becoming the dragon and.... hm
im gonna say Ignition, and To The Rats.
thats all off of their new cd, the crusade. personally i think its the better of the two.
ascendancy is pretty good too, but its just so completely different than the crusade.
and yeah trivium has caught alotta flak over their popularity.
so has slipknot, and korn, and marylon manson (tho i really dont like him, nor korn).
its just the way that things go.
people are so biased that even if something is good, they will say its bad only because its new. and people want to be different so they say what ever is popular sucks (although most of it does. WHAT THE HELL IS A "DAUGHTRY?!"). so when ever a good band comes out of the woodworks, and puts together solid albums, tours their asses off, and finds themselves in the seat of popularity in a few years then theres just some people that will never take them seriously.
trivium is a gr8 band, ascendancy was their coming of age record and now the crusade is their polisher.
if you have never listened to trivium, go to their myspace and give it a listen. (and dont just say that their a metallica rip off, cuz nile sounds like cannibal corpse but their both gr8)
