Best Trivium Songs

The Top Ten

1 Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr Cover Art

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.

Great song, I have no idea what Dying in your Arms is doing at the top, top should definitely be Pull Harder on the Strings of your Martyr, Shogun, Down from the Sky or Throes of Perdition. And where is Ascendancy!

2 Shogun Shogun Cover Art

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

Shogun is interesting. All other 10 songs on the record might have you checking to see how much time is left, giving the feeling that some drag on for too long. Shogun is nearly twice the length of the others and yet it flows so perfectly that not once do you feel it drags on. For an 11 and a half minute song, that's pretty impressive. It just builds and builds. A great example of catchy chorus that rivals all of their either catchier songs, an immense second movement complete with a bluesy country styled solo, and a fantastic build up into some of the most epic thrash soloing the band has pulled off. This is the band's crowning gem, and definitely a career highlight

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!

3 In Waves In Waves Cover Art

IT IS THE BEST! Is something different and unique... just cause its new doesn't mean its not as good as the old stuff

Yes, but it isn't as good as their old stuff, should be lower, my opinion - Fakol

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

This song is just amazing hardcore riff! Cathy chorus! What do you want nmore caude when listening to this song headbanging to the core!

4 Like Light to the Flies Like Light to the Flies Cover Art

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.

The riffs are great in this song. The solos aren't super crazy--they're more melodic. It's one of my favorite trivium songs and its one of my favorite solos by them.

5 Down from the Sky Down from the Sky Cover Art

deserved recognition. one of the best ever made of trivium. My favorite after Shogun

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

WHY is this below In Waves!?!?!? That right there lets me know that this list is being dominated by people who are new to Trivium who haven't even heard anything else. This song is Trivium's masterpiece. Far better than In Waves. This song has some of Trivium's best guitar work, lyrics, vocals, and represents what's Trivium is all about. Into the Mouth of Hell We March and Throes of Perdition should be higher as well. A joke that this isn't number one. Actually listen to their Shogun album before you even think about voting for anything else.

6 Throes of Perdition Throes of Perdition Cover Art


The intro to this song is ridiculously catchy. After my 100th listen I still can't help from headbanging throughout the entire thing.

Mint headbang riff and the instrumentals are just epic

Listen to this song.. Before you could ever think it isn't the best.. Love the epic riffs and the part where Matt's vocals go clean... I love this song.. Best song of shogun and so far trivium's best song ever made.

7 The Sin and the Sentence The Sin and the Sentence Cover Art

First time I listened to it I was like what, this wasn't like previous albums (holy crap those drums). Listened again, holy crap that was really good. Third time in a row listened to it and thought this was probably the best I have ever heard from these guys. Talk about brutal lyrics, smash your head against something chorus, no riff (and there are many) got boring, every aspect of Trivium that I ever loved just got mashed into one song. Not to mention Matt's extensive vocabulary again showing. F'ing WOW

The guitar and vocal harmony is basically a steroid-loaded orgasm.

Return to amazing. Best drumming to date.

Absolute monster

8 Strife Strife Cover Art

Strife is my favourite one. It deserves to be higher. Just give it a try!

When they played this live, there was so much power and emotion, I'm glad I got to see them in concert, and am going to again. This is a masterpiece and deserves top 5 at least

#33? Are you serious?

Has to be my favorite song by then. The guitar work is incredible, it's a catchy song with good meaning behind it. They have many good songs on this level and this has to be one of the top five if not their best.

9 Into the Mouth of Hell We March Into the Mouth of Hell We March Cover Art

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.

It has one of my favorite riffs ever, and it's an easy song to get hooked on to. Also you can sing along so well with this song! S come on! The Earth will begin to open up, if this isn't no. 1 by the time I look at this again!

10 Dying in Your Arms Dying in Your Arms Cover Art

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

I agreed with the mate who says it's the best mix of hardcore sound and amazing vocals by Matt Heafy. I love the words of the song.

The Contenders

11 Kirisute Gomen Kirisute Gomen Cover Art

Very technical song. I love how Heafy incorporated his Japanese heritage into their music.

I never thought I'd like Trivium, I've heard a few of their songs and thought "meh, they're very talented but nahh". Never really cares for their stuff. Then I checked out Shogun... and the title track... this song... now I like Trivium.

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

12 A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation Cover Art

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.

Awesome solo not many good guitar solos in songs theses days... Blows dying in your arms out of the water

13 Built to Fall Built to Fall Cover Art

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...

I just love the feel of this song. Riffs are just perfect!

14 Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis Cover Art

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!

Well rounded best song by Trivium. Paolo's two bass solos are what makes this song that awesome.

15 Until the World Goes Cold Until the World Goes Cold Cover Art

This song is a masterpiece. A slow, chugging groove, with a hell of a consistent drum beat backing up the guitars. It isn't the fastest song in their catalogue, however, the lyrics are wonderful and the instruments build off one another.

Just an amazing song which will make you realize that metal bands can make a slow song which can beat all other singers songs.

Just what trivium was missing. A greatly vocalized song. Soft but well thought!

Love love love this song!

16 Ember 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

I listen to the album on repeat, let alone this song

17 Of Prometheus and the Crucifix Of Prometheus and the Crucifix Cover Art

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

Don't like "too-much" screaming songs in general, so this is the best trivium song for me. its technically the heaviest without being too harsh vocally


18 Ascendancy Ascendancy Cover Art

How the hell did this song is at the end of the list? It's their best!

I love the chorus of this song.

Just a pure banger, the solo is excellent


19 Drowned and Torn Asunder Drowned and Torn Asunder Cover Art

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.

Awesome switch in vocals giving great balance and sound to the song

This song is very epic from the intro to the end of the song

This song had one of the greatest Chorus from trivium.

20 Caustic are the Ties that Bind Caustic are the Ties that Bind Cover Art

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.

I truly believe this is the best song off of in waves and definitely in my top 5 Trivium songs, while not my favorite it definitely deserves to be higher on the list than it is. Every second of this song is fantastic

Amazing Riffs and great solo! Come on people listen to this song.

Their most underrated song of all-time. Definitely in my top five for their library. Maybe even top three. It has everything. Great vocal, riffs, killer quite guitar solo. Amazing song.

21 Entrance of the Conflagration Entrance of the Conflagration Cover Art

This needs to be higher! Way higher! This song is so thrash like and its amazing. The solos, the riffing, the vocals, everything is great

How is this song 34th? Its solos are amazing

Way underrated

How is this 27? the opening riff is a monster! and the hole song is an absolute thrasher!

22 The Revanchist

This one is so unique and melodic, it really stands out. My current favorite trivium song

23 Forsake Not the Dream Forsake Not the Dream Cover Art

This song deserves to be higher in the list - at least in the top 15. Keep voting people and forsake not the dream people!

Such an amazing song. Super melodic solos and a super melodic song in general. Very underrated song and wish they would play it live

What.! This song is suppose to be at number 1


24 Departure Departure Cover Art

What? This song is amazing, should be on top 10 at least

Fantastic guitar, should be higher!

Beautiful ass chorus

Very close to being up there with PHSM. One of my favorite metal songs
