The Skinny: On April 16th, 2009, in Toronto, Canada, Trivium opened for metal heavyweights Slipknot. No stranger or lightweight to the scene or stage, Trivium threw down hard and busted the faces and ear drums of many a fan prior to the headliner. It was a battle and a half and luckily prior to the onslaught, PureGrainAudio was able to chat with guitarist Corey Beaulieu in a white-washed, backstage dressing room. In our 15 minute chat we managed to cover topics including coming tours in Japan, Australia, Europe & the US, playing summer festivals, sonic changes and much more.

Publisher, CEO, and Co-Founder - Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
