Ten Best Trivium Songs


The Top TenXW

1Pull 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.

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

In Waves is their best of best song! Better than Pull Harder! - Nimbusman

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.

This is why I love Trivium

4Throes 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.


Awesome intro, awesome song! Definitely top 5, maybe top 3.

Although not as well known as some of their shorter songs, this is EPIC and it's no. 1 IMO. - petrucci75hammet

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!

Have seen Trivium a number of times, never played this song, would die to hear this live...

6Down 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...

Best song and lyrics. Simply amazing

7Dying 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

First song I heard by then almost 10years ago, haven't stopped listening since

8Into 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.

Shogun is my favorite, but this needs to be higher. by the way Dying In Your Arms shouldn't be here. - Illuminati323

9A 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.

A piece of art truth with the epic solo

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... - Yunis

It is 3 minutes of epic

The Contenders

11Kirisute 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.

Excellent song! Among their best songs.

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.


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!

Definitely deserves to be higher

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

Amazing song, definitely worthy of the top 5!

15Torn 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!

That killer opening gets to me every time, every hair is standing when I'm blasting this song!

16Drowned 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

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.

18Caustic 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

The guitar in this song is just so melodic and the harmonies are beautiful.

19Through Blood and Dirt and Bone
20Suffocating 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!
