“Until the World Goes Cold:” Are Trivium Destined for Breakout Radio Success?


trivium - inexpressive lady with goop on her handIf Trivium are ever gonna have a shot at a big-time breakout smash at modern rock radio, “Until the World Goes Cold” is probably it. Like other more mainstream-friendly metal bands that have crossed over into that territory — All That Remains, Five Finger Death Punch, etc — Trivium have gone with their slower, more melodic side here. Can Trivium match the success achieved by those two bands? Who knows, but this seems like as good a shot as any.

The pros: It’s a super catchy tune! Well-written and with a sing-along hook in the chorus. Still sounds like the band who wrote it.

The cons: All that auto-tune! Why?? Matt Heafy’s voice is fantastic on its own. Maybe the powers that be decided it was necessary for radio?

Check out “Until the World Goes Cold” below, along with a nifty new video, and see what you think. The band’s new album, Inexpressive Lady With Goop On Her Hand, comes out on October 2nd via Roadrunner.
