MEGADETH Drummer Says Work On New Album Is Moving Along At 'Very Productive Pace'

MEGADETH drummer Shawn Drover has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"Just returned from the L.A. tracking trip, and I must say that [work on the new studio album is] moving along at a very good and productive pace. Glen [Drover, guitar] worked very long hours for four days straight, but the results were certainly worth the borderline delerium that was slowly starting to creep in to Glen's melon (which is always mildly amusing for me to watch — not so much fun to partake in though). My turn is approaching quickly so I think I will retract from any further comments

"Some cool things are heading my way in relation to the studio/drum recordings, but I won't divulge this infomation until it actually does happen — if and when it does indeed happen. Believe me, it is very kick-ass!!!

"All of us are indeed in good spirits and are looking forword to making the best record we can."

MEGADETH's appearance at this year's Desert Rock 2006 festival on March 16 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates marked their debut performance with new bassist James Lomenzo, who has previously played with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and WHITE LION, among others.

Lomenzo joined MEGADETH as the replacement for James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH), who was fired from the group on February 10, 2006 due to "personal differences."
