Nick Augusto was an unknown quantity when he took over the Trivium drum stool in 2010. To the outside world, the new guy seemed to have materialised out of nowhere.
However, Nick had previously been working with Trivium behind the scenes as a drum tech, although his connection to the band ran much deeper than that.
Nick and bassist Paulo Gregoletto were old friends who grew up playing in bands together since they were teenagers. After his baptism by fire on the road, Nick cut his first album with his new band-mates, In Waves.
