4.0 out of 5 stars Trivium - In Waves August 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Trivium's fifth album In Waves is their first album with new drummer Nick Augusto, and their first to be produced by Colin Richardson. Nick's style of drumming fits the band well so there is no need to worry about Travis's absence. Additionally, the general standard of production is brilliant and even the quality of the lyrics has improved.

At first, I was a little worried that the album mightn't be all that good, as I wasn't too keen on the pre-released tracks like the more radio friendly `In Waves,' and `Built To Fall,' or the heavier, more mid-album type tracks `Dusk Dismantled,' and `Inception Of The End,' all of which were objectively good songs but all seemed to be missing something.

That many tracks should be indicative of the album's quality as a whole, so I didn't get my hopes up. They did all grow on me however, and definitely make even more sense within the context of the album as a whole, so if you weren't keen on those tracks either, don't let it put you off listening to the whole album.

As a general rule, the songs are shorter than they were on the previous album Shogun, and a little more straight-forward in terms of composition and structure but this is not necessarily true of every single track. The best way to describe In Waves would be a mixture of radio friendly songs and Ascendancy type songs; when you get right down to it, its another regular Trivium album. No grand departure really.

Every Trivium album so far has had some alteration to the style of the vocals, some harder, some softer and some mixed. In Waves could be described as more mixed, but with some additional styles not heard on a Trivium album before too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trivium's epic August 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are two types of Trivium records: where they try to be heavy, and where they try to be friendly. Ascendancy and Shogun (and Ember) were albums that tried to be heavy (and were pretty good), Crusade was more of a friendly album (which failed).

I would also call In Waves a more friendly, less heavy-striving record. But somehow this time they managed to nail it. IW may be remembered as the best record in their collection, because it will be extremely hard to top.

Trivium got loose, and in the process wrote some all-time epics. The title track is one that will bounce stadiums for a generation. Caustic Are The Ties That Bind has a metal chorus that you'll sing in your dreams.

The next tier of great tracks alone would have made this the best Trivium yet. Dusk Dismantled, Chaos Reigns, Inception of the End, all fantastic tracks, all totally heavy and unafraid.

The Special Edition even has 18 tracks and you won't skip over any of them. The band knows how to put together quality songs, period.

In Waves is the biggest and the best mainstream metal has to offer. The heaviness and song-writing are at a natural and optimum level. No top-tier band can match Trivium at this point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic Trivium album. August 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a bit surprised but some of the negative reviews. Its hard to imagine liking their previous work and not being really happy with this album as I am. The way it kicks in with In Waves is just straight bada$$.

A few reviewers mentioned not liking the song 'A Grey So Dark', one even calling it emo. Uhh...not so much. Slower and melodic, yes, emo it is not. A beautiful vocal melody in the chorus stood out to me on my first listen and continues to be a strong point in the album as far as I'm concerned. I guess they can't be everything to everyone but any Trivium fan should love this album. 'Watch the World Burn' is another one of my favorites along with 'Forsake not the dream'. The only song I don't really care for is Dusk Dismantled.

Also the idea that this is an attempt to sound more mainstream strikes me as totally absurd. This album is as heavy as anything they've done.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the album is 18 tracks, so with that many songs it takes longer to get to know the songs and appreciate the album more. I bought the special edition which is worth it in my opinion. I really enjoyed the DVD and its worth another 5 bucks, especially for people who like to take a look at the creative process of the album and get to know the band a bit more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album! June 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heavy riffs, fast guitar solos, blasting drumbeats, along with my favorite style of vocals for a metal band (the equal and complementary blend of the screamed and clean) ... I've listened to this album repeatedly and it just gets better every time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Shogun, but it is one of their best July 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The band wasn't trying to recreate Shogun. I mean, how could they? This in itself is a darn good album and is one of the best of that year in the metal genre. Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Shogun, but amazing notheless May 4, 2012
By Elliot
Format:Audio CD
In Waves is a fantastic album. A lot of people have dismissed it's being not as technical or heavy as Shogun. While this is partially true, as In Waves lacks the progressive thrash elements that Shogun had, this record is both more melodic and catchy, but also heavier in some places.

The first thing you must note is that you can't judge the album based on the title track. I personally love the song, but I can understand why it makes people nervous, with the plethora of metalcore-esque breakdowns and the radio-friendly song-structure, but the album as a whole is not a chugga-chugga radio-single fest as some would have you believe.

All that aside, let me get into the music itself. As I mentioned before, the progressive elements are significantly diminished, with fewer guitar solos and shorter songs, but the melodies are fantastic. Matt Heafy's singing has improved a lot since the early days and you can really hear it this time around. The screaming has also gotten a lot more dynamic, with more variety than any Trivium record to date. Metalcore screams of past endeavors are now supplemented by almost death metal sounding growls and it sounds fantastic.

Instrumentally, In Waves dominates. The new drummer Nick Augusto does a great job, and while his style is really a matter of personal taste, I feel like I must defend his technical ability. He delivers some great fills throughout and even includes a few blast beats. The guitars are great as always, with shorter more concise grooves than Shogun or the Crusade. There are less solos and lead fills, but they're still there, and they shred. There's a ton of variety too, ranging from more simple melodic grooves to brutal onslaughts in the heavier songs.

All in all, it's a great heavy metal album, and I definitely recommend picking it up.
