MusicReview: Shogun featured several mythological themes. Is the new album going to be a continuation of this?
Matt Heafy: Shogun‘s mythological themes were something that felt called for by the music. Every CD has been so different with its lyrical inspiration that this next album will definitely be its own thing. So, it won’t be carrying the mythological feel of Shogun.
MusicReview: Musically, what can we expect? Is it a combination of everything Trivium has already done?
Matt Heafy: It’s tricky to describe. We want it to be that this next album just sounds like “Trivium”. We may have – probably have – said that every record’s goal is that, and it has been, but this time it’s without question. There have always been experimental songs, since Ascendancy, on our albums, and this time the CD will only have what it is meant to have.
2010 marks the 30th anniversary of Roadrunner Records, and as we close out the year in celebration, we're looking back on the last three decades with a little help from our friends.
Founded in 1980 in Holland to export albums from the US to Europe, it wasn't until 1986 that Roadrunner opened a New York office and began to release burgeoning bands stateside (see: King Diamond, Carnivore and Whiplash as some of the first signings). Following on from Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy's Max Cavalera, Machine Head's Phil Demmel, Slipknot/ Murderdolls' Joey Jordison, Killswitch Engage's Mike D'Antonio, Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt, and former Coal Chamber/ current DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara, we're now turning it over to Trivium frontman Matt Heafy to help us recount the past by answering some quick questions survey-style.
