TRIVIUM: 'The Crusade' Details Revealed

On October 10, TRIVIUM will release its third album, "The Crusade". The follow-up to 2005's "Ascendancy" was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, FL, just outside of Orlando. Once again produced by TRIVIUM and Jason Suecof, the CD is "a dazzling explosion of tight, intricate and instantly memorable songs that feature awe-inspiring musicianship from all four members of the band," according to a press release.

Says lead singer Matt Heafy, "As a band, you can either release the same album again, keeping the same number of people interested and not really branch out, or you can evolve. I feel that 'The Crusade' is the next logical step in our evolution. We took one big step between the first two albums, but this time we've taken about ten huge leaps forward."

For the first time, other members of the group contributed songs to the album. Guitarist Corey Beaulieu wrote the music to "Unrepentant" and "Tread The Floods", while bassist Paolo Gregoletto wrote the music to "The Rising" and "To The Rats" and co-wrote "Anthem (We are the Fire)" with Heafy.

"The Crusade" will contain 13 songs, including "Detonation", which is available for download at this location, "And Sadness Will Sear", the initial focus track "Entrance of the Conflagration", and the nine-minute instrumental epic "The Crusade".

To date "Ascendancy" has sold 140,000 units in the Unites States and continues to sell over 1,600 a week.
