DETHKLOK, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and DANGEROUS TOYS Members Comment on the Late MELDRUM Guitarist Michelle Meldrum

Meldrum are pleased to announce that their long awaited third album Lifer is officially out now via Reversed Records. Lifer was released as a proud tribute to the late Meldrum founding guitarist Michelle Meldrum. Michelle tirelessly spent her career touring the world and sharing the stage with the likes of Motorhead, Black Label Society, Sepultura, Danzig and Nashville Pussy to name a few. During that time Michelle left an everlasting impact on the guitar world. To mark the release some of Michele’s closest friends Gene Hoglan (Testament, Death, Dark Angel, Dethklok) John Deservio (BLS, Cycle of Pain), James Lomenzo (BLS, Megadeth, White Lion) and Jason Mcmaster (Dangerous Toys, Watch Tower, Broken Teeth) have commented on their fallen friend.

Dethklok’s Gene Hoglan states, “It was and still is an honor to know Michelle and it is indeed with great pride that we release Lifer. I know she’s watching over us and smiling along with us at this wonderful day. I know I’m a better person for knowing Michelle, and I know she feels all of our love for her, as we feel hers for us. Through tragedy may we find joy, and through Lifer and all her other works, may Michelle find immortality. She’ll always be immortal to us. Remember, this is meant to be cranked up.”

Black Label Society’s James LoMenzo adds, “Michelle had the amazing ability to conjure almost any guitar style, from her earlier “Steve Vai” styled dexterity to the out and out muscular style that she later carried through with her own band Meldrum. A fine guitarist in the 80’s/90’s virtuoso tradition and one of the finest people you could ever come to know.”

Black Label Society’s John Deservio states, “First off I want to say how much I miss Michelle. She was a beautiful person inside and out and I am blessed to have known her. I miss you and love you Mich, R.I.P. baby.”

Dangerous Toys/Watchtower/Broken Teeth’s Jason McMaster adds, “Proud to call her a friend. Michelle Meldrum was and will always be one of my favorite and most inspiring guitarists and real people I’ve ever known. The world misses her.”
