Ex Megadeth men go prog

Prog metal outfit Redemption will release sixth album The Art Of Loss early next year – featuring guest appearances by three former Megadeth guitarists.

Chris Poland, Marty Freidman and Chris Broderick have recorded parts for the record, to be released via Metal Blade. And the trio can be heard together on the track Thirty Silver.

Guitarist Nick Van Dyk says: “We’re fortunate to have worked with a number of amazing musicians. Chris Poland has lent his immense talent, contributing his unique playing on the majority of songs – and elevating out music into extremely interesting territory.

“Additionally we have mind-blowing guest performances from Marty Friedman, Chris Broderick and Simone Mulanori, all of whom add so much.”

The follow-up to This Mortal Coil also includes vocal tracks from former Anthrax frontman John Bush and Van Dyk’s daughter Parker.

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.
