Produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Slash, Alter Bridge, The Amity Affliction) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Lamb of God), Trivium’s seventh studio album, “SILENCE IN THE SNOW” stands as a long gestating creative milestone for the acclaimed band. The collection had its genesis moment back in 2007 and was directly influenced by the time Trivium spent touring alongside the legendary Heaven & Hell that year. Ultimately, it would take eight years before they felt equipped to tackle the challenging work of weaving their classic influences into a modern record. Fueled by the inspiration of true classic metal – spanning Black Sabbath and Rainbow, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Pantera and Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica – Trivium challenged themselves to attain similar levels of greatness, taking on vocal coaches and guitar lessons to further their creative evolution. The result is extraordinary, bridging the history of hard rock and metal while simultaneously powering it forward into the future on tracks like the epic “Blind Leading The Blind” and “Until The World Goes Cold.”
Hailed by Alternative Press as the “the purest metal of the year,” “SILENCE IN THE SNOW” made a stunning impact, arriving at #3 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart and #19 on the overall Billboard 200 marking Trivium’s third consecutive Top 20 debut.
Founded in 2000, Trivium catapulted into the first ranks of modern metal with 2004’s Roadrunner debut, “ASCENDANCY,” which was named “Album of the Year” by none other than Kerrang! 2006’s “THE CRUSADE” incorporated new melodic colors into the band’s sound, resulting in widespread critical applause and a top 25 Billboard 200 debut. “SHOGUN” followed two years later and received event greater acclaim and chart success, including a #1 debut on the UK’s Rock Albums Chart. “IN WAVES” hit #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” upon its 2011 release, not to mention a stunning top 15 debut on the overall Billboard 200.
