Ahead of the release of their ninth studio album, What The Dead Men Say, next week, Florida metal favourites Trivium have dropped the heaviest track from their new album as their brand new single!
Titled Amongst The Shadows And The Stones, this is Trivium at their ear melting, neck splintering best. The heaviest track from What The Dead Men Say, this is one that is sure to fire up many a festival crowd once we are all allowed to gather at such events once again.
Listen to Amongst The Shadows And The Stones here:
Trivium guitarist Corey Beaulieu explains how the song came into existence:
“The inspiration for the song started when a war history website that I follow posted a story of a soldier visiting the graves of his fallen comrades and he described it as walking ‘amongst the shadows and the stones. The first thing I came up with was ‘The ghosts of war will haunt my bones, amongst the shadows and the stones,’ which then inspired the music for the song. But the lyrical subject became something totally different as we got deeper into the songwriting, but that was the spark. Now ‘Amongst The Shadows & The Stones’ captures elements of the heaviest material Trivium has done across our entire catalogue.”
