Trivium have released the artwork for their forthcoming fourth album, Shogun.

We’ve heard it, so expect a full review of Shogun on Thrash Hits .com in the coming days. Here’s an ultra-quick rundown of our first impressions…

Trivium – Shogun

‘Kirisute Gomen’ – you’ve probably already got it for free
‘Torn Between Scylla And Charybdis’ – Almost 7 minutes long. Heafy’s got his old voice back. Huge solos
‘Down From The Sky’– Over 5 minutes long. More singing but less soloing. Next single.
‘He Who Spawned the Furies’ – Just over 4 minutes. Slow and brutal. Soppy chorus gives way to some true brutality. Strong track.
‘Into The Mouth Of Hell We March’ – It’s on the Madden NFL game. Almost 6 minutes long. Galloping!
‘Throes Of Perdition’ Almost 6 minutes again. Another dramatic title. Great chorus.
‘Insurrection’ – Almost 5 minutes long. Ultra fast intro. One for fans of The Crusade.
‘Of Prometheus And The Crucifix’ – Over 4 minutes. Another dramatic title. Another great chorus. Definite single possibilty.
‘The Calamity’ – Almost 5 minutes long. Complex melodies. Great breakdown.
‘Like Callisto To A Star In Heaven’ – Over 5 minutes long. Another great title. Great galloping guitars.
‘Shogun’ – After 9 minutes it was still going, despite missing the outro. Massive.
