Trivium is a band from Orlando, Florida. Their first album, Ember To Inferno, was released on Lifeforce Records in 2003, while their second album Ascendancy was released via Roadrunner Records on March 22nd, 2005. They recently released their third album, "The Crusade", on which the band's sound changed slightly, replacing screaming with clean singing and settling on a heavily Metallica-influenced style. They even play their older songs in this style now and even contributed to a Metallica cover album 'Master Of Puppets- ReMastered' playing the title track. Last year, the band hit the UK with Still Remains and 3 Inches of Blood for the 13-date Roadrunner Roadrage tour. The shows led them to far greater popularity in the UK, a feat proven by their critically-acclaimed opening slot at 2005's Download Festival.TRIVIUM GENRES
Towards the end of late summer 2005, the band took part in Ozzfest 2005 playing on the second stage alongside bands such as As I Lay Dying, Arch Enemy and Rob Zombie. When the 'egg-gate' issue surrounding Sharon Osbourne and Iron Maiden sparked, the band stayed true to their idols and despite Osbourne's ensuing sabotage of their sets, were quoted as saying "I wouldn't throw anything at Maiden, not even money".
After Ozzfest the band headed back over to the UK for a headlining tour with All That Remains, before playing a series of shows in Japan with Arch Enemy, where their reputation was enhanced and anticipation for their third full-length grew.
Next, the band headed back to North America for a tour with Children of Bodom and Amon Amarth, which ran from November 9th to December 16th. After a big hit at Big Day Out in New Zealand and Australia with the likes of Muse, My Chemical Romance and Tool they are now on Lamb of God's Sacrament tour in the US along with Gojira And Machine Head. Afterwards a tour through Europe with Annihilator and Sanctity (instead of machine head) Ensued the tour the US.
Trivium are also joined the 2007 Family Values Tour with Korn, Evanescence and Atreyu and many others.
They are currently taking a break but will be starting the The Black Crusade Tour in November 2007, with Machine Head, DragonForce, Arch Enemy and Shadows Fall
