New Album Review
PITRIFF RATING – 9/10 - Had the band not taken a slight misstep with the emo-lyrics of “This World Can’t Tear Us Apart”, this record would have gotten a perfect score. That’s definitely a minor setback though on an otherwise raging album. Flaunting their old school roots and incorporating some of the better elements of modern metal, Trivium have created the album that I hope becomes the trendsetter for the next five years of metal. THE CRUSADE is an awesome release which should push the band out of the clubs and into the much bigger venues.
