Florida’s metalcore quartet Trivium are hard at work on album number five. Matt is the last founding member of Trivium on the current line up. In February of 2010, drummer Travis Smith unexpectedly left the band mid-tour. He was replaced by Nick Augusto,a former member of Maruta and Metal Militia.
Heafy comments: “We were coming to the point where the band was — not necessarily dissolving — but dissolving in creativity and maybe in live fire and energy, so we had to make a change for the positive. Thankfully, we were able to find Nick, who was able to step it up and really be that guy to take us to the next level.”
Trivium’s fourth album, “Shogun,” was release in September of 2008 on Roadrunner.
