I am a huge Trivium fan and i have rocked out to every album. With that said, I think that "In Waves" is the best album Trivium has come out with so far. Shogun was the shit, but unfortunately is fell down a notch or two when " In Waves" came out. My Second favorite has to be "Ascendency". It is packed with bad ass guitar riffs, melodic voice changes and of course, awesome lyrics.
