Det är nu bekräftat att Chris Adler (Lamb Of God) kommer att ta över trumstockarna i bandet.
Det har tidigare under mars månad florerat rykten om att Chris Adler från LAMB OF GOD skulle medverka på MEGADETH’s kommande album. Frontmannen Dave Mustaine har nu bekräftat ryktena om att det är Chris Adler som ska ta över trummorna efter Shawn Drover.
Dave Mustaine: “Chris is a tremendous talent, and an amazing person. He is going to bring a new level of excitement and energy to Megadeth that the fans are going to lose their minds over. I have nothing but respect for my previous drummers, but this is going to absolutely KILL! Back in 1989, Megadeth originally worked as a three piece — guitar, bass and drums — when we laid down the framework to our Grammy-nominated platinum album Rust in Peace. I want to thank the other members of Lamb Of God for allowing this opportunity to take place for all of us in the metal community.”
David Ellefson tillägger: “Chris has been an endearing friend to us in Megadeth for many years now, and he truly appreciates our music and its legacy. His drumming has forged such an innovative and ferocious path for metal music and I’m very proud that he is anchoring our rhythm section with us on this new album. I can clearly see a new dawn of ‘utmost heaviness’ unfolding in Megadeth’s next chapter.”
