Black metal horde TRIDENT will play their first show in North America this Saturday, October 2nd in Brooklyn, New York. The Swedish five-piece will devastate NYC-area diehards at this special one-off appearance at Club Europa. This will be the only North American live action for TRIDENT for 2010, but is just a taste of what is to come. Stated bassist Alexander Friberg on the concert “We are proud to finally be able to show people of NY the might of the TRIDENT, and all of you should be prepared to face a storm of Nordic rage!”
TRIDENT vs. America:
10/2/2010 Club Europa – Brooklyn, NY w/ Immolith, Evoken
TRIDENT are supporting their debut full-length World Destruction, a total sonic whirlwind of blistering, blackened death metal. The 10-track album was recorded at Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden with engineers Andy LaRocque (King Diamond) and Nico Elgstrand (Entombed) at the helm. The TRIDENT lineup features metallians Johan Norman (Soul Reaper, Dissection) and Ewo Solvelius on guitars, Alexander Friberg (Necrophobic, Karneywar) on bass, Tobias Sidegård (Necrophobic) on vocals and Jonas Blom (Grief of Emerald) handling drum duty.
The first video from World Destruction is set to be released shortly, filmed for the blistering track “Jaws Of Satan.” A trailer for the video is available here:
Interviews with TRIDENT are available in-person at the NYC show or via email/phone anytime. Stay tuned for more updates on this primal Swedish act, hell-bent on World Destruction!!
“Anytime a former member of Dissection’s The Somberlain lineup is involved in the creation of a new album heads are bound to turn… your only defense is to thrust your fists and horns skyward and scream along with this Swede-metal anthem…” – Hails & Horns
“Put simply, World Destruction is also an album made of many super cool parts – riffs, leads, rhythmic punches. At nearly every turn is a grisly accident scene worth rubber necking for.” – Metal Army America
“Overall this is a pretty intense and crushing debut with the combined years of experience and quality brought to the picture by the collective of veterans. For something so harsh this is very listenable.” 4/5 – Metal-Rules
