Trivium is now streaming their new single “The Phalanx” off the coming album In The Court Of The Dragon. Trivium partnered with Elder Scrolls Online to create “The Phalanx” video, which premiered on their #GatesOfOblivion Year-End Stream on Bethesda Games’ Twitch channel.
“‘The Phalanx’ was like an old muscle car sitting in the driveway with no engine,” said bassist Paolo Gregoletto. “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.”
In The Court Of The Dragon is out October 8. Pre-orders are available here.
