Chinese D and Lost Room coming in late 2006

October 6, 2006 at 1:34 am (Uncategorized)

I am in New Mexico working on a new show called Lost Room – Coming soon to Sci Fi

Interscope wants CD out before Thanksgiving, so I guess I could believe the Rolling Stone blog mention… BUT Jarmo at htgth says NOT TRUE. I guess it makes sense, RS issuly gets stuff wrong. I think we might be looking for a single to hit in early to late November and the full album to follow 2 to 4 weeks after that. The band is back in rehearsal right now – This is FACT. What are they rehearsing???? I would guess it is new material. On another note I hope they bring Estrange back into the set. Estrange is like wine… it gets better with age. Dizzy’s solo on that song is so frakking good.

I am trying to get episode 101 edited so we can post it for you guys ASAP.

Here is a review of Trivum by Ol’Metalhead aka Garth Ridout:

Gareth (OldMetalHead) from Boca here with
a review of the Trivium show last Saturday, September
30th at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale Florida.

This show was the the first date of a 30 date
headlining tour of Orlando, Florida based Trivium. If
you haven’t gotten a taste of Trivium yet, pick up
their new album CRUSADE on Tuesday October the 10th.
This is a young, energetic band with a great deal of
respect for those bands that went before them. They
have heavy influences of Metallica, Slayer, Pantera
and Testament. Guitarists Matt Heafy and Corey
Beaulieu are massively talented and are on par with
anyone in metal today. While I personally haven’t been
overly impressed by lead singer Matt Heafy’s vocals on
their previous 2 albums, Ember to Inferno and
Ascendancy, samples of Heafy’s vocals from Crusade
(from 4 new songs on their myspace page at
http://www.myspace.com/trivium) are much more reminiscent of
traditional metal.

I was surprised that Trivium chose this venue to begin
the tour because the Culture Room, while a fantastic
venue to see your favorite band up close and personal,
seemed a little small for a band that is starting to
explode onto the metal scene. The club was packed and
you had to stake out your spot on the floor and be
prepared to defend it! Local supporting acts Sense of
Being and Saq each played great sets. Main support act
Rising Up Angry from Atlanta did a great job getting
the crowd amped for Trivium.

Trivium went on at about 10:30 to frenzied applause
and waves of upheld metalhorns. The band commenced to
blast through an hour and 20 minute set that featured
songs from their new album Crusade and “old standards”
from Ember to Inferno and Ascendency. Highlights of
the night were: Entrance of the conflagration; A
Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation; Pull Harder on the
Strings of Your Martyr; Dying in your Arms, and
Anthem. The new stuff reminds me a lot of Metallica in
terms of arrangements, vocals, and flat-out
virtuosity.

The circle pit proved to be a great bonding
experience for my son and I. He watched my back and I
watched his and we hung in at the edge of the pit all
night…it was in a word – awesome!

All in all…a good time was had by all…and yes,
Mark and John …I was by far the oldest guy in the
club! I had the greyest “goat” in the place!

If you get a chance to see Trivium on this current
tour…by all means go and and see them. It might be
your last chance to see them in a venue smaller than
arena or stadium. These guys are on the verge of
greatness. Diehard fans think they’re already there

<Mark thanks Gareth for his great review>
