Trivium — The Sin And The Sentence

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ This is the best and most interesting Trivium album since 2011′s “In Waves.” It’s shreddily heavy even when it’s not trying to be (dude, blast beats!), even as the band suppress their muscularity long enough to tick the other checkboxes. As always, Trivium are more transparent than most with their influences and “this-sounds-just-like”s, but the unpredictability of their mood swings helps offset that.
