He won’t be with his ensemble nor will he be singing all the metal classics, but Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine will be rocking out with a symphony on April 12, 2014. And before you ask, ‘Of destruction?’ we actually mean the San Diego Symphony!
We wouldn’t mind an epic orchestra-accompanied run of “Holy Wars…the Punishment Due” or “Hangar 18,” but according to U-T San Diego, the plan (so far) is to incorporate Mustaine into classical compositions from way back in the day including Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” (remember the helicopter scene from Apocalypse Now?) and Dvorak’s “Symphony No. 9.”
The genre-bending collab is part of the San Diego Symphony’s series of specials which mostly features international orchestras like the Irish Chamber and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras from the British Isles. And then…there’s Dave Mustaine.
The Trans-Siberian Orchestra and bands like Nightwish have already ventured into blending the polar opposites of metal rock and classical music, but Mustaine’s fiery brand of thrash-and-gnash should be interesting depending on how involved in the performance he is.
And for those who prefer Dave Mustaine in his usual setting, Megadeth will be releasing their latest album Super Collider on June 3.
