Massive Metal Monday: Trivium “Down From The Sky”
  |  @   |  

Metal giants Trivium are teasing something big right now on their website. Their homepage is whited out with an image of snow that can be temporarily “dug” away with mouse clicks before frosting over again, revealing a very badass looking skull. The title of the page also contains the word “snow.” Additionally there is a clock on the page counting down to 7:00AM Eastern time this Thursday morning. Many fans are speculating that it will be an announcement regarding the band’s seventh album, the highly anticipated follow up to 2013’s Vengeance Falls. Rumor has it that the record is to be titled Silence In The Snow.

Be sure to stay tuned right here at GoD for updates and in the meantime, enjoy one of Trivium’s classic anthems. This is “Down From the Sky” from the high watermark of the band’s career thus far, their awe-inspiring fourth album Shogun.

When I was growing up in rural Indiana in the early ’80s, there was very limited access to heavy music. These were the days before MTV blew up with the whole hair metal, Headbangers Ball phenomenon. But on Sunday nights, there was a two-hour radio show that came from WOXY, just across the state line in Oxford, Ohio (home of Miami University of Ohio). It was called Massive Metal for the Masses, and I would wait all week for it to air. It was through this show that I was introduced to bands like Venom, Bathory, WASP, Michael Schenker Group, Slayer, and countless others. This Monday weekly column is my tip of the hat to that show. I call it Massive Metal Monday. Every week, I will pay tribute to defining moments by the artists that laid the groundwork for heavy metal to become the worldwide cultural bond for all of us metal heads.
