Trivium Premiere “The Phalanx” Music Video


Trivium have premiered a video for their new single “The Phalanx“. That song is taken from the band’s impending new album “In The Court Of The Dragon“, which will be out next Friday, October 08th. The band partnered with ‘The Elder Scrolls Online‘ video game to create and premiere this new video.

Speaking of the song, the band’s bassist Paolo Gregoletto offered:

“‘The Phalanx‘ was like an old muscle car sitting in the driveway with no engine. It was a demo from ‘Shogun‘ that had the middle section removed for another song (‘Torn Between Scylla And Charybdis‘), demoed again on ‘Silence In The Snow‘ but ultimately scrapped, and now it has found its home on the new album.

Once we knew the album was going in a more epic, proggy direction, I immediately thought of the song and pitched the idea to the others. With a few minor changes to some chorus parts, a brand middle section, and the orchestrations from Ihsahn, ‘The Phalanx‘ was reborn. It’s got a lot of new and old riffs and I think you should dig this if you liked ‘Shogun‘.”
