At first I cringed listening to "Caustic", but now it's probably one of my favorites. And I have to agree on "Of All These Yesterdays", that song is fucking great.
My biggest problem with 'Caustic' is the mid section sounds too much like the intro to 'Hearts Burst Into Fire', I really just though Trivium were better than that. I have no intention of not seeing them live and supporting them, but I just hope they improve from this record y'know?
