The title track of Trivium's Silence In The Snow
album, this was written after the band toured Japan with the group Heaven & Hell in 2007. That group's lead singer was Ronnie James Dio. Frontman Matt Heafy explained in an Allstars interview (transcribed by Blabbermouth.net
). "Seeing that for the first time really changed something in all of us, and I started writing the song 'Silence In The Snow' back in 2007."
"And I feel that song, maybe, was too big for where we were at the time, maybe we hadn't grown into the song yet, so we held on to it for about eight years, where finally Paolo [Gregoletto, bass] was, like, 'I think 'Silence In The Snow' should be on the next record.' And we wrote new music, put that on there, and that became the title track of the record."
