“The Red Album‘ is the best-recorded version of the absolute earliest Trivium there is,” said singer and guitarist Matt Heafy. “‘Thrust’ was the very first Trivium song ever written, Pain the second, Lake of Fire the third.”
He continued, “Lake of Fire‘ is a very primal Trivium, but it shows that all the elements of the band Trivium fans know today, have been there since the beginning. Clean melody, intense speed; the sonic interplay of light and dark; melody and brutality — it was all there from the start. Lyrically, Lake of Fire sets an intense stage for the visions of the underworld it invokes. Enjoy your journey… into the Lake of Fire!'”
