I have been wondering what the round, three symbol logo has any sort of meaning, or that it just looks cool? biggrin.gif
And who designed the logo, really?

I looked up some various Japanese symbols, and the Trivium one looks very simular to the drum the taiko. See this Google Image search: http://tinyurl.com/9uny899

That was actually what I was guessing, but thanks alot anyway :wink:

"Trivium, which is Latin for the intersection between the three schools of learning: grammar, rhetoric and logic, because they liked the way it implied an open-mindedness to different styles, and summed up their musical aesthetic"

But I just thought maybe ment something else smile.gif

Still wondering who designed it :?:

And thanks for the fishy stick! Smelled and tasted good biggrin.gif

It was just my interpretation of the logo because i saw one similar on the cover to Sepultura's Against album, I'm sorry that i stated my opinion next time I won't. I understood after reading the posts before mine that the symbol is related to the band's name TRI-vium, but I still thought that I might share my interpretation of the logo.

I'm sorry, I just hate when it's referred to as a 666 logo. We have had a few threads asking "why is Trivium satanic" and shit like that.

Pull Harder is so death metal... and Declaration is pure black metal.. RAWR

Wow! That a lot of explenations...
I believe it's something combined of many of these theory's, remember the Trivium guy's aren't stupid smile.gif
So I believe that the logo has a trinity meaning of some sort, with many of the meanings connected to name also biggrin.gif

Thanks people, good answers! biggrin.gif

The Tomoe one was really interresting.

But yes, I think the band has the only true answer smile.gif

The logo was created with a little help from Trivium's good friend and art director - Paul Romano.

- Justin

Twas a triple post followed by a triple post, I've cleaned them up. Please do not triple post.

trivium-krakaos's picture

it's funny to see that this thread is coming again and again....

Justin should tell us the truth because he's the Manager.
So P.Romano should had help the guys with that.

but the Story about it and the meaning should be interesting to know.

Fact is that Matt does have a relation with japan...

That's why my theory about the begining of that logo is :

Trivium members were 3 at the begining (so TRI-VIUM) hmmm.
lol no forget that...or perhaps not ?! well who know...

But this link will kick your ass and blow your eyes...
Perhaps the begin of a Legend about that fuckin logo haha...

that symbol is commonly used in japan ( Matt Heafy grew up in Tokyo ) but it's not a uniformed symbol many families used a different variation of it Trivium is no different theirs is a different variation of the tomoe symbol

yeah i love the six minute organ solo in pull harder its great and declaration clearly has a satanic chant in the middle of it.

grr sarcasm on the net sucks :roll:

sleeping_awake's picture

The cutouts in the circle are in the shape of 6's, three 6's = 666, also giving the logo a metal meaning

gavingifted's picture

the original singer came up with the name and when he left they kept the name

three symbol logo has any sort of meaning

This logo is also a religious symbol in "Bretagne" (I don't how you say in English) in France. It's called the Triskell. The three sides designed three divinity. It depends of the interpretation :
- the water, the earth, the fire
or
- the sky, the earth, the water
or
- Lug, Ogme and Dagda (three gods of the celtic religion)

there are other interpretations, but it's too hard to explains that in english.

I hope you've understand me, because explain the religion is kinda hard.

It's similar to the symbol on the cover to Sepultura's Against

trivium-wickerman's picture

Not sure who designed it, but it's pretty much a symbol for the meaning of the band. Every band needs a logo.

'trivium' is like some word from a few hundred years ago and its like the combining of 3 different things in education or something eg:learning languages,mathematics and science, I think.

the band all like different music so they bring together different styles and i think thats why they have that logo.

hoped i helped ;D

btw your new so have a fishy stick
