Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine will be a featured soloist with the San Diego Symphony in April, 2014 in a program that will include Wagner‘s “Ride Of The Valkyries” from “Die Walküre”, Vivaldi‘s“Winter” from “The Four Seasons” and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 [the “New World” symphony].
Executive director Edward “Ward” Gill said it’s all about reaching new audiences, while music director Jahja Ling said he had a good meeting with Mustaine, and he may conduct the concert himself [no conductor is listed at this point, and Mustaine‘s exact involvement is still being worked out].
Super Collider is scheduled for a June release via Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine‘s new label, Tradecraft, which is distributed by Universal Music Enterprises [UMe]. Mustaine sang the very last note on the album on March 13 at his Vic’s Garage studio in San Marcos, California. Horn player Bob Findley — who previously appeared on the track Silent Scorn from Megadeth‘s 2001 CD, The World Needs A Hero — is a featured guest on the song A House Divided on the new album.
Super Collider is Megadeth‘s first release its recent split with Roadrunner Records.
