The only Trivium song I really like is Becoming the Dragon. I've never listened to Shogun aside from two songs but I don't have a desire to. Matt's vocals bother me a lot.

Totally understandable. That's usually the thing that draws the most hate for the band.

I also like the song "In the Fire" on that Roadrunner United album a lot. To me that song shows that Matt is a talented guitarist, I just think his vocals and his songwriting with Trivium are bad for my tastes.

Trivium is one of the only metalcore bands where I like the clean vocals more then the harsh vocals. Matt's clean vocals are actually pretty good, if he did them most of the time I think they would be a better band. I think Shogun is actually a pretty good album.

If you haven't listened to it, just listen to Insurrection and tell me how that's not a good song.
eh, it was ok. a couple good riffs here and there but overall pretty boring. and Matt's vocals don't help lol

Great pick w/ 'The Bleeding'!!!! Not often I'll call a death metal album beautiful, but that masterpiece is!

I like your Trivium pick, too

Matt's clean vocals are some of the best in metalcore. I hate the terrible corny vocals of Bullet for my Valentine and bands similar to that. In the Fire off of the Roadrunner United album is amazing. The solos are incredible. It truly feels like a King Diamond or Mercyful Fate song.

Well, I think you could thank this guy for that.

Highly praised as one of the best metal albums of all time, Rust In Peace is Megadeth at its finest. There's not much to say what hasn't been said before, but this album just rips from start to finish, from the quintessential Megadeth classic "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due" to the nuclear warhead anthem, "Rust In Peace... Polaris." As usual with Megadeth, the musicianship is top notch and lightyears ahead of their peers. Mustaine's riffs are some of the most technical and complex in thrash, yet are still memorable and catchy. David Ellefson's basslines are solid and pretty unique as well, the best examples being "Five Magics" and "Poison Was the Cure" (his little solo run in "Take No Prisoners" is pretty sick, as well). The album also marks the debut of guitar virtuoso Marty Freidman and drummer Nick Menza in Megadeth. Friedman's leads on this album are among the best in metal history, the most known one being "Tornado of Souls." Menza's drumming is excellent and precise and fits perfectly with the songs. Props to Mike Clink and Max Norman for producing and engineering the album, respectively. The album has a classic and truly timeless sound. Megadeth have always been one of the most unique bands in metal, and Rust In Peace is their crowning achievement. It's a damn shame I couldn't get into their set last summer when I saw them play the whole damn thing in its entirety...
Standout Track
Holy Wars... The Punishment Due

I personally like Peace Sells a tiny bit better, but both albums are classic.
