Megadeth are sharing a series of photos from the recording studio as the band works on its 15th album with new guitarist Kiko Loureiro and guest drummer Chris Adler from Lamb Of God.
Images include shots of Louriero at work on his own (“Practicing! Never enough...”) and with leader Dave Mustaine, a look at the former Angra axeman’s guitars, and a pile of shredded drumsticks (“Ya think Chris Adler is working hard enough on the new album?”).
Loureiro joined the group following last fall’s departure of Chris Broderick, while Shawn Drover has been replaced by Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler as a guest player on the follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider.”
Megadeth recently launched a PledgeMusic campaign to provide the opportunity to bring fans into the recording process with a list of incentive packages.
“Pre-order the album digitally, on CD or on vinyl plus tons of other unique offerings like signed CDs, signed vinyl, gear from the studio and much more,” says the group. “No matter what you order, you will get access to a variety of behind-the-scenes content such as photos and videos from the writing and recording sessions. You’ll get full access to the process in real time.”
