Megadeth's Endgame Updates

Megadeth's new upcoming album "Endgame" has won the 'editors soundcheck' of German monthly metal rag, Rock Hard magazine and is featured as 'album of the month' in the September issue.

This album also was appraised track by track by To quote some of the appraised:


Doesn't Mustaine just love this kind of subject matter? A regime inflicting a brutal new world order on innocent civilians etc - it's probably a bit like being in his band. "Attention! Attention! All citizens report to your district detention centres" says the goon with the megaphone before we get a satisfyingly chuggy riffscape straight from the late 80s. Again the latter part of the song involves the accelerator being buried directly to the floor amid guitar hero meltdown.


Having been touted around for weeks now this, the first single, is a perfectly acceptable, straight-ahead metal track which in truth is one of the album's highlights; fast, power-metal that's a bit like 'Painkiller' era Judas Priest. It's as uncompromising and unintelligent as the title suggests. Mustaine's snarl is the key here as only he could deliver this with such vitriol, and there's more intense playing too as he and Broderick trade lead breaks. It's a welcome return to no-nonsense, well produced technical metal and a good advert for where Megadeth are at at this point.

Nothing Left To Lose

An ominously rumbling bass intro ushers in a rather predictable and plain riff that makes a lot of fuss about going precisely nowhere. Yet true to form, Megadeth rescue the track: the tempo builds to a frenetic conclusion of both track and a surprisingly sturdy album.

This new album will be available worldwide on September 15, a countdown counter

Slash's new album will out next year

Recent update from Slash revealed that his solo album will only available next year, the album which will enter the mixing process in September is really great & deserves tour support according to him.

Slash wrote:

Hey all, hope you're all good. I'm long between blogs, I know.

Anyway, I don't know how I'm supposed to wait until next year to put out this record! It is so fucking cool & I am so anxious to get it out already. We start mixing soon & that will be that, ready to go. But, I have to wait, there's no way around it, for all kinds of logistic reasons & that's the reality.

But, my VR bandmates & I had a meeting a couple of weeks ago & although the search for a singer will continue, I am going to tour on my solo record most likely thru next summer starting in March or April. We (VR) will keep the word of mouth system going & listening to submissions from singers & checking out different singer's sites etc, we know the right guy is out there somewhere. It's possible somebody could turn up before I do my tour & we could start working on new material sooner than later, in a perfect world.

As far as my tour is concerned, I have already started to put together ideas for a kickass band & the plan is to perform some new stuff, Snakepit, VR & Guns stuff. The new album is really great & deserves that I should support it. Plus, I'm really looking forward to getting out there & doing some gigs, its been more than a year since I was on a proper tour & all these one off jams are basically just a tease.

So, there's the update for now, I'm still tinkering away on the solo record but there really isn't much left to do on it but mix it, which starts in September.

Cool, Take care, talk to you soon,

Iiiiii||; ),

Kiko Loureiro | Coca-Cola Guitar Fest

Angra's guitarist Kiko Loureiro has posted new update about Coca-Cola Guitar Fest, in his blog Kiko wrote:

I delayed a little to postar link. They forgive.
In June I was for Chile to touch in Coca-Cola Guitar Fest.
The Festival, beyond my presence, counted on the most known guitarist, Alejandro Silva and a competition for guitaristas Chilean.

The video shows as well as was the event, also my face of suffering trying to say the language of the Kiko of the Keys.

The edition is excellent, only lacked my initiative to touch an Underwear ad-lib, where galera all in unison beat palms in accompaniment.

PS: For the uninformed musical comedies: Underwear is the most traditional Chilean rhythm: )

Of direct Kiev to the paulistano chaos and route to the Maceió.
