The band states: “We are finally here and this is the creation from years of hardships through existence, experiences formed to art and expressed as music, combined as a therapeutic channel of communication. As entities, we have been put aside to bury the raging feelings from within and never to express them. But the chalice can only hold so much.
As a dam breaking, flooding with energy, this was created to tell the story of our lives and to express ourselves through art. Upon closing this chapter we feel a sense of relief and nervosity, opening the illusionary walls of strength to step into the unknown of wisdom.
Listen to the past, learn from the past and shape the future of existence.
Join us as we tell the story about an Internal journey, of ominous visions through dreams, touching the subjects of ancient wisdoms long forgotten, cursed bloodlines.
Rituals to awaken hidden power, Animism, the souls unguarded altar, surrounding malicious spirits and repeating destructive patterns in the human behaviour.
Thank you all for making this possible, especially Non Serviam Records for supporting us throughout the process. This is the most creative and crazy album we ever created, it’s a bloody masterpiece”.
“North” is available as CD, Trans Blue 2LP, and digital.

The nine-song effort was mixed and mastered by bass player Anders Backelin (LORD BELIAL, DEATH TYRANT) at Armageddon Recordings Studio.
“North” is moving away from tight structural extreme music and wants to bring back the soul of the old greats. The record is an epic journey across blackened death metal with the band’s very own, unique flare to it.
The stunning artwork was created by Juanjo Castellano Rosado (UNLEASHED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, VARATHRON, VOMITORY, a.o.).
The track listing reads as follows
3. Imperium Romanum
5. Pallbearers Hymn
6. Final War
TRIDENT features in their ranks former DISSECTION guitar player Johan Norman, ex-LORD BELIAL Anders Backelin and Per-Owe Solvelius (FEJD), among others.
After releasing their debut album “World Destruction” via Regain Records in 2010, followed by EP “Shadows” 5 years later, facing some line-up changes, finally TRIDENT are back with full dark forces.
