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

"I thought I would let you all know that I just arrived home from the recording sessions in L.A. and all went very very well! Working with Jeff Balding and Dave [Mustaine] was great and the whole experience was so much fun and very productive. Shawn [Drover, drums] was there for the sessions as well, which was very good for me, as I like to bounce solo ideas off of him along the way. This is something we have been doing for many years. James [Lomenzo, bass] was also there for a few sessions, which was also very cool!

"As for big bad Dave, wait 'till you hear his guitar solo work. it's awesome!! Also, Dave is now in full vocal mode and things should be wrapped up pretty soon...

"Aside from all of this, We now look foward to the Spanish festivals next month. Can't wait!!!!!"

MEGADETH's as-yet-untitled Roadrunner Records debut is being recorded under the watchful eye of Mustaine and co-producer Jeff Balding. The initial studio sessions — held at Sarm Studios, outside of London — were filmed by director Michael Sarna (ANTHRAX, OBITUARY) and are available at to fan-club members.

MEGADETH's last CD, "The System Has Failed", has sold more than 180,000 copies since its September 2004 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group, who were most recently signed to Sanctuary Records, were joined by bassist James Lomenzo (ex-BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITE LION) in February following the departure of James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH).
