Trivium is a Metalcore band from Orlando, Florida. They formed in 2000 after the band's original singer saw Heafy perform The Offspring's "Self-Esteem" with a drummer at his high school talent show. Ascendancy, their debut with Roadrunner Records, peaked at #151 on the US Billboard 200 and at #4 on the US Top Heatseekers charts.
The band members chose the name Trivium, which is Latin for the intersection between the three schools of learning: grammar, rhetoric and logic, because they liked the way it implied an open-mindedness to different styles, and summed up their musical aesthetic. After a couple of gigs at parties, the original singer quit the band and Heafy took the wheel. For the next two years, the band honed its sound, and in 2002 Heafy won the Best Metal Guitarist Award at the Orlando Metal Awards. Trivium headed into the studio in the beginning of 2003 to record their first high-quality demo disc. From this, German label Lifeforce signed Trivium and sent the band into the studio to record Ember to Inferno.
After going through various lineups, the band finally found guitarist Corey Beaulieu, a dedicated death metal buff who brought a new influence to the ban...
