One of the greatest metalcore albums ever. A near masterpiece with every song being well written and executed. Trivium manages to take metalcore and infuse thrash elements along with death metal, making them stand atop the metalcore mountain alongside bands like As I lay Dying.

Probably one of the best metal albums of this generation, this is just an amazing album I love the catchy choruses and the awesome drumming in this album, every track makes you sing and headbang the whole ride through

This was way better than expected
This album is hands down one of the best metalcore albums ever made. The pure fury behind the lyrics and vocals, incredible musicianship. Lyrics with a good degree of realism and avoiding the cliches of metalcore. the album is incredible. There's a reason trivium fans love this so much. It's non stop fire.
