Glen Drover unleashes his NEW instrumental masterpiece on Magna Carta Records, April 5th to the world. Drover’s extraordinary talent of arranging/composing lends to the new music’s fresh melodies for songs that shows his true diversity and only in Glen Drover’s musical notes will you understand:



Members: Glen Drover – Guitars, Jim Gilmour – Keyboards, Paul Yee – Bass,Chris Sutherland – Drums

With the release of his solo debut, Metalusion, guitarist Glen Dover, best known for his precision and power playing with headbanger stalwarts Megadeth and Eidolon, blends the technically demanding musicianship that typified the classic jazz-rock genre with the venom and attack of modern metal.

The instrumental, 10-track Metalusion, featuring five original compositions and metallic- edged interpretations of material composed by rock and jazz-rock giants Frank Zappa, Al DiMeola and Jean-Luc Ponty, melds the robust properties of distinct sonic strains that reveals a new and mysterious element on the periodic table of musical genres.

Metalusion presents a side of Drover’s musical identity that the metal community has rarely witnessed, while boasting diverse yet highly cohesive tracks. “Each song should sound as though it was meant to be included on the record,” says Drover. “Nothing should seem as though it’s out of place.”

Assisting Drover with forging a perfect musical balance is Canadian multi-instrumentalist and bassist Paul Yee (who co-engineered the record), drummer Chris Sutherland (Kim Mitchell), Saga’s Jim Gilmour on keyboards and a number of special guests, including Nevermore’s power metal/prog metal guitarist Jeff Loomis, Opeth’s and Talisman’s ass-kicking axe man Fredrik Åkesson, veteran Steve Smyth of the Bay Area’s rejuvenated Forbidden, Ohm’s guitar maven and erstwhile Megadeth genius Chris Poland and classical metal master Vinnie Moore of UFO.

Glen Drover is regarded internationally as one of the greatest players in the industry. Starting his recording career playing with such bands as Testament, King Diamond and of course let’s not forget the multi-platinum award-winning metal band Megadeth. Drover remains one of the most active guitarists in the shred guitar scene today. His rise to Platinum success and cult status with founding member Dave Mustaine of the legendary and highly successful progressive metal band Megadeth proves Glen Drover’s has got what it takes to explore the outer limits of extreme instrumental music.

In 2004, just as the sparkle of hope glowed dim, Dave Mustaine struck back with the excellent new album ‘The System Has Failed’, which especially after the less than stellar ‘The World Needs A Hero’ release, was a most welcome return to the high standard of song writing that we’ve come to expect from Dave. After the album release Mustaine surprisingly announced that the forth coming tour will be definitely be their last ever. Now they are now midst of their farewell tour called "Blackmail The Universe" and we were lucky to witness bands brilliant performance in Stockholm.
