(Metallica) and Degameth
(Megadeth) recreate the clash of the titans the way it should have been, presenting sets primarily comprising old-school classics. Featuring former members of MSOD and Mo Rage, Degameth nails some of the sickest, gnarliest guitar songs ever. Frontman George Hartwig -- thankfully -- has a voice that's deeper than Megadeth's Dave Mustaine's trademark piercing vocals, leaving the shrieking to lead guitarist Jon Perotti. Alcoholica is a side-project for drummer Opus and guitarist Ross, whose main gig is playing in Dead by Wednesday, a metalcore on the roster of Jamey Jasta's Stillborn Records. As Mustaine once asked, "Can you put a price on peace -- or a show like this?" Visit www.clevescene.com/blogs
