Trivium hail from Orlando, Florida & formed in 1999.
This is the title-track to their newly announced album: “In The Court Of The Dragon“, which will be dropping on October 8th.
According to a press release, bassist Paolo Gregoletto said of the song:
“We started putting together the riffs for what would become ‘In the Court of the Dragon’ last year with no touring on the horizon. We decided to use the uncertainty to our advantage and to create without any of the limitations and commitments that would normally be eating away at our time in the jam room.”
About the deeper meaning, he continues, “The title of the song came from a short story by Robert W. Chambers. The story is filled with dread and uncertainty, and that felt fitting for the times we’ve all been living in for the last year. Rather than a direct re-telling, we decided to go a different route and build our own narrative around the music that we were creating.”
Trivium will also be performing with Megadeth, Lamb of God, and In Flames on Wednesday, September 1st in Irvine at Five Point Amphitheatre.
