Glen Drover biography
Glen DROVER is a heavy metal guitarist from Ontario, Canada, most known from his work with MEGADETH (2004-2008). He has also been a member of EIDOLON (1993-2007), KING DIAMOND (1998-2000), TESTAMENT (2008, 2010) and QUEENSRYCHE (2012). In 2008, after leaving MEGADETH, DROVER initiated a progressive metal project that would ultimately produce the first album under his own name, ''Metalusion'' in April 2011. The band also includes Jim GILMOUR (Keyboards), Chris SUTHERLAND (Drums) and Paul YEE (Bass). The second album, ''Between Sea And Sky'' is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2014.

Influenced by guitarists such as Tony MACALPINE, Al DI MEOLA, Randy RHOADS, Greg HOWED, Michael ROMEO, it does not surprise that DROVER's sound is a mix of progressive rock, shred, fusion with a strong progressive metal character.

Review by b_olariu

3 stars Glen Drover is an excellent guitarist responsable for some top notch performance in bands such as power metal Eidolon , famouses King Diamond, Megadeth or Testament. After departed from Megadeth in 2008 he decided to go solo and the debut will appear in 2011 named Metalusion. Well, this is kick ass instrumental prog metal/jazz fusion release with plenty of memorable parts and top notch performance from the musicians. The line up is big, here we have Jim Gilmour on keyboards from Saga fame, a great drumer Chris Sutherland , plus some well known guests such as Vinnie Moore, his ex Megadeth mate Chris Poland, Fredrik 'kesson from Opeth and few more. Drover is very acomplished guitar player, here he manage to go with an amazing ease from prog metal to jazz fusion and often combine those two style very eficient. Also there are 5 cover versions from his fav musicins Al DiMeola with Egyptian Danza, Jean Luc Ponty - Don't Let The World Pass You By and Mirage, and Frank Zappa - The Purple Lagoon and Filthy Habits , all very well performed in this context. The rest of the pieces are also excellent like opening Ground zero and Frozen dream, superb performed with nice catchy guitars and elaborated keybords from Jim GIlmore from Saga. All in all a very worthy album in prog metal/jazz fusion field, very low rated here, really underrated. I was very pleasent surprised , 3.5 stars easy.
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
