MEGADETH Guitarist Offers Recording Update

MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover has posted the following message on the band's page:

"At this point, I'm not really sure exactly when i will be shipped over to L.A. to record all of my guitar tracks [for the new MEGADETH album], but in the meantime, I have just started to demo bits and pieces here at home in my most comfortable studio!! Dave [Mustaine, MEGADETH mainman] has been sending me charts (as we call them) that indicate where vocals, solos, etc. etc. will be placed in the songs. This is a very good thing for me, as I can really become familiar with the spots and develop a good feel for the sections. In other words, I will be ready when it's time to lay my tracks down!"

As previously reported, MEGADETH have signed to Roadrunner Records for the release of their upcoming album. The studio sessions — held at Sarm Studios, outside of London — were filmed by director Michael Sarna (ANTHRAX, OBITUARY) and are available at to fan-club members.

MEGADETH's last CD, "The System Has Failed", came out in September 2004. The group, who were most recently signed to Sanctuary Records, were joined by bassist James Lomenzo (ex-BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITE LION) in February following the departure of James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH).
