Trivium, DevilDriver and After The Burial decimated Philly’s TLA venue with a recent performance during the bands’ 2013 trek across North America.
Trivium released its sixth album, Vengeance Falls earlier this month via Roadrunner Records and is currently celebrating rave reviews across the metal landscape. In a recent posting at the band’s website, guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy talks about an incident that occurred on tour that inspired some of the lyrics on the new record, and the entire band (and producer David Draiman) discuss the change in Matt’s vocals on the new album. Trivium will be back on the road touring the US in November.
It’s been a big year for DevilDriver who in September released, Winter Kills, the band’s sixth studio album and first for new label, Napalm Records. The band recorded the album in Florida at Audio Hammer Studios and vocals in Los Angeles, CA at vocalist Dez’s home studio with Mark Lewis (Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, All That Remains) handling production duties. In North America, Winter Kills came in at #32 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart (The band’s highest chart debut ever), #3 on the Billboard Hard Music Chart, #10 on the Billboard Rock Chart and #13 on the Billboard Independent Chart. This is also Napalm Records best selling release in North America to date. A music video directed by Dan Burke of PianoFight Films for the song “The Appetite” can be viewed at CraveOnline.
As expected, both bands came poised for explosive sets with hordes of fans more than ready to take part in the shockwaves that prevailed. Sumerian Records recording artists, After The Burial rounded out the bill as they continue to support a new digital EP, This Life Is All We Have, featuring three re-recorded tracks from their 2005 full-length debut, Forging A Future Self. The new versions feature vocals from the group’s current vocalist Anthony Notarmaso with production by Terry Date (Deftones, Pantera) and the band’s own Justine Lowe and Trent Hafdahl.
