Megadeth drummer Shawn Drover has issued the following statement about the recording of a new album:

"So now it is official, we have started to record our 12th record yesterday. I laid down drum tracks for the 1st 2 songs, which I am happy to say, turned out quite well. Tuesday was spent changing all my drumheads and getting the best possible drum tone Andy Sneap and myself could, as we are going back to the old school on this in terms of natural drum tone - From this record insepction, I had many conversations with Andy expressing how great so many records sounded back in the day with drum tones, etc. and that we both wanted to get certain aspects of that into what we are doing now. You will hear the results of this when this record is released. Anyways, day 2 will have myself playing song's 3 & 4, (obviously, no song titles as I write this) and if we stay on track, I will have 8 song's completed on drums by weeks end."

Tx -- I highly disagree, but I may be a bit biased because I love Megadeth...

realDethfan -- The pics are loaded straight from the band profile, and deathbringer is far too busy a man to go changing pictures every time a band changes its line-up. Don't worry too much about it, it's just a picture.
