Inception of the End

Songfacts®:

  • Trivium played this song live for the first time on July 9, 2011 at the Rockstar Mayhem Festival in San Bernardino, California. Four days later the band released it as their third new single, with the song premiering on HotTopic.com.
  • The song has been around since the Slipknot support tour Trivium did in 2009. Vocalist Matt Heafy told Alternative Press: "The main verse riff was originally a pre-chorus lodged into a rather tech-y, thrash-y song. When I showed the song to everyone, eyes lit up on the part that eventually became the verse of the track. 'Inception' has gone through maybe 5 to 10 or so changes in structure, lyrics and delivery combined. It has definitely turned into something very familiar Trivium, but with a whole new flair."
