Terry “Beez” Bezer of Scuzz recently conducted an interview with guitarist Corey Beaulieu and guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of Florida metallers TRIVIUM. You can now watch the chat below.

TRIVIUM‘s new album, “Vengeance Falls”, made Top 10 chart debuts in Japan, Australia, Germany and Austria as well as a Top 15 debut in Canada and a Top 25 debut in the United Kingdom. This marks the acclaimed metallers second consecutive Top 15 debut in the U.S. and highest-career debuts around the globe — including a No. 2 debut in Japan.

“Vengeance Falls” sold 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The record — which was produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE) — arrived in stores on October 15, 2013 via Roadrunner.

TRIVIUM‘s previous CD, “In Waves”, opened with 22,000 units to land at No. 13 — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band’s career. The group’s 2008 effort, “Shogun”, premiered with just under 24,000 copies to debut at No. 23. The effort followed up “The Crusade”, which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to enter the chart at No. 25.

TRIVIUM‘s “Strife” video was filmed in July 2013 at Studio One in Orlando and was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with NONPOINT, DARKEST HOUR, INCUBUS and ALL THAT REMAINS, among others.

TRIVIUM recently finished touring North America with DEVILDRIVER.

Caleb Smith of “The Sick Room” radio in New Zealand recently conducted an interview with guitarist Corey Beaulieu of Florida metallers TRIVIUM. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

TRIVIUM‘s eagerly awaited new album, “Vengeance Falls”, will be released on October 15 via Roadrunner Records. Produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE), the follow-up to 2011’s “In Waves” is available for pre-order at Trivium.org.

Producer David Draiman added: “‘Vengeance Falls’ is a masterpiece of metal. It is [TRIVIUM‘s] finest work to date, and a record so strong that it will blow the doors open to a world they deserve to dominate.”

“Vengeance Falls” marks a massive creative milestone for the acclaimed metallers. The collection — recorded earlier this year at Draiman‘s Austin, Texas home studio — sees the band pushing the envelope on their own distinctive sound, a sonic approach that saw “In Waves” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart upon its release, not to mention a stunning Top-15 debut on The Billboard 200 — their highest chart rankings to date.

DEVICE and DISTURBED frontman David Draiman and his wife, Japanese-American model, actress and wrestler Lena Yada, welcomed a baby boy, Samuel Bear Isamu Draiman, this morning at 12:58 a.m.

In a Facebook post, Draiman wrote, “MY DEAR FRIENDS, BORN AT 12:58 AM ON THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 12 2013, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO OUR SON, SAMUEL BEAR ISAMU DRAIMAN. MY WIFE LENA IS SUPERWOMAN…29 HOURS OF LABOR! BOTH MOTHER AND CHILD ARE HEALTHY AND WELL. I THANK THE POWERS THAT BE FOR THIS GREATEST OF GIFTS. ALL MY LOVE AND RESPECT, -DAVID”

Draiman brought his then-pregnant wife up on stage during DEVICE‘s August 11 concert in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the final stop of this summer’s Gigantour.

Draiman revealed the news of the pregnancy on May 2 on Twitter and also let the audience know at the Revolver Golden Gods awards, where he performed LED ZEPPELIN‘s “Whole Lotta Love” with HALESTORM.

Draiman and Yada were married in September 2011. The Pulse Of Radio asked Draiman at the time how he thought becoming a family man might change his music. “You know, I can only imagine that it would give me more inspiration to write,” he said. “I think that when you all of a sudden become a family man, and you have more to worry about than just yourself, your concerns, they build, in terms of things going on with the world, in terms of your life, in terms of your fears and your hopes and your dreams. And so I really think it’ll be a tremendous catalyst for potential inspiration.”

DEVICE released its self-titled debut album on April 9. It debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard album chart, selling 35,000 copies in its first week of release.
