The Heart of the Matter is the third studio album by Norwegian heavy metal band Triosphere, released on 7 November 2014. It is the last album with original drummer Ørjan Aare Jørgensen, who left prior to the release. Described by Triosphere as "the most intense and the most fragile music the band as ever done", it took four years to be completed from the creative process to its final form, with a recording lasting almost an entire year. Following their usual songwriting method, all songs were composed by guitarist Marius Silver Bergensenn except for the melodies composed by vocalist and bassist Ida Haukland, who also wrote all the lyrics. The album received widespread acclaim from critics, with much praise being given to its energy, composition, and Ida Haukland's vocals and lyrics. It was later voted Best Album of the Year by both Metalholic and Metal Pigeon.
