Best Trivium Albums

The Top Ten
1 Shogun

The second to none and stellar riffs of Kirisute Gommen to the magnum opus of Shogun the final track. This album is goosebumps from start to finish. It's just an absolutely perfectly produced album with the tailored quality of the early Metallica, where you cannot just help but listen to the album straight through. Ride the, Master and... And Justice with a blend of modern core elements and influences. Regal vocals, brilliant vocals and musicianship. Ever since I first listened to this album I've been bragging about it to everyone who will listen. It has even broken up a relationship because I listened to it over her. I have listened to it several hundred times to date. I never listened to the Special Edition until Spotify. Even on there it's my favorite and most listened to album and music.

2 The Sin and the Sentence

Super good and different from their other albums. Keeping it fresh, f it was just a copy of ascendancy it wouldn't be great, but they kept it fresh and heavy it made this album great

Trivium's best album since Shogun.

Eight albums on, they're still improving. I'm sure they'll be revered as Metal legends in the next few years.

Of the 3 most recent albums which are fairly similar, and all extremely good, this one is my favorite.

3 Ascendancy

Unbelievable creativity, great riffs, memorable songs. It's more metalcore oriented, which, in my opinion, is a way to go for Trivium. Trash oriented albums never quite did it for me. Also, In Waves is such a great album because it was written in a similar manner as Ascendancy, in terms of ambient, creativity and energy.

Shogun was rated number 1? Ascendancy is a Metal Album for Legends. When this album came out metal gods that had been in the business for a long time would be hard pressed to release anything of this caliber! Don't get me Wrong Shogun is a great album but nowhere near the degree of Ascendancy.

4 In Waves

Every single song on this album is absolutely amazing. This album is basically shogun and ascendency combined into one, with both of the best parts. In my opinion there are no weak tracks at all, great solos, and the song structures are perfect. Silence in the Snow had nothing special, and Sin and the Sentence was great, but its weakness was the generic sounding solos. Vengeance falls basically just tried to be this album and failed for the most part, it doesn't match the pure musical genius that this album shows from beginning to end.

5 Vengeance Falls

Every song on this album is a work of metal art. It combines strong Gress of progressions and beautiful melodic leads that create A powerful instrumental unlike anything I've ever heard. To back it up the lyrics on this album are very well-thought-out and Matt Heafey clearly went all the way with his vocals. The guitar solos on this album are melodic, fast, accurate, and credibly intense. The two bonus tracks on this album are quite possibly the best bonus tracks that I ever entered my eardrums. Vengeance falls as my personal vote for the best album of 2013!

6 Silence In the Snow

Silence in the Snow is a departure from a lot of what was unique about the Trivium sound in the past, and for that it will never be a Trivium fan's favourite album. I personally love the direction that the band is going with their sound because I'm not too much of a fan of the growling/screaming in previous albums. Musically, it can probably be described as more mainstream.

I love the album and I think it's great, but it doesn't have the sound that Trivium had in the past.

'Silence In the Snow' might be my favorite album of all time. It's an absolute masterpiece. From the soft instrumental "Snøfall" to the outro of "The Darkness of My Mind", everything sounds on point. Matt Heafy's vocals are amazing, and while some people were disappointed by the lack of screaming, I personally love it. The title track is a song that I can listen to all day. The video is also really cool, aside from Matt Heafy's nose bleeding (that's just gross). The song is my second favorite on this album. "Blind Leading the Blind" has a great chorus, and is a phenomenal song. Too bad the video is disappointing. "Dead and Gone" has a pretty weird sounding intro, but is another great song. "The Ghost That's Haunting You" is my favorite on the album. Everything about it is perfect. "Pull Me From the Void" is severely underrated. The chorus is really catchy, and the verses are fantastic. "Until the World Goes Cold" is somewhat overrated, but is still an amazing song, and has a great music video. "Rise Above the Tides" has the best guitar solo that Trivium have ever done. That solo is incredible. The song is equally incredible, and is definitely my third favorite on the album. "The Thing That's Killing Me" has a not so great intro, but the rest of the song makes up for that. The solo is really good. The only major complaint that I have with the song is that Heafy says "set fire to the empire". That line is very cheesy. "Beneath the Sun" is probably my least favorite on the album, but that's just because the other songs are so amazing. That's not to say that the song isn't amazing, though. It's really great. The intro and chorus are fantastic, and really brighten the song. "Breathe In the Flames" is my fourth favorite on the album. The intro, outro, chorus, and everything is on point. The song is so underrated. "Cease All Your Fire" took a minute to grow on me, but now I love it. The chorus makes me happy. "The Darkness of My Mind" is a really great ballad. It's a... more

7 The Crusade

One of the most misunderstood albums in music history. Trivium rose to acclaim with Ascendancy and this was one of the most anticipated records of 2006. What does Trivium do? Create possibly the FARTHEST thing from Ascendancy on purpose, which turned most people off. Listen to Detonation, Becoming the Dragon, Entrance of the Conflagration, The Crusade, Tread The Floods, Anthem, this album really is better than most remember, and definitely deserves more attention.

I'm in love all of Trivium's albums; it all started with silence in the snow as soon as the title track was released, it was great. But this album had me hooked. Every chance I got I was replaying this album. The beautiful complexity of the instrumental, the speed of ignition, the classic sound of anthem, and the epic screams in becoming the dragon were contributors that put this in my top 10 favorite albums of all time.

8 Ember to Inferno

This album is grossly underrated due to its production quality, but if people looked beyond that and just appreciated the music itself, they'd see that Ember To Inferno is an amazing album.

It tears my eyes to see that Ember To Inferno is less appreciated then The Crusade. 'As this world comes to its grim end, blind pray to God to make them men, as all hopes crumble truth's unveiled, the world we know is an abysmal hell'

Well, My favorite album is Ascendancy or Shogun... But I have to vote for this one, this is their 3rd best album guys what, I mean listen to it and then come and vote for it :P

9 What the Dead Men Say

I wasn't expecting it to be as great as it is. It flows remarkably well from beginning to end without a single weak track. Every band showcases their full potential here. A new masterpiece:
1) Shogun
2) What The Dead Men Say
3) The Sin And The Sentence
4) In Waves
5) Ascendancy
*big quality gap*
6) Vengeance Falls
7) Silence In the Snow
8) The Crusade
9) Ember To Inferno

Straight fire, up there with Shogun and Ascendancy! Have trivium ever let us down?

Good stuff, has this aura like none of the other albums I've listened to from them.

10 In the Court of the Dragon

The ultimate beast right here. In their PRIME! I love Shogun and Ascendancy, but this newest album takes the cake for days.

Big return to form. If you prefer their early stuff, this is them trying to get back to it.

Easily the best. Not many records compare to this one.
