Shawn Drover loves his new album

If you didn’t realize by now, musicians love hyping up their upcoming albums, and things are no different with Shawn Drover of Megadeth. It’s not like he’s biased or anything, but apparently the album is ‘still metal’ and sounds ‘awesome.’

Guys, by the way, we’re gonna write some articles this week, and they will be awesome. I mean, honestly, they’re fucking brilliant. Metal and literally brilliance.

Watch the interview above and then stay tuned for more amazing writing from us. Kings!


Will Diamond Head join The Big Four jam?

I actually wanted to go to Knebworth for Sonisphere, but couldn’t. Man, am I going to regret this…

Diamond Head (whose ‘Am I Evil’ song is usually played when the four bands jam) will play on the same stage as Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica. So will they join the jam at the end?

The video above with David Ellefson and Shawn Drover of Megadeth seems to hint towards that idea. It would be pretty epic indeed, and I don’t see why they wouldn’t.

I hope it will be pro shot so we don’t have to witness it via godawful cellphone footage.

UPDATE: Metallica.com confirms that Brian Tatler of Diamond Head joined the jam.

Speaking of Sonisphere, other musicians playing that festival were asked to pick their favorite Big Four band. Their quotes, after the jump.


What are clinics?

Musical clinics, how do they work? I’ve just read an article about Megadeth drummer Shawn Drover doing drum clinics in November (read the article here) and I realized that I don’t even know what the hell a drum clinic is.

A quick Google search gave me exactly 3 results but maybe I’m just too stupid to properly use Google. Google ain’t rocket science though so “What is a drum clinic” should work, shouldn’t it? Oh well. One of these results was pretty helpful though. Some guy on a forum had the following explanation:

“Firstly if you’ve heard of Drumfest or Drummer live then a clinic is a condensed single drummer version of that. Usually around a couple of hours long, its an opportunity to see high profile or just great players and tap into their experience. Content varies but includes solos, play alongs, occasionally a live band, questions and answers, interaction etc etc. ”

Sounds, well, boring. Who wants to see a drummer solo for a couple of hours? If you want to see this particular drummer in action, why not go to the band’s concerts? Maybe I just don’t get it because I’m not a musician myself though.

So apparently guitar clinics are pretty much the same as drum clinics but guitars are more interesting than drums. So drummers are fucked. Sorry Shawn.
