This album is the George Costanza of Trivium's back catalog. At first listen, I absolutely HATED In Waves, I thought it was a terribly weak attempt at writing another Ascendancy, really generic and tacky. And then I left this album alone, for months.

But then I listened to it a couple more times, at random times. And... it kinda got stuck in my head... Cah-stan-zah.

Rating: 2 I heard the title track on a local metal radio station, the DJ actually apologized before playing it, I can understand why due to the song sounding like it was written by a try hard 10 year old, it's worse than Morbid Angel's new song 'I Am Morbid', same lyrical maturity though.

If you don't like it, stay off the fucking page and move on - even if you absolutely hate Trivium, it's best to keep your mouth shut and your eyes glued to whatever it is you actually do like, whether it's a nice big penis or a man's juicy ass. Otherwise, I'll bite your tongue off and sew your mouth shut, understood? Good, now run along like a good little troll and SOD OFF.


Try to be a bit more offensive, I beg you sir.

All I see him doing here is bigging up the way men's body parts sound. I think he should become a gay erotica novelist.

  I never really enjoyed Trivium, they have some cool riffs but that's basically it. Anyways, I thought I might give the new album a try but after reading all the comments maybe I should keep my bucks for stuff I know I like.

Agreed. Shogun was really promising but the new one is really boring. At least it's better than The Crusade IMO.

i fucking agree with you who judge this as garbage dont understand a fuck about metal because they have great solos on their albums and pretty trashy songs.


Yeah, a clean and aseptic technique is actually the only thing we can credit to this band.
As for the rest, you just said it: trash.

when i said trash i ment trash metal influencies like the crusade .so do not misunderstand me, i love this album and the previous ones.and you hate this band just because the stupid realo or fake i mean they wanna do metal in all the way possible. they can't do it? i dont give a fuck. i like all the kinds of metal and i dont judge real or fake

Well, after hearing In Waves, I can tell that this album will be a complete piece of emo/core shit. If you like Oli Syke's sexy hair, than this will be the album for you. If you like metal, this will make you puke. And to think, Shogun was actually a decent album.

you're completely wrong i ve got it yeah a grey so dark and all of this yesterdays and watch the world burn are pretty hardcore but some songs like dusk dismantled ,a skyline severance and chaos reigns are METAL and i think that this album is unsane. shogun first of all its not decent its perfection, and this band has trash influencies (not in in waves but shogun and the crusade) so dont call this as metal for emo or whatever because there' s only metal not fake metal or true metal.
i dont give a fuck i love metal and this band.

Yes, my analysis based on the first song was wrong. The title track was easily the worst song, the rest of the album was pretty good. But quit trying so hard to be 'metal'.

the solos are good the screams are good whats wrong with this band,to be not metal?

Why do they still fucking play -_- I mean they could do something productive to the metal scene idk like hanging themselves or sum...

If they hanged themselves, they would be hailed as legends and geniuses who died before their prime, simply because they're dead.

  For those of you who are interested in the band's latest effort, Roadrunner Records has posted an acoustic version of "Built To Fall" online. The streaming is available at this location. Enjoy... or not!
afu - 08.12.2011 at 10:03  
  I have previous albums and I think Shogun was awesome, but they seem to be a hit or miss band. I've held off on buying this, but I listened to some of the songs and I think the production and performances are good. However, the songs are kind of stale in some places. They stated that they wanted to simplify after the technicality of Shogun. So I guess I can't really bitch about them hitting that mark, but I might wait awhile before I purchase it. I'd like to see them work with someone who uses less polish and make a raw fucking album, 'cause they sound great live.

Rating: 8 I like this album! They are a really good band. If you don't like it listen to something else.
Alex Fenger - 27.02.2012 at 23:55  
Rating: 2 I read in an interview (i think in Guitar World) that they thought "Shogun" was too musically advanced for their fans, so they tried simplifying their sound. That was probably the dumbest move they could have made, considering Shogun was actually a cool album and this is pure garbage (in my opinion).
Nemo Atkins - 26.03.2012 at 02:32  
  Nice to see the Trivium hatred hasn't died...(I'm being sarcastic, of course)

Anyway, I don't listen to this album much (in fact, yesterday was the first time I'd listened to it for at least four months), but, having listened to it again, I have to admit that it's better than I thought it was the first time I heard it. I find Trivium to be a poor man's Machine Head overall, but they aren't bad: they just aren't my kind of thing. Still, "Built To Fall" is easily one of my favorite metalcore songs (which, admittedly, isn't as much of a compliment as I want it to sound like).

I probably will be "what" but not a "nut" indeed. If you're a new fan of Trivium, then its okay to give it a 10. but if you're following this band from a long time, then its okay too give it a 10..cause people will still bash on this amateur album. Save it yourself.

  I wasnt a fan of The Crusade.... Im still a Trivium fan.. This album is Trivium ... I like it! You will too! Great energy throughout! It doesnt sound like a fuckin Metallica wannabee band anymore.. Trivium returns to the roots! Its no Florida death metal, but this album is melodic n very enjoyable. It still has alot of clean vocals what can be done without... Still, this album rox!

"Shogun" was too musically advanced for their fans, so they tried simplifying their sound.

What a bunch of retarded fans have they got...
That's like the only album by them where I don't feel the urge to slap myself in the face for putting it on. I'll go further than that and say Shogun was actually good.

Fine, I apologize for saying Trivium fans are retarded. I'll try to explain my thoughts differently:
I think it's silly that an album like Shogun is too musically advanced for fans of Trivium as I feel it's clearly a step up from everything else they ever put out. I'm sorry if I offended anyone, I never mean to offend, I just passionately express my thoughts, which some people might interpret as an insult.
