2017 Grammy Winning Album On Vinyl LP
2017 Grammy Award:
• Best Metal Performance
Produced by Dave Mustaine and Toby Wright, Dystopia is the first album from
Megadeth since the 2013 "Super Collider". The album includes the new line-up
featuring drummer Chris Adler and guitarist Kiko Loureiro.
It is the first album since 2004's "The System Has Failed" to not feature Shawn
Drover on drums. Also of note, the album does not include Chris Broderick on
guitar. The new lineup includes Lamb of Dog drummer Chris Adler and Angra
guitarist Kiko Loureiro.
The song "Poisonous Shadows" features piano playing from Kiko as well as
orchestration from famed Nashville arranger Ronn Huff, the father of former
Megadeth producer Dann Huff. Mustaine described the track to Rolling Stone as
"a really haunting piece" and added that "the part that (Kiko) played is
very Chopin-meets-Megadeth, if that makes sense."
