Trivium’s ninth, (yes, really) album finds itself in a very interesting position. 'The Sin and The Sentence' was well received, and was accompanied with a monstrous touring cycle backed up by the likes of Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison including an utterly triumphant Brixton Academy show.

It is of no surprise that music fans across the globe were shocked at the announcement that The Dillinger Escape Plan's new record Dissociation would be the final resting point for the band, though ultimately for the highly respectable preservation of the band's own career. That, of course, brings us to the finale of one of the most explosive and enthralling bands to have torn apart stages worldwide.
