Megadeth Officially Welcome Angra’s Kiko Loureiro As Their New Guitarist


Both of the recent lineup rumors for Megadeth have proven true as the group have now confirmed the addition of Angra‘s Kiko Loureiro to their lineup. Dave Mustaine said of the addition:

“I first met Kiko around 8 years ago for a cover shoot for Burrn! magazine. I had no idea who he was, other than the fact he was tremendously talented and that the staff from Burrn! held him in high regard. Since then I’ve come to see what a guitar virtuoso he is, and I’m deeply encouraged by his depth and talent. Very few Megadeth alumni have had the same feel and ability as Kiko. As Frank Sinatra says, “the best is yet to come!” –Dave Mustaine

Megadeth also recently confirmed that Lamb Of God‘s Chris Adler will be handling the studio drumming on their new album. Recording sessions for that album are expected to commence early this month.
