#113: Shawn Drover of Act of Defiance (ex-Megadeth)


The MetalSucks Podcast with Chuck and Godless

Act of Defiance

Shawn Drover, ex-drummer of Megadeth and Eidolon, joins us to talk about his new band Act of Defiance, whose debut album The Birth and the Burial is out now. We discuss his departure from one of metal’s biggest bands, his pairing with former Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick and why they stuck together, what they were thinking when putting this new group together and why they are most definitely not a supergroup.

We discuss the video advertisement Disturbed had to pull after its incendiary imagery came frighteningly true this week with two journalists being murdered in Virginia. Should we be more careful with the way we express our art?

Darkest Hour’s Mike Schleibaum joins us again to discuss the latest happenings in the political world with another edition of “The Sadist Nation.” We cover a lot of ground about the 2016 Presidential candidates and some other political topics that are trending.
