The German branch of Roadrunner Records has posted the tenth clip (see below) in an 11-part video series featuring TRIVIUM guitarists Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu of the Florida-based metal band TRIVIUM playing riffs from each of the songs on the band's forthcoming album, "Shogun".
Corey Beaulieu and TRIVIUM bassist Paolo Gregoletto were IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson's guests last night (Friday, September 26) during Bruce's weekly BBC 6 Music radio program, dubbed "The Bruce Dickinson Friday Rock Show". The program is now available for streaming at BBC.co.uk.
Beaulieu and Gregoletto recently offered a track-by-track breakdown of "Shogun", while on a promotional trip at the UK office of their record label, Roadrunner Records. Watch the video at this location.
"Shogun" is scheduled for release in North America on September 30 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was mixed in London by Colin Richardson (SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, NAPALM DEATH),with Jeff Rose and Martin "Ginge" Ford assisting on engineering duties.
For "Shogun", TRIVIUM chose not to record in the familiar environs of their home state of Florida. Instead the band headed to Nashville, Tennessee to work with producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, STONE SOUR). The result is a monolithic album that crystallizes the band's sound and showcases TRIVIUM's finest elements. Vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy is thrilled with the album, saying, "We made a cohesive, epic metal album that combines all of the ingredients of everything we feel we have ever done 'right' musically, while adding a new direction that the music called for. We had so much fun creating this album and hope our fans feel that energy when they listen."
