A more than useful stand-in on the US leg of Trivium’s Into The Mouth Of Hell We Tour trek, the skinsman appears on new track Shattering The Skies Above.
And singer Matt Heafy today confirmed Augusto has replaced Travis Smith for good. “We’re really happy to have our good friend and fellow Floridian Nick Augusto join the Trivium family,” he said.
“Nick’s drumming is very technical and diverse and he brings a real intense energy to the band and we can’t wait for everyone to hear the new song, Shattering The Skies Above, that we just recorded with Nick.
“I think it’s the best Trivium recording we’ve ever done. It’s raw, full of energy, and I think Nick’s drumming really pushed us to a new level.”
