Leave it to metal’s ultimate thrasher, Dave Mustaine, to savagely snatch victory from the seethingly venomous jaws of defeat.
For those who continue to count Megadeth as down and out… think again.
By 7:45 Saturday evening, a faint autumn breeze swirled through Hersheypark Stadium as a sea of impassioned headbangers restlessly waited in anticipation.
For veteran drummer Dirk Verbeuren, the torrid process of promoting his first full-length record with Megadeth has been a labor of love years in the making.
James LoMenzo has been in the music business long enough to know never to say never.
After years spent in his flagship band, Soilwork, in 2016, Verbeuren received the call of a lifetime from Megadeth frontman, and founder, Dave Mustaine. After a short phone conversation, it was decided that Verbeuren would join Megadeth on the road, filling in on drums for the departed Chris Adler, for the band’s Dystopia World Tour.
