MEGADETH bassist James Lomenzo has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:"Thought I'd take a moment out and say a big hello to you all from the studio out here in beautiful Hooks End and let you know how fantastic everything's been going. Shawn's [Drover] drum tracks are complete and they're just stunning! Big and bold, thanks to Jeff Balding's skilled engineering. I'm really digging the bass tones he's dialing up for me as well. Jeff's got a great combination of old school and new technology experience that really suits MEGADETH. I've got two more tracks of bass and my parts are pretty well done, then I'm off to the London Guitar Show at this weeks end to support my friends at Ashdown Engineering (the fellows who make my great bass amps). If you're at the show stop on by, I'd love to meet you." MEGADETH's appearance at this year's Desert Rock 2006 festival on March 16 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates marked their debut performance with Lomenzo, who has previously played with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and WHITE LION, among others. Lomenzo joined MEGADETH as the replacement for James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH), who parted ways with the group in early February.
