With this release, Trivium have further cemented their position in metal’s monarchy.

More Trivium More Trivium

3.5 stars

Trivium's last album In Waves was a sprawling, highly ambitious effort. It was a lot to take in, yet it lost its way – which is where Vengeance Falls takes a different path. With only ten tracks of unending and brutal rifferama, this is the band's most cohesive work. Gone are the '80s metal clichés of soaring melodic choruses, with frontman Matt Heafy and co bringing a rhythmic post hardcore sound with less guitar gymnastics and a refocused energy on keeping things dirty and heavy. With this release, Trivium have further cemented their position in metal's monarchy.
