Floridian metal giants Trivium have just dropped a new track called ‘Amongst The Shadows & The Stones’, the latest single to come from their forthcoming ninth LP, ‘What The Dead Men Say’.
This is what guitarist Corey Beaulieu had to say of the song.
“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.”

The band’s ninth album, ‘What The Dead Men Say’, is scheduled for release on April 24th 2020 via Roadrunner Records.
