A true spectacle to be witnessed, LORDS OF THE TRIDENT is a daring adventure metal quintet that has been delighting their audiences and fans all over the world for ten years. Continuing their epic quest of bringing spectacular and entertaining metal to global fans these power metal warriors released their latest album “Shadows From The Past” this past August. In continuing support of their 7th studio album, these American power metallers are premiering their fifth music video “Death Dealer”. The footage for the music video was shot during the band’s March 2018 TRIDENTour, which included stops in Lexington, KY, Charlotte and Chapel Hill, NC, and Cincinnati, OH.
Vocalist Fang VonWrathenstein adds:
“Almost every house we stayed at had very friendly cats who DEMANDED to be included in the video as well. You’ll also notice that Albus Dumblepurr, the most FAMOUS of the power metal cats, also makes an appearance. I’ll admit, we were all a little starstruck upon meeting him.”

In additional news, the band recently released their limited edition Blood Red Vinyl for “Shadows From The Past”, which is a dual vinyl, 45RPM that comes with a Gatefold Booklet with artwork/lyric insert along with a 320kbps MP3 download card. It is exclusively available on the band’s website here.
“This is our FIRST vinyl release, and we’re incredibly excited to finally have this available! Fun fact: since this is the first press, instead of red dye, we used the blood of the unworthy who were slain at our concerts! Gives it a little extra touch!” says vocalist Fang VonWrathenstein.

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.
