In quite exciting news, pro drummer Nick Augusto (ex-Trivium) has joined the ranks of the much smaller but way cooler Orbweaver. Hey, I like me some Trivium but if they let Augusto go it’s their loss. Nick’s ability to tightly execute harder parts or just get down and dirty will fit in well with the sort of loose yet spastic death metal style of the very out there Orbweaver. I can’t wait to hear Nick play “Crystal Prisms” in particular. This is gonna rule.
Comments Augusto of enlisting with this heady band, “I’m happy to have been asked to be a part ORBWEAVER. We have all played shows with each other’s bands in the past and have been friends in this scene for quite some time now. I’ve jammed with [guitarist/vocalist] Randy [Piro] before, so the timing was right when we got a hold of each other to join forces and write new material. Looking forward to what this new CD and the future holds for ORBWEAVER!”
Hexagram 23 is the working title of ORBWEAVER’s forthcoming anticipated full-length. The record follows the band’s critically-adored debut EP, Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon, which Terrorizer Magazine dubbed, “a surreal and thoroughly absorbing journey that is equal parts psychedelic, brutal and intricate.”
Seriously, it’s crazy shit fans of everything from Gigan to Psyopus to classic death metal ala Morbid Angel can enjoy on some level. Fucking horns.
