. Others travel to new and exotic locations around the world.

Me? I take a break from my day job to cover four concerts in five days, in two states and the District of Columbia. (more…)

Trivium: "Building Momentum"

Trivium: “Building Momentum”

Just months after the release of their fifth album, In Waves (Aug. 9, 2011), Trivium is on the verge of a major breakthrough. After opening the main stage of last year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and then touring Europe with In Flames, the band returned to the U.S. to find its single “Built to Fall” climbing the charts of FM radio. Trivium then hooked up with In Flames again for a U.S. tour, even playing acoustic sets for radio along the way and giving the headliners a run for their money each night. At the tour’s stop at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, Md., Live Metal’s Jeff Maki talked with bassist Paolo Gregoletto about the success of In Waves, the band’s relationship with In Flames and early plans for the next Trivium record.

Trivium: "Recruiting fans, In Waves"

Trivium: “Recruiting fans, In Waves”

For fans of Orlando, Fla.’s Trivium, the band’s 2005 sophomore album, Ascendancy set the bar and is the standard for everything before and after in their career. So naturally, after two excellent, yet more varied albums in The Crusade (2006) and Shogun (2008) that saw Trivium trying to establish a new sound, Ascendancy seems to be the blueprint for In Waves. No more emulating Metallica or any other of the band’s idols and influences—this was going to be an honest, hardcore Trivium record. And mark my words: Not only is Trivium my pick for breakthrough band on this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, but with In Waves, Trivium will be metal’s biggest breakthrough in 2011 and into 2012. And a big part of this is due to the band’s new drummer, Nick Augusto, a former drum tech for the band who joined as a full-time member in late 2009 after Travis Smith parted ways. On new songs like “In Waves,” “Dusk Dismantled” and “Black,” Augusto’s triggered, hard-hitting, ferocious style brings the band to a new level.

Trivium has spent the hot summer months alternating opening the main stage on this year’s Mayhem Festival before embarking across the U.S. as openers for Dream Theater’s “A Dramatic Turn of Events Tour.” Later in the year, they’re heading to the U.K. for “Defenders of The Faith III,” with In Flames, Ghost and others. On the Mayhem stop July 31 in Camden, N.J., Live-Metal.net’s Jeff Maki talked with Nick Augusto about the festival, details of In Waves and his transition into the band. Warning: Generic questions may follow.
