Silence In The Snow
Release Date: 2 October 2015
Reviewer: Steve Jenkins
No other band is as responsible as Trivium for creating an entirely new generation of young heavy metal listeners. Now after seven studio albums and a fifteen year career, they’re back with a vengeance, albeit slightly more tame.
This being the very first album to not feature any growls, screams or unclean vocals at all, which has been more and more prevalent with each album. You can tell that vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy has had some serious vocal coaching, as his performance is nothing short of melodic beauty. With the three singles released accompanied by music videos, those tracks are the definite standouts followed by a powerful but sometimes monotonous sound.
Silence In The Snow isn’t a ground breaking release for Trivium by any means, but it’s definitely as good of an attempt as any at being legitimate metal whilst still also being accessible and satisfying for fans of their new and old catalogue.
