Trivium have advice for Metallica

Trivium have some words of wisdom for Metallica. If I were Lars, I’d listen. These guys have obviously studied and reproduced Metallica‘s sound time and time again, so they know their shit.

I checked [Death Magnetic] out. It was better than ‘St. Anger.’ I think they did a really good job of getting back to what made them Metallica in the first place, and I just wish they would get someone like Colin [Richardson] or Andy Sneap to mix the shit out of those records. ‘Cause [‘Death Magnetic’] and the new Slayer album [‘World Painted Blood’], if they had the production quality of, say, the new Megadeth and Exodus albums, they’d be brutal as shit. I think there’s good songwriting, but if you [combine] cool songs with killer, modern production, it really adds to the listening experience…” said Corey Beaulieu (not pictured above)

Hopefully the production quality on the next [Metallica album] and they just deliver something that is sonically crushing like the ‘black’ album was; [that record] was ahead of its time as far as album production for a metal CD. So hopefully they do that.

Leaving jokes aside, they do have a point. Why make albums if you’re gonna make the sound like shit? Or lemme put it this way… Why go through all the trouble of recording music if you’re not go all the way and present them in perfect quality?

Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson and the waveforms of the new songs won’t look like fucking bricks.



Trivium are recreating

According to Blabbermouth, in a recent interview with Matt Heafy, the frontman reveals that glorified Metallica tribute act, Trivium, are allegedly “recreating everything” on their forthcoming album.

Yes Trivium, by “recreating” I assume you’ll once again be taking what superior bands have already created and will rehash it for the kids too young to notice. Another original concept by Trivium, hooray.

In the band’s defence, they actually claim that’s exactly what they’re not doing. I’ll believe it when I see it though.


Weak Recap: We’re bringing sexy back

Another week behind us, another week of total metal kickassery. “But hey Simo, this week hasn’t been that special really…” – I hear some of you saying, and to clarify, when I say kickassery, I mean the way we’ve covered everything. Hell, we could comment on funerals or people sleeping and make it sound interesting as hell.

Kids, prepare your tissues and toilet paper, Mark and I are taking a trip down the memory lane, and it’s going to be sexy.


Friday Top 10: Shitty sellout songs

This week’s Friday Top 10 is all about those ridiculous ‘sell out’ songs. You know the ones; you have a band that YOU love, it’s YOUR band, and then all of a sudden, they release some bullshit single and every fucker suddenly likes them. Or sometimes bands just like to “broaden their horizons” and “explore new territories” – Read dumb their shit down for the masses or follow the current trend.

Now, I’m not looking to get into a debate about the definition of “sell out” or discuss the pros and cons of bands taking different paths, this is just a bit of fun. So make the jump, and have a laugh at some of these ridiculous songs. Or don’t, I still don’t get paid at the end of the week regardless.


Trivial teaser

Remember back in the day when Trivium were a bunch of teenagers and were praised because of their skills? Aaah. I bet they wish they could go back in time, because back then at least they had that. Well, I never bought any of it in the first place, but for all of you who are still interested in them (raise your hands while I use my fingers to count you all), they’ve posted a teaser for their upcoming album.

Black and white? Check. Automatically pretentious because of the first thing I mentioned? Check. Working (?) titles for songs, including “Black” and “Grey?” Inception style check. A song called “Inception” amongst those titles? Check within a check. Metal? Oooops.
