MEGADETH: Classic Drum-Cam Footage Of Nick Menza Playing “In My Darkest Hour” Available

Sunday, 16th February 2014

Former MEGADETH drummer Nick Menza has uploaded official drum-cam footage of the band performing their classic “In My Darkest Hour” in Ventura, CA in 1990. The footage can be viewed below.

As previously reported, Menza has been writing, recording and producing constantly but only releasing sporadic singles for years. That will all change when he opens the floodgates with the upcoming release of his memoir, “Nick Menza: Megalife”, by acclaimed writer J. Marshall Craig.

“MEGADETH was a big part of my story,” Menza says, “but it was just one part. Jeff [Craig] has got me to talk about it all!”

Menza is currently negotiating a publishing deal for the book, which was written over the past 18 months. It features rare and never-before-seen photos of Menza with every band he’s ever been in, including, of course, MEGADETH.

“It’s a memoir of music,” writer Craig says. “But a lot more. It’s a book about chasing the ultimate gig, the ultimate drum setup, the ultimate sound and, it will come as no surprise to Nick’s fans, the ultimate aliens, government conspiracies and anything else his muse sees fit to lay across his path.”
