Nick Augusto (born 4 August 1986) is an American drummer, best known as the former drummer of heavy metal band Trivium, in which he played from 2009 to 2014.


He replaced Travis Smith on 4 February 2010.[1] Since joining Trivium, Augusto has recorded: "Shattering the Skies Above"—which featured on the God of War: Blood & Metal EP— a cover of Sepultura's "Slave New World", In Waves.[2] and the bands latest album, Vengeance Falls. Before joining Trivium, Augusto was the drummer for the Floridian grindcore band Maruta,[3] as well as Metal Militia, in which he played with Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto. According to Gregoletto, Nick had been friends with the band for some time: "The first time I ever rehearsed was at Nick's house."[citation needed]

According to Metal Hammer Magazine and Paolo Gregoletto of Trivium, he goes by the stage alias "Daddy Magnum".

On May 7, 2014, it was announced that Trivium had parted ways with Nick during their tour with Volbeat, with a statement from Gregoletto citing offstage differences between Matt, Corey and Paolo, and Nick.

On October 2014, Nick announced through his official Twitter account that he would be recording his next project with producer Jason Suecof in November of that year.

Nick uses Pearl and DW bass drum pedals. He also uses Pro-Mark drumsticks (Millennium II American Hickory 5B with nylon tip).
