Trivium formed in Orlando, Florida in 2000 and quickly built up a buzz in the metal scene of the area. Their music contains elements of thrash, progressive rock and grindcore and is very reminiscent of 80s and early 90s metal, particularly due to the emphasis on flashy guitar solos and harmonic dual guitar riffs. Their influences include Metallica, Iron Maiden and Pantera.

In 2003 Trivium released their debut album, Ember to Inferno, with the label Lifeforce. They were then signed by Roadrunner Records and, after a change in the band's line-up, released their second album, Ascendency, in 2005. Ascendency has won the band great acclaim and things are looking good for their follow up album, set to be released later in 2006.

Trivium's lead singer/guitarist Matthew Heafy is just 20, yet his musical talent and style surpass his years. Born in Japan, Heafy moved to the US as an infant. Heafy was a team captain in Roadrunner Records' 2005 25th Anniversary special album. At 19 he was the youngest team captain alongside Rob Flynn of Machine Head, Dino Cazares of Fear Factory and Joey Jordison of Slipknot. That's quite an achievement!
