Last month, Trivium shared the album’s title track, “In The Court Of The Dragon,” which featured an epic intro composed and orchestrated by Ihsahn (Emperor) and was accompanied by an official short film music video directed by Ryan Mackfall. Loudwire called out the song as “a skillful blend of dynamics. And blast beats just sound really, really good beneath Matt Heafy’s soothing clean singing” while Revolver labeled it “epic.” Guitar World christened second single “Feast Of Fire” as “pummeling” and “quintessentially Trivium,” as Metal Injection declared it “really, really catchy.” The band also shared the video for “The Phalanx” in partnership with Elder Scrolls. Kerrang! called it “huge.” Heafy discussed the genesis of the track with NME. Read it here.
