Trivium's Matt Heafy on Ember To Inferno's Curse


(Metal Hammer) Trivium's Matt Heafy says the band's 2003 debut album Ember To Inferno was ahead of its time. The record had been out of print for several years, with the band resurrecting it earlier this month along with a deluxe edition containing 13 additional early versions of songs which were previously unavailable.

And looking back, Heafy says Trivium's Ember To Inferno was "cursed" and as a result, never got the recognition it deserved upon its initial release. He tells Music Feeds: "With the record, ever since it came out it's been cursed. When we first signed to Life Force records we were incredibly excited.

"I remember when release day hit, we all went to our local record store to buy the CD, and, lo and behold, it wasn't available anywhere. Not because it sold out, but because the distribution deal Life Force had wasn't really together yet.

"We were very let down when we couldn't find the record. In our mind, the best thing that happened with Ember To Inferno is that it got us signed to Roadrunner then everything was set up correctly.

"Then we started touring, got a correct record deal where you could find the record everywhere. Looking back now, Ember To Inferno was ahead of its time and I feel that's why it didn't get the recognition." Read more here.
