We are counting down the days to Rockstar Mayhem Fest  coming to the Bay Area at the Shoreline Amphitheater on July 6th. We are looking forward to all the great bands and today we wanted to put our spotlight on one of the amazing bands on the lineup. Today our featured band of the day is Trivium.

Trivium is an awesome band live since they can replicate their studio sound impeccably. These guys come out blazing and don’t stop until they step off that stage. Stage presence is spectacular as their energy is just non stop. Matt Heafy on Guitar and Lead Vocals is definitely a crowd pleaser. Then you can’t stop going back and forth to watch madman Corey Beaulieu terrorize his Jackson Guitars and Paolo Gregoletto kills it on his B.C. Rich custom bass. What a show they promise to bring to this year’s Rockstar Mayhem Fest.

 

 

Their  album “Vengeance Falls” has consistently been getting incredible high marks and reviews! It was produced by another one of my fave musicians David Draiman and every song will just take control of you. Make sure to pick up your copy and tell me which are your faves. Mine personally is Brave the Storm and Strife.

We just received word that Trivium have announced they are parting ways with their drummer, Nick Augusto. They made the following post via their Facebook page:

 

To Trivium Fans, Friends and Family:

I had asked everyone to make this statement regarding Nick, personally and on behalf of the band because of the history we both have had together as friends and bandmates. There is no easy way to go about parting ways with someone; whether it’s in a band or not, but if it is coming directly from one of us, I hope that it will be perceived out of our respectfor him.

This past Sunday, Matt, Corey, and I decided that it was best to part ways with Nick and to move forward as soon as possible. This decision was not one that we took lightly, given the fact that we are in the midst of a tour, and more importantly, that Nick has been with us for almost 3 and half years.

We spoke face to face for about an hour on the bus – first informing him of our decision to move forward, both discussing the situation and how to precede with announcing it, as well as personally thanking him for being there when we needed him as a tech, and then as drummer. I made both those calls to Nick – I asked him if he would be willing to drop everything and come out and be apart of Trivium at a moments notice and he did without hesitation. On stage we all fit well together – I believe we became a tighter and more unified band because of him. There was not a dramatic ending to this, honestly it was quite muted and I am happy to have been able to speak directly and calmly to one another.

I believe we all agreed that what started out great “off stage” in the beginning, over time began to fray. It became obvious that things were not going to work out in the long run. We did not want to reach the point where the differences between us became apparent on stage. Being in a band is privilege afforded to us by all of you, and as much as we owe you guys the best show we can possibly give you, we also realize that being out here has to be enjoyable enough for us to continue to do so.

We truly wish nothing but the best for Nick and whatever projects he becomes involved in. We will be rooting for him to succeed. I would like to add that as the one who championed Nick to become our drummer 3 and half years ago, I will be the first person to vouch for him as an incredible drummer and as an immense force and presence on stage. The last show together at Carolina Rebellion was a powerful one, and I am happy to say that we ended our time together on such a high and positive note.

Lastly, I would like to thank our drum tech Mat Madiro for stepping up to the plate and learning our entire set in 24 hours, allowing us to continue this tour without a hitch. We have always tried to treat both band and crew as family, and the support for Mat from our other crew guys has been amazing, thank you all – Eric, Joey, Sam, Jeremy, and Mike! Another HUGE thank you to Volbeat and their crew for giving us their entire sound check at the Niagara Falls show to allow us to run through the set with Mat. They have been a great band to tour with and this act only further solidified to us what stand up guys they are on and off stage.

Nick, thank you once again for the hard work with us, we will always be grateful for the time we spent together with you on the road and in the studio.

Thank you all for your support and understanding.

Sincerely,

Paolo Gregoletto

 

We wish Nick all the best as well as Trivium to keep KICKING ASS as they always do on stage! We saw them last year when they came to San Francisco. Check out a tribute video that Rockin Ryan put together to “BLACK” that includes footage and photos from the night.

 

One thing is for sure, they come out blazing and don’t stop until they step off that stage. Stage presence is spectacular as their energy is just non stop. Matt Heafy on Guitar and Lead Vocals is definitely a crowd pleaser. Then you can’t stop going back and forth to watch madman Corey Beaulieu terrorize his Jackson Guitars and Paolo Gregoletto kills it on his B.C. Rich custom bass. What a show they always put out!

Make sure to check out their social media sites and pick up “Vengeance Falls” today online at their website or your local music store.  I will leave you with photos of their set from San Francisco The Regency Ballroom by Rockin Ryan.

Last week on October 15th Trivium gave a hell of a show at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. We got there in time to see DevilDriver open up for them and they did a kick ass show as well.  Then Trivium came out and just unleashed their ferocious selves on San Francisco!

It was great to watch and see the action in the pit as well as everyone around. They were all having a great time. Check out a tribute video that Rockin Ryan put together to “BLACK” that includes footage and photos from the night.

 

One thing is for sure, these four guys come out blazing and don’t stop until they step off that stage. Stage presence is spectacular as their energy is just non stop. Matt Heafy on Guitar and Lead Vocals is definitely a crowd pleaser. Then you can’t stop going back and forth to watch madman Corey Beaulieu terrorize his Jackson Guitars and Paolo Gregoletto kills it on his B.C. Rich custom bass. Then you can’t help but look back and seeing Nick Augusto having just as much as fun if not more pounding out the heavy beats on drums. What a show!

Their new album “Vengeance Falls” which was released just last week has been getting incredible marks and reviews! It was produced by another one of my fave musicians David Draiman and every song will just take control of you. Make sure to pick up your copy and tell me which are your faves. Mine personally is Brave the Storm and Strife which they released a video out for last month and you can check it out here:
