Trivium's Matt Heafy Excited About Current Lineup

(TeamRock Radio) Trivium mainman Matt Heafy says the decision to recruit drummer Paul Wandtke has been a revelation. He joined the Florida outfit last year on the recommendation of Dream Theater's Mike Mangini and replaced Mat Madiro who departed due to reasons of "creativity."

And Heafy says even after only a few months with Wandtke, it feels as if he's been part of the group for years. Heafy tells Loudwire: "For the first time in our careers, everything we're playing sounds like the record. I'm not putting that as a fault upon any of the previous drummers, but I'm putting that as a fault of the previous three lineups.

"At each point in time, we had to make a drummer change because our band either wasn't able to perform well or create good music or be functional as a unit anymore. So, thankfully with someone like Paul who comes to the table with a full set of musical pedigree, it allows us to play anything.

"We're playing music from records two-seven now. I finally retrained myself how to scream again, so everything is exactly how it was." Read more here.
