Did Chris Adler of Lamb of God play drums on the current Slipknot album?
Trivium one of my few go to metal bands. Started out doing death metal vocals, then on the 3rd album tried to replicate their hero’s in Metallica by doing clean vocals. I don’t think all of the fans liked that? They went to a totally different style of lead vocals on the 4th album. Band formed in 2000 and just released their 6th album in October of 2013.
From the 2003 release “Ember to Inferno” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arpmAH8E_M8
From 2006 “Ascendancy” my preferred album of theirs.
“The Crusade” released 2006
“Shogun” released 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EApnhO2OIrw
“In Waves” released 2011 No it’s not death metal vocals all of the way through
“Vengeance Falls” 1st album of theirs I got from iTunes. Released in October 2013
I’ve seen these guys 3 times, the first 2 times there were technical difficulties. 3rd time’s a charm though saw them in Saskatoon just before the release of this album “Vengeance Falls”.
