Unbelievable! That is the only word that comes to mind when I hear this cd. Trivium have combined the best of their previous cd’s (Ember To Inferno, Ascendancy,and The Crusade)and have delivered BIG TIME the best elements of those three into Shogun. Guitars solos soar in and out with harmonic unison while the drums provide a steady, pummeling beat that locks the songs into place – sometimes I cannot believe just how young these guys are yet sound so professional and seasoned. My current favorite songs are “Down From The Sky” and “Into The Mouth Of Hell We March”.
