MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has joined forces with former ANTHRAX guitarist Dan Spitz in a brand new project called RED LAMB. The band's debut release, which will consist largely of the music Spitz previously recorded under the DEUXMONKEY banner with vocalist Wade Black (CRIMSON GLORY, SEVEN WITCHES, LEATHERWOLF), ACCEPT bassist Peter Baltes and drummer Patrick Johansson (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, W.A.S.P.), will be mixed by Johnny K (full name: John Karkazis; DISTURBED, SEVENDUST, MACHINE HEAD, STAIND).

Black announced his departure from DEUXMONKEY in April, explaining that the band's "songs were not up to my standards." He added that he gave Spitz "a verbal cease-and-desist on all my lyrics and vocals" in order to ensure that Wade's contributions would be completely wiped off the project's debut release.

In a December 2010 interview, Mustaine revealed that he helped fine-tune the songs on DEUXMONKEY's debut album after hearing some of the material in its early stages of development.

"[Dan] was working on a little side project, and I'd heard it a while ago and it kind of went by in passing 'cause he was just starting it," Mustaine said. "And I heard it about three weeks ago; he was almost done. And I said, 'Man, I love this record.' I said, 'And do you think it's done?' And he goes, 'Yeah.' And he goes, 'Why? What do you think?' And I said, 'Well, I would kind of do this and that.' And he goes, 'Really? Go ahead.' And I went, 'Really?' So I rolled up my sleeves and I completely dedicated myself to Danny's record for the last three weeks, working tirelessly in my studio on this record with him. And it's that good. I heard it and I just went, 'Oh my God!' It's like a cross between, say, DISTURBED, SOUNDGARDEN and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE kind of thing. Little bit of some smatterings of ANTHRAX because of the speed stuff, but it's much more modern and much more heavy sounding."

They don't make it clear who the vocalist is gonna be, i'm guessing Mustaine but they don't say.

Unless he had a major change of heart, I don't think Mustaine would be in a band where he doesn't sing and play guitar.

Well that was about Deuxmonkey. This band will probably sound different since Mustaine is involved.

I did, and I'll listen to this too if it's going to be heavy and grooving. If it's going to be heavy and boring (Disturbed), I probably won't like it.

The other half of this news is Megadeth are also about to start recording their next album, also with Johnny K producing, for release in the last quarter of 2011 through Roadrunner. Apparently Sneap was going to produce, but scheduling conflicts have meant he's had to pull out.

Hopefully it will be less convoluted and more song-based than the last one.

Me neither. Although I love Mustaine, I don't like any of those bands.

Agree. I thought Endgame was BLAND.

:tp: At least listen to it before you write it off....

It sounds like Mustaine just came in and tweaked a bunch of stuff though, so who knows.

Endgame was a great album though. :rocker:

Yes, it was. It gets way more hate than it deserves.

And what's all this about Disturbed being "heavy?"

This. I think it was their best since Countdown.

And what's all this about Disturbed being "heavy?"

:lol: I was thinking the same thing.

It would have been had it been instrumental instead of a convoluted diatribe loosely associated with the background music.

Other than Youthanasia, I'd probably agree.

Youthanasia has always been underrated.

Yes, it has. It's probably the biggest issue I have with most Megadeth fans. Endgame being the second biggest.
