Hot New Band: Act Of Defiance
Megadave’s former colleagues hit the ground running with Act Of Defiance.
For Chris Broderick, quitting Megadeth was the end of a six-year chapter of his life. The desire to release his own music led him to leave the thrash behemoths last November.
“I don’t know if it was amicable,” he says of his departure. “When you leave a band like Megadeth, it’s for good.” His aptly named new project, Act Of Defiance – with fellow Megadeth escapee Shawn Drover on drums, former Scar The Martyr frontman Henry Derek on vocals and Matt Bachand of Shadows Fall on bass – is Chris’s new purpose. Their debut album Birth And The Burial is full of the creativity Chris held back during his Megadeth days.
