One of the more modern metal bands of the 2000's that have roots in thrash with Metallica being their biggest influence. They are one of the most talented bands of the new age and continue to make awesome music
Trivium is not emo.

If you think Trivium is emo, you might as well be listening to St. Anger

A band that punk ass metal fans don't like because one of their albums entered the Billboard top 40. They didn't copy Metallica. Metallica might've influenced their some of their work.
Fake Metal Fan:Fuck trivium!!! Sellouts! All they care about is money! That's why they're so popular!

Smart Person: Can't blame them for writing music that people actually want to listen to.

A metal/metalcore band from the early 2000s. It's form by 4 members from Florida, though the lead singer was born in japan and moved to America. One of there influence is metallica and iron maiden.

There a pretty good band, even if it is different from the old days, I still consider it Metal. People who say it's not metal basiclly just can't relise shit can't stay the same, and that's something we can't change. If it's Metal it's Metal, not pussy rock you would hear from finger eleven and it's not fake metal like The Darkness. If you think Trivium is not metal then your just too old for their kind of Metal. I won't force you to like them, if you don't want to find but, the things you about them is not true, like " there not metal" or "posers" or that messed up word 14 years olds use " mallcore
Other bands rather than trivium

Tirivum is one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Anybody who thinks that they are overrated is a complete douschebag who really needs to learn something about music. Corey and Matt K. are some of the best guitarists today. Anybody who criticizes them for playing blink 182 or playing something considered non-metal is a complete shit faced cockmaster who has no idea what music is really about. Having fun and expressing yourself. Not a single band today has more fun than Trivium and their work ethic is increddibly high.

Other good bands:
Children of Bodom
Killswitch Engage
As I Lay Dying
In Flames
Dillinger Escape Plan
Shadows Fall
The Autumn Offering
Everytime I Die

Ascendancy era (2005-2006)
The unquestionable truth about Trivium based on the "Ascendancy" album.

*They're a generic metalcore band that the media and their record label consider to be the greatest metal band since Metallica.

*They're trying to be the next Metallica, all the while ripping off Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage and In Flames.

*They may have talent, but they don't really sound any better than any other metalcore band.

*Their fans believe they are the greatest band ever and don't mind rubbing it in everyone elses face.

*The singing is emo, accept it.

*The guitars are a poor attempt at sounding KsE/Gothenburg

*They have a metrosexual/fashioncore image, similar to Avenged Sevenfold and Eighteen Visions.

*If they were older and on a different label, no one would care about them.

*When made aware of our site, their bass player set up a myspace account bashing it.

*When a Christian Trivium hater posted a link to our page in the bass players blog, he responded with a message where he claimed Jesus "sucked more cock than he did"

The Crusade era (2006 onwards)
The unquestionable truth about Trivium based on "The Crusade" album.

*They replaced the screaming with James Hetfield wannabe vocals.

*The singing is still emo.

*They're crossing over their token emo/metalcore sound with an 80's hair metal sound.

*They traded their emo look for an 80's thrash look. (would've been cool 20 years ago)

*They fail to realise the year we are currently living in is 2006 and not 1986.

*Their ego's are bigger.

*They changed their sound, but they still have no originality.

*Fact it, they're still not a real metal band!
Speed metal fags such as Dragondick (Dragonforce) and Shitium (Trivium) smoke more dick than Jenna Jameson!

A once good speed metal band which sold out and now plays music copied by popular metal artists such as metallica. They are talented but care more about the money than the music they make.
friend 1 "Did you go to that concert out in Columbus?"
friend 2 "You realize Trivium was playing right?"
friend 1 "Damn! I'm lucky I didn't waste my money on a ticket!"
