Megadeth ex Chris Poland joins Menza and Lomenzo

Former Megadeth men Nick Mezna and James Lomenzo have added Chris Poland to the lineup of their latest project.

The drummer and bassist started working together earlier this year. Now they’ve confirmed guitarist Poland began rehearsals with them this weekend.

Menza’s website reports: “Chris, best known for his work on Megadeth’s first two albums, has been confirmed as lead axeman for the as-yet unnamed project.

“Poland already has six heavy original songs in the can that we can start working on.”

The trio never worked together in Dave Mustaine’s outfit – Poland left in 1987, Menza joined in 1989 and stared for nine years, while Lomenzo was a member between 2006 and 2010.

They’re planning to release an EP early next year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
