Finally, a rock band known for their guitar riffs and not glossy overly produced rock discs has emerged. Trivium has been providing us with mind blowing guitar solos and heavy hitting drums for over a decade. They have just released their fifth album, In Waves, in 2011 and are currently touring with Dream Theatre on the A Dramatic Turn of Events Tour. Don't miss a date on the Trivium concert schedule (2011); Use Eventful as your source for Trivium tour dates and venue information.
The Orlando based band released their debut album, Ember to Inferno, in 2003 and immediately garnered attention from Roadrunner Records who signed the band to a major label recording deal. After constant touring, Trivium released its sophomore set, Ascendancy, in 2005. The album debuted at #151 on the Billboard 200 and they were immediately hailed as the hardest rocking band in the biz. Hard rock magazine, Kerrang!, hailed Ascendancy, as "Album of the Year". Trivium tour dates were scheduled on the tours with Killswitch Engage and at Ozzfest.
Trivium released their third album, The crusade, which debuted at #25 on the Billboard 200. Trivium achieved a life-long goal when they toured with Metallica and Iron Maiden in 2007. They returned to the studio with Nick Raskulineca to produce Shogun, which debuted at #1 on the UK Rock charts and #23 on the Billboard 200 to become their highest charting album yet. Since releasing In Waves, Trivium has spent the bulk of 2011 on the road. They co-headlined the MAyhem Festival and were special guests on the Iron Maiden Final Frontier World Tour. If you didn't get the chance to catch them earlier this year, Trivium tour dates are currently scheduled throughout 2011 on the A Dramatic Turn of Events Tour with Dream Theatre. Don't miss out on a true American metal-core band when they visit a venue near you!
Since they formed in 2002, DevilDriver have enjoyed a slow, steady career build. Their self-titled 2003 debut was a crushing introduction to a new breed of extremity, spearheaded by the distinctive vocal ferocity of front man, Dez Fafara. The band's 2005 follow-up, Fury of Our Maker's Hand was more musically accomplished and experimental. But with their new album, The Last Kind Words, DevilDriver has taken a quantum leap up the evolutionary metal scale, crafting an album that's simultaneously brutal, melodic, technically complex yet instantly accessible.
THY WILL BE DONE:
THY WILL BE DONE just finished recording with Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed) whom Produced, Engineered and Mixed their upcoming debut "Was And Is To Come" with Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed as Executive Producer. The album displays a strong and distinct mix of their influences. Tentative release date remains sometime in early 2007.
Their name, THY WILL BE DONE, is a perfect fit for this unique group from Providence, RI. It compliments both their explosive musical drive and the message they bring as a reaction to the "second-rate" commercial bands that use their stature and gimmicks to sell their senseless negativity and hopeless, nihilistic world views.
THY WILL BE DONE were recently featured in a 2-page spread in Hails&Horns Magazine (March/April 07), their debut has already started to receive stellar reviews from Metal Edge Magazine, AMP Magazine, and RUIN Magazine, the band was featured on the Stillborn Fest with Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, Suffocation, Full Blown Chaos, and Subzero among others.
Over the past few years, many have witnessed them play with the likes of Shadow's Fall, Killswitch Engage, Converge and Diecast, to Skinless, Beyond The Embrace, Crowbar and many others, and have gained the interest of many fans from the different branches of extreme music.
Their songs and arrangements echo the voice of the oppressed and those whom sought much needed change in these turbulant times. THY WILL BE DONE coalesce the unorthodox balance of some of the most bludgeoning music with thought provoking lyrics that are both spiritually and emotionally uplifting. The result is a refreshing stance in opposition to the dissonance of the human condition. Not often enough is there a band who's drive is to inspire millions instead of making millions.
For THY WILL BE DONE, their convictions are set but their sincerity and open-minded attitudes are conveyed like never before. The perpetual abominations of the "rat-race", and those associated with it, will continue to fuel their desire...No water can put out this fire.
