Former MEGADETH Members To Premiere New Music On 'Inside Metal' Show

The as-yet-unnamed new "supergroup" featuring former MEGADETH members Chris Poland (guitar), Nick Menza (drums) and James Lomenzo (bass) will make its first public appearance next month on the sixth episode of the brand new Internet TV program "Inside Metal" hosted by Bob Nalbandian.

Tune in on Tuesday, December 9 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. PST to listen to the world premiere of audio samples from the new band's upcoming full-length debut release.

According to Menza, Poland "already has six heavy original songs in the can" that the new group has started working on.

Menza and Lomenzo's first jam session took place on June 25 at Menza's Disintegrator Studios in Studio City, California where they cracked through some of the old MEGADETH catalog along with some of their favorite METALLICA and LED ZEPPELIN songs.

Poland is best known for his work on MEGADETH's first two albums — "Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!" (1985) and "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?" (1986).

Following the reissue of the entire MEGADETH catalog, Menza was invited to reunite with the band in 2004. Days after a reunion was announced, Menza was fired and replaced with Shawn Drover. MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine said that this was because Nick "just wasn't prepared."

Lomenzo joined MEGADETH in 2006 and appeared on two of the group's studio albums, 2007's "United Abominations" and 2009's "Endgame". He was fired from the band in 2010 and replaced with returning original MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson.
