The suspense is over.
Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro has joined Megadeth.
He also plays in the band Angra, as you well know.
Says Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine:
“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!’”
Kiko will soon join Muscatine, Dave Ellefson, and Lamb of God’s Chris Adler in a recording studio to work on the next Megadeth record.
I need to start listening to Angra more.
