Vengeance Falls is the Florida Heavy Metal band Trivium’s sixth full-length studio album (fifth since their breakthrough). It was released in 2013 on Roadrunner Records and was produced by Disturbed’s David Draiman. Furthermore; it was drummer Nick Augusto’s second and final album with the band.

Musically, the album is very much a continuation of the previous album In Waves. It seems as though the band have settled upon a sound that is “them” and its pretty good. They don’t have the momentum that they had when Ascendency was breaking anymore, but they’ve cemented their place as a solid and respectable, hard-working Metal band. Similarly; this album isn’t their most exciting record ever but is an absolutely solid and welcome addition to the discography. It doesn’t have anything particularly special about it in a sound-bite kind of way…its not “their most commercial” or “their heaviest” or “their most progressive” album – its another well-crafted, well-played, respectable but not world-shattering selection of Trivium material just like In Waves was.

There are some highlights; such as the fantastic “Incineration: The Broken World” and the catchy ”To Believe” which are worth noting, but otherwise its an album that is best consumed in a single sitting as a whole. There are great solos, crushing breakdowns, fun melodies and a mixture of everything the band tried on their varied first four albums all meshed into one whole.

Overall; Vengeance falls is a decent and totally respectable album from these guys. If you are a Trivium fan, buy it and enjoy more of that same great sound you already love. If you are on the fence, maybe start somewhere else first and pick it up when you’re already on board.
