Trivium Share Details For New Album “In The Court Of The Dragon”, Debut “Feast Of Fire” Video


Just over a month after releasing their new single and short film “In The Court Of The Dragon“, Trivium have unleashed yet another single, “Feast Of Fire“. In addition to that, they’ve pulled back the curtain on their tenth studio album “In The Court Of The Dragon“, which will be out October 08th on Roadrunner Records.

The band recorded that effort in secret this past fall with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira) behind the boards. Wilbur also oversaw the mixing duties. Speaking of “Feast Of Fire“, bassist/vocalist Paolo Gregoletto commented:

“There’s always that one song you aren’t expecting when you begin writing a new album. It could be a riff written on the spot in the rehearsal space, a lyric that pairs just right with a melody, or in the case of ‘Feast Of Fire‘, sitting right there in front of us in the middle of a demo that Corey brought in. We were well into pre-production at Full Sail when we all decided that something about the demo we had tracked was good but could be even better. Our producer Josh Wilbur even had in his notes: ‘Bridge is special, maybe so special it needs its own song.’ We tore the song apart and began again on the spot.

We went into this album knowing we had time to consider everything and anything that came about during this period, and if need be, we could start again if it didn’t feel right given that no touring was on the horizon.

I had the words ‘Feast Of Fire‘ written in my running list of notes for lyric ideas that I try to amass before we record. Something about the phrase stuck out to me. It felt like the missing piece of the story we were trying to tell with this album, a climactic moment and a real centerpiece for the narrative.

After all these years, I’m still blown away at how a song can really appear out of thin air and take the album to a place you weren’t expecting. Those are the moments we are always looking for when making a record.”

A video for that track shot at the band’s hangar with director John Deeb can be found below. As for the album’s artwork, the group had French artist Mathieu Nozieres create the piece, with frontman/guitarist Matt Heafy offering:

“While the music of ‘In The Court Of The Dragon‘ was taking shape, we knew we needed epic artwork of the type that you might see on the wall of an important museum from a long dead renaissance master. After extensive research, we found one of the few living artists who is capable of creating artwork like Caravaggio and Gentileschi — painter Mathieu Nozieres. Mathieu took our song title and created an original oil painting on canvas unlike anything we could have ever imagined. It’s so staggeringly breathtaking and epic and it looks like what the song and album sounds like.”
