Shattered Sun’s drummer Robert Garza just wrapped a tour with thrash metal bands Testament and Exodus and will be on tour with headliners Slayer and others during this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Garza’s raw beats are clean and technical; no need for triggers with this guy! Shattered Sun is heavy and melodic at the same time.

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 fourty seven on Billboard’s Top New Artist chart. He sent us links to these live clips as well as a kit overview.
