Trivium share early demo track The Storm


Trivium have released a recording of an an early demo song called The Storm.

The track will feature on their forthcoming reissue of their 2003 debut album Ember To Inferno, which launches on December 2. Listen to The Storm below.

The Florida band’s first record, which has been out of print for several years, will be re-released alongside a deluxe version which includes 13 additional early versions of tracks which were previously unavailable.

Vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy said: “The purpose of this release is to show the very early beginnings of Trivium – perhaps an era unknown to most listeners of the band.

“To look back at Ember as the starting point of Trivium becoming recognised worldwide is a staggering thought for me, considering I was 16 or 17 years old during the writing and recording of the record.”

He added: “As a kid, I always said the goal was to be in a massive metal band. I don’t think I actually knew what it would mean to have fans in different parts of the world, and I still can’t believe people care so much that they actually want to hear the music that pre-dates our years with Roadrunner Records.

“To this day, I am still completely blown away that people are singing words to songs I wrote when I was 16 years old. It’s an amazing feeling.”

Ember To Inferno is available on standard or deluxe CD and vinyl – with the deluxe 5-LP box set versions containing bonus discs Ruber, Caeruleus and Flavus. They can be pre-ordered via Trivium’s website.

Trivium have a European tour planned for next year in support of 2015 album Silence In The Snow.
