Chris Adler of Lamb of God is playing drums on the new Megadeth album. They'll be recording as a three piece: Adler, vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson.
Dave Mustaine comments, “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...
This time around we started writing some songs….even the Smoke EP when I listen to it now I go ‘Maaaan, we settled a lot on this’ even though we are really proud of it. Actually, some of my favorite songs we have ever written are on it. There were a lot of things where we relied on ‘Alright, we need a bridge here. What do we do well?

According to the band's latest press release, Vendetta Red plan to record new music this year to release this summer.
After a premature breakup of 4 years, the band was oddly brought back to life by a cell phone prank. It seems that a collection of mystery fans set it upon themselves to book a fake gig in Seattle for the band. Some members were even living out of state at the time. After a series of confusing texts, a fury of social media interest and massive pre-sale tickets, the members eventually agreed to play. After the sold out show, there was renewed energy and an idea to record together again. The result were two earth shattering, bowel cracking concept EPs entitled "Scripture"...
