MEGADETH Drummer Says New Live DVD Should Be Played 'Very, Very Loud!'

February 19, 2007

MEGADETH drummer Shawn Drover has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"So most of you are aware by now that MEGADETH have a new 'live DVD' that is vastly approaching its release date, ('That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires'; March 6th) showcasing not only the band having both a good show and a good time, but as well capturing certainly one of the best audiences I have ever seen - that would be Buenos Aires, Argentina. With this release, the rest of you can also witness the beautiful passion that is the South America heavy metal fan. I am very proud of how all of this was captured on film — watching it now bring back good memories of a very eventful South American tour. My one suggestion to those who do buy this DVD — play it very, very LOUD!!!!!!!! Apart from that, lots of great things in store for MEGADETH for 2007 and beyond. Stay tuned."

A one-minute clip of MEGADETH performing the song "Symphony of Destruction" live at Obras Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 9, 2005 before a rabid audience of over 25,000 fans has been posted online at The Syndicate. The clip is taken from the "That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires" live DVD, due on March 6 via Image Entertainment. The 90-plus minute film features songs encompassing MEGADETH's career, ranging from their 1986 album "Peace Sells…But Who's Buying" through 2004's "The System Has Failed".

"This was one of the greatest nights of my life," says MEGADETH founder and frontman Dave Mustaine. "I am glad I was able to document it and share it with you. 'That One Night' is a lesson in metal fanaticism by some of the best participating, most frenzied, and intense concert-goers in the world! I have waited ten years to show the rest of the world how much MEGADETH and Argentina love each other. If seeing this doesn't convince you how lethal a MEGADETH concert in Argentina with some very close personal friends can be, don't worry…you're already dead."
