Staff review by
The Sin And The Sentence got Trivium back on track after the misfire that was Silence In The Snow. What The Dead Men Say doesn't derail the Trivium express, but it's not quite a fulfilment of the promise of its predecessor.

This album is massive. It's so hard to pick a favorite from it.

Went into this with an open mind based on The Sin and the Sentence but left underwhelmed. I can get on board with generic and derivative music so long as it's performed well, which this is, but something that immediately dissuades me is the formulaic pop structure of a song, something that appears all too often throughout this album. There are engaging moments that get stopped abruptly before they're allowed to breathe and explore in any meaningful amount in favor of detouring back to a simplistic, forcibly catchy chorus. I didn't find it terrible, surprisingly, but I didn't find it great, unsurprisingly.

Trivium has the ability to write some good melodic chorus that make their songs easily listenable. However the latter part of the album is somewhat a letdown.
Leeches everywhere.
