Trivium - Shogun
Shogun is the fourth studio album by American metal band Trivium. The album was originally released in 2008 and received critical acclaim.
This reissue is a 2LP magenta vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
Shogun largely features a continuation of the thrash metal style featured on The Crusade, however, it also marks the return of Matt Heafy’s screaming vocals and is also the band’s first album produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Mastodon, Deftones).
The group did not want to make an album where all songs had the same singing style and decided to just let their music flow naturally and unbiased. Unlike The Crusade, which had some songs focusing on famous and controversial murders/crimes, this album has a few songs that deal with ancient Japanese military customs and several regarding Greek mythology, some serving as metaphors to be interpreted by the listener.
