TRIVIUM blasts back onto the scene with a third effort that is one of the best metal releases of 2006 and quite possibly the heavy music album of the year. "The Crusade" sounds like the record that METALLICA could have made during the height of its early years, and while some may be uncomfortable with frontman Matt Heafy's occasionally too-dead-on James Hetfield impersonation, his sheer energy, bravado and fire, coupled with the band's relentless onslaught of blistering leads, amazingly technical yet memorable riffing, and dizzying rhythms captures not just the best of METALLICA, but MEGADETH, TESTAMENT and a number of other bands from the glory days of speed and thrash.
EMI are proud to announce the release of 'From Fear To Eternity: The Best Of 1990-2010'. A double-CD set spanning twenty years, this follows the huge success of 2010's studio album 'The Final Frontier' which hit the number one spot in 28 countries around the world. It also became the band's highest-charting album in the USA where Iron Maiden have just been awarded their first Grammy for Best Metal Performance, for the song 'El Dorado', taken from 'The Final Frontier' album, and which is included in this selection.
Widely tipped for greatness after the surprise success of their 2005 second album Ascendancy, but then briskly consigned to the metallic dumper after the shambolic dropped clanger of 2006's The Crusade, Trivium have had to reassess their cocksure youthful ambitions over the last decade, but Vengeance Falls suggests that they still have what it takes to become major players.
Despite being major contenders for a decade, Trivium have made a habit of taking subtle detours with each album and never quite nailing their colours to one musical mast.
