Trivium Down from the Sky Music Video

Down from the Sky music video from Shogun, the fourth Trivium album, which was released via Roadrunner Records in September 2008.  The record was a huge success for the band, selling over 24,000 copies in the US alone during the first week of release to land at number 23 on the Billboard 200, and going on to sell over 300,000 copies worldwide.

Band frontman Matt Heafy said about the title Shogun – “The reason we picked that word is because when you think of a word like shogun, it sparks all this vivid imagery and storytelling, especially when you look into the definition. It’s the highest ranking military general in Japanese times. We really dug it. We felt it was an appropriate name for the album.”

Trivium guitarist Corey Beaulieu told Revolver Mag about the record – “We want to capture the best ingredients of everything we’ve done. Each song has a little bit of everything, going between something heavy and then melodic, and then back to something heavy. So it has a really interesting balance. On The Crusade, Matt did almost all singing, so this time we’re bringing back some of the screaming that’s on Ascendancy.”

Down from the Sky Lyrics

A chasm grows
In the cavity of serpentine teeth
Hunger pains strike
For the sweet feast of innocent blood
Of innocent bloodshed
Now here we go

The vampires feed on the wars of mankind

Growing fat on the throne of an empire
Tyrant rules with the threat of a great fire

I’ve opened up my eyes
Seen the world for what it’s worth
Tears rain down from the sky
They’ll blow it all to bits
To prove whose god wields all the power
Fire rains down from the sky

The gaping wounds
Hemorrhaging the blood from which they feast
Eat us alive
Consume to feed a hunger with no
A hunger with no end
Let’s fucking go

Down From The Sky

The vampires feed on the wars of mankind

Growing fat on the throne of an empire
Tyrant rules with the threat of a great fire

I’ve opened up my eyes
Seen the world for what it’s worth
Tears rain down from the sky
They’ll blow it all to bits
To prove whose god wields all the power
Fire rains down from the sky

This battle’s not the same which they have led us to believe
A synthesis of propaganda, terror and deceit
We are the cattle; they the slaughter; our meat: gasoline

They pump us through the machine’s valves to cleanse the world’s “disease”
We are the ammunition that will cause all life to cease

Annihilate
All those who stand in their way
Obliterate
They’ll rain their holocaust down from the sky

The vampires feed on the wars of mankind

Growing fat on the throne of an empire
Tyrant rules with the threat of a great fire

I’ve opened up my eyes
Seen the world for what it’s worth
Tears rain down from the sky
They’ll blow it all to bits
To prove whose god wields all the power
Fire rains down from the sky

Annihilate

All those who stand in their way
Obliterate
They’ll rain their holocaust down from the sky
