Trivium has released a music video for the title track from their upcoming album, Silence In The Snow, which will come out on October 2nd on Roadrunner Records. It’s one of the more melodic songs the band has written, and should appeal to fans of ’80s metal, and we don’t mean that in a derogatory way. Vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy spoke about the song in the comments section of the post announcing the new clip.
Said Heafy on Facebook,
“Hey pals! I’m so stoked this is out! For those of you wondering – this song was written for Shogun, and is basically almost the same as it was, so Shogun fans rejoice; didn’t like Shogun? You may not dig this. But know that since I was 12 I wanted to be a great singer, I screamed because I couldn’t sing. I am proud and excited to finally be able to do what I love the way I love. Don’t love it? Our old stuff still exists. Love it? Awesome. I love both sides of you all regardless.”
He went on to explain the new vocals in another comment:
“I was and am only capable of the scream you heard on most our albums. I needed to spread my wings. You should know I am a massive fan of the underground and appreciate their craft. Shrieks wouldn’t work in Trivium.”
Regardless of the vocal styling, Trivium will be promoting Silence In The Snow on a co-headlining tour with Tremonti, on the 33-date HardDrive Live Tour starting in September. In addition, Ishahn has contributed to the album, he confirmed via Twitter:

Trivium, from David Draiman to Ihsahn. You can’t say they’re not diverse!
