Trivium's Unique Sound: Well-Loved Around the World
Trivium's name comes from a Latin word meaning three-way intersection and was used to describe the band's style of melodic death metal, metalcore and thrash metal. Although the band's sound has evolved over the years and many describe Trivium as a heavy metal band, Trivium maintains a unique sound characterized by these three genres. The band was formed in 1999 by Brad Lewter and Travis Smith. Lewter was impressed by Matt Heafy during his eighth-grade talent show and asked him to play in his band. Trivium played local gigs for a few years, then created a studio-quality demo disc in 2002. Lifeforce signed the band after hearing the demo. Trivium's first studio album, Ember to Inferno, was released on October 14, 2003. The band's second studio album, Ascendancy, ranked No. 151 on the Billboard 200 and No. 79 on the UK Albums Chart.

Ever since Trivium's The Crusade in 2006, the band has consistently charted in numerous countries around the world, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Austria and France.
