Don't see the Sabbath part, I do see a lot of (Sabbath influence on Hotter Than Hell - the album). But yes the production is too light...I also hate the kids singing on it.

On this subject, if you get past the clean vocals check out their new song Shattering the Skies Above. The breakdown (at 2:11) is really...crazy. It doesn't sound like Trivium at all, but that may be the new drummer's death metal roots. The usual Trivium guitar (which is awesome to me) kicks in after 20 seconds or so, but if that's a sign of things to come, I'm excited about their new album.

It's the chorus for me. It sounds like it should be the theme tune to a Sunday morning toddler's TV show, with some twat in a puffy animal costume clapping along.

That's easy, I'd rather they used clean vocals all the time.

My opinion of them though was compounded by seeing them live supporting Slayer. Not only were they really quite poor, Heafy's attitude was that it was his show, not Slayer's, and he came across as a complete tool.

definently agree with this.

Odd, most people hate their clean vocals.

Also odd, I've never seen them anything other than great live.

Fuck you, Fuck you, Fuck You. Yes it is 1985, and it should always be 1985. Whenever some asshole like Mike Patton hears a band like Gamma Ray and goes "UGH, what year is it?" you go "it's 1985 motherfucker!" and give them a wedgie.

It should always be 1985 because....all the great metal bands of the 70's and early 80's have been playing like it's 1985 since 1975!!

I am speaking strictly for the low common denominator of metal. Yes there should be that 30% of metal bands that expanding the genre (in ways that don't involve hardcore or hip hop, I think we've had enough of that for two eternites), but there is no reason that any other third rate metal ensemble should not have a) a singing voice, b) a recognizable riff as a hook, and c) a guitar solo, or a pretty fucking sweet middle eight of more riffs and melodies (see: Kashmir, A Skull Full of Maggots, Jesus Christ Pose, Cold Gin).
I am that nameless person and I stand behind it 100%. A band should not feel obligated to play guitar solos just because it's what's always been done. That Dave Mustaine interview also involved him saying "thank God for bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium bringing back the guitar solo."

Leviathan has two guitar solos. Count 'em, two. The bluegrassy thing in Megalodon and the bit towards the end of Hearts Alive. That is all it needs.

I think they were having a really off night. They were really flat and frankly boring. And then on top of that most of the Slayer fans were getting on their back.

Heafy's response to that was not very good, and the fact that Slayer had to race through their set because some genius gave Trivium and Slayer the same time on stage didn't help.
