Former MEGADETH Guitarist GLEN DROVER Collaborates With METALIUM Singer HENNING BASSE On 'Seven Spirits' Single

Canadian guitarist Glen Drover (MEGADETH, KING DIAMOND, EIDOLON) has completed work on the final mix for his upcoming single "Seven Spirits". He states: "This time around, the singer that I have collaborated with is Henning Basse, from the German band METALIUM.

"I have wanted to do something with Henning since hearing the first METALIUM album years ago, so I'm very excited about this release!

"If you have never heard of METALIUM, do yourself a favour and check them out!! They have many great albums to choose from.

"I have NOT decided on a release date for this new single, but I can tell you that it will only be available through digital download, and will be available very soon."

Drover is holding a contest for artwork for "Seven Spirits".

Says Glen: "Submit your artwork ideas and the winner gets to have their artwork on my new single coming out soon... a good reference for style and look for what im looking for is the artwork that was done for the 'Walls Of Blood' single, released last October. Keep in mind the title 'Seven Spirits'. The artwork should reflect that..."

Glen Drover recently said that that was "no chance" he would ever return to the band, explaining that he has "other cool things coming up."

Drover left MEGADETH in 2007 and was replaced by Chris Broderick, who himself exited the band in late November, along with Glen's brother, drummer Shawn Drover.

Writing on his Facebook page, Glen said: "I'm very sorry, but to those who want to see me back in MEGADETH, that will never happen. Other cool things coming up. Again, sorry, but there is NO chance I would ever do that. Now saying all of that, thanks a ton for all of your awesome support and it was fun while I was there playing all those cool shows and meeting a lot of you!"

Asked if his desire to spend time more time with his family was the reason he left MEGADETH in 2007, Glen told the "Metal Attack MTL" radio show: "No, not necessarily. I mean, it was part of that, but there was a lot of turmoil going on in the band while I was there, and it wasn't as much fun. See, the first couple of years in MEGADETH, it was a lot of fun — it was a very healthy atmosphere — but towards the end it wasn't, and I think that kind of magnified the fact that I didn't wanna be a part of that kind of destructive kind of atmosphere, and I wanted to be at home with my family and then stage the next plan of attack for the next project, whatever that may be."

Glen's debut solo album, "Metalusion", was released in April 2011 via Magna Carta Records.

On September 25, 2011, Drover took part in a "historic" performance that was webcast worldwide as part of the "Live At Metalworks" series from Mississauga, Canada.

Glen's "Live At Metalworks" performance was released as a DVD via Magna Carta.
