Trivium Pursuit at Mayhem Festival 2011
Trivium‘s Paolo Gregoletto may seem like one of metal’s most unassuming soldiers, but his quiet demeanor belies his ferocious onstage energy. With the band’s fifth album, In Waves due out on Roadrunner Records in less than a month (August 9th), fans are chomping at the bit to hear it and the band can’t wait to play it. In fact, they are already playing three tracks from the forth coming album at most Mayhem Festival dates.
Fans can buy a pre-order of the album with a band signed poster at the Mayhem Festival dates, so make sure you get out there and get yours.
Prior to the show I had a chance to spend a few minutes with Paolo discussing this year’s Mayhem Festival, In Waves and how the band has gone back to their earlier approach on this record, how new drummer Nick Augusto has impacted the band, and Paolo’s lack of body art. he also mentioned the band’s as yet unannounced tour with Dream Theater.
The band has offered up a new track from the forthcoming In Waves album. Fans got an exclusive first listen July 13th at HotTopic.com. You can listen to “Inception Of The End” below:
