Best Trivium Songs

The Top Ten
1 Shogun

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

Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr might be more popular according to the fan base, but this song is by far their best masterpiece. The musicianship in this song is stellar and might be my favorite from the band now! The James Hatfield type of vocals at the beginning with the melodic death metal vocals in the background at the beginning is a great introduction to the rest of the amazing 11 minute song. Then after the last bit of beautiful screaming, it fades off into a clean guitar part where Matt Heafy's voice is more mellow than I've ever heard in any other song, and the guitar in the background is so addicting with it's melodic harmonies. It then transitions to a beautiful blues solo and begins building up slowly until you hear the melodic screaming backing vocals kick in, and the song goes bar out of hell and explodes with a fast paced tempo and head banging vocals. Then the real solo comes which sounds impossible to play. The rest of the song unfolds from there, and this ...more

Should definitely be number 1. It's really starting to be extremelly popular with a lot of Trivium fans too. When they played it live for the first time I had a look on Facebook on a picture of the setlist that Paolo posted and just about every single comment was about how it's good that they finally played it live or that they want them to play it when they see them live.

Sure, Pull Harder is kinda godlike but Shogun is very obviously their best song from an artistic perspective. It may not be as catchy as Pull Harder and it is pretty long but it for sure is the song they put the most work and art in so I appreciate this song the most out of all their now 125 songs. Get this to number 1 already!

2 Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr

It's ridiculous that many songs today tend to "be better" than masterpieces like this one, I still don't understand why but if someone gets my message it's that we should listen to Trivium more often and not trash like Pop or Wannabe artists. ... Although if you ask me, in my opinion this is the best Trivium song because it has one of the best heavy guitar inputs and etc ...

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!

Trivium is my favorite band since 4 years without a doubt, but this song is really overrated. there are at least 3 more songs on the same album being as good if not even better. I guess pull harder had the advantage of having a music video, which boosted the fame of it a lot. like light to the flies, the deceived and rain are equally as strong, at least.

3 In Waves

The mesmerizing tone, the heavy drums, the really electric guitar, the innovative chords and other things, make "In Waves" the best Trivium song of all time! There is no doubt that it is a masterpiece that you never tire of listening to ... It is a container of great memories of what was once Heavy Metal at its best.

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

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.

4 Like Light to the Flies

This is the song that got me into trivium.. I love this song very much.. The combination of metal core and clean vocals is what made this song awesome and powerful inspiring lyrics... This is my top favourite song of them.. M/

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.

Never heard of this song before, and as a Trivium fan I am I'd like to add more but I just wanted to say how high this song has impressed me many times viewing also its perspective.

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.

5 Down from the Sky

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.

Down from the Sky is their best song. Just awesome. Shogun in general was their best album, it was truly epic with singing and lyrics that give you chills, great musicianship, and guitar work that was nothing short of legendary. This, Into the Mouth of Hell We March, Throes of Perdition, Pull Harder, Like Light to Flies, Becoming the Dragon, Kirisute Gomen, Anthem, Entrance to the Conflagration, In Waves, Shogun, Pillars of Serpents. Now that's a list. Probably not in order though.

A straight-up piece of art. The prechorus is unlike I've ever heard mixed with such chorus and verses. The vocals, the guitar especially, the drums of course cause it's Trivium, it's all perfect.

Really? Why am do I have to explain this as the best? All types of vocals, badass breakdown, large chorus, amazing prechorus, perfect intro. Everything lines up for Trivium with this one.

6 Throes of Perdition

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.

This is the song that got me into trivium and it will always be the best in my oppinion. Torn between scylla and charybdis is close but this beats it. It is a masterpiece by the best band ever. Trivium till death.

This song is beautiful vocally and instrumentally. This song almost couldn't have gotten any more perfect! I'd rank this personally in my top 3 it's so good

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

7 The Sin and the Sentence

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

Damn, this song is awesome. It's melodic and furious at times and the vocal work is really well-crafted, with great clean singing and voracious growls in the chorus from Heafy. The blast beats in this song heavily welcome Alex Bent into the band.

Hats off to Trivium. They've really become one of Heavy Metal's greatest modern bands.

Outstanding song and puts a mainstream-ish sound without breaking away from their well known heavy screaming. Beautiful song all together and might be in the top 10 in my opinion

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

8 Strife

Great song here. Amazing guitar work and this song is their 3rd most popular song on Spotify, so that is where I think it should be.

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.

This and about 2 more are the only songs I liked from Vengeance Falls. It just seems the whole album is filler and there's really nothing exciting about it.

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

9 Dying in Your Arms

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.

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.

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.

Perdana pasha bogor : the best song ever, because the great guitar and best drum... Make its song very cool and better than ascendancy. I love this song

10 Into the Mouth of Hell We March

This is my favorite Trivium song. The guitar riffs at the intro and interlude send chills down my spine and the guitar solo sounds like a battle between two samurai in the rain and lightning. When he starts singing "into the mouth of Hell we march" before the solo I get goosebumps every time. This is a legendary song. This song is to Trivium what Hallowed Be Thy Name is to Iron Maiden (it actually sounds kind of like that song in some parts and shares a similar structure). The lyrics are so moving, they really make you feel the power of nature as they are caught in the storm and are also so inspiring.

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

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!

I've never been quite so... SHOCKED, so AMAZED as when I heard this song for the first time. It was like a brick of awesomeness, thrown at my face of ignorance. Great song. It's worth listening to.

The Contenders
11 Kirisute Gomen

I honestly don't know why this isn't in the top 3; the musical styles exhibited in this song are various yet masterfully entertwined. From the the thrashy main verses, to the melodic chorus, and from the acoustic--or at least very light, compared to the rest of the song--first few notes, to the final repeat of the chorus after the song seemingly ends, this one is a masterpiece well worth anyone's 6 and a half minutes

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.

Possibly the best album opener ever.
The intro acoustic melody on this song is the same melody as the chorus on "Shogun".

One of the heaviest songs ever, especially the fast picking parts with the seven string. Ties with "down" as best from shogun

12 Built 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.

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

I don't know how many times I've listened tis one...

The first Trivium song I learned on guitar. I absolutely love the riff

13 A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation

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.

Guitar solo, that's all the needs to be said. That and the sheer repressed anger that exudes from every verse. You can really feel the rage in this song!

Solo speaks for the song in this case and the chorus is awesome too.
Much better than Pull harder on the strings of your martyr.

Metalcore and thrash. Best of both worlds when I listen to this. Amazing solo and amazing song overall!

14 Torn 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!

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

15 Beyond Oblivion

This combines everything Trivium has done in their history of stellar songs. Hoping to see this make the top 10.

This song molds their old and new perfectly. This needs to be higher up the list!

Absolutely fantastic song. Possibly Trivium's best, then definitely Top 3.

This is top 10 for sure!

16 Ember to Inferno

Loads of other great songs but casting my vote for this one just because it deserves to be higher, one of their best period! And to think the dudes weren't even 20 when this was recorded...

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.

Amazing song, definitely worthy of the top 5!

17 Until the World Goes Cold

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!

My favorite song from my favorite album ever!

18 Drowned 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 had one of the greatest Chorus from trivium.

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

19 Of Prometheus and the Crucifix

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

Original, well designed song. Will definitely be listening to this one for tens of years to come

20 Ascendancy

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

I love the chorus of this song.

21 Caustic are the Ties that Bind

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

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.

Yeahh really don't understand how this song does not make it to the top ten spot!
The intro is a killer!
Awesome acoustic bridge!
And fantastic solo.
Come on guys, let's make this one rise to the top where it rightly lies. Trivium, /

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.

22 Entrance of the Conflagration

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

How is this song 34th? Its solos are amazing

23 The Revanchist

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

24 Departure

Fantastic guitar, should be higher!

Beautiful ass chorus

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

25 Forsake Not the Dream

This song is a masterpiece from the first to the last second.
Great balance between furious riffs and guitar melodies, and a great job on the drums.

It should be in the top 10 of this list, and should also be indispensable in all the concerts of the band.

One of my favourite songs of Trivium..
Amazing riffs and solo... I really loved it...
U can try them on guitar..
Come on people... You gotta listen the song... Or you'll miss the great creation of Trivium..

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
