Former Megadeth drummer Shawn Drover checks in with the following update on his new band with Megadeth bandmate, guitarist Chris Broderick and ex-Scar The Martyr vocalist Henry Derek Bonner (pictured above):
"Happy Holidays, everybody!! It seems time for an update, don’t you think...
At this point I can reveal to you that Chris Broderick and myself have the “music" for our debut record written - Henry Bonner is our singer, who has sang on six songs in demo form at this point, to which its all sounding 100% HEAVY METAL. Some of the song’s are very aggressive and fast, other’s are more “accessible” to the average heavy metal listener.
I don’t like to label everything into the 100 sub-genres of metal. To me, Accept is pure heavy metal, yet so is King Diamond and Gojira - do they sound the same?? NO, but they are all METAL!! Chris, Henry and myself are all fans of all kinds of heavy music, which is great, as we are not putting any musical parameters on what we are creating here, which is very liberating, I must say.
There is still a TON of great thing’s going on that we cannot reveal at this point... Just know that we are all working hard to bring you the best heavy metal music we can. For the time being, I hope all of you have a great Holiday season."
Stay tuned for updates.
