Guitarist Corey Beaulieu of Florida metallers TRIVIUM was interviewed for the inaugural episode of “Heavy”, the brand new metal show launched by the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas radio station 97.1 The Eagle. During the chat, Beaulieu discussed the band’s tour with ASKING ALEXANDRIA; what it’s like touring with bands who look up to TRIVIUM; whom he would include on his Mount Rushmore of Metal; and his thoughts on the new SOULFLY album. You can now listen to the program below. (Note: The Beaulieu interview begins around the five-minute mark.)
“Heavy” is hosted by Scafidi and Chris, and new episodes will be posted online each Thursday.
TRIVIUM‘s latest album, “In Waves”, sold 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band’s career. The group’s previous CD, “Shogun”, opened with just under 24,000 units back in October 2008 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.
“In Waves” was recorded primarily at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida (with only the drums having been tracked at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida) with the production/mixing team of Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SLIPKNOT, FEAR FACTORY) and Martin “Ginge” Ford, along with engineer Carl Bown. A two-disc special edition is also available. It features five bonus tracks, plus a DVD with a 40-minute, behind-the-scenes documentary, as well as an exclusive concert filmed in a warehouse located in Orlando, Florida, which is the band’s stomping grounds. This concert features the first performances of tracks from “In Waves”, along with TRIVIUM classics.
