Pure, unadulterated metal, this is gargantuan music for the biggest of all stages.

Metal Hammer

In terms of a band playing contemporary, modern heavy metal, Trivium have been the best for some time. They still are, and In The Court Of The Dragon is a fucking awesome heavy metal album.

Metal Injection

In The Court Of The Dragon is well-written, well-executed, and a bold new step in the Trivium world.

Kerrang!

Taken together, this makes for one of 2021’s most compelling pure metal releases, and gives its makers reason to feel proud of their craft.

AllMusic

As a whole, In the Court of the Dragon stands with Trivium's best work. It offers a classic meld of melodic thrash/metalcore and tech death in a sound as enormous as it is ambitious and diverse, making for wonderfully produced, flawlessly composed songs. All killer, no filler.

Against all odds (preconceptions mostly), In The Court Of The Dragon is a surprising “return to form” for a group who stayed familiar, but struggled with finding their own identity.

A third straight homerun from this band. Jesus does this go hard! Loved the strings arrangements added by Ihsan and the throwback riffage to the shogun and ascendancy days. Cant wait to see it live!

FUCK IT!!! Best metal record from this fucking year! furious, fulled with insane riffs and solos and sometimes pretty and well done melodic, just released and almost sure their best record ever. What a beatiful cover too.

Matt Heafy went to the school of Devin Townsend and shaved his head to make the best music he could. The rest of the band followed suit. I love TSATS and WTDMS, but this is a whole different beast and I love it. I cannot recommend this album enough. Very few artists put out a great three album run while also evolving, but Trivium have done it once again.
