In Orlando Weekly's "Best of Orlando 2004 Edition," this publication features "Best of 2004" ranging from Sports & Recreation, Local Color, Goods & Services, Food & Drink and Arts & Entertainment around Florida. That being said, someone today stumbled upon the following piece on new RR act Trivium, rated Best Metal Act in this "Best Of 2004" piece. What was written about Trivium? Read below:

"They released a great record - "Ember to Inferno" - late last year on a German label, and then, within the space of a few months, found themselves booked on tours with the likes of Iced Earth and Chimaira and ended up signed to Roadrunner Records. Like, that's a big deal. And, unlike some of Orlando's other nationally known 'heavy' bands, the gut-punching power metal that Trivium delivers is something to be proud of, as their combination of metal's heavy history and abundant technical proficiency results in something truly forward-looking and strong. Goes to show what happens when a band sets out to be 'good' rather than 'famous.'"

Well thats a load of crap. i saw them live, they sucked. the music was alright and the vocals sucked major balls. reminded me of a really REALLY bad attempt to sound like The Haunted. on top of that, i recently talked with a dude who knows them. He said if the singer's parents didn't have money they wouldn't be where they are now. he also said there were a bunch of hired musicians and what not. that really only makes them lower on my standards. also when i saw them live, a bunch of people were literally boo-ing them. how could such a band be so great? obviously someone was bribed.
