Metalcore Rockers Trivium Release New Single “In The Court of The Dragon”

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Metalcore band Trivium has put out a new single called “In The Court of the Dragon”. The song starts off with lead vocalist Matt Heafy ragefully screaming out the chorus as the other instruments lead into the song. With the abruptness of the intro, one has to wonder where it will fit in on their upcoming album. In typical Trivium fashion, they take us on an epic five-minute journey with their unmistakable sound. The rapid guitar riffs are almost inhuman. “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.” as bassist Paolo Gregoletto explained recently. The song has been very well-received on their subreddit, as the number of streams quickly begin to rise. You can view the official video for the song here, where they attempt to bring this story to life:

LYRICS:

In the court of the dragon
Death of gods and world
In the court of the dragon
You will know your worth
Hammer clenched
Open mouth
Living ‘neath the tides of pain
Surely any man would drown
Horrid king
Cries unheard
Bathed in blood
You’ll get what you deserved
Burning home
Only child
Hidden from the deadly ones
Hunted far but never found
Nightmare past
Haunting him
Bides his time
Sinks into the sea
In the court of the dragon
Death of gods and world
In the court of the dragon
You will know your worth
Final clash
Beast and man
Rising from the violent waves
With the bloodied head in hand
Open mouth
Swallowing the king
Gods devoured whole
Light extinguishing
No more
Will the sun look down to illuminate the world?
In spite of all the hate behind these eyes
I’ve seen that only one of us survives
I’m here to destroy you, I’m here to avenge
In the court of the dragon, I descend
The stars have died
And the heavens go up in flames
Earth
Sinks
The stars have died
And the heavens go up in flames
Earth
Sinks
The stars have died
And the heavens go up in flames
Earth
Sinks
The stars have died
And the heavens go up in flames
In spite of all the hate behind these eyes
I’ve seen that only one of us survives
I’m here to destroy you, I’m here to avenge
In the court of the dragon, I descend
In spite of all the hate behind these eyes
I’ve seen that only one of us survives
I’m here to destroy you, I’m here to avenge
In the court of the dragon, I descend
In the court of the dragon
Death of gods and world
In the court of the dragon
You will know your worth
