Following the absolute monster that their previous record 'Forever' became, Grammy nomination and all, could prove to be a tall order for most, the weight of expectation crushing them like an ant underneath boot. Have Pittsburgh’s finest proven themselves up to the task?
If the rest of Trivium’s career is made up of shows like this and albums like The Sin and the Sentence, they won’t go down as that band who followed the leaders; they’ll go down as leaders on their own terms.
For years now Trivium have been proudly supporting bands they love, vocalising their support on stage, through interviews and on their shirts. Your first loves always inform your future loves, and the best gateway should bands do the same. Their current tour package of Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison is just the latest example of Trivium’s desire to share great music with their fans. Not only that though, it’s a bold statement of confidence from a band so deep into their career that they would risk bringing bands on the brink of their peak to open for them without fear.
