Interesting Facts: Ascendancy marks the first Trivium album to feature guitarist Corey Beaulieu and bassist Paolo Gregoletto. It has won the “Album of the Year Award” award from Kerrang! magazine and since its release, Ascendancy has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.

The band formed in 1999. At his Lake Brantley High School talent show, Matt Heafy performed a cover version of “No Leaf Clover” by Metallica. Singer Brad Lewter noticed Heafy and asked him to try out for his band. The pair went over to drummer Travis Smith’s house where they played a rendition of Metallica’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls”. Impressed with Heafy’s performance, they accepted him into the band known as “Trivium”, which is a Latin three-way intersection they used to explain their music as combining metalcore, melodic death metal and thrash metal. Two weeks after Matt joined the band, Brad had left the band before performing.
