Beyond Oblivion

Album: The Sin and the Sentence (2017)

  • Lyrics
  • This song was birthed when Trivium guitarist Corey Beaulieu was scrolling through his TV guide and saw the phrase 'Beyond Oblivion' on a show, which he noted down. Bassist Paolo Gregoletto recalled to TeamRock:

    "I felt like I could make that work for a chorus, so I had to think of a theme of what that would be. I was listening to a bunch of podcasts about artificial intelligence, but they were comparing the idea of the coming technology to the atomic bomb - of how we created this incredibly immense, dangerous world-destructing thing in a moment when no one was really thinking of the implications. The song was viewing it from the perspective of someone that creates this sort of technology and comes to view it for what it is."
