Vocalist Fang VonWrathenstein comments:
“The tinder is dry, the gasoline is giving off pleasant fumes, and the cords of wood have been piled high: FINALLY the world is ready for the FIERY EXPLOSION of our new release, Shadows from the Past!! Since we’ve already tested the album on a few human subjects (may they rest in peace), we’d recommend the following: A) find your strongest battle helmet and put it on. B) use at least two layers of chain mail before pressing play, and C) have the nearest plastic surgeon on speed dial, because this new album will almost certainly melt your face off!”
“Shadows From The Past” was supported by a kickstarter campaign that went live on June 1st and ending on June 29th. During that month, the band’s fans helped them surpass their goals to raise over $11,000 for the release. The band offered multiple packages and rewards that included merch, lessons from band members, festival tickets, private concerts and a copy of the video game Coffee Crisis that the band has partnered with to feature one of their songs for one of the levels along with band members as NPCs (non-playable characters).

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.
