Hailing from Orlando, Florida, Trivium is an American heavy metal band. Formed in 2000, five years later, they got signed to Roadrunner Records. As of today, Trivium has released seven studio albums and nineteen singles. They have managed to sell over one million albums worldwide.
Trivium catapulted into the first ranks of modern metal with 2005’s Roadrunner debut, ‘Ascendancy’, which was named “Album of the Year” by Kerrang!, amongst others. 2006’s ‘The Crusade’ incorporated new melodic colors into the band’s sound, bringing widespread critical acclaim and a top 25 Billboard 200 debut. ‘Shogun’ followed two years later, landing 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 top 15 debut on the overall Billboard 200.
Last album ‘Vengeance Falls’ made a stunning worldwide impact in 2013, arriving at #2 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart and #15 on the overall Billboard 200 – Trivium’s second consecutive top 15 debut. The album also made a #2 chart debut in Japan, top 10 debuts in Australia, Germany, and Austria, a top 15 debut in Canada, and a top 25 debut in the UK, all representing the band’s highest international chart debuts to date.
The winners of Metal Hammer’s 2006 “Golden Gods Award” as “Best Live Band,” Trivium have won over countless metal and hard rock loyalists through near non-stop touring, traveling the planet as headliners, special guests (alongside the likes of Iron Maiden, Slipknot, and Machine Head), and upper-bill stars at such legendary festival and festival tours as Download, Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Soundwave, Family Values, and Ozzfest.
At the Polish Woodstock, the band will focus on the songs from their blistering latest album, “Silence in the Snow”, which was released on October 2, 2015. The genesis of the record and its title track harks back to a 2007 tour supporting Heaven and Hell in Japan. “When I watched them live, it was something that really spoke to me, especially the song ‘Heaven and Hell’,” recalls frontman Matt Heafy. “I’d never heard metal summarized so well like that. Afterwards, I came up with ‘Silence in the Snow.’ We loved the song, but it just didn’t fit with the music we were making at the time. The reason was, perhaps, we weren’t ready for it. We foreshadowed our destiny back then, and we’ve finally grown into the song. It required massive musical growth, and we’re ready now.”
