Meldrum has released their latest album Lifer today, which you can pick up on iTunes. The album pays tribute to late guitarist Michelle Meldrum, who passed away at the age of 39 in 2008. Members of Dethklok, Black Label Society, and Dangerous Toys have each released statements remembering Michelle and commenting on Lifer.
Dethklok drummer Gene Hoglan (who recorded drums for Lifer) states, “Let me say this: Never have I obsessed over the recording of any album I’ve been involved in as I have with Meldrum’s latest. The tragic circumstances that took Michelle from us also provided us with a raser-sharp focus to record the most amazing album we could. Michele Madden, Laura Christine, and hell, even Rob Shallcross, our engineer, put forth performances of a lifetime, with each member’s full love and respect going into every nuance of every song. Not only to honor Michelle, but to also lay down some bad-ass music, which was ultimately what she stood for what MELDRUM stands for. I think the songs speak for themselves, and I, for one, have never been prouder to be a part of a family, let alone a project such as this. Metal with balls. Crank it up, indeed.”
