This is a good thing. I didn’t like it when they tried too hard to be 80s metal.
I haven’t been following Trivium in the last little bit, so I don’t know if Matt went back to screaming most of the time or not, but his screams are turning more into lower growls apparently. I like it. It’s definitely a step up.
