Former TRIVIUM Drummer Nick Augusto's New Band, CORROSION, Sounds Like A Heavier TRIVIUM
A quick aside, before we continue with the story…but, really? Corrosion? Did nobody in the band's camp bring up the inevitable confusion the marketplace between them and Corrosion of Conformity? Very poor SEO, fellas.
Anyway, the group also features vocalist/bassist Tommy Hjelm and guitarists Christopher Cussell and Martin Rygge. The band has recored three songs and will eventually release a digital EP. They have unveiled their first official track over at Revolver which is called "Machine Says No."
To me, it sounds like a more aggressive version of Trivium, with a different vocal presentation. Personally, the clean vocals sort of kill it for me, and not because I hate clean vocals either. Here's what Nick said about the group:
“It’s just four friends playing what makes us feel good and I really hope you all enjoy it. Really looking forward to making a full length and seeing everyone on tour soon. The idea for this project came together right after me and Trivium parted ways… All of us in Corrosion were friends already so it just felt right to start it up. I was an Insense fan, so going for a long shot them being all the way in Norway and I wanted to play in a band with them. We talked through emails and made it happen. We just wrote three songs and felt like it was a good introduction and a full length will come eventually. What you hear on this EP is just what we felt at the time and that’s what came out and it felt pretty damn good and clicked right away.”
What do you guys think of a track.
