Trivium Debut New Track ‘In The Court Of The Dragon’ With Short Film

Trivium have dropped a new track, ‘In The Court Of The Dragon’, which they’ve debuted with a short film directed by Ryan Mackfall.

It’s the first taste of new material from the band since last year’s full-length release of  ‘What The Dead Men Say’.

Paolo Gregoletto (Bass) had the following to say of the track.

“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.

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.

Similar to some of our past songs and albums, this song began with lyrics rooted in mythology. But unlike the past, we decided to create our own myth to fit the music. Being free to create the story and write the music without a deadline, due to a once-in-a-lifetime event, really led to one of the most rewarding writing and recording experiences we have ever had. We hope it lives up to your expectations.”

At the time of writing, it’s unknown if the track will feature on a forthcoming EP or Full length record.
