Trivium's Matt Heafy sat down with White Noise Metal to talk about the band's evolution in the writing of their latest album, Shogun.

Explains Heafy, "I wanted to make something that was pissed off. This country was supposed to be a place that was founded on living a different belief outside everyone else’s. I wanted to show my views. Sometimes we might have fans that disagree with mine and might not like what I have to say, and maybe some people come from the school of thought that you don’t discuss what your beliefs are but my thing is if we’re not completely honest in this, then what’s the point? So I wanted it to be very overtly what I’m for.”
