Released on October 20th of 2017, “The Sin And The Sentence released by Florida’s Trivium has made waves across the Metal community from night one I’d release up until now and foreseeable beyond as they have embarked on a massive world tour for their 8th studio release and surely their best one yet. TSATS world tour made a stop in Johnson City, Tennessee at Capone’s to wreak havoc on the sold out, rowdy East Tennessee crowd, and we’ve got everything you need to know about this fun little packed out sow. This leg of the tour involves opening performances from Bad Omens and Fit For An Autopsy that got fans moving and ready for Trivium’s loaded setlist. Continue reading →
Big news for Trivium fans, and even better news for fans of the ‘Shogun’ album: if you haven’t got a chance to see the Florida rockers yet in 2018, they’ve added even more dates to their 2018 schedule this Fall with the announcement of the ‘Shogun’ ten year anniversary tour. If you weren’t able to experience the ‘Shogun’ era almost a decade ago, you’ll be able to go through this span on the band’s career all over again this Fall 2018! Continue reading →
Bad Omens is a Los Angeles based metalcore act that formed out of several different projects in 2013. Vocalist Noah Sabastian began writing music outside of the current band he was a member of in Richmond, Va. Noah then contacted his friends, guitarist Nicholas Ryan and bassist Vincent Riquier. They helped put the missing pieces together with Joakim “Jolly” Karlsson and Nick Folio.
We have one day behind us with some amazing acts that we will remember their performances for years to come. The Saturday lineup is certainly competitive in regards to both Friday and Sunday and is full of varying genes and new and veterans acts to keep our attention for the entire day. Palaye Royale and Bad Wolves are two of the biggest up and coming bands currently in rock, especially Bad Wolves with their cover of the iconic Cranberries song “Zombie” which has become the number 1 rock song in the world. Unfortunate for us they both play at the same time. Yet another band that performed early in the day that is truly making a name for themselves is Toothgrinder; If you missed their set you truly missed an amazing experience. Then we get into the more veteran acts of the day like Asking Alexandria who have reunited with vocalist Danny Worsnop, as well as Trivium the band that was labeled as “the band that would save metal” when they formed. Then we get the nostalgic performance by The Used, led by eccentric front man Bert McCracken. As the day comes to a close we are left with the headliners Five Finger Death Punch, and the fierce and fiery performance by Godsmack to end our Saturday evening. The dream would be to not miss a single band, but with interviews and overlaps we weren’t able to see every band, but the ones we were able to see impressed us and left some big shoes to fill on Sunday.

In Early May I got to catch my very first Trivium Concert at Manchester Music Hall in Lexington KY. If you aren’t familiar with Manchester Music Hall, first let me say that its one of, if not the best small concert venues in Central, Kentucky. Prior to this concert, I did a little research on the band. I had heard of the band over the years and had checked out the radio-friendly cuts but I had never really dug into any of the album tracks. One thing I love about listening to tracks off a bands albums 24 hrs before going to see the band really makes me appreciate the hard work, blood sweat, and tears musicians put into making an album. Most bands track songs just for studio cuts while others track just how they would be on stage as if they were performing the songs live. Being a musician myself I can certainly say that in my many years of stage experience less means more. The more backing tracks and other electronic gear you bring to a live show other than whats necessary raises the chances for more shit to go wrong. Continue reading →

2017 has been a crazy year for me personally but there were always 10 records that kept me going and those are the 9 above excluding ‘Wrong One To Fuck With’ by death metal machine Dying Fetus. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
If you aren’t already in the know, TRIVIUM recently released their new album “The Sin And The Sentence” with Roadrunner Recordson October 20, 2017. Well, it doesn’t seem like they are wasting any time because they have also released an official video for the track ‘Thrown Into The Fire’ and holy shit is this a heavy one! The song features the newest addition to the TRIVIUM family, Drummer Alex Bent and it is their first new music since 2015s Silence In The Snow. ‘Thrown Into The Fire’ is full of raw emotion and power, I would definitely say that is some of Matt Heafys best work vocally on both the harsh and clean spectrum, and his transitions into both styles are flawlessly executed, and perfectly timed. TRIVIUM fans the world over should rejoice because they are back, and heavy as they’ve ever been! Continue reading →
Trivum quickly became a household name when they formed in 1999. For their sophomore release ‘Ascendancy‘ they were signed to Road Runner Records who helped push and promote the band even further. I was fortunate enough to see the band in the early years of them coming up in the metal scene when they were out on tour with Danzig. They have often been compared to Metallica, because of their thrash inspired sound and their cover of the classic track “Master Of Puppets” on their Road Runner debut helped as well. Trivium are seen as one of the best modern bands out there and will likely leave a lasting impression on the world of metal for years to come. Their previous release ‘Silence In The Snow’ charted as high as #3 on Billboard in both Rock and Hard Rock album categories. With a pretty quick turnaround and a tremendous amount of touring the band recently released their 8th studio album ‘The Sin and the Sentence’ on October 20th, 2017. Continue reading →
