TRIVIUM Done With 17 New Tracks For Upcoming Album

Trivium are currently scheduled to enter Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida on January 16 with the production/mixing team of Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Fear Factory) and Martin "Ginge" Ford to begin recording the follow-up to 2008's "Shogun."

Front man Matt Heafy recently left an update on twitter mentioning that, 17 tracks are written for the new album, which the band is aiming at releasing by late spring/early summer 2011 via Roadrunner Records.

In a recent interview with guitarist Cory Beaulieu with metal radio show Metal Mutilation; Cory talks about how the new material is shaping up, stating:
"We've been concentrating more on [making] more to-the-point, catchier songs without going off too much — there's no seven- or eight-minute songs on this one. There's a lot of really cool riffs and a lot of really cool parts, and, obviously, there's guitar solos all over the place. It doesn't sound like 'Shogun', but it sounds like TRIVIUM. It's a got a different feel than 'Shogun' — it's a lot more in your face and heavier and faster. It kind of balances out everything — we've got four or five songs that are all screaming, we've got a couple of songs that are all singing, and huge songs that are kind of a mix — kind of 'Acendancy' [2005] kind of vocal style, [with both] screaming and singing, so there's a good variety, which makes it really interesting to listen to, because each song has its own thing going on, so they all stand out really well and fit together, too. It's got a good balance of everything, but the energy and the intensity is just a lot more up there. I guess if you compare it to anything as far as being aggressive, it's probably more towards 'Ascendancy' than anything else."

Let's hope the new record keeps the "Ascendancy dial" way up.
