    It's Trivium. And as a fan of their music since Ember To Inferno, I think it's a decent album. They haven't been able to top themselves at all though, and it's probably their worst album yet, but I still like it, at least a little.

    In Waves draws from the band's entire repertoire and shapes what it finds into a defining and definitive set. [6 Aug 2011, p.50]

    Blunt, focused and inventive, it's as near to classic metal as Trivium have been. [Sep 2011, p.110]

    As intense and heavy as they try to be on each song, the heaviness loses its effect when every song prior to it wielded it just the same.
