I've recently stumbled upon this band and have to say holy cow they are everything I look for in music. What are your opinions on them? I can hear a huge influence from the Old (best version) of Metallica. Hell their lead vocalist even has a voice that could be mistaken for James Hetfields from back in the day. So what are your thoughts?

yeah same here, I'm a fan of "All that Remains" and I was watching a clip from the tour they're doing right now and it just so happens that Trivium is on that tour also. So I got to listen to some of their stuff and like you said... they blew my head off.

They have generally the exact mixture of Heavy and Melodic metal as I like. Plus I swear that lead singer sounds just like a mid 80's James Hetfield Reincarnated

I feel the same way about them as I do about Coheed and Cambria, give me the original band over these younger bands who sound exactly like great classic bands. Its one thing to be influenced, its another thing to make a career off of someone else's sound.

Honestly I think Trivium's sound is different then Metallica, but that's me. I think overall its much louder...at least the older stuff is.
