    Q&A with Paolo - Transport: Apogee’s Music & Recording Blog

    Since 2004, Paolo Gregoletto has carved a name for himself as not only the bassist in international metal band Trivium, but as one of its main songwriters and composers. After four studio album releases and worldwide tours, performing at major music festivals like Ozzfest and the Download Festival, Paolo and his bandmates (Matt Heafy, Corey Beaulieu and Nick Augusto) have learned to maximize their respective mobile rigs to work in any situation, whether they are on the road, in a hotel room, or back at home. Apogee talks to Paolo about how ONE allows him “to experiment recording demos with ease, anywhere and at anytime.”

i cant help feeling that this is more about the Apogee (advertising it) than about the band or paolo lol
if you can remember the scene in 'waynes world' where he keeps advertising different products as he is speaking lmao '..... All we need now ,is Paolo or the other guys, holding up the different products to the camera and giving a really cheesy smile as if there is no better product on earth...And it would be perfect lololol . lol sorry guys i couldnt get 'wayne campbell sponsorship' image from the film outta my head. its made me giggle xx[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqv3sUzPg2A]Waynes world clip[/url]

I think this song is awesome and vindicates the evolution and progression of an already masterful band. Shogun was a masterpiece, at least for me, because it was the first album where I could say this is the Trivium sound. I believe that through Shogun Trivium found its unique identity and sound as a band. Although I am not in the band so I could be way off the actual truth. But, more to my focal point, I implore to you guys to stay true to yourselves on this next album. With the acquisition of a new drummer who has the abilities to play a faster, harder style you may be tempted to speed up every song with blast beats and insane tapping. I only ask that this is not done to the point of distraction from the Trivium sound we have all come to love. Do not become a Divine Heresy or Fear Factory with their machine gun drums. Nothing against those bands, I like them too, but they are not Trivium. As Trivium moves forward to write their own legacy I just ask you stay creative and stay metal. You have up to this point so I am not worried. I just have seen too many times when a band gets a new member their style changes. I look forward to listening to the next link in the chain that is Trivium. Stay metal,
Your biggest fan

@The_Truth: i like the stuff youve said about the guys and their music n sound. Athough i agree with you that they are indeed an awesome metal band, my favorite band also.
I think they are still searching for the sound they want, but they are content with what they have right now.
I wonder too, if they have a specific sound they want for themselves as individuals too, not just as a band as a whole. It must be tough at times to combine the individual style they want to use and explore as well as that of the fantastic band that they are :) They have an awesome way of relating to each other, listening to each other and involving each other, thats one of the reasons i admire them. They seem to be great guys individually as well as collectively as Trivium x
