Dead And Gone

Album: Silence In The Snow (2015)
  • This song finds frontman Matt Heafy considering how he will be remembered when he's "dead and gone." Bassist Paolo Gregoletto said: "'Dead and Gone' is about carrying on a legacy, about being able to fight for what you believe in and for those that came before you."
  • Trivium guitarist Corey Beauileu: "The song has kind of a modern feel with the riffs, and the verses break down to a very simple drum and bass, and the vocals take center stage. And the riffs are open, but I think that riff that is the main riff of the song has always been a riff that has really grabbed people's attention when they hear it: 'Oh, that's a memorable song.' So I think it's gonna be one of those fan-favorite tracks."
