Music career

He joined Trivium on December 5, 2015, by playing a debut show in front of 40,000 people in Mexico at Slipknot's "Knotfest" Festival. He was referred to Trivium via Dream Theater's Mike Mangini when Trivium had asked John Petrucci if they knew any drummers they could check out for a new replacement. In early 2017, Wandtke left Trivium.

In 2017, Wandtke launched the band Bedlem with lead vocalist Mike Petrasek, lead guitarist Joey Trace Brassal and bassist Brian Ahern after his departure from Trivium. Bedlem released their debut single "Triumph" on February 6, 2017. Their debut album was released on October 31, 2018.

He also sings and plays guitar for a national touring Nirvana tribute band called Smells Like Nirvana, which is based in Chicago and have performed fly-in casino dates as well as many midwest dates with plans to do some tours in 2017. Paul Wandtke has said that Nirvana is the reason he got into music so that's why Smells Like Nirvana was created, also because it was an attempt to gain some experience as a frontman to later start his own original band.
