Video footage of OHM:, the band featuring former MEGADETH members Chris Poland (guitar) and Nick Menza (drums), performing on January 16 at The Baked Potato in Studio City, California can be seen below.
Menza’s addition to OHM: in September 2015 followed the passing of the band’s previous drummer, David Eagle, who suffered a heart attack and had open-heart surgery in May of that same year.
Former MEGADETH bassist James LoMenzo is no longer involved with Menza and Poland’s new project due to other commitments, and Robby Pagliari of OHM:, who can be seen in the video below, is now playing bass. The group is currently writing material in a significantly heavier vein.
Poland is best known for his work on MEGADETH’s first two albums — “Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!” (1985) and “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?” (1986).
Menza joined MEGADETH for the 1989 recording “Rust In Peace” and for the next nine years became associated with the band’s “classic” and most profitable era.
