Rig Rundown: On The Road With Shattered Sun

Shattered Sun’s drummer Robert Garza shared the stage with legendary thrash metal bands Testament and Exodus on his most recent tour and is now going out with headliners Slayers and others on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour.

The band’s on a roll as the latest recording Hope Within Hatred is number one on the CMJ Charts, Top 20 on the iTunes Metal Charts and number forty-seven on Billboard’s Top New Artist chart. He sent us links to this kit overview. For the road he favors an all-business setup that relies on his DW Performance kit with a mix of Zildjian cymbals plus a few interesting additions.
