Since he got famously sacked from Metallica in the early days, Dave Mustaine has recorded fourteen albums under the Megadeth banner. Considered one of metal's "big four" along with Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, Megadeth has sold more than 38 million records worldwide.
Lamb of God
Formed in the '90s, LoG is considered to be a leader of the new wave of American Heavy Metal. For the past 15+ years, they have been stretching the boundaries of rock.
These guys are best known for the song "Betrayer," that was nominated for a Best Metal Performance Grammy in 2019.
The heavy metal scene in Sweden is unbelievable, and In Flames was a pioneer in Swedish death metal and melodic death metal.
Of course, everyone is wondering about the COVID numbers and if live events will actually happen or not. It is worth noting that as it is on tribal land, the casino does have some power to make independent decisions. So, dig up that old Vic Rattlehead t-shirt and prepare for a road trip and the return of live concerts as Megadeth plays Soaring Eagle Casino this Summer.
