Drummer Nick Augusto didn’t waste any time after being unceremoniously ditched mid-tour by his former teammates TRIVIUM. Returning home to Boca Raton, Florida, he immediately started working on a new project with his high school buddy and guitar aficionado Christopher Cussell (BEFORE THE MOURNING). After a couple of months locked in at the jam room, they’d hammered out what would be the skeleton for their first recording.
To fill in the gaps, the guys looked to an unlikely place; across the Atlantic Ocean, to Oslo, Norway. As chance would have it, both Augusto and Cussell had on separate occasions toured alongside Norwegian metal band INSENSE and a friendship had formed with vocalist and guitarist Tommy Hjelm (INSENSE, BEATEN TO DEATH).
Not one to let a good idea pass, Hjelm flew over to Florida to reconnect and record his guitars and bass. The chemistry was immediate, the band was a fact. With the important addition of Tommy's good friend and brother in arms Martin Rygge (INSENSE, BEATEN TO DEATH),the unit was complete.
The new band, dubbed CORROSION, recently recorded a debut EP with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA).
The first track from the effort is expected to make its online debut shortly.
