I love how bands like Trivium and Dragonforce are bringing back the standard tuned guitars. The dropped tunings were really starting to piss me off, even though I was using it for a while myself. Even now, my band has tuned back up to standard. This album is just as good as metallica, from their earlier days. Definetely recommended for any inspiring musician going towards speed and thrash metal.

John's review is right on only one account, this CD is diferrent. The screaming/roaring is mostly gone or used for special occasions("Becoming the Dragon") But John's complaints about the guitar work is interesting. See Trivium were never "metalcore", but they were close in some aspects. The guitar playing, though only drop D, was close. This CD excapes that genre for some serious thrash metal fun. Give it a chance.

after knowing that Trivium is of course a great band that includes great guitar riffs and good vocals i thought that this cd would be a good one, but after listening to it it did not even sound like their other songs from the cd Ascendency. it is just a disappointing cd because the vocals and guitar riffs are not strong and they even seem to not be there.

sure, alot of people accuse Trivium of being the "next Metallica", and quite possibly trying to re-incarnate Metallica themselves, but people need to realize, Metallica is Metallica, and Trivium is Trivium. I love this CD just as much as Master of Puppets, and you bet like Metallica, they will only get better with time. It is songs like "detonation" that instantly win over any metalhead's hearts, combining devastating thrash with melodic metal. Trust me, if you are a guitar freak, or a metalhead, or even both, this album is a must.

Trivium is the best metal band in the Underground today, and it's all because of this album. I thought Ascendancy was good, but it has almost nothing on the Crusade. My personal favorites are Detonation, We are the Fire, and The Rising.

Triv's latest album often gets slapped with labels about how the band is completely a Metallica knockoff at this point in their career. People who mention this are simply ignorant of metal, particularly their late 80s thrash. If Trivium could be compared to any band it would most certainly be Testament and if "The Crusade" was compared to any Testament album it would most certainly be "Practice What You Preach." The comparisons draw from the new guitar tuning the band works with. Originally, as with most metal acts today, they used a Drop D slightly muddy sound on their previous albums but for "Crusade" they mostly shifted to standard tuning with an extra clean production value for that typical thrash sound. But they aren't limited by any previous thrash band sounds. Throughout the album you can hear notes of Slayer especially on "To the Rats" where you would swear Kerry King came into the studio and wrote the solo. While most tracks are generally great American thrash metal some slow down a bit. "Anthem "We Are the Fire"" and "The Rising" sound like they sleezed right off a Dokken album. Overall this is a superb effort from a superbly talented band. Hopefully between bands like Trivium and Gus G's Firewind *real* metal will take the scene again and we can finally leave the late 90s influence behind.
