recently met bassist Paolo Gregoletto and guitarist Corey Beaulieu of Florida metallers TRIVIUM on their current tour and asked them to name their top three favorites in a number of categories, including records, drinks, movies and books. Check out the responses below.

Drummer Alex Bent made his live debut with TRIVIUM on February 11 at the Academy in Dublin, Ireland.

Bent has played with BATTLECROSS and DECREPIT BIRTH in the past and has filled in for Gene Hoglan in TESTAMENT at a number of shows. He is also a member of TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson‘s DRAGONLORD project, whose long-awaited third album, “Dominion”, is expected to arrive later this year.

Alex was recruited by TRIVIUM last November after the band fired its drummer of eleven months, Paul Wandtke.

TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy later said in a Metal Insider interview that the band’s last three drummers were merely “session” musicians.

Wandtke made his live debut with TRIVIUM in December 2015 at Knotfest in Mexico. A short time later, he appeared in an official promotional photo with the three core members of the band.

Paul joined the Florida outfit on the recommendation of DREAM THEATER‘s Mike Mangini and replaced Mat Madiro, who departed due to reasons of “creativity.”

Madiro was the featured drummer on TRIVIUM‘s latest album, “Silence In The Snow”, which was released in October 2015 via Roadrunner.
