MEGADETH bassist James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH) has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"We all fly home today of course to be with our families, leaving the Killing Road for a bit. We have a huge family of Droogs all around the world.

"Like I said in my previous post, this has been an awesome tour and a truly amazing experience. Now it's time to regroup and get ready for the next endeavor, this next album will kick some major butt. A new MEGADETH with the old sincerity.

"THANKS again my friends. I'll catch up in a couple of weeks with many new pics for you to check out, spanning the last few months or so.

"Stay metal and be safe!"

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine announced at the conclusion of the band's headlining performance in Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 9 that the group's current lineup — which includes MacDonough, drummer Shawn Drover (EIDOLON) and guitarist Glen Drover (EIDOLON) — will continue to record and tour under the name MEGADETH.

MEGADETH have just completed a South American tour in support of "The System Has Failed", which came out in September 2004. The latest MEGADETH release, "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" (Capitol), entered the Billboard chart at No. 65 and has sold 98,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

I've been waiting for the return of Thrash for a long f u c k i n' time!
Now somebody needs to go kick Metallica in their a s s e s and get them back on track!
Some bands like Metal Church and Savatage have lost original members to death, and it's hard to say if they can ever make a comeback with their music. I predict some of the new metal bands are going to Thrash soon. At least I hope so. If anybody can lead the way back to Thrash then it's Dave.
