Megadeth’s Loureiro shares Silent Night

Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro has recorded an acoustic version of Silent Night to celebrate Christmas.

The Angra member was confirmed as replacement for Chris Broderick in April, while Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler came on board in a guest role.

Mainman Dave Mustaine said in July: “Finding Kiko was really a mind-blower. It was the first time since Marty Friedman joined the band that I was really intimidated as a player.”

Loureiro says: “Merry Christmas! Peace and harmony to everyone!”

Megadeth will release 15th album Dystopia on January 22 and tour North America the following month, with Adler confirmed to be behind the kit for all dates.

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, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories 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.
