Metal Hammer

Trivium’s hot streak continues with new album What The Dead Men Say.

Kerrang!
Their knowledge, passion and proficiency comes to the fore in this showcase of contemporary metal, one that rampages along with no respite or obligatory acoustic number.

Exclaim!
This is a continuation in a great direction for Trivium. With Bent firmly fitting in his place as the band's drummer, the chemistry between the band members is better than ever.

Metal Sucks
