TRIVIUM - New Album Will Be “Heavier” Than ‘In Waves’2012-03-07
It looks like Trivium are already looking ahead to their next album, and if the band’s words are anything to go by, they’re cranking things up a notch when it comes to bringing the heavy. Which is nice.
“I think it’s going to be heavier,” bassist Paolo Gregoletto tells Aussie mag Loud. “We’ve been talking about it a lot, just a lot of stuff, like where we want to go with the next record. I think we’ve definitely learnt to write better on the road and we’re learning that writing with a more focused vision musically is the way to go. Not just all of us just writing as many songs as we can. I think we’re all trying to be conscious of how much we’re writing, what we’re writing and really just spending the time with a smaller batch of songs, rather than writing like 40 songs and kinda being all over the place musically. But it’s definitely I think going to be a heavier record.”
“I mean, the last record, we had so much time; we had like two years and we wrote an album over the course of two drummers, so it was like, when we started writing we were in a different headspace than when we actually recorded. So we had a lot of material, which was great. But I think now that things have smoothed out on the personal side of things for the band, I think we can focus solely on just the musical vision of what Trivium is and really have no, outside of the musical stuff we have nothing going on that’s kinda like drawing from that.”
Trivium’s current album ‘In Waves’ is out now via Roadrunner. We think it’s pretty good, too!
