After a band's been around for awhile, fans can take a step back to examine their timeline and even note how the music has evolved. In the case of Florida's own heavy metal/metalcore group Trivium, their recorded history began in 2003 with the release of an album called Ember to Inferno. Now Trivium lovers will have a chance to step back in time with the re-release of the debut album.
Ember to Inferno quickly nabbed the attention and affection of music enthusiasts turned fans. After the album, Roadrunner Records signed the band and Trivium put out their chart-topping sophomore release Ascendancy. It has only gotten better since then with more than a decade of crafting quality metal music, and building a reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with on stage and in the studio. Today, with millions of albums sold around the planet and numerous worldwide tours, Trivium is now taking a look back at their fledgling years as well as material, and want to share it, once again, with the world - only in a bigger and even better way.
Scheduled for December 2, Trivium will re-release the Ember to Inferno album, but with a whole lot of extras attached. A deluxe edition of the reissue will be made available including 13 previously unreleased tracks.
"The purpose of this release is to show the very early beginnings of Trivium—perhaps an era unbeknownst to most listeners of the band," explained Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy in a press release. "To look back at Ember... as the starting point of Trivium becoming recognized worldwide is a staggering thought for me, considering I was 16 or 17-years-old during the writing and recording of the record."
The Ember to Inferno reissue will be available in four configurations - a standard CD, standard vinyl LP, the deluxe CD with the bonus tracks, and a super awesome 5-LP box set. Pre-orders for all formats are now available by clicking here.
While currently wrapping up a heady U.S. headline tour in support of their most recent release the stellar Silence In the Snow, Trivium will head over to Europe for a string of headline dates in February and March of the new year.
