Anyone got this album, or heard it?

They are totally trying to become Metallica. Which actually isn't a bad thing, as this album is half decent.

Favourite tracks are Becoming The Dragon,and To The Rats

Good album, but I prefer Ascendency. My favorite song on The Crusade is probably The Rising.

"Metalcore" or not, Trivium are totally tits.

They attract the douchebag "eyeliner & fringe" kiddie crowd at shows, but they are a fuckin' wailing band.

One of the better recent "thrash"-y acts.

Haha, the first song Trivium ever played was Self Esteem. And check it out, they're still a pop-punk band at heart!

Yeah, apparently they discovered their singer in a highschool talent contest singing "Self Esteem".

I'm kind of changing views on this band recently, meh. I really hate the vocals (guess I always have), and the "core" scene thing really gets to me, but I still appreciate their guitar-work.

They sound kind of fresh without being fresh at all, if that makes any sense. The singer's a complete clown-fucker, but yeah...kind of not sure where I stand on them recently. Definitely Metallica wannabes, but...guilty pleasure or something I guess.

Repeat: the vocals suck. :p
