"There's always that one song you aren't expecting when you begin writing a new album," says Trivium's bassist, Paolo Gregoletto, sharing an inside look at the band's songwriting process. "It could be a riff written on the spot in the rehearsal space, a lyric that pairs just right with a melody, or in the case of 'Feast of Fire,' sitting right there in front of us in the middle of a demo that Corey (Beaulieu - guitar) brought in. We were well into pre-production at Full Sail when we all decided that something about the demo we had tracked was good but could be even better. Our producer Josh Wilbur even had in his notes: 'Bridge is special, maybe so special it needs its own song.' We tore the song apart and began again on the spot." He continues, "We went into this album knowing we had time to consider everything and anything that came about during this period, and if need be, we could start again if it didn’t feel right given that no touring was on the horizon." Further pulling back the curtain, he says, "I had the words 'Feast of Fire' written in my running list of notes for lyric ideas that I try to amass before we record. Something about the phrase stuck out to me. It felt like the missing piece of the story we were trying to tell with this album, a climactic moment and a real centerpiece for the narrative." He finishes, "After all these years I’m still blown away at how a song can really appear out of thin air and take the album to a place you weren’t expecting. Those are the moments we are always looking for when making a record."

Dead Men is an absolute masterpiece. Dragon…is just as great, while sounding completely different. Matt’s vocals have gotten a little more extreme again, but hopefully it doesn’t hurt his vocals any more. There’s simply not a hint of a bad song on this album - just like the last one (and there’s only one song on Sin that’s a throwaway for me). They’ve managed to create a triad of metal albums very few bands can pull off (Machine Head comes to mind).
Bottom line: I can barely stop listening to this album. You can’t call yourself a fan of this band unless you buy and fall in live with Dragon. End of story.

I can understand if the band isn't your thing. Some people don't like the blast beats or the growling vocals, others just don't want to admit they like Trivium because it doesn't make them metal enough. But whether it's your cup of tea or not, it's hard to deny just how much effort the band have put into the world of music this last twenty years. If they're not touring, they're recording and their efforts have morphed into a series of great albums. This being the latest of their run.
In The Court Of The Dragon shares a lot with its predecessor. It's quite dark and has a very similar sound. The guitars have quite a satisfying deep tone, the drums packing quite a punch with the bass acting like the glue that brings the two together in the mix. The production was once again handled by Josh Wilbur, a man who clearly knows what he wants out of the band.
There's a total of ten tracks and not a bad one between them. There's plenty of solid riffs, licks and choruses. My favourite of the bunch is the tenth and final track, The Phalanx. This song was a left over from the Shogun album. Funnily enough, it's my favourite album from the band. The album title track and Like a Sword Over Damocles are also great album highlights and worth a look if you're curious.
I don't have much complaints at all. I love the songs and the production. My only niggle is the fact that Alex Bent is very unimaginative with his drumming. He's a smashing drummer but he could do with trying something new as his tricks have already become quite repetitive.
Other than that, this is another fantastic album from Trivium. They've really grown into a great band and it's well worth owning if you're into this sort of thrash metal (input complaint: it's not REAL thrash!) and have enjoyed their last few albums. They've matured into a metal monster and have become one of my favourite modern bands.
