Through Blood and Dirt and Bone

Album: Vengeance Falls (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This was written by Trivium on tour. Bassist Paolo Gregoletto recalled on his website: "Matt (Heafy) had some cool riffs, I had some cool riffs, and they ended up working well together. We jammed it at a sound check and demoed it out to remember it for pre-pro. Sometimes the best songs come together that simple."

    "It's a very somber song both lyrically and musically through out.," he added. "I remember the day we jammed it at the Chance in Poughkeepsie being very grey and bleak outside."
  • The music video features footage from Trivium playing the song at venues around the world. The clip was filmed and directed by Luke Daley.
