Trivium’s 10th album is the most intricate, technical, and downright hefty in their oeuvre, even by their sky-smashing standards. Bassist Paolo Gregoletto explains that In The Court Of The Dragon is built both on the back of previous record What The Dead Men Say and the forced weirdness of the pandemic.

“We hope that people can really hear the amount of time and attention to detail we put into this one,” he tells us. “From the songs themselves, from our individual playing to the orchestration to the mix, to the way everything sounds a little bit different than the last record, it’s a little heavier, a little bit more aggressive and progressive.”
