The Top Ten

Pull Harder On the Strings of Your Martyr
PULL! HARDER! STRINGS! MARTYR! It's a song that you actually want yelled in your ears. Down From The Sky and Dying In Your Arms come very close but this song just takes the cake.
SHOUTING SING-A-LONG GROWLY PRE-CHORUS and a catchy chorus to boot. Great musicians all. Best song they've ever done.
Awesome song! Trivium's astounding musicianship is most certainly on show in this song, kick-ass riffs mind-blowing solos and ridiculous drums are just some of the reasons which make this magnificent song the best in a catalog of magnificent songs.
[Newest]Best metal song. Period.

2In Waves
IT IS THE BEST! Is something different and unique... just cause its new doesn't mean its not as good as the old stuff
Absolutely incredible. Definitely my favorite song by them ever. It's quite heavy and even has a pretty unique and original music video to go along with it. The atmosphere is much darker than any release they have ever done and is just a major headbanger!
Respect this song so much more after learning that this is about the tsunami that had hit Japan. One of the best tribute songs I have heard in a long time
[Newest]Until I heard this song my favorite was by far Throes of Perdition. As much as I love Throes of Perdition, this one blows it away.

3Like Light to the Flies
Definitive song of trivium. Great combination metal hardcore and trash with memerable solo. Dying in your arms is their worst song beceause it doesn't represent them at all. Just a poppy rock song isn't trivium.
the song makes my head spin like no other song in the world! a lot better than dying in your arms actually I would put dying in your arms under my top 10. it's just not the ultimate work of the amazing band trivium
Song is slowly creeping to number 1. Everyone has to vote for it.. It's not only my favorite trivium song, but my favorite song period. don't know how they made such a solid album, but I'm thankful.
[Newest]Been listening to this song since I was bloody 8

4Down From the Sky
The opening is killer! This song is very complete it is easily one of their better songs.
this song is peiced together awesomely and gets you head banging
This is probably the best song... But what about ascendancy? Have you heard the last part of the song? That riff over that ridiculous double-bass is insane...
[Newest]Best song by far, has a lot of power

5Dying In Your Arms
This song should be number one for sure. It is the best mix of hardcore sound and amazing vocals by Matt Heafy. You can feel the emotion in this song.
Its an awesome song, I heard it when I was a kid, now listening to it as an adult, and I get goosebumps, if I had a choice of having nonstop sex for the rest of my life, or listen to this song by trivium, I would choose this song.
The best metalcore song... A legendary trivium song... The guitars and solo is just too good
[Newest]First song I heard by then almost 10years ago, haven't stopped listening since

Although not as well known as some of their shorter songs, this is EPIC and it's no. 1 IMO.


Best Trivium song ever! Nothing isn't even near to compare this Masterpiece! Never!
Shogun is the best song ever. The whole song is just great and the lyrics are so awesome, its really, really awesome! This song for me is much better than most of iron maiden and metallica songs. It should be much higher than num. 7... TRIVIUM ALL THE WAY!
[Newest]This isn't a list of "Favorite" Trivium songs, it's a list for "Best" Trivium song... and this song clearly takes the cake.

7Throes of Perdition
The intro to this song is ridiculously catchy. After my 100th listen I still can't help from headbanging throughout the entire thing.
[Newest]I've listen to this a hundred time and still cool

8A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation
Crazy guitar solo, and an amazing composition.
Miles better than dying in your arms.
Amazing solo.. For me this is their second best song (after DOWN FROM THE SKY) And it is much better than Dying In your Arms
Best song by far. From start to finish this song is pure gold. The solos and that guitar harmony are just utterly unlike anything else trivium has ever done in their songs before or after.
[Newest]A piece of art truth with the epic solo

9Into the Mouth of Hell We March
You hear it and you like it! No doubt this is a great song of them, deserve to be in top ten. Come on guys, vote for this outrage pumping song! VOTE!
The song has sickest heavy metal guitar riffs I have ever head in my entire life. It also a very brutal guitar solo. When listening to this song it feels as though the world is covered in flames.This is not only my favorite trivium song but also my favorite song in the heavy metal genre. A true masterpiece
Great song that completely to went to my heart. Yep great guitar playing and great composition guys. This should be in number 1. But no problem. Because it will take place itself.

10Built to Fall
The perfect mix for a song, this is the single of this album.
The chorus is one of the best of Trivium, and it contagious the power of the group.
Is the one of the best song
I don't know how many times I've listened tis one...


The Contenders

ITs The best of trivium...
how could you people forget this one :O >_<
How the hell did this song is at the end of the list? It's their best!
I love the chorus of this song.

12Kirisute Gomen
One of the heaviest songs ever, especially the fast picking parts with the seven string. Ties with "down" as best from shogun
This song is really memorable. It's just the best mix of screaming and clear vocal by Matt Heafy
Should replace dying in your arms in the top ten for sure, this is a masterpiece.
[Newest]This song should be way higher! I would say top 5.

Strife is my favourite one. It deserves to be higher. Just give it a try!
#33? Are you serious?
It's my second favorite one!
[Newest]Should be in the top ten

14Ember to Inferno
How the hell is this all the way down here?! This song is the spark of the entire first album! From Ember To Inferno! Trivium has risen and evolved since! This is top ten material in my opinion.
Absolutely amazing song, should at least be middle of the top ten but because its from their debut album people don't know it as well.
Old song but the epic one
[Newest]Amazing song, definitely worthy of the top 5!

Best metal ever!
Must listen...
Great guitar
Give it a try... You will love it
Awsomest awesome
Awesome! I wake up to this song every day! Gets me up every time. YEAH!

16Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis
This song just gets heavier and heavier as the song goes on! Talk about a massive climax! When you see this song live and matt and corey are sharing vocals it just kicks ass! This song should not be 17th what a joke! My other favorite song "He who spawns the furies" Is currently 36 what?
That intro is sensational, and the bass solos in the middle are pretty cool. Also having a catchy chorus, this song has all the elements of a top 10 Trivium song. Spot 15 is far too low!
Absolutely amazing, as I was left in awe after listening. This song will definitely leave you hungry for more Trivium!
[Newest]That killer opening gets to me every time, every hair is standing when I'm blasting this song!

17Becoming the Dragon
This song is just enourmous. It starts off like a surge of dragon fire and ends like the most powerful dragon roar the universe has ever witnessed. The thrashy verses, the heavy chorus and the absolutely bone-crushing bridge along with the thunderous bass solo at the end makes it such an amazing piece of METAL that it deserves without doubt #1 spot on the list.

18Anthem (We Are the Fire)
Number 18 this song should be in the top 10, because when I listen to trivium I always seem to say (we are the fire). It is the number 1 song by trivium

19Of Prometheus and the Crucifix
Original, well designed song. Will definitely be listening to this one for tens of years to come
The Drum Fill, and The Actual riff OMG TRIVIUM ROCK and this song is them all over


Really? 36? You people can do a lot better than that! Black is the best. By far the best!


Most Underrated Trivium song, Awesome riff, Awesome Lyrics, Awesome Vocals.
Come on?! 78!? What the hell guys?
[Newest]78?! Words cannot explain

21Suffocating Sight
Underrated. The screams toward the solo is chilling and epic. Should be at least top 10.
Amazing Breakdown, Totally metalcore, way better than Dying in your arms. This should be in top 3.
This is just a brilliant song, the speed and power of the screaming is tremendous!

22Drowned and Torn Asunder
Very meaningful song. True masterpiece! It has insane riffs in the intro that just makes me wanna break something! Trivium all in all is the best however, this is on my top 5 at least from them.
This song is very epic from the intro to the end of the song

23Shattering The Skies Above
No one thaught this song would be so good because it was the first song with Nick instead of Travis, even I was worried. That all changed when the song really kicked in. It is by far their best song. And I think the reason that it's all the way down here is because people haven't warmed to Nick yet.
Best trivium and metalcore song of all time nothing compares to it awesome riffs, drum solo, and guitar solo also the clip is very nice
First song without Travis and it really kicked so much ass that no one saw coming.
[Newest]Give it a listen. I guarantee you will be blown beyond belief. And then you'll wonder what in god's name this song is doing here

24Forsake Not the Dream
ARE YOU F** KIDDINg ME THIS SONG IS BRILLIANT.. IT SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 5 FOR SURE. Vote for this song. Listen to the songs before voting :-/
This song deserves to be higher in the list - at least in the top 15. Keep voting people and forsake not the dream people!

25The Crusade

One of the best instrumental song ever made.

26The Deceived
This is one of the best songs of trivium... Awesome intro, stupendous chorus, mind blowing breakdown and the solo will literally give you goose bumps... The best...
This song has one of the best Chorus' Of the whole album

27Dusk Dismantled
Needs to be higher, because it's a great song
I don't think this song is one of triviums best songs, but very underrated though!

28Through Blood and Dirt and Bone

29Entrance of the Conflagration

It's such an amazing song and means so much to me and my big brother

32To Burn the Eye

33He Who Spawned the Furies

The most epic song ever!


35Of All These Yesterdays
this is really a great songs and best lyrics in trivium, and this is the songs of albums <<in waves>> I think that should be in top 5 not in top 30, we are too far gone...
This song always brings tears to my eyes, so many memories! This is definitely top 10 material. Vote this up people!
This not fair for this song in 48th rank. This song is different one and nice one.

36The Calamity

37Brave This Storm
New song with nice intro...
Just listen the second solo
First song on concert

38Tread the Floods
I love this song, its got such a great rhythm to it and the lyrics always get me pumped up. This is one of the songs we blast in the locker room before football games.

39As I Am Exploding
Really good song, deserves to be way higher. Enough said

40When All Light Dies
This song is amazing... The outro gives me goosebumps every single time... This is the reason that trivium are the only metalcore band I like.
That ending is a masterpiece.

41Watch the World Burn
Awesome riff! An quite a good balance between screaming and singing. I recommend this song! This definitely needs to be higher on the list.
THIS SONGS NEEDS TO BE HIGHER! The chorus is perfect, and the guitar solo is so AWESOME! 00
One of my favourite songs.

42Caustic Are the Ties That Bind
I just don't understand its not in the top 10 or even in top 15 or 20... This is the best song of the new record and got everything... Great lyrics, great breakdown etc.
Amazing Riffs and great solo! Come on people listen to this song.
This song deserves to get in top 10. No doubt about it
[Newest]The guitar in this song is just so melodic and the harmonies are beautiful.


44Chaos Reigns

45To the Rats
Best Trivium song, amazing riffs, solos, vocals... Everything's perfect! The crusade is, by far, their best album ever!

The very first metal song I loved as a small kid and I still love this song. A masterpiece
Come on guys, this song has an amazing riff to it!
And the chorus is just majestic

47Like Callisto to a Star In Heaven
This song does such a great job at making the listeners live the tragedy behind Callisto's myth. Amazing and heavy riffs.
One of their underrated but very good song!

48Master of Puppets
This song is conceded best metal song... Metallica is my favourite and and I love this song... When I herd this cover from trivium I was in sock... They really have done a good job.. This song is great... Metallica and trivium both bands are awesome... Love these both bands...

49Vengeance Falls
The title track to there best album and although it not the best one the album it deserves some respect!


The best song on The Crusade by far, yet it gets behind Ignition and Unrepentant, which are not only the worst on the crusade, but among the worst songs Trivium has put out. (not bad songs just towards the bottom of the barrel in my personal opinion)

Detonation slays. The opening riff is a mosh pit waiting to happen, the middle section and solo is Trivium at its finest, and the ending is one of the catchiest and most melodic things Trivium has to offer.
I don't understand why this is so low. If this song had screaming (which it does in the more recent live versions) it would be just like a song from Ascendancy! Fast, heavy, melodic, catchy, just overall an awesome song!
Best Thrash Trivium song undoubtedly!

51Falling to Grey
One of the greatest I have heard. The lyrics, the guitar, and the voice. One of my best songs
The intro to this song is really cool. Check it out and please vote up..

This is all time favourite Trivium song, it's so good and deserves a higher spot
Listen to this then you'll know...
It should be up on the list, still can believe it, it's a very rhytmic song just awesome

53Inception of the End
Brilliant. Heavy guitars, Metal Riffs, Amazing screams, Harmonic Solo, Great Vocals. One of my favorites of all time.
Great song, should be a lot higher up.

54If I Could Collapse The Masses

55Wake (The End Is Nigh)
"With my hands around your throat." Definitely in my top ten.
Such an amazing song

56A Skyline's Severance
HEAVY ASS SONG, definitely one of the best songs from In Waves.
Seriously? 51? This song must be number 2! The last 1:18 minutes of this song is enough to be in the second rank. Come on!
The heaviness will blow your mind. Easily one of my favourites, and perhaps Trivium's heaviest song. The only reason this song is 54th is that people haven't heard of it. Seriously, listen to it. You'll be glad you did.

57Pillars of Serpents

58Poison, the Knife or the Noose

59Upon the Shores
This is one of the best songs on the Shogun album!

60And Sadness Will Sear

61The Rising
How is not in the top 15 its such a great song should be way high on the list the guitar solos are just awesome yeah they may not hae as much screaming as their greater songs but that's what makes it unique
It is very great song. I am not the best trivium listener but this must be at least top ten

62At the End of This War
The best song on the Strife album and among my top 5 Trivium songs at the moment.
Why is this song so low on the list I think its amazing one of my favorites

63A Grey So Dark

64No Way to Heal
What a monster of a track - brilliant guitar-work, insane bridge, and one of the best choruses Trivium has made. Way better than more than half of the tracks above it. Real pity
This is an awesome song doesn't deserve to be this low on the chart

65Incineration: The Broken World
Best song off Vengeance Falls
Amazing solo and the bass solo is brilliant

66Skulls... We Are 138

67Blinding Tears Will Break the Skies

68Villainy Thrives
My favourite song from vengeance falls
Maby not in the top ten but certainly top 15 or 20


69Fugue (A Revelation)

70Washing Me Away In the Tides

71Iron Maiden

72The End of Everything

73To Believe
A very decent song. Not my personal favorite, but among the good songs from the album.
Easily one of Trivium's better songs! Deserves to be way higher. Top 20 at least. This is a real masterpiece.
First song I heard from them, and it's AWESOME!

74My Hatred

75Broken One

76Contempt Breeds Contamination

77Drowning In Slow Motion

78Slave New World

79No Hope for the Human Race
The fact that this song is so low along with the other songs form vengeance falls shows that there really is no hope for the human race (at the time of my writing this, this song is at 79)


Why is not even here?
