Trivium - Vengeance Falls

"Though perhaps overly mechanical, ‘Vengeance Falls’ remains compelling and staggeringly textured."

Trivium’s ‘Vengeance Falls’ isn’t always hands-down exceptional, but it certainly has its moments. The Floridian quartet’s thrashed-up metalcore now stands tighter and more focused on tracks like ‘To Believe’, meaning their sixth full-length is a step forward. And although the guitars appear more restrained, from cadences to melodies, the influence of producer David Draiman’s day job (singer with Disturbed) is constant in Matt Heafy’s vocal deliveries. It’s distracting, but also means the frontman puts in the most powerful vocal performance of his career, and that’s often the difference between solid tracks and surging anthems. Though perhaps overly mechanical, ‘Vengeance Falls’ remains compelling and staggeringly textured.
