Since climbing out of a volcano in 2008, shrouded in metal and ash, Lords of the Trident have gone to battle on many stages across the USA, playing and headlining a plethora of festivals and have an admirable arsenal of recordings in their inventory. The Lords of The Trident have released three full albums: “Death or Sandwich” (2009), “Chains on Fire” (2011), “Frostburn” (2015) , three EPs: “Plan of Attack” (2013), “A Very Lords of the Trident Christmas” (2014), “Re:Quests” (2015), and two live DVDs, along with numerous compilation singles.

Their live shows include medieval costumes, pyrotechnics, confetti cannons, guitars set ablaze, and of course, excellent technical musicianship that challenges the standard for how live music should be experienced. Citing influences such as Iron Maiden, Scar Symmetry and Judas Priest, and embracing lyrical themes inspired by great battles, conquests, dragon-fighting, virtual reality, and out-of-control robots Lords of the Trident dish out face-melting power that is enjoyed by fans of all races and classes.


LORDS OF THE TRIDENT drummer Master Hercule “Herc” Schlagzeuger has put together a drum playthrough for the band’s track“Reaper’s Hourglass” being premiered on The song is off the American power metallers latest and 7th studio album“Shadows From The Past” released this past August.

“Thanks for taking a look my playthrough of Reapers Hourglass! For those of you who are gear-minded (and let’s face it, who ISN’T): My main kit is a Gretsch Renown and cymbals are a mix of Sabian and Zildjian. This is one of the more technical songs off our new album “Shadows From The Past”, but also my favorite to play. The song is SO technical, in fact, that I routinely have to manifest a wall of drum equipment to contain the sonic force!” says Schlagzeuger.

Watch drummer Master Hercule “Herc” Schlagzeuger boast an impressive stamina, following the gallops on the guitar throughout the entire song while holding down solid snare and cymbal work at the following link:
