MEGADETH: More Concert DVD Details Revealed

According to a posting on MEGADETH's official web site, the band's forthcoming DVD will contain a complete concert recorded on May 20, 2008 at the Cox Arena in San Diego during this year's Gigantour. The other acts on the bill — IN FLAMES, CHILDREN OF BODOM, JOB FOR A COWBOY and HIGH ON FIRE — were apparently offered a chance to be part of the DVD but declined.

MEGADETH will embark on the "Priest Feast" European tour with headliners JUDAS PRIEST and openers TESTAMENT in February 2009.

According to a posting on MEGADETH's web site, acclaimed British record producer/engineer Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, NEVERMORE, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY) arrived late last month to meet up with MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and the crew at the band's new studio near San Diego, California. The studio is being custom-built to record the next MEGADETH album and more.

Sneap produced MEGADETH's last album, "United Abominations", which came out in May 2007 via Roadrunner Records.

MEGADETH's forthcoming CD will be the group's first with guitarist Chris Broderick (NEVERMORE, JAG PANZER), who replaced Glen Drover at the end of last year.
