Killswitch Engage Singer Says Trivium Have “Balls” With New Material


The directional shifts Trivium have taken on recent albums have been met with criticism from a portion of their fans. Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach isn’t one of them however, and has taken to the internet to share his appreciation of the band branching out. Speaking of their latest track, “Until The World Goes Cold“, Leach offered the following via his Facebook:

“I truly love it when a band has the balls to do what they want and switch it up. Fans may not “get it” or want something similar to what they are used to. I grow tired of hearing people who want bands just to produce a copy of a record they love that was from years ago. As an artist it is healthy to take risks and push forward. This new Trivium song is so good. It is different, yes and has a hooky chorus for sure, but that is why I think it is good!

Also “Silence in the Snow” sounds like classic metal and Matt kills it on the vocals, both songs he sounds controlled and strong! Regardless of what genre you are die hard into or how “hard” you like music, this is good music and I salute Trivium, great group of dudes as well. So far so good my friends, well done & keeping “doing you.” There are enough “samey” bands out there playing it safe, nice to hear something new. To me this is Trivium finding their stride for a new chapter. I like what I have heard and knowing those guys, this is the type of album they set out to make. Cheers guys!”

Trivium vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy has been taking any criticisms in stride, in part with humor and sarcasm, such as the following:

The bands new album “Silence In The Snow” will be released October 02nd through Roadrunner.
