Tour de Force

Trivium, DevilDriver, After the Burial and Sylosis Will Tour North America


Trivium Devildriver

Lambgoat’s got the scoop on the following tour: Trivium, DevilDriver, After the Burial and Sylosis will head criss-cross North America together this fall.

Is it odd that I’d be most excited to see the first two bands on this bill? I’ve seen Sylosis twice — once headlining the small Studio at Webster Hall in NYC, sans a guitarist, and then opening for Lamb of God a few months later — and they have positively KILLED both times. I mean like really killed, insanely tight, the kind of band that makes other bands look sloppy without even trying that hard. After the Burial are a great live act, at least if you like DAT BOUNCE! OG Sumeriancore at its finest, a welcome sight since Sumerian Records has been dropping Sumeriancore bands lately.

As for Trivium, I like ’em more than your average metal bear does, but live they have never been a GREAT act (good… sure… and much better since Nick Augusto joined). I put DevilDriver in the same boat; solid band, absolutely, but I’ve never heard anyone say, “Wow, that DevilDriver show was INCREDIBLE, I can’t wait to see them again!”
