In January bassist Paolo Gregoletto posted photos of the band working on their next studio release. In one of the pictures, vocalist Matt Heafy was sitting next to David Draiman of Disturbed fame; leading to some speculation that he would play a part in the album's conception. It was later confirmed via Gregoletto's Facebook that Draiman would in fact be the producer.
Matt Heafy in particular was satisfied with Draiman's work on the album, calling him the "most hands-on producer" they've ever worked with. He went on to say that "Draiman helped me gain another four to six notes in my upper vocal range, which is something I never thought was possible He helped with every instrument, every song, helping create melodies — his ability to create melody is one of the most staggering things I've ever seen. The band performed the song "Brave This Storm" live on July 28, at Rock The City Bucharest in Romania and released the studio Gedion - Shit & Chalou* - Shit & Chalou three days later as a free digital download.
Vengeance Falls became available for pre-order at their official website on August The first single was available as an instant download with all pre-orders.
Buyers would receive a digital copy of the album, downloadable on the day of release. Vengeance Falls has received mostly positive reviews from professional critics, but has proven controversial among die-hard fans, mostly because of the decision of hiring David Draiman as a producer. One of the most recognized songs by the critics is " Strife ".
New Noise Magazine describes it as "an anthemic Shogun-esque track, with soaring riffs and a thick bass tone that captures Trivium at one of the high points of the album". Other impressive tracks are "Incineration: The Broken World" and "No Way to Heal", which is praised for its tempo changes and guitar solos "The real kicker though is the intense solo at the end, by far one of the best in their catalogue of over one hundred songs".
A more mixed review came from Sputnikmusic staff reviewer Thompson D. He gave the album a three out of five " Vengeance Falls is an album with Strife - Trivium - Vengeance Falls.
