I saw TriViuM on the second leg of their US headliner tour in Chicago (AWESOME SHOW!!!!) and I've been waiting for the download to become available. It's been well over 7-10 days past the show and it's still not ready. Are they not offering the second leg shows because Travis wasn't playing with them?
To: TriviuM Today, just like every other day in my life, I find myself watching countless bootleg videos of TriviuM (one of my favorite bands of all time) playing live on YouTube. I see that a select few of the members actually capture the entire show! I also notice that almost all of these videos are from overseas shows. I see TriviuM break out classics off of Ember to rarely heard tracks off of Ascendency. While viewing these videos I think to myself, "Where are these kind of shows in the US?!" I've seen Trivium play live 6 times here in the states and they have all been absolutely fucking amazing. BUT, I can think of 2 shows where you have actually played more than 35 minutes. I live here in Chicago and I remember the good times when we literally broke the floor at the House of Blues during one of your shows or when I heard the first half of the Deceived. Now I have to drive to Fort Wayne, IN just to see you guys headline a show (FUCKING AWESOME SHOW BY THE WAY!). Then I read posts by Corey saying "If we don't hit your major city, be patient because we will be back." Well my patience paid off and I purchased my tickets to see you guys at the AllState Arena with Slipknot! But then my excitement quickly lowerd (just a little bit)when I found out that TriviuM is going to put on another typical US show which consists of a way to short 35 minute set opening up for another shitty band (in my opinion) such as Coheed or Evanesence. You guys definately deserve more than 35 minutes on stage and the US definately deserves it as well. I do understand the reasons why you only get that time (record sales, etc.) but when you have 4 kick ass albums under your belt and Kirk Hammett wearing one of your shirts on stage, I think you're more than ready to headline here and get the time on stage you get overseas. Besides, all of you are from the states as well! I know that I'm not going to be the most popluar Triviumworld.com member after this posting but I feel that US fans should get more TriviuM than what we have been getting over the years. I only say all this because you guys fucking rule and we can't get enough of you! See you next week!! \m/
