Corey Beaulieu / Trivium

Trivium formed in 1999 in Orlando, Florida, after the band's original singer saw Matt Heafy perform Metallica's "No Leaf Clover" at his high school talent show. The young members chose Trivium for its meaning in medieval Latin (the lower division of the seven liberal arts, comprising grammar, rhetoric, and logic), liking the way it implied an open-mindedness to different styles and how it summed up their musical aesthetic.

Corey Beaulieu joined the metallers after their debut album release in 2003 and is credited for bringing along his death metal influence. Nearly 15 years later, Beaulieu and Trivium are still carrying the metalcore torch high as they continue to release new music and tour the world relentlessly.

Quotable:

"Just out of all the guitar brands out there, it all goes back to when I first got into heavy metal - just wanting to play, especially the King V. I remember seeing pictures of Dave Mustaine from Megadeth when he was playing them and I always thought that was the raddest guitar." - Corey Beaulieu
