KikoLoureiro-DaveMustaineMegadeth‘s Dave Mustaine and Kiko Loureiro recently stopped by the Guitar World studio to play through the band’s new song ‘Fatal Illusion’. Check out the footage below.

In a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie, Mustaine spoke about his relationship with Loureiro, best known for his work with Angra. He said: “Well, I think when you get around somebody that’s great, you have a few choices. You can either roll up into a ball and just die, or you can see what you can learn, or you can say, ‘You know what? I’m as good as you are.’ And I’m good at what I do, Kiko‘s good at what he does.”

He continued: “It was super exciting to be in [Kiko‘s] presence and to learn a lot of the stuff that he does. I showed him some stuff, he showed me some stuff. But I’ve gotta tell you, probably the most rewarding feeling out of all this is having a partner again. Because for a long time, it hasn’t really felt like there was a partnership.” Continue reading »

megadeth2015Fan-filmed video footage of Megadeth‘s October 16 performance in Perth, Australia can be seen below. The concert marked Megadeth‘s second show with its new lineup, featuring Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler, and Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with Angra.

In an interview with Music Feeds conducted right before the Perth show, Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine stated about the band’s new lineup: “If you were going into a pub and someone said, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go see this band that’s only played together twice,’ you’d say, ‘Fuck that!’ right? So the excitement on our side is really high because we’ve got something to prove. But then at the same time we don’t have anything to prove. [Laughs]”

He continued: “The irony of us being able to have it both ways, you know, to have that feeling of exuberance and want to go out there and just nail it, but then also knowing that — you know — all those years of hard luck and having a really loving, intimate relationship with your fanbase has made it so that you can do these things.” Continue reading »
