According to ThrashHits.com, Florida metallers TRIVIUM have set”Vengeance Falls” as the title of their recently completed sixth album, due late summer via Roadrunner Records. The CD was produced byDISTURBED/DEVICE frontman David Draiman at a studio in Austin, Texas and was mixed by Colin Richardson, who has previously worked with FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT andBULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.
Speaking to Loudwire, Draiman explained how he came to be involved with the new TRIVIUM album. “We were talking about doing it for years,” he said. “The first time it really came up definitively was when TRIVIUMwas supporting DISTURBED on an Australian run — this was after the ‘In Waves’ record had been out already and I thought they had taken some pretty huge strides with that record, melodically and in terms of the strength of their songs. It was then that I had some conversations with them like, ‘You know, it would be a good idea for us to work together, because I think you guys have opened the door to something and you have incredible capabilities and I’d like to help you.’ We had more and more conversations over the course of time, and they came through Austin, Texas, one time while they were on tour and I played them some songs from the DEVICE record and we talked a little more about really figuring out how to set this in stone and put a time together and we did. They started sending me material and I started sending them comments on the material, and we started communicating in a pre-production sort of fashion, online at first, then over the phone and then in at the end of the second week of January they came out to my house here in Austin. It was basically two weeks of intense pre-production — 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., six days a week — then about a month or so of tracking. Once we had finalized everything, we executed it rather quickly but there was a lot of work and prep involved. These guys learned a lot and grew a lot and has made a record that is going to be a defining moment in their career.”
