Florida heavy metal act Trivium have partnered with Cooking Vinyl to re-release their watershed 2003 debut Ember To Inferno. The album will be released in multiple configurations including this limited edition colored 5LP deluxe box set which features the original album on gatefold 2LP, 13 bonus early demos across 3LPs, expanded booklet, poster, and stencil.
"The purpose of this release is to show the very early beginnings of Trivium – perhaps an era unbeknownst to most listeners of the band," said vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy. "To look back at Ember as the starting point of Trivium becoming recognized worldwide is a staggering thought for me, considering I was 16/17 years old during the writing and recording of the record.
"As a kid, I always said the 'goal' was to be in a massive metal band. I don't think I actually knew what it would mean to have fans in different parts of the world, and I still can't believe people care so much that they actually want to hear the music that pre-dates our Roadrunner years. To this day, I am still completely blown away that people are singing words to songs I wrote when I was 16 years old. It's an amazing feeling."
